hi i never used this phone but i really want it and a ton of people are saying yes its horrible and some are sayings its wonderful i dont know what to do pleae help me and thank you o yea i forgot i have Virgin Mobile USA so i could only buy those phones thank you(:
The Triumph is horrible. Horrible signal. Horrible bluetooth capabilities. Can't play one song on Pandora completely through...but it catches all the commercials though! HORRIBLE! While on a call, the screen is uncooperative; plays peek-a-boo with you and multitasking is virtually impossible while a call is in progress. Soooo horrible. It can't hold a candle to the Optimus V in any category. It's worse than the slow loading, freeze fest Blackberry 8530. Did I say how horrible the reception is? Well, is beyond horrible. I have the Optimus V sitting in the passenger seat just to see & compare performance. LG Optimus V has a signal nearly all of the time. The motorola horror is doing good to keep a charge. I have to wiggle the usb cable to get the charge connection. Mind you this is a brand new handset. I'm so disgusted I could puke...hold on! Okay I'm back, where was I? Ohhhhh yeah, the the horror phone. Don't mess with the calibration...at all! Leave it alone! You've been warned! This fone laggggggs. Select an app...go take a nap while it loads. Sheesh. It's horrible. I think I need to puke again...
Warning!!!!! Don't waste your money. This phone is riddled with problems that Motorola nor Virgin Mobile have any intentions on correcting. I'll start with my biggest complaint which has me on my 2nd (going on my 3rd) phone. The usb port which is used to charge the phone & connect it to a cpu is flawed. Its a small tab which over time wore down with all the plugging in that a android phone (& this one in particular) requires. It came to the point where I would need to have the phone sitting in a certain position to make a connection & charge which made the phone useless while charging because it would lose the connection if moved even a little. The sad part is that straight out the box it never made a solid connection 100% of the time & gradually got worse. & it didn't help that the cord included is like 2 feet long which necessitated the use of an extension cord. The phone that Virgin Mobile sent last week immediately had issues with the hdmi. I had to wiggle the cord to get it to connect. As with the first phone I was never able to get the bluetooth to connect for more than 2 minutes of conversation & the GPS will not lock my location at all. Two basic features on smartphones that do not work. The "snapdragon" processor has an incredible lag & I'm wondering if the 4th phone will correct all my problems or if it will need replaced every couple of months to correct the usb problem which is sure to wear down again with the normal use that is expected of a smartphone. Fortunately Virgin Mobile warranties their phones for a year & I put a 2 year replacement plan on the thing when I got it at Radio Shack. It seems now that it will be well worth the extra money. I guess I have to suffer through until a high quality & reliable phone is released on a prepaid carrier. I thought this was the one but I couldn't have been more wrong.

This phone has boon awesome. Fast internet, you tube, and mail. The camcorder, cam and games from android are great! Excellent phone no complaints.
[deleted post]First of all, the Motorola Triumph is exclusive to VM. If u look at the placement of the buttons and speakers then u will see the difference between the Huawei Ideos X6 and Motorola Triumph. Even if it is a rebranded Huawei device, they are stepping up their game.

You guys can check out the specs of above models on Gsmarena. I assume the OEM of this device is Foxconn and is rebranded by different companies.
The only bad thing I notice is battery life. Obviously the first impression when I opened the box was "Why the hell the battery is so SMALL?". Otherwise, this phone is great.
Fred, 21 Jul 2011If the camera is bad, take it back. My first was bad so I tried a new one and it's much better.in which way was it bad? Gonna get this soon, so i'd like to know what to look out for. Thanks
I am glad I still have my Optimus V because this piece of crap is going back to the store. As another poster has stated, this phone has a much weaker signal pull than the Optimus V. Also, when I first paired my Motorola H17 BT headset with the phone, I had to restart the phone to stop it from ringing. Since then, it has had issues connecting reliably. The battery life is crap! I might try another one just to be sure I didn't pick up a lemon, but if it behaves like this one, it will go back as well. We shall see.
Triumph is not as good as OptimusV in a non-perfect environment:
Has a front camera.
Reception is weak 0-1 bar where OptimusV would show 1-2 bars steady signal,
Battery drains very quickly, about twice faster than in my Optimus V (weak reception only makes it worth),
GPS receiver is weak, fails to pick signal where OptimusV would take only a few seconds,
No hot spot feature unlike in OptimusV,
Costs more than twice as much as OptimusV.
nothing, 20 Jul 2011the camera is really bad.If the camera is bad, take it back. My first was bad so I tried a new one and it's much better.
