Cons: CANNOT FIND CASES FOR THE PHONE. IT FREEZES ALL THE TIME. I EVENTUALLY HAD TO HAVE IT COMPLETELY RESET TO FACTORY SPECS BECAUSE IT WOULD NOT EVEN LOAD THE HOME SCREENS. I COULD NOT USE MY PHONE AT ALL.
Summary: I had a Droid Eris before this phone and I have been very disappointed with the Merge. It constantly crashes whenever exiting out of a game or app and has this weird issue where in the texting screen it will randomly scroll upwards for no reason. The grey on the back of the case rubbed off in spots where I guess it kept getting worn from being in my pants pockets. I've talked to other Merge users and they have the same problems.
Pros: Good graphics and storage off the shelf, touch screen is very responsive and resists scratches easily. Body is well constructed and durable as well as comfortable in the hand.
Cons: Original phone had reception and call issues and froze. The body is slippery and can easily fall from your hands. Software issue with sound setting when going from silent to normal. Battery life is very short and slider is not easy to open.
