Motorola Triumph (Virgin Mobile) Video Hands On: Nice Big Screen, Runs Android Fast

We spent a little time with the newly announced Motorola Triumph for Virgin Mobile at its New York launch event. We have to say we liked what we saw. Sure, the Triumph isn’t the latest Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core super phone like the Motorola Photon 4G. Still, it sports a big 4.1-inch screen and looked nimble enough running its clean build of Android.

During our quick demonstration, we observed that the Triumph’s large 4.1-inch (800 x 400) LCD display looks bright, if not particularly hi-res. Equipped with a 1GHz CPU (probably a Snapdragon), the phone’s stock version of Android 2.2 Froyo seemed responsive. We also saw the device outputting 720p video to an HDTV and playback was smooth to our eyes. Not bad for an Android device on a pre-paid, no contract network. Still, it’s a 3G not 4G phone. Check out the videos below and see how the Triumph measures up.
