    HTC Mogul Vs. Touch??

    Hey guys... I have the Mogul, and so far Im very happy with it. Works great, I added a lot of apps that are very helpful (vtap, sirius satellite, etc..). I don't use the Bluetooth cause i have a 2nd phone I use bluetooth with so it's not a concern. Also, I noticed I very rarely use the actual keyboard on this one.
    However, I heard that there are a ton of issues with it. I read on here that Sprint is allowing(in some cases) people to switch out their mogul for the touch.

    I checked it out, and I like the touch, but am not sure if I can use all the same apps on there, or it's worth switching it out.

    Any suggestions?On one hand I am very happy with the Mogul, but Im concerned some of those problems might appear, and if I can do the samethings on the Touch as the Mogul without worrying about problems, it might be worth trading it in.
    Any people with the same experience or advice, please help me out.

    the touch and mogul run the same system, so software runs fine on one or the other. its the hardware that's different between the two, and you know what those basically are.

    i don't know a thing about the mogul or its problems, but if i know i had a mogul that worked well, i would not take the touch for any reason. i like the hardware keys, keyboard could be useful too, but the touch isn't all that different if software is your main concern

    It seems from alot of people i have talked to the mogul its hit and miss. some people have ones that are great others are crap. Just started at Sprint and am considering between the touch and Blackberry 8830. i've played with both and the touch is pretty sweet but the main reason I'm considering the Blackberry because it will sync better with my macbook.

    Yea, I heard it was hit and miss as well.. not many complaints so far on my mogul...
    I read yesterday that the mogul is considered more high end phone and touch a more low end..
    However, spec wise, the touch has more memory, so Im not sure, aside from the xtra buttons why that is...

    I still can't decide if I should switch to the Touch.. some things keeping me here are that (even if it might be next year), the mogul should be upgraded w/ both Rev A and it's internal GPS, both should be a nice addition...
    If anyone who has used both devices has any input, please go ahead..

    thanks.. i went to the sprint store again today to check it out.. and this time it was on the usual phone clamps instead of in the hands of the employee's. However, apparantly(or so the guy said) on those clamps it doesn't work well. It was a)stuck in horizontal view, and the touch screen didnt work... Not sure if it really was the clamps or just might be a bug because i soft reset it and reg. restarted it and it I couldnt click anything besides the contact, and call, end button.

    Waiting to see what people will say who have used it..

    Hope you got the 400mhz touch, not the 201mhz CPU one.

    Well been playing with my new touch today. So far I think it's pretty sweet. I did get the 400mhz one. I think all the ones for Sprint are. It did take awhile to get all my settings and email setup but is pretty easy. One thing that sucked it would let me transfer my whole phone book through bluetooth so ha to do it one by one. i think the only thing that is hard to get used to is that the keyboard is qwerty for typing but like the one on a blackberry pearl so kinda frustrating as far as that though you can swithc to other ones pretty easily. We'll have to see if it gets easier. So far I like it but again it's only been since about 11am I've been playing with it but so far so good.

    I was in this debate between the Touch and the Mogul when my PPC-6700 died earlier this month. I had looked around for a few weeks and basically I gathered that the Touch seemed to be less buggy, more stable (prob due in large part to it's higher RAM) and easier to work with right out the box. However, the on screen keyboard is really the problem. There's all sorts of substitutes out there, but nothing is really as easy as the hard keyboard of the Mogul (and other similar devices like the PPC-6700, etc).

    So basically, how bad do you need a hard keypad?

    I personally really need one, and as a result, I think I will be selling the HTC Touch I bought on eBay last week and keeping the Mogul that was given to me as part of the insurance swap for my PPC-6700. The Mogul had been sitting up in my room waiting to be sold, but luckily I was lazy.

    Also, I think the latest Sprint 2.17 ROM has solved many of the problems in the Mogul making it much more stable. But from what I've seen from discussions on the Touch, there really aren't any problems period.

    I used to have a mogul (p4000) or i should say 5 of them... overall the biggest piece of sh ever built. I had to swap my unit 5 times because of a number of different issues as of phone locking up by itself, wifi not working, screen not working, freezing every now and then, bluetooth not working, issues with earpiece volume... and i can keep naming issues... also the wife has swapped hers 4 times! anywho, they finally gave me the touch. as of today no problems whatsoever. the only program i'm having problems is with the spb backup 1.5.5. the program installs fine but desn't seem to back up! ( i bought this proggie 'cause i got tired of loosing info everytime i had to format the mogul). also the battery isn't that good on the touch
    The only thing i miss is the wifi. but i think i will survive living on a edvo zone and having unlimited data plan (but i'm waiting to get the microSDIO WiFi 11g Card ( http://www.spectec.com.tw/products_...dptype=w1sdw823 ) . The wife is getting her touch next week.

    For spb back up, go into tools,advanced options and turn off, Stop Processes before back up.

    It stopped working a couple months ago with it on(4 units), but off it works fine.
    Ps, the backk ups work well, used one last night, its complete.

    Doh, cut & paste of a long post. grr don't you hate that.

    Anyways, here goes again.

    I am stuck on the fence with this as well.

    I initially liked the 6800 and would have jumped at the opportunity to "upgrade" from my 6700 to one, as it felt as the natural progression.

    But in reading many threads on the Mogul and problems people claim to have with them, it has put me in doubt.

    In trying to look thru the threads on the subject of "mogul vs touch", I see many people claiming there are many other threads on the same subject, reading those of threads, also claims many other threads on the same subject, but ending up without any real useful information or just plain making people even more confused.

    Making it hard for one like me have to read thru and sift out the whining, bragging, touting for the one that person might be the owner of at the time or post about there's already another thread on this posted by the same person on every thread about the subject..

    Now to give you a little background on where I come from to perhaps help me along on making a choice.

    True to each his own, but that's why we have reviews on things, so others can judge things using others' experiences. One personally can not base their choice on thier own exprience or needs, without having both, each item/device to compare for enough time spent with each device.

    I love gadgets, the geekiness / nerdiness of things, I enjoy hacking, editing, customizing, troubleshooting, upgrading, updating, being on the cutting edge. But at the end of the day having a working device, not just more head aches with something thats more trouble than its worth. I'd rather customize rather and troubleshoot any day..

    That said I am a little late on the 6800 as an upgrade to the 6700 boat. But am I too late? Is the 6800 as an upgrade a thing of the pass, now being surpassed by other devices, such as the 6900 the next best thing?

    So you can say I am an enthusist at heart.

    I enjoyed the features of 6700 alot. Wifi once in a while to show to friends when and if it stayed connected. Or to actually look something up on the net. But this is comming from a carrier with only 1x net access (at best) it felt more like dialup, but atleast I had the option. Now on a EVDO carrier, net browsing is nice.

    I didn't mind using the popup keyboard on the 6700, but once in a while it would cover the place I was typing into, so I switch the hardware keyboard or perhaps sometimes when I had to type something a bit longer, like this post I would as well.

    ATM I have actually replaced my 6700 with a Treo 700wx and I am quite happy with it. I don't miss the wifi, since it's on an EVDO carrier.

    I liked the hardware buttons on the 6700, but didn't use them that much, and don't use them on my treo at all except for occasional volume & the mute switch. I find I use the front dial / end and dpad alot.

    I like using the PDA/phone alot and often. I enjoy taking random pictures. I use it as my computer away from home often.

    So that being said, what's your opinion or suggestions? Or perhaps any questions I have not answered that might help you help me make a choice?

    Thanks,

    HTC Touch First Impression.

    Ok I got the HTC Touch.

    It's nice, compact. Solid construction, rubbery skin feel. Screen is much brighter than I expected after reasing other's reviews. Much more than Treo 700wx and PPC-6700.

    Using stock keypads makes you really miss some sort of keypad/board..

    I miss the left and right softkeys, as well as an OK button.. It should have these atleast at bear minimum with Windows Mobile.

    That proprietery usb/mic connector.. Why? And the Adapter / cables they give are for 2.5mm mic instead of 3.5mm standard? Again, why?

    Ok the sync cable, is standard mini USB. Why not include one that works with the proprietery connection? Instead you have to use the adapter.

    Same goes for the charger, it's standard mini USB, so you have to use that adapter. Ditto on the car charger.. (not included)

    The microSD slot is behind a silvery plastic side panel, it's actually about 3 times the length required to cover the slot. If you run your finger on it it starts to pop out slightly.

    Personally I can do without a keyboard, but would have liked the 2 soft keys and ok button in the front cluster.

    Gonna have to play with it some more, I did notice that Sprint uses the 60610 PRL instead of the 20230 with the other phones I've had.

    It connected data quicker, calls are quicker and internet seems quicker more stable speed.
