Excerpt: ive had the venus for a year now and have been let down by its slow unconsistant performance. the paint has chipped, the charger doesnt fit well, the touch display works only half the time, and the zoom stopped working on the camera.
Summary: This phone has MANY gliches and will flip the screen upside down and not allow you to do anything! I had 5 (YES 5!) different phones of this model, because the software continued to go bad on every one! One of them turned off randomly and would not turn back on for a half hour! Do NOT buy this phone what-so-ever! You will regret it. Believe me, I wish I could go back on this purchase. I repeat. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE!
Cons: This phone has the worst reception of any phone that I have ever owned or used! I have been places where I couldn't even et a signal but people all around me are talking on their phones. I am throwing it away.
Excerpt: This is by far the worst phone verizon has ever come out with. Its extremely slow even with the upgrade. It takes forever to send and receive text messages. The sides chip like its nothing, the whole sliding top portion comes loose and eventually falls off, the buttons are SO slow and takes a year to navigate anywhere, its not sturdy at all, the battery life sucks, I've come close to throwing it out my window and I've had to replace it FOUR, yes four times.
Excerpt: This phone is the biggest piece of crap I have ever spent money on! 1. The sides chip off and it now looks terrible and the screen is scratched beyond belief. 2. Now for the second time my phone will not call anyone or text anyone yet I have perfect service. It says CALL FAILED!!! TRY AGAIN. I have tried taking the battery out and turning it off and it does not work. This should not happen with a phone!
