"The Strobe's alright."

The good: Fast texting, call clarity, good internet.

The bad: The screen connectors wear out easily, so it has about a year's worth of usage.

Summary: I am currently on my third model of this phone, and it's time for a new one. I got the Strobe on September 20, 2006. I'm sixteen years old, so you can imagine my delight with the Qwerty keyboard, fast texting, call clarity, internet access, etc. This phone was my pride and joy... until May rolled around. The screens stopped "talking to each other", and they both appeared blue, with no display. My mother is a technician, and the technical manager of a company who works on cell phones, towers that provide signals, etc. She looked at the phone, and then said that the connector between the screens was poor and had come loose. I got a new phone, of the same model, thinking maybe the first was just from wear-and-tear and poor handling of the phone. In July 2007, however, I dropped the phone in my pool. It was underwater for literally a second or two, and the battery quit working, and the battery wouldnt hold a charge. I got my third model of the Strobe, that month, and by May 2008, the screens stopped working again. This phone provides anywhere between 8 to 12 months of use. While I can still make calls, I can no longer see the display.
This phone is very convenient, but it's not worth it's short life.
