Motorola Triumph, Virgin’s new flagship device looks forward to offer clean Android experience to users. The phone with a 1GHz processor and a large 4.1 inch screen along with an HDMI output has all the necessary requisites to make it large in the smartphone segment. The phone is available without contract and if you are an Android lover looking forward for some cost effective Android experience, then Triumph can very well be the handset for you. Check out our exclusive Motorola Triumph review to know what the phone has to offer you.
Motorola Triumph Looks And Design
When you first look at Triumph, you may very well mistake the phone for Motorola Droid. It sports same blocky shape but it slightly softened by its rounded corners. The phone is quite bulky weighing 144 grams and is carved out of soft plastic. The device feels well balanced in hands and we were impressed by the build quality of the device. It feels quite durable and the chrome finish on the power and volume buttons of the device makes it look elegant. Motorola is known for launching durable handsets, and Triumph is no exception.
Motorola Triumph Display
Triumph features a 4.1 inch display which displays pictures of resolution measuring 800×480 pixels. The screen resolution is a bit lower than Motorola Photon 4G which displays pictures of resolution measuring 960×540 pixels. The screen is fairly bright and the images displayed are crisp and sharp. However, sometimes we felt that the colors are a bit washed out. The screen responded brilliantly to our touches. Viewing angles are average and the colors got washed out when we titled the screen. The screen failed to impress us, in terms of sunlight legibility and one needs to turn the screen to maximum level to read the texts clearly in direct sunlight.
Below the screen, you get the usual touch button along with two small speakers. The headphone jack is at the top while the microUSB and mini HDMI port are at the bottom of the phone. One feature of Triumph which impressed us is that one can remove the microSD card without the need to take out the battery.
Motorola Triumph Features
Let us first talk about the software of the phone. Triumph runs on Android 2.2 (Froyo) OS and is powered by 1GHz Scorpion processor. This turned out to be a bit disappointing as we were expecting the phone to be equipped with Android 2.3(Gingerbread) OS. The internal memory of Triumph offers 2GB of storage which can be increased to 32GB. The phone is integrated with several in-built applications such as
- Google Search
- Google Talk
- Flash Lite
- Photo viewer/editor
- My Space Integration
With Android market round the corner, users do not have to worry about apps. You can download your favorite applications from the Android market.
Motorola Triumph Keyboard
The phone offers a virtual QWERTY keypad. Typing the keyboard was quick and the light haptic feedback and the large keys impressed us. There is also an alternate keyboard called Touchpal and features such as www./.com shortcut to enter name of website really impressed us.
Motorola Triumph Camera Quality
Motorola Triumph Android is equipped with a 5MP camera which clicks photographs of resolution measuring 2592×1944 pixels. The camera has advanced features such as auto-focus, geo-tagging etc. The images captured are sharp and gives nice amount of details. With flash, one can easily click pictures in dark. However, there is an issue with the camera. It takes 2-3 seconds to fire, which really annoyed us. If you want to carry out video calls, then there is a secondary VGA camera.
Motorola Triumph Video Performance
The phone is capable of capturing 720p videos @ 30fps. Videos played were smooth though sometimes, the images got blurry.
Motorola Triumph Connectivity
Connectivity is one major issue with Triumph. Though there is support for 2G as well as 3G, there is no support for GPRS and EDGE. Local connectivity in the phone is consolidated by the presence of 2.1 with support for A2DP and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. Through Motorola Triumph HDMI port, one can stream the contents of the phone through a television having HDMI port. There is also a microUSB cable and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Motorola Triumph Multimedia
In the music option, one gets the stock Android music application. The music playbook looks good and it also makes usage of Google music service. The video playback of the phone is also good and with the help of Youtube application, one can easily enjoy Youtube videos on the phone.
Motorola Triumph Accessories
Motorola Triumph comes with the following accessories
- 2GB Micro SD card

Motorola Triumph Battery Life
During our battery test, we found the battery of the phone to last only for a little over 3 hours 45 minutes which fell below our expectations.
Motorola Triumph Call Quality
Call quality was very good with Triumph and while making calls, our callers said that they were able to hear our voice very loud and clear. With the speaker phone on, our voice was loud enough to fill in a small room.
Motorola Triumph Price
Motorola Triumph price in the USA, (without contract) is $ 299 respectively. Motorola Triumph price in India is not yet known.
Triumph is a great device for CDMA phone lovers. Though it suffers from connectivity issues and battery life, yet you can safely bet your money on this product.
