Has anyone used both the Motorola MPX220 and the Cingular (HTC Faraday) 2125? I currently have the MPX220 but the power button is breaking and I think they will replace it with the Cingular 2125. Despite a few startup problems with the 220 I now have it just how I want it and it works great for my needs - mostly Outlook/tasks/notes sync, meeting reminders, good phone, bluetooth and occasional Internet exploring (all in a small package). This was also my first flip phone which I now prefer but I can probably get used to going back to non flip.
If anyone has used both - how does the 2125 compare? Also do enough of the good apps come in Win Mobile 5 yet?
Thanks for any thoughts or advice.
I just got my 2125 after my MPx220 to a little bath in the washing machine. here are my first impressions.
The 2125 has better reception, the speaker volume is much better, especially the speakerphone.
The power connection (via usb) is much better than Motorola's crappy clip in connection, which has been tempramental on every motorola phone I've had.
The screen is much much better, higher res and brighter.
The status lights are nice, mpx220 has none.
The only downer is that there is no flash on the phone, but thats not a biggie.
