The Motorola Triumph is a reasonably priced smartphone that sits around the higher range of the market without costing as much as some of the top end devices can and it’s just landed on Virgin Mobile on a variety of Virgin Mobile plans.
In terms of hardware the Motorola Triumph certainly pulls its own weight. The single-core 1GHz Scorpion processor might not be the fastest around but it should get the job done efficiently and quickly when paired with 512MB of RAM.
The 5MP camera is definitely appreciated, as is the LED flash and 720p video recording. There’s even a front-facing VGA camera for video calls.
The 4.1 inch 480 x 800 screen should provide crisp and clear images, as it’s in line with some current top-enders, and storage is expandable up to 32GB via a MicroSD slot.
Unfortunately internal storage is a mere 2GB, which could be a problem without an additional MicroSD card. We’re also a bit saddened to hear that the Triumph will come running Android 2.2 Froyo and not any form of Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Basically the Motorola Triumph is everything you got from a top-of-the-line smartphone one generation of devices ago, but for less than top-of-the-line price.
If you’re in the market for an Android that’s just under the premium devices out there then we suggest you give the Motorola Triumph a once-over when making your decision.
