Excerpt: I wouldn't waste my money on this phone. I think it was released too soon because of all the problems I've read online. I've had 5 of these phones in less than 2 years. I want able to finish my 2 year contract because of the issues, I had to take my mom's upgrade to get a Galaxy s4. The common problems I've experienced with this phone were the battery never fully charging or saying is charging when the battery number goes down, no 4G at all, calls randomly being dropped,...
Pros: Front and back camera is nice to be able to skype. I love the keyboard and it is super quick. I would like to be able to get an extended battery, but so far the battery life has sufficed for me.
Cons: No removable battery. I have had the phone for 3 days,and right now i am staring at a frozen screen which i or verizon tech supp. can not fix. I have to wait to go back to store and get replaced. Needs a reset button to avoid this.
Pros: Swift - Dual Core and fast processor make a big difference. 4G LTE is a wonderful improvement--but a battery hog. Key Pad is well made and operates smoothly. Good screen, albeit no AMOLED. UI seems better than I am used to.
Cons: BATTERY IS NOT SUFFICIENT FOR INTENSIVE USE. After just a couple of hours, you can SEE the battery level declining. It will not last a full day for me. There is a little "play" between keyboard and screen. It is obnoxious.
