Summary: I gave this a 3 because I did have a problem when I first received the phone. I called them right and they responded quickly, and mailed out one immediately. And received it in two days, cell phone itself was in excellent condition as posed it to price was excellent I feel that they should pay a little more attention to details of a phone before shipping it out
Summary: I had an LG before. We changed cell phone carriers and I got a very basic phone and discovered I hated it. The carrier would not work with me on getting it changed without either paying full price or waiting until contract came up in another 18 months. So I took matters into my own hands and went to amazon to purchase this one. The only problem I have had with it, is that it has to be charged every night even it I have not used it!
Excerpt: the phone has some issues with the camera (focus) and memory for running services, as well as issues with text input and prediction accuracy. Works OK for everyday use at home or on the job. Good reception and call quality most of the time. Very good WiFi antennae! I can pick up and use my home WiFi half a block away if i have the dog out or visiting a neighbor.
Pros: durable, battery lasts about one to one and half days when fully charged
Cons: little memory, pre-installed un removable rip offs of market apps that are free with less functionality than the the free app from the market clog up memory required for contacts, text messages, and apps
Summary: In general this is a great phone for the price. My only complaints are: 1) The keyboard isn't quite as easy to use as I expected, although the Swype technology helps 2) As you're typing a text message, you can only see 2 lines of your message at a time, so you have to scroll up and down to proof-read, which is a little annoying 3) The battery life seems pretty short - occasionally less than a day with normal usage.
"durable easy to use all it's missing is Camera Flash"
24 February 2012
Pros: Low cost, Durable, Easy to use, compatible with many interfaces and Bluetooth devices, all around great phone of the AVERAGE NON BUSINESS person.
Cons: Not the best camera, NO FLASH, screen seems a little small but in order to get a bigger screen you would have to enlarge the size of the phone as well?!? Not a huge deal to me as I like the size of the phone
Cons: the phone works ok, but sometimes when pulled away the screen wont light up again, seems as if it always is dying, shuts off sometimes. Thought that fam member that uses it may have gotten an issue phone, but it has happened to like 300 people that review
Excerpt: Its OK the battery is the WORST it freezes it glitches at times but its an OK phone this was my first smart phone but the camera is good but when u type u type faster than it writes I would suggest getting a hard case for it oh and my phone cord broke within 2 months or so
