Helio Drift


The small cellular carrier Helio marches to the beat of its own drummer. Because of this, you'll find unique features on Helio's phones, but you might also be perplexed by what's missing. If Helio's mix of content and options appeals to you, though,...

Looks great. Nice interface. Good voice quality. Good camera

Annoying Bluetooth settings. Not many people have Helio, making it hard to take mobile-to-mobile minutes

If you're intrigued by Helio's MySpace client social-networking software, the Drift is the best way to experience it.

The Drift does everything I need; text, MP3, web, myspace integration, email, camera, free M2M the list goes on and on... and the GPS is AMAZING, I us it everyday. Helio support is very helpful, they have taken very good care of me, and there hold...

The Drift does everything I need. It is quit possibly the best friend I've ever had

The only down side is not having a full key pad, so if you text/email a lot you should get the Helio Ocean

Helio Drift (black)


I do not like the phone. The characters are so small on the screen that they are almost invisible. The sound is bad, the phone slides back while I talk. Very confusing menu. You have to have small fingers to push the buttons. Bad product.

Nice color

Small characters, bad reception
