  • Summary: Deciption! Verizon does not offer hot spot on this phone. Reason I purchased it. Better off going to Verizon store, and getting phone with all features working. Phone came without battery. Clayton was a dick!

Ok for the price

Amy Ren, Amazon
16 August 2013
  • Summary: It's ok for what it is which is one of the cheaper smartphones that you can get with no contract. I got this when I lost my phone and didn't have an upgrade available. It seems to struggle technically when trying to run some apps (turn by turn directions just did not work for example) and frequently run low on storage space because many apps can't be moved to the SD card, but it gets the basics like phone, text and email done if you need it.

"Not Worth It, Every Pro Has 2 Cons"

  • Pros: Easy to use, nice size, looks nice. Screen graphics are excellent. SD card for extra memory. Picture quality is good. USB cord to connect to comp for easy transfer. Call quality good from both ends. Charge port on bottom.
  • Cons: Poor battery life-to be expected tho. Too many apps installed I never used; Navigation, Call ID, Skype, Songster, Kindle , Amazon, can't even name them all. Charging glitches. Burned out charging cables. Slide to talk glitchy. Keypad entry lag.

It's an "Average" Phone

Saeed Rezaei, Amazon
13 December 2011
  • Summary: I've had this phone for about a year now. I got it for free with a 2 year contract with Verizon. I guess I can't say much about a free Android phone, but still, this phone has its faults. First off, the phone has a pretty good design. It's not too flashy, but still has a nice and slim design. I like the fact it has physical navigation buttons rather than the touch navigation buttons, that are on most other Android Phones. The sound quality is also good.

  • Pros: It's cheap, makes phone calls and texts.
  • Cons: Browsing is very slow, the phone can't play games very well at all and the video recording is very poor. The phone also hangs a lot when trying to perform certain tasks.

15 October 2011
  • Pros: easy to read screens, good color
  • Cons: Hate the keyboard. I had my phone a few weeks, hated the keyboard and suddenly, there was a new keyboard much like my son's iPhone - loved my phone for the next few months then suddenly - it reverted back to the one with tiny keys even for small hands, P

Eh okay phone

Rachel0117, Phone Arena

  • Excerpt: Overall it was okay but has freezing glitches. It turns to a verizon screen when it glitches for me and i have to pull out the battery and put it back in to get it to work. I cant take pictures anymore on my vortex because it says my "SD Card is damaged" when i dont even have one.. and you dont need one to take pictures! My whole picture memory was erased one day because of thiss. But besides these glitches the vortex has a easy to understand setup and design.
  • Pros: camera quality, nice setup, easy to understand setup&design, nice build ( not huge but not too small), good apps
  • Cons: have to turn the camera to take a pic of yourself, glitches and freezes on verizon screen, keyboard too slow, battery time
