Imagio or Storm 2
      #35094 - 11/10/09 06:23 PM

Hi...our reviews are great..It seemed like you really liked the Imagio...I am torn between these two.....my main needs are great voice phone first. Then relatively easy texting...occasional email, occasional web, etc.... I have tried both in the store and like them both...but there is something about the Imagio that I am really drawn too...the simple strudy design I think...but I am worried about all of the slow, instability issues that are usually reported with WM phones....of course, BB has not been without issues recently...and I am concerned about the long term reliability of the Piezo system on the Storm 2..seems very untested and potentially subject to failure...I guess I am looking for someone to tell me that the Imagio is just to great to pass up...or I will likely get the Storm 2...thanks!!

We still have our review unit in house and I can tell you I'm going to hate sending it back. It really is a very nice smartphone. Voice quality is good-- no problems there.

Thanks..I assume you are referring to the Imagio Curious, have you had the Unread SMS Count problem? Seems like others report the Touch Flo 3d shows 1 unread message when there really are no unread messages?

So, do you like the Imagio better than the Storm 2? Feedback bery much appreciated.

Yes I was meant the Imagio-- sorry to be unclear. No, I don't have the unread SMS bug.

The Storm2 is a great improvement over the first model but I still just don't enjoy the extra motion required to press and move the screen down for each action. It really slows me down, esp. when typing.

I like the Imagio a lot, but I do have the unread sms bug which is a slight pain. I've found a couple sites that have offered a solution for it, but I just hard reset it and it goes away. I've toyed with Storms and was not a fan. I've also heard a lot of users at work give unfavorable feedback about the Storms. Like mentioned elsewhere, the onscreen typing with the Imagio is nice, the camera is great, wm 6.5 is a nice improvement over 6.1.

My vote would be the Imagio, but its also my phone of choice. Slight bias
