Cingular 8125 Reviews

Newsfactor has reviewed the Cingular 8125 and write: “Best of all, the new handset incorporates a higher-speed EDGE component that is capable of delivering data at speeds ranging between 150 and 200 Kbps. Sensitive data stored on the smartphone can be protected by requiring the use of a password every time the device is turned on.” They Conclude? “Stylish and compact, the Cingular 8125 combines an admirably designed keyboard with the power of the Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system and its associated suite of Mobile Office applications.”

CNET has reviewed the Cingular 8125 and writes, about the device’s camera: “The Cingular 8125’s 1.3-megapixel camera produces above-average pictures with bright colours, but keep in mind, camera phones are good for quick snapshots only and won’t replace a good stand-alone digital camera. We do appreciate the fact that Cingular offers a camera-less version of the 8125, since more and more businesses are prohibiting the use of camera phones for security reasons.”

Engadget Mobile has produced a Cingular 8125 review and write: “But if you’re seriously considering dropping $350 for this, its ability to make calls is just one necessary function, and possibly not the most important one. And it’s the non-phone features that set the Cingular 8125 review apart. Like many of the latest smartphones, this device offers built-in WiFi, Bluetooth, and a high-speed EDGE radio, making it a cinch to get online. Unlike many of the other phones out there, the Cingular 8125 review’s QWERTY keyboard is a dream. While the Treo’s keyboard is still considered by many to be the standard-bearer, this phones keyboard is actually roomier and easier to use. Backlit and with slightly raised keys, the Cingular 8125 review makes it easy to bang out emails, text messages, and do quick web searches.”

Mobile Tech Review has reviewed the Cingular 8125 smartphone, here’s a little about the device’s camera: HTC cameras haven’t set the world on fire, though their software (after buying IA) is lovely. Their recent models have taken a turn for the better and the Cingular 8125 is an example of a decent camera phone. Its 1.3 megapixel CMOS camera takes attractive photos by camera phone standards with relatively little noise under good lighting and reasonable colour accuracy. It lacks the XV6700’s unappealing pervasive purple tint, and has just a bit of blue colour bias. Photos could use more sharpening, but that’s easily handled with your favourite desktop image editing program. Try to take a photo at twilight or in dim indoor conditions and you will see grain, but sizing the photo down or using a noise reducing filter on your computer can turn out usable images. The camera’s LED flash isn’t useful unless you’re very close to your subject (living subjects will hate you because the flash is blinding and constant), but it makes a wonderful flashlight. Turn on the flash in the camera application and it stays on until you turn it off or exit the camera app.

Mobility Site has reviewed the Cingular 8125 another variant of the HTC Wizard, here’s their conclusion: I really like this device. Other than GPS, which I only use on occasion, this thing is the complete package. It has good data speeds, a great sounding phone, and a built in Pocket PC that ain’t too shabby. The slide out keyboard makes web browsing (lots of forum posting) a snap. The camera is useless, but who uses a camera on a phone anyway? The Cingular 8125 has a great form factor that is a tad thick, but very pocketable. With the miniSD card, I can load this device up with all the mindless games I like to play. If I had to pick one device I have tested to carry for an extended period of time, it would be a toss up between this and the iPAQ h6515, with the Cingular 8125 winning out due to its superb battery life.
