Best Brew Phone?

Forums:

Hi,

I've spent the last 2 weeks working on a Brew app. It's up and running on a fairly new Samsung NCH-330 phone. But, it's pretty slow! I realize that the application obviously plays a large part in this but we've got similar applications running on J2ME and Symbian platforms which are much faster..

So, I'm hoping to get a better device and I was hoping someone with some Brew experience could point me to something better..

Also, are any of the Brew devices ahead of the rest in terms of popularity?

thanks,
joe

Do you want "most popular" or "fastest". Also, which carrier are you targetting?

Also note that Symbian phones are usually faster than average brew phones.. :)
And obviously, it highly depends on how the app has been tweaked/fine tuned to a particular platform..

Audiovox CDM8940 so far is my favorite.
Fast, relatively bug-free :) Has some address book issues (IADDRBOOK interface), has a "BCI BREW 2.1.3.3+ problem", but still is my favorite.
LG VX7000/VX8000 are not bad.

Yeah just take a look at Verizon's VCAST lineup... they all share simular characteristics (~6M heap + decent comparable speeds). All run EVDO network, have simular screen size, and can handle 3D apps (although no 3D hardware support).
LG8000, Samsung A890, A950, A970, Audiovox CDM8940, CDM8945, and Motorola E815.
Out of these I would say that the E815 has the best performance and loading times although there are issues with the keys. The 8940 I would say is actually the low end phone out of these.
