Motorola Renegade V950 (Sprint) review: Motorola Renegade V950 (Sprint)

 

The Motorola V950 has a sturdy, intuitive design with a crisp display and ergonomic controls. Its feature set is admirable and it offers good call and music quality.

The Motorola V950's streaming-video quality is poor and internal memory is small.

Motorola Renegade V950 (Sprint)

 

The Motorola V950 is the fifth QChat phone that Sprint has released this year. We've seen the Sanyo Pro 200, the Sanyo Pro 700, the LG LX400, and the Samsung Z400, and now we come back to the company that pioneered push-to-talk in the first place . As...

Motorola Renegade V950 Review

 

Sprint's QChat rollout has been fairly successful thus far, but the initial lineup was a bit, well, bland. And rightfully so, as they were trying to reach a market of mostly bland users who cared more about how their phone took a beating rather than if...

Motorola Renegade V950

 

Motorola's new Renegade V950 cell phone is the perfect illustration of what can happen when brawn meets beauty. Cell phones seem to be getting smaller, thinner and more compact, but Motorola's new model proves that a strong, rugged phone can be just as...

The V950 has what can almost be described as an exoskeleton; a protective outer shell that keeps its precious insides safe. Durability and ease of use seem to have been a key factor in the Renegade's design. Aside from a clamshell form, the phone also...

"Good and bad, mostly bad1"

 

The front of this phone is glass and one drop = boom, done! Sprint will try and pass this off as a flagship durable phone but that's only because they want it gone. The software is SLOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWEER then molasses and things just plain didn't work....

I figured that all military phones were created equally, and I was wrong. My samsung rugby was by far the best phone I have ever used. This phone cant even shake a stick in the rugbys direction. If you need a pretty basic phone for making calls and...

Loud ringer ; somewhat durable ; not afraid to pull it out and use it when it is raining cats and dogs

horrible battery life ; the screen gets rather messed up very quickly ; had to replace 8 times with sprint, which is quite the runaround
