Not all I expected

Amy V., Amazon
6 March 2014
  • Summary: The phone works. The phone has glitches, like the home key doesn't always work and is unresponsive. There are times when you're trying to make a call and the phone doesn't respond.

Better for someone who doesn't use apps much

CBB, Amazon

  • Summary: I wish I hadn't purchased this phone under contract because I'm stuck with it for another few months. This phone would be perfect for someone like my m-i-l who doesn't use 3/4 of what is on her android phone pre-installed and never uses the market or app store at all.

To the point: Probably won't get it again

Vance, Amazon

  • Summary: I originally went with the Ally because it didn't want something to launch NASA rockets but didn't want a horribly slow smartphone either. Well, this is certainly mediocre. It started off well enough but as the months went by, it just seems like it get more finicky.

Keep looking

  • Summary: I received this phone free through a promotion with Verizon. Have had it a year and the battery after about 3 months started crapping out. 1 year into use the battery needs to be replaced. Love the android platform and the pull out button keyboard, otherwise, eh.

Average Phone

riverboy949, Phone Arena
23 November 2011
  • Excerpt: It was a great phone. I loved how fast it was until what i call doomsday. The day the 2.2 update came out. After that day the phone went downhill...FAST. It froze at least once a day and the slider would not work so I had o use the small onscreen keyboard.
  • Pros: ...
  • Cons: 2.2 update ruined it

Avoid this phone like the plague

Kanati, Phone Arena
5 November 2011
  • Excerpt: This phone is very average. For its overall size its really heavy and feels like a brick in my pocket. I've dropped it a couple times and its held up ok. I've gone through like 3 of them due to problems with text messages, and the vibrate function going out.
  • Pros: Full keyboard
  • Cons: almost everything else

  • Summary: This phone worked great to start with. It is my 1st smartphone and touchscreen. Battery life is decent if you are in an area of great service otherwise I end up plugging in twice a day.

Freezes up

Space Salamander, Amazon
12 October 2011
  • Summary: After about 6 months, my phone began freezing up, especially when the battery was low. I couldn't turn it off, couldn't reset it, until-- for whatever reason-- it decided to unfreeze itself (usually after several hours). Finally it just froze up permanently.

Ambition didn't pay off

Robert Callsonis, Phone Arena
25 May 2011
  • Excerpt: I'm going to cut to the chase. This phone sucks. I know apparently it runs the newest version of android, and it has a keyboard, and was advertised in Iron Man 2, but seriously, this phone sucks. The keyboard is the klunkiest thing ever. It was very hard to use. The camera is basically useless.
  • Pros: It runs android? Kind of.
  • Cons: If hell was a phone, it would be the LG Ally.
