"Great phone for General android use, very affordable"
5 January 2012
Pros: Great sound quality. Large screen, Great for watching movies online. Picture quality is good. connects quickly to bluetooth accessories Wifi tethering for multiple devices Very stout phone, have dropped mine multiple times and still works great
Cons: Stock OS Sucks!!!It lags, and is full of metro bloatware. Flashed a new rom,(cyanogen Mod 7.2) Unbeliveably faster Battery Life is OK if your just using it to call, 4-5 hours of talk time 2 days downtime.Screen is very sensitive
Excerpt: Using media can quickly drain the battery. I think that the battery should be much stronger. I set my alar m at night with the battery ¾ full and when I wake up it, will be low and needing to be charged. It can be charged on the computer or through the charger adapter that cam e in the package. I think this is a good smartphone, considering no contract was involved. I think that people will enjoy it, but don’t expect too much from it.
Pros: Great Contacts Setup: I can put contacts in groups and add more info such as street address (guides me there) and web site (one-step link up). Battery life is also good. Bluetooth is good for driving safety too.
Cons: Sound quality is sometimes uneven. Many icons indicate lots of features I haven't yet figured out due to a skimpy users manual (a minor nitpick).
"Good starter Android for the price! Enjoying it...."

Pros: --Good price, $99 --Camera is good --You get quite a few free apps --Clear reception. --swype features
Cons: --Bad video; downloads very slow, and when it does, it's pixeled then it stops. --Not clear about the Wi-Fi, which is in and out. Thought wifi came with Metro. --Can't dump all the apps that are unwanted --Windows reduced from 9 to 6 after Android 2.2 up
Excerpt: to save text picture you must touch picture for about 5 seconds it will save it. to file manager or sd card. at time it wont ask where to save it . so you got to check to make sure it was save. over all the phone is a good deal the network that its on is not much to rave. the droid market you can get apps that you have to pay for on other app stores.
Excerpt: Ok phone Stock....Great phone customized.One of the best priced Android cellphones. Once you root it it gets even better. As your first smartphone or first android you may fall in love with it. Seems like some apps should be standard, but because the OS has so many free downloads you get over it.
