Summary: The Kin2 has some opportunities. Since it is no longer supported by Microsoft there are no apps and the conversation tracking for text messages is a little strange. Things built in to even the cheapest phones are missing, like a calculator and a calender.
Excerpt: i got this phone and it was really good for about the first week but then it started to have problems so i took it back to the store and they sent me a back up of the same phone and that one was ok for like 2 days and then the backlight just stoed working and i couldnt read anything
Pros: camera, battery, good text imput
Cons: build quality, reception, call quality, the backlight
Summary: I initially purchased the Kin Twom because I had to have a functioning device rather immediately. The Kin was a cheap alternative to paying retail for a NEW phone; unfortunately the phone has several kinks.
Excerpt: Do not get this phone, it is literally the worst phone i have ever had. the screen always froze and now the screen backlight went out so i cant see my screen at all. Now i have no phone because my mom wont pay for another and i am stuck with a phone with no screen.
Pros: Good battery life
Cons: freezes all the time, screen goes black and cant see anything
It has a unique benefit, but even on a budget there is a better way

Summary: I've had this phone for just over a year, and mostly really liked it, but only for it's main benefit: online access (wifi) without having to pay for a data plan. But before you believe that one single feature is worth the compromises you must make choosing this phone over others, consider the rest...
Excerpt: I had this phone for about a month and a half. Honestly, I have no idea how this is considered to be a "phone". There is no calendar, notepad, voice memo, or calculator tools. This phone lacks the basic apps that mostly all Verizon phones come with.
Pros: The Keyboard is nice, and the space-bar is very spacious., The camera takes decent pictures.
Excerpt: This phone is really cool if your into just social networking and don't want to make phone calls or surf the web or anything like that. You can easily post pictures to your facebook or whatever accounts. However its lacking in every other sense of what a smart phone is supposed to be able to do.
