Our friends over at Virgin Mobile have sent us the Virgin Mobile Motorola Triumph for us to review! It is a pre-paid android phone made by Motorola. It goes for $300 and you pay as you go. Now, let’s get started with the full review of the Motorola Triumph.
The Motorola Triumph has a very nice design tp it. It looks like a very big phone but, it is not to thick and is pretty light. However, even though it is a pre-paid/no contract phone it is a very feature rich device. For starters it has beautiful 4.1-inch WVGA touchscreen display, that displays almost anything very well. Under the display you have your 4 regular Android Buttons. The settings, home, back and search buttons. On the bottom of the phone you have your mini-HDMI port and micro USB port. The phone is only 0.4 inches thick so it is not very thick at all. On the left hand side you have your aluminum power/sleep button. On the right hand side you have the same aluminum design but, instead of the power/unlock button you have your volume rocker. On the top of the phone you have your 3.5mm Headphone Jack. On top of the screen you have your front-facing VGA camera, ear piece and “Motorola” logo. On the back you have your 5 mega-pixel camera with Flash, as well as the “Virgin Mobile” and “Motorola” logo. If you take the back cover off your will find your battery and your microSD card. It holds up to 32GB of space. Inside you have a 1 GHz processor that will make the phone fast when using it. It also has 512MB of RAM which will help speed things up again. The Triumph also has 2 speakers both on each side of the phone, located at the bottom of the device. The sounds quality is pretty good for a mobile phone. So, as you can see the Virgin Mobile Motorola Triumph is a very feature rich phone, which proves that even though it is a pre-paid it can still play against the by-contract smartphones.
The Motorola Triumph is running Android 2.2 Gingerbread. Now, Motorola’s own User Interface , MOTOBLUR, is not on the device. This makes so people happy and others may be a little disappointed. It is a very clean version of Android, with some add-on’s from Virgin Mobile. But, for the most part it is just stock Android which many people will like. The Triumph runs Android very fast, and that is thanks to it 1GHz Processor and the 512MB of RAM. It does feature come pre-loaded apps like Virgin Mobile My Account and Download, Virgin Mobile Live, WHERE, Poynt, Twidroid, and the regular google applications. Now, a great app that is pre-loaded is Virgin Mobile Live! Inside the app you can access Music, Videos, Blog, Events, Like Us, Profile, and About. It is described as “The only place to feed your addiction to new music”. In the app you get access to live music stream that is hosted by the great DJ Abbey Braden. The best part is that it is free, it also has videos from Virgin Mobile’s FreeFest, find shows that are nearby, and much more. It works over 3G and WiFi. When we were using it on 3G it was coming in great, with almost no buffering required at all. Overall, Virgin Mobile Live is an app that you need to check out. The entire experience of Android 2.2 Gingerbread on the Virgin Mobile Motorola Triumph is great.
