Not Worth It!

Meliza, Phone Scoop

  • Excerpt: I have had several cell phones over the years and have never had a screen crack/break not even from the inside where the glass is fine but the graphics get messed up. But that is exactly what happened when it was in a padded case.

  • Excerpt: I only gave this phone a 2.5 rating because of the features. Other than that, I have had the battery replaced 3x. Whenever I charge it completety, turn it off maybe one hour, then turn it back on, it's dead. I'm going to see if I can get the phone replaced before I totally give up on it.

It was good when it was out

  • Excerpt: I had been looking for a phone like 3 years ago, I settled on the Motorola K1m krazr, and yeah that phone was cool when I owned it. But I looked at this and it was cooler, i was just not sure of the touch panel. It seems to just be a touchier lg 8500 and an upgrade to that of course.

  • Excerpt: The picture and video features were easy to use, picture quality was great! I had the venus for a year, and in that time being I went through three different phones.. My problem with the venus was that after a few months with each brand new phone it would break in half.

Great for a beginner's touch-screen phone

1 November 2009
  • Excerpt: I got this phone brand new 2 years ago. I've never had any "screen peeling/flaking" as other reviewers have mentioned. I also only have to charge the phone 1-2x per week even though I leave it on 24/7.
  • Pros: Long battery life, Optional buttons or touchscreen, Great features/apps
  • Cons: Random rebooting, 2.5mm headphone jack, No camera flash

An awesome phone that's the 1st of it's kind

Sherri, Phone Arena
31 July 2009
  • Excerpt: This is by far my favorite phone that I have ever owned. My only complaints are that there's no flash and that the screen peels away in the corners. I just took my phone in to one of the stores and they give me a new one for free.
  • Pros: - lots of ringtones, - NEVER drops a call, - quick, responsive touch screen, - great camera
  • Cons: - screen gets dirt/dust under the edges, -screen peels over time, -no flash

  • Excerpt: **I KNOW PEOPLE DON'T LIKE READING LONG REVIEWS, BUT IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING BUYING THIS PHONE PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS.** Ok. I got this phone, thinking "oh, cool, I've got a touch screen phone, it works, and it looks pretty darn cool.
  • Pros: *Looks very cool - externally and in menus and that sort of thing., *Texting is surprisingly easily on the numerical keypad., *Touch screen reacts when buttons are tapped, making it easier to make the right selection., *More customizable than many phones., *Customizable shortcuts a plus.
  • Cons: *Camera was disappointing, with awful controls and terrible picture quality., *Quality: poorly built, fell apart in less than a year of ownership., *Touch screen not reliable, with delays., *Bad selection of ringtones, I found them all obnoxious and no good texting rings., *Very easy to press any...
