Good keyboard, solid battery life but mediocre performance

I’d recommend the Admiral over any BlackBerry handset on the market, simply because it runs Android. But there’s nothing admirable about the Admiral; it’s just a good messaging phone with a good keyboard, though not necessarily a good phone phone. I wish it were more like the Dell Venue Pro, which may be gigantic, but it makes no sacrifices and has both a good screen and a good keyboard. Overall, the Admiral is nowhere near the top-end of Android phones, or even of Sprint smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S II or the Nexus S 4G, which have much better displays and much better performance. Sprint also seems to have a fetish for keyboarded smartphones, so the Admiral’s competition is steep there, too — the Samsung Replenish, Sprint Express, and even Motorola’s own XPRT and Titanium all look and operate just like the Admiral. The Admiral is a fine phone, but nothing about it stands out and makes it worth your money.

The Motorola Admiral is a middle-of-the-pack device in Sprint’s lineup, but it has its significant strengths. The keyboard is great, feel and build quality are very good and the Admiral is the first Direct Connect smartphone that you can actually use data with. Even if the DC service isn’t for you, this is the best portrait Android device that we’ve used thanks to the well thought out design and the Military Spec trimmings. Great call performance, battery life and operating smoothness make the Admiral a worthy phone to find both in boardrooms and construction sites alike.
