Summary: I bought this phone because it was the cheapest smartphone out there. It looked nice and cnet gave it a good review. Despite the bad user reviews, I insisted on buying it. I am so upset now. Many people said that it only slows down if you buy apps and use the internet, not so. I did not use their internet browser ONCE! NEVER did I use any application that would use data. Why is it so slow? It is a cheap phone.
Summary: Worst phone EVER. My land line phone worked better when I was 15, and I'm 45 now, GET RID OF THIS FORKING PHONE IT IT THE WORST CELL PHONE EVER INVENTED AND I AM INSULTED THAT MY INSURANCE COMPANY REPLACED MY VORTEX WITH A PIECE OF CRAP LIKE THIS.
Pros: NONE. The green light when there is a message, but if you can get the message because this phone is so forking slow and unresponsive, good the fork luck
Cons: Minus any stars and no upvotes: This is the worse forking phone I have EVER HAD!
Cons: It is to small., The battery life is way too short. I mean it has a battery life shorter than the iPhone and you won't even use it that much because it sucks, but it will die anyways., It freezes all the time. , It randomly turns off.
Summary: I hated this phone because it was so slow I literally yelled at it! The reason I am getting a new one is because at one point I had to hold the phone at a certain angle to make it charge! And it "accidentally" fell in the toilet.
Summary: I hate this phone. Wish I would have never seen it before. Battery life is awful. Camera is awful. My phone freezes when I finish a call. I would not want anyone to have the trouble, that I have had with it.
Excerpt: I used this phone for about 2 and a half months between my Droid X and my RAZR. There is no comparison between the Citrus and any other smartphone out there, other than maybe the LG Vortex. It was barely capable of the most basic functions like web browsing and even text messaging. I do give it points for being rather sturdy. I dropped it a few times and it held up like a champ. Not meant for anyone that wants a real smartphone, more of a novelty than anything.
Summary: the features on the phone are excellent. it is the phone itself that has a MAJOR problem. it keeps freezing up. it shuts off at the wrong times. other than that it is good. i purchased this phone because of the low cost and the apps that i wanted to maintain my daily life. this product would be excellent if it weren't for the screen freezing up and the phone shutting off.
Excerpt: This is an overall bad phone to buy. The camera really suck. The phone is completely slow. It does not have flash for the camera. Web browsing speeds are really slow. If you are a fast typer, the phone will not keep up at all. The phone is a complete fail.
Cons: Call quality, Carmera, UI speed, Display, Text input
Summary: I would have loved to think that this product worked and I was very excited as it's my first smart phone, but it has one tiny problem: it doesn't make phone calls. I can get internet access so I can check Facebook and use my gasbuddy app, but when I need to make a simple call, it fails approx. 24 out of 25 times. I have a bit more luck with text messaging, but that's still hit or miss. Honestly, and I didn't want to believe this, but you do really pay for what you get.
