NOT an improvement on the Convoy U640
on January 18, 2013
When this phone was released I was hoping for an upgraded version of my beloved Convoy; but the so-called "improvements" are not worth the "flash" about it. I didn't realize a flash player and flashlight would tax the other features the Convoy1 had(such as the internal memory,music player and the sturdy flip hinge).
The more I used the Convoy2, the more I hated it.
1. The first thing I noticed was the weak flip hinge. If you pick up a Convoy2 carelessly the phone falls open.
The Convoy stays closed no matter how you pick it up.
2. The internal memory is pathetic. I kept getting memory alerts on accepting text or pic messages; "insufficient memory cannot load music"; "delete files"; etc. There was a 16GB micro card in it,too.
The Convoy has great memory without a micro card.
3. You would think that files and data on a micro sd card would transfer from phone A1 to phone A2, correct? NO THEY DON"T! The Convoy2 couldn't detect any photos, pics or ringtones on the card at all.
The Convoy read pics and music on a micro card from my LG Swift. Not even the same maker. How about that?
Overall, the Convoy U660 is a lousy phone without comparing it to the first version due to the flip hinge and memory. Needless to say, I switched back to and still use my Convoy U640!
