Question
Which phone is better the elite or the triumph?

answer 1
I have the Optimus Elite and my son has the Triumph. His seemed to be pretty good UNTIL I got my Optimus Elite.
Mine is faster surfing WITHOUT using the WiFi. He has to use the WiFi to get it to go faster and even with using the WiFi on the Triumph, games get stuck or take forever to load.
The only good thing about the Triuimph is the large screen. There is no black strip on the top or bottom. The entire phone face is the screen.
Optimus Elite - takes clear pictures. Fast page loading and surfing even without using WiFi. No freeze ups on video watching or games.
Triumph - clear pictures. Slow web page loading. Freezes up on video or games.

Question
How is Skype voice quality on this phone?
I have an older Android (HTC Hero on Sprint) and Skype does not work at all. The GUI works, calls are placed, but voice is completely garbled. I wonder if it works any better on this phone.

To the best of my knowledge, you cannot Skype on this phone as it does not a front facing camera. I have owned for over 6 months. Hope this helps.
