    This is the best Virgin Mobile phone to date. The display has really good pixel density, although it is not an IPS display. The phone is very snappy and because it comes with stock Android 2.2 Froyo, it's not bogged down with skins or any Motorola crapware. The battery lasts about a day with typical use, which is normal for smartphones. The only faults with this phone that I can find are that the camera is pretty awful in low-light conditions, and that compared to the Optimus V, the Triumph seems to get slightly worse cell reception, although it's only noticeable in places that I already had low bars before. Installing CM7 (which is Android 2.3 Gingerbread) on this phone greatly increases the value as well, as it increases performance even further, and gives the front-facing camera some use. It also fixes an occasional problem on stock where data is connected, but no data works until data is switched on and off. A version if the MIUI rom is available for this phone, as well. Obviously, this phone still can not compete with the likes of the iPhone4S or the Galaxy Nexus, but in the prepaid space, it is top of the line. Right now, the Triumph can be found for about $250 online, and if you are certain you want to get a prepaid phone, this is the phone to get, along with Virgin Mobile's unlimited data plans starting at $35/month.

    The Motorola Triumph was meant to be a strong prepaid phone, and it is, but with many corners cut. The biggest problem the phone has are the numerous bugs most likely due to shoddy and rushed QA. Whoever did the software for the phone forgot to include the default Android dictionary, so auto-correct does not work nor double spacebar for an automatic period. The first time you get it, GPS takes over 10 minutes to get a lock, and every time after 1-3 minutes. The GPS is excruciatingly slow and every Triumph has these problems. The battery life is subpar, the data and reception fluctuate constantly and gets down to 1x often.

    It has a few redeeming qualities. The 4" inch screen and 800x480 resolution is pretty good for a prepaid phone that only costs $35 a month (previously $25) for unlimited everything. I would personally rather have 2gb of faster reliable data than the current extremely slow and flaky unlimited data. It packs a 2nd gen 1 gHz Snapdragon and Adreno 205 GPU so it's fairly powerful. The last redeeming quality is it's near stock Android Froyo. Then again, don't count on getting any carrier updates. And especially don't think of ICS, slim to no chance of that happening aside from custom roms.

    Bottom line: if you're on VM and you want a strong prepaid Android, I still can't really recommend this phone. With the price hike to $35/month, I can't even recommend Virgin Mobile anymore either, now that T-Mobile offers 4G for almost the same price. If you're on VM, buy/stay with the LG Optimus V and wait for the rumored LG Marquee when it comes out.
