“Full HTML” Web browser is mildly disappointing; Touchscreen can take a bit of getting used to; No VCAST TV support

Dare is the best multimedia phone and Verizon currently offers the best camera ever has offered. It may well be the best camera available U.S. of any airline at this time, too. Although the touch screen is smaller than those of its competitors (iPhone, Instinct, and Vu come to mind), is bright, clear and relatively sensitive. If you do not need or QWERTY VCAST TV, Dare is the best feature phone VZW, and possibly the best of the media-rich handset currently available in the U.S. an airline.
