Not Worth It!

Meliza, Phone Scoop
23 May 2012
  • 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. It was not dropped/bumped or anything just in my pocket for about 20 minutes and it was damaged. I only had the phone for about 2 months.

The battery life of the phone has reached its max.

  • Summary: The battery of the phone didn't last long even after charging for hours and hours. Now the battery won't charge at all! I would have the phone hooked to the charger and try to turn on the phone. But after only being on for a second, the phone turns itself off again~!

  • Excerpt: I got this phone for Christmas over a year ago and I don't like it.  It started out great but it kept getting slower and slower.  It's not like i was using all the memory or anything because I didn't even load songs onto it.  The "touch screen" is better than buttons for me but its slow and most of the time you have to push it more than once.  I have recently had trouble with calls too.  One day it just stopped working at all and the next day it was fine.

I HATE the Venus

Emily, Phone Arena
20 December 2008
  • Excerpt: I really really dislike the Venus phone. I have had it about 5 months and it is already scrathched terribly and the paint on the number keys is already wearing off so I can't see the numbers. The touch screen is SLOW and freezes up. You usually have to press the screen two or three times before it goes to the menu. I love to text but, as a few other reveiws mentioned, it freezes up when you try to text.
  • Pros: Good Design, Small
  • Cons: The touch screen is not sensitive enough, Freezes up when texting, Paint on keys wears off, screen scratches easily

DONT BUY, NOT WORTH IT

Joe Shmoe, Phone Arena
18 June 2008
  • Excerpt: I bought this phone when it first came out expecting it to actually be worth the original $200 price tag. I wouldnt pay $50 for this phone today. The screen scratches way too easily, you cant see the screen in the daylight at all, the slide out is scratching the numbers off of the keypad, 1 out of every 10 texts that I send fail to do so, and the touch screen is not working properly.
