Motorola Triumph™Android Smartphone from Virgin Mobile


As new parents, you will be capturing your baby’s major milestones on film and in photographs, as well as those everyday moments that you will cherish, for many years to come. You will also need to keep track of well baby visits and play dates, as well as schedule regular video chats via skype to the proud grandparents if they aren’t living nearby. Watching YouTube Videos and browsing Facebook has now become part of our culture and being able to do so at the touch of a button allows you to connect with others. Listening to music can have a calming effect on both you and your baby. Having the internet at your fingertips is a big plus as well. Stuffing your Diaper Bag with all of these devices isn’t practical, not to mention the cost of owning several different devices. Enter the Smart Phone, one compact device that will allow you to complete all the tasks above and many more. The Smart Phone replaces multiple devices and once you own one, you will wonder how you ever lived without one! With a touch of a button, you can make and receive both regular and video calls, text message, capture both images and video, schedule appointments, check your email, google information and so much more with the 1000’s of cool apps.

Introducing the Motorola Triumph™, Virgin Mobile’s First Smartphone.

Motorola TRIUMPH allows users to rev up their smartphone experience with a superfast 1GHz processor, 4.1-inch touchscreen, 5MP camera and, front-facing VGA camera for video chat, 720p HD camcorder with HDMI output, to allow for playback on HDTVs (requires HDMI cable sold separately).

“The prepaid segment is a key opportunity in the wireless industry,” said Jeff Miller, corporate vice president, Motorola Mobility. “With Motorola TRIUMPH, we are excited to offer Virgin Mobile customers a device which provides a powerful Android smartphone experience with no compromises.”

Motorola TRIUMPH also is the first handset to come preloaded with the Virgin Mobile Live 2.0 social networking music application used to access the Virgin Mobile branded music stream, hosted by DJ Abbey Braden. The app also provides users of Android-powered devices free access to live music performance videos and “check in” features at special events. All status updates made using the app will also sync with Facebook and Twitter.

Motorola Triumph™


User Experience:

The first thing that you will notice when you unbox your Motorola Triumph™ is how sturdy and solid it is. Compared to other Android Smart Phones on the market, the Motorola Triumph™ clearly stands out for its rugged build. The Rubberized exterior is essentially a built-in “Soft Gel Skin” so you won’t have to spend extra money purchasing one. This results in a slimmer phone which will fit easily into a case or bag, with no bulky gel skins or guards to bulk up the phone. This exterior rubber enables the use to grip the phone easily with great stability. While other Android phones have a plastic rim which results in the phone slipping easily from your hand, the Motorola Triumph™‘s super design creates traction, preventing the phone from sliding easily from your hand.


The Motorola Triumph™ is ergonomically designed whether you are holding it vertically or horizontally. This is an important design feature because with a Smart Phone, you will be using your phone to access the internet, send emails, watch movies and of course make calls, so it is very important the phone is ergonomically designed so that you don’t cause strain to your hands. The Motorola Triumph™ has 2 virtual keyboards installed, to select from. You can also download additional keyboard apps so you are assured of finding the perfect one for you. The 4.1 inch touch-screen is a fabulous size and makes browsing the internet, typing and watching videos effortless. When you need to send a short email or look up some information online, you no longer have to start up your regular computer or laptop which is time consuming and not easily transportable. Simply grab your Motorola Triumph™ which starts up in seconds and you are ready to go.

Call quality is great on the Motorola Triumph™. For connecting with family and friends via skype, simply activate the Front Facing VGA Camera and you are good to go. This feature is not usually found on a phone in this price range! Take pictures like a pro with the  Motorola Triumph™‘ is a synch thanks to the fast shutter speed and image stabilization features which helps to prevent blurry pics. We feel that the Motorola Triumph™ was able to capture images very well outdoors in natural light as opposed to indoors. Video quality was good and uploading to YouTube or Facebook can be accomplished at the touch of the button. Overall, the Motorola Triumph™ is a solid pick in its price range and we commend Virgin Mobile on its newest edition.

The Beyond Talk Plan offers 3 different options, depending on your specific needs. It is by far the best prepaid phone option on the market today and now everyone can enjoy the full benefits of a Smart Phone while still staying on a budget.
