Sidekick LX Review

 

The Sidekick LX's screen alone makes it a worthy upgrade to the Sidekick 3, and it's a messaging-addict's dream.

T-Mobile Sidekick LX review

 

Though they share the same name, the T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 should not be confused with the original T-Mobile Sidekick LX , which it will eventually replace. The Sidekick LX 2009 is a stand-out with its slimmer design and gorgeous, high-resolution...

The T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 features a beautiful, high-resolution display and has a thinner design. The handheld also offers 3G, GPS, Flash video support, and Twitter and Facebook integration.

The GPS integration is a bit clunky, since you can't find your location within Microsoft Live Search. T-Mobile's 3G network isn't as widely available as other carriers, and there's no integrated Wi-Fi. The camera's picture quality wasn't the best, and...

With the design improvements and addition of features such as 3G and GPS, the T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 graduates from a simple messaging handheld to a real connected, all-in-one communication device for the younger crowd.

Sidekick LX 3G

 

The newest version of the Sidekick LX ($200 with a two-year contract, as of 5/1/09), T-Mobile's popular messaging phone traditionally aimed at teenagers, sports grown-up features such as 3G support, GPS, and an improved, more sophisticated design. But...

Gorgeous high-resolution display Excellent QWERTY keyboard

Awkward button placement Only 6MB of mailbox storage

I'll update this review as I play with the Sidekick LX more. One thing I am certain of: Sidekick fans will definitely appreciate this upgrade

T-Mobile Sidekick LX 3G Phone Review

 

Gorgeous high-resolution display ; Excellent QWERTY keyboard

Awkward button placement ; Only 6MB of mailbox storage

3G support and a 3.2-megapixel camera are great additions, but other messaging phones are way ahead of the Sidekick LX.

T-Mobile Sidekick review

 

It's so hard to keep a good secret these days. Just ask T-Mobile . Word of its new Sidekick model, codenamed Gekko, got out months ago and was all but confirmed when the ruthless blogosphere got hold of some internal T-Mobile documents about the...

The T-Mobile Sidekick offers customizable shells for extra personalization. The phone also features stereo Bluetooth support and a 2-megapixel camera with video recording and playback. The handheld continues to offers strong messaging capabilities.

The inclusion of Wi-Fi or 3G support would have been nice. The phone's speaker was very soft, and the video recording and playback is limited.

With the new features, extra level of customization, and affordable price tag, the T-Mobile Sidekick is a good choice for the carrier's younger customers looking for an all-in-one communication device.

T-Mobile Sidekick LX PDA Phone

 

This stylish PDA phone works wonders for messaging but can be awkward for phone calls.

Great for e-mail, text messaging, and IM ; Cool design

Awkward to dial phone numbers ; Sluggish Internet speed

I didn't like the Sidekick LX, but I can see why other people might. Since I'm not a master messenger, I can't overlook the awkward phone-dialing design, the sluggish Internet, and the too-flashy audio-visual effects

Review: T-Mobile Sidekick LX

 

I've always loved Danger's line of fliptop two-thumbed smartphones, and this is easily the best one yet. At less than two pounds and 2.4 x...

Uses standard 3.5 mm headphone jack, which works with all of my earbuds and headphones without requiring me to shell out for some stupid freaking adapter. (Do you catch my drift there, Apple?) The tactile feedback of the well-designed thumbboard still...

No Wifi. MP3 player has just 120 megabytes of built-in memory. Cruddy non-intuitive interface. Speaker is tinny and fuzzy

T-Mobile Sidekick LX

 

If smartphone keyboards seem too cramped, spread out with the Sidekick LX.

Easy to use. Big, well-spaced keyboard. Roomy screen.

Huge to carry. Mediocre phone. No stereo Bluetooth or video support. ; Watch the T-Mobile Sidekick LX Video Review!
