AT&T Quickfire Vs sidekick

Which is better the AT&T Quickfire or sidekick?If you want to buy the AT&T Quickfire,you must have the question.Then Let’s tell you.

In models,the  AT&T Quickfire is much like the Sidekick ,their screens are all in the middele.But the Quickfire uses side-sliding screen, rather than SideKick’s rotating design.And the Quickfire has fresh color,theflavor of fashion is strong and more suitable for young people.While the sidekick’s colour is heavier and more popular with mature people.AT&T Cell phones Reviews

    In functions,i think the sidekick is poor to AT&T Quickfire.But the sidekick is more expensive than the quickfire.(Quickfire only costs $100 with a 2-years contact.The sidekick is priced at $199.99 (with a two-year contract)The sidekick Weights 6.2 ounces and measures 4.5 by 2.6

    by 1.1 inches,while the Quickfire weights only 4.8oz and measures 4.3 by 2.2 by 0.7 inches.It is obvious the sidekicks is a bit bulky–it’s larger than Quickfire.Others,the sidekicks does’t offer speakerphone and memory-expansion slot,it only supports GSM 1900.While the quickfire is not only equiped speakerphone and memory-expansion slot,but it also offers 3G.Besides,the AT&T Quickfire has 262K colors display,but the sidekick’s display is 65K colors.

    Of course ,there are indeed many similarities between the AT&T Quickfire and T-mobile sidekick in functions.They all offers real-time e-mail and instant messaging,GPRS , Web browser, GSM 900 / GSM 1800 / GSM 1900 / GSM 850,integrated Bluetooth ,a 1.3-megapixel camera and so on.

    • i have had both the sidekick (id and slide) and the quickfire and no questions asked the quickfire is first choice. The touch screen is a bit laggy but it does nothing to bring down the excellence of this phone as a whole. 9.5/10

    • You can buy the card on ebuy or Amazon,and both of the two phone’s shells are similar,but the quickfire’s screen is much bigger than the sidekick.

    • sidekick slide beats quickfire hands down. i dont know what this quy is talking about “no expansion slot or speakerphone” um…. it has both… also, the sidekick has 262K colors. and, you even said it in your article, both phones support GSM 900 / GSM 1800 / GSM 1900 / GSM 850, not just GSM 1900.

      are you talking about an up-to-date sidekick? or are you talking about the original from like 6 years ago?

    • the quickfire is WAYY better the touch screen not only outscores the sidekick but it also has 3g which is sought in the sidekick and tmobile for that matter and you can operate the quickfire without opening it unlike the sidekick and he sidekick does NOT have 262 k colors because that is only in the touch screen pones so i dont know where Nick is getting his facts. switch to at&t and get the quickfire folks.. completely worth it i have it

    • I have the Quickfire, and it’s great. I freaking love it! The touchscreen is awesome and it has so many features that are really cool. My friend has the Sidekick and he hates it and thinks it’s a waste of the 200 bucks.

    • Quick fire is a great phone but is sorta dull but i like the side kick look.. I wish at & t would make another phone similar to it but better.

    • The Quickfire is the worst phone in history. I have the LG neon and it has a much better camera than the quickfire. THe quickfire touch screen is lagging and my brohter has it and even say that it is great but we all no that the touchscreen is lagging and the camera sucks! Don’t get me wrong the qucikfire has some really cool feature but you can get all that and more with the new phones they are making today like the samsung mythic! Over all if you get the quickfire you will be disappointed you might as well get the starter phone the LG neon!

    • You all need to get off of the hooch. Instead of debating about two shittastic phones, just go get an iPhone. The end. iPhone reins supreme!

    • I have the quickfire and its not all that bad. It just has the worst camera nd the touchscreen is kinda slow, but other than that its pretty kewl.
