Too many issues to be a great phone

Terry Moore, Amazon
8 July 2014
  • Summary: Barely okay phone. Battery life is not great(<2 days in light use), and I am having trouble with the phone locking up when switching to Wi-Fi mode. Speaker not great for music and the volume buttons are too easily pressed by mistake(I think because of where the volume buttons are located in relation to the power button - I think the power button would be better on top instead of the right side).

  • Summary: very angry at Best Buy for not allowing me to return this after virgin put me thru the wringer testing if the problem was phone or signal related. Cust. service was abysmal at both virgin and best Buy, and after paying full price of 60 dollars went home to find it at 29.99 on Virgin Mobile site. The phone I liked, the size, clarity of picture, but accessing the phone through all the safety devices and getting to the keypad was something else.
  • Pros: size, availablity of gee whiz features camera did well
  • Cons: TIED TO SPRINT, whichmay be ok in the city but step two feet out and the talk voice quality terrible.

I wouldn't buy again.

WMgrad, CNET
26 December 2013
  • Summary: You get what you pay for with this phone. It's fine for talking, texting, Google Hangouts, and basic websurfing. Google Play also functions pretty well, with a few glitches. Battery life is incredible; with light use, the phone will last for two days on one charge.
  • Pros: Price., Very long battery life., It's a smartphone for $60.
  • Cons: Unreliable; died after 8 months, Processor can't handle Google Maps well, Camera is worse than on my first-gen HTC Droid Eris. No, really. I don't even bother taking pictures with it.

It Does Not Behave Like a Decent Phone Should

R. Talmo "Rich", Amazon
17 June 2013
  • Summary: I got this as a $40 deal of the day on Amazon but when it was delivered the device didn't act like a modern phone should. The phone wouldn't operate some basic applications that an Ice Cream Sandwich phone with its specs should. Many apps just got stuck or wouldn't even open. I also had an issue with getting on WiFi after the second day of ownership. I know it was a $40 deal but the device should perform some of the basics, even if at a slower rate.

  • Excerpt: I use this product to communicate with my parents from school. It's great to text quickly, use Pandora, and make quick calls, but the calls break up, and the signal is weak. The keyboard is hard to use, as well. Apps either crash or don't load, and this phone freezes literally ALL THE TIME. I'm in the middle of texting my mom and it freezes. It freezes so much, it gets annoying.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Good For Texting, Lightweight
  • Cons: Apps Crash, Awkward Keypad, Drops Calls, FREEZES ALL THE TIME, Freezes Up, Hard To Play Games, Poor Battery Life, Weak Signal
