Motorola Triumph Love or Hate

29 Jun Motorola Triumph Love or Hate



update: VM said no to update for the Triumph. All is not lost for getting GPS fix. see video I posted Triumph there and back. Customizing and getting back to stock. I show a bit of a custom ROM (Sharp ROM) that fixes the GPS issue. will be fully reviewing the ROM very soon for this phone

This video is meant to compliment the comparison review of the Motorola Triumph from Virgin Mobile USA going over most asked questions and comments. Things to know before purchase. read additional info after video was released.

Triumph, some love it and some hate it. That is why I only recommend seeing if you love the phone by purchasing at a local retailer that gives a full refund such as bestbuy or radioshack.

update 08/22/2011: 30% off sale seems to be over, be sure and call best buy mobile store. at this point if you have a phone with VM already wait for the next sale. I am guessing radio shack will have sale sometime soon. or there is wait and see what optimus black will be. which should be out in couple months. Though benchmarks don’t look as fast but still almost 3 times that of the opimus v… if you look at my channel I have put optimus black bencharks in my favorites so you can see it running. the hype is better battery usage and brighter screen and wireless media streaming rather then hdmi out. Do I think Triumph is worth the full 299.99? not if you already have the Optimus V and don’t care about flash support. It seems that since Triumph is for VM only it only has the 1900mhz. It’s been reported that VM other phones only use 1900mhz and the 800mhz not used because that is for roaming. and VM doesn’t have roaming. As stated in video if you look at Nexus S problems the signal was fixed when sprint did update and the fix took about 2 months.

The Triumph appeals to a class of people who enjoy hacking and customizing. Something to play with. as most of motorola smartphones have a locked boot loader and the triumph doesn’t making it rootable. and appeals to those who want more faster prepaid phone hardware wise and flash support NOW.

If wanting hotspot and looking at purchasing optimus V there are some with android 2.2.2 where it is not working out of the box as told to me by current 2.2.2 Op V owners.

Netflix now supported by all android 2.2 and up. Triumph runs great. Optimus V looks good (no green line like the modded apk). Intercept very very choppy.

Due to popular request posting the Best Buy Coupon for 10% off regular price non contract phones, good till 01-31-2012. You can print or just click link on cell phone and show cashier at the check out. They Only need to hand enter the code.

I want to correct my self about speaker phone issues pertaining to echo. I tested out what you were saying. Funny everybody I talk to says I sound fine but I am just a bit pickier. So when I got on the receiving end of the Triumph I heard very slight echo. This seems to be noise canceling mic issue and doesn’t happen with bluetooth. If you look up other way more expensive phones you can find that issue and I have also seen people make their own patches. So at this point who knows if it is hardware or software.

If you are having problems with virgin mobile phones receiving message of “within range of a Sprint Private network” talk to virgin mobile about an issue with airave and what they can do to get a phone flashed so that will work near a airave device. Hopeful sprint will fix this issue asap.

Can change the Network EVDO or CDMA only by dialing *#*#4636#*#* from number pad or using app that takes you to the setting in the phone called “Network”

    remove battery and plug with USB cable to computer. Hold power button and see if the computer recognizes it. even as an unknown device.

    Works ways better with custom ROM. Dam shame what VM and Moto did by not releasing the software update.

    Posted at 14:01h, 29 June

    just be sure to use a custom rom. super easy on triumph to set up I have video posted "triumph there and back" super easy to make it stock. ROMS recommended are u9000, sharp, and MTDEV CM7

    I for one and glad my Triumph was stolen at gun point..
    I quickly went back to my beloved OV..
    However as of now I fully upgraded to the Evo V 3D..
    Haven't regretted my purchase as well as the gun now hold close.
    Ill be damned if my V will be taken from myself..

    The Triump isent really a bad phone once ROOTed and install a custom ROM (Harmonia, ext.).. There is even an easy GPS fix as well however its rather pointless as the phone is still slow due to higher standards that many apps dish out..

    @mstechify – thank you very much. 🙂 does this app improve the signal issue on the Triumph?

  • mstechify
    Posted at 14:01h, 29 June

    no root needed

    Hi Mstechify, I might getting the Motorola Triumph for Christmas and you showed an app on the. Triumph called "Network Signal Info" by KABITS; do you need root access to use application? Or can it be used on non-rooted Triumph? Will this app help with the signal issue? I live out in the country and my signal is OK, as I'm watching this video I I have 2-3 bars, but it goes all over the place (1-6) all the time, I get 1X sometimes on the OptimusV. Thanks in advanced:)

    people frustrated that while it's hardware is nice the manufacture did not put in an update that was already made. but not cost effective for Moto or VM. Triumph twin sisters sold over seas got their update to 2.3 a long time ago. also Moto screwed up and didn't include the SSL for aGPS to work but there is a custom ROM that fixed that. So unless you got to save you 25/month plan and willing to flash new ROM best get something else as there is better supported. but I still use Triumph

    charging port I have had one go on me but VM sent me a replacement 1 day air. and I kinda was to blame little. plugged in and using phone and yanked it up while plugged in.

    Thanks for your comment!:) I have heard the charging port stops working after like 6 months. @Mstechify. I like the design of the Triumph. 🙂 hope I get this phone…

  • The_LG_V20_User
    Posted at 14:01h, 29 June

    Is it true that the USB port is up-side-down? Most people have said that the USB port is up-side-down on the Triumph and the Motorola Triumph was made by Huawei! @Mstechify

    @ Mstechify – I just subscribed to your channel. Keep up the awesome videos. Love your videos!!!! 🙂

    as said most all of my issues are gone with the custom ROM. you can get an updated ROM for it that is gingerbread and even ICS but not everything works but they are working on it. the froyo custom ROM I speak of "Sharp" has everything working.

    I'm hoping to get the Triumph before the end of the year. I'll have 30 days to try it when I get it. 🙂 I hope I love the Motorola Triumph. The only bad thing as of right now with the Triumph is the outdated OS (2.2.2), do you have any other issues besides the GPS? How's the internal memory on the Triumph? I heard that the Triumph has ibternal memory issues? How's the Triumph on Stock 2.2? @Mstechify

  • mstechify
    Posted at 14:01h, 29 June

    in that case I love my Triumph and my 25 plan and have trouble moving on to anything else. I have a Sharp custom rom on it that fixes the GPS issue. Motorola forgot to add a security link to enable aGPS. But Bsyds ported a ROM for a sister phone and brought new love. I have video posted how easy it is to customize and take back to stock. right now Triumph are cheap. those that love their Op v though have hard time getting anything with better signal. but apps n games camera better on Triumph

    I'm not a Samsung fan, I'm more of a Motorola fan. :)and I wanna keep my $25 grandfathered plan and I wsnt a bigger screen. I would be upgrading from the Optimus V. @Mstechify
