Good phone, excellent call quality, email & browing, but so so camera
6 February 2014
Summary: It was an excellent phone when it came out. It has excellent call quality, something that is extremely important in a phone but is often overlooked in reviews. The screen is made out of Gorilla glass. Basically, that means it's almost impossible to break other than intentionally. I saw Youtube videos with people trying to break the screens of phones with Gorilla glass. Usually, the people ended up wrecking something else on the phone before the Gorilla glass broke.
Not bad at all. Especially if you can get this phone on the cheap!

Summary: Switched back to Verizon from Boost mobile, so I had to replace the phone. Excellent phone considering this was Verizon's first 4G phone(so I was told). My two major concerns with this phone is the battery life and the camera. I find myself using camera apps to sharpen photos. The capacitive touch screen can be a little buggy at times. Overall, a good choice. I will probably upgrade to a new phone toward the end of the year.
Summary: I like the look and function of this phone. There are so many features that I couldn't possibly learn to use even a quarter of them. Great reception, internet connection is pretty fast, fairly user friendly for a beginner trying to get started; all making it a phone I'd recommend. I do worry sometimes about the strength of the E&M field so close to my head, though.
Great smartphone with great features and quality build! Excellent product!!

Summary: This smartphone is great! The Android operating system was a little tricky to get used to at first (seeing as I had just upgraded from an old Blackberry Curve 8530). But, once I got used to maneuvering around it, Android was great! I love all of the apps available at the Play Store, and the camera is really good too. Low light pictures aren't the best, but it's not exactly a full-featured digital camera that's built in either.
Summary: I bought this phone for my son because he wanted a touch screen phone that he could play games on. Excellent Phone, very good software on phone, 4G is very fast and available in most places on Verizon in the northeast, good battery life but not great. If you watch video or play games on it constantly, you will need to spring for an extended battery. Also, if you leave 4g on constantly, you will need an extended battery.
its really growing on me!...and i came from a galaxy nexus
shnibz, Phone Arena

Excerpt: Very nice under appreciated phone. I won this from PhoneArena (thanks guys) and decided to try it since my Galaxy Nexus is a little to big for comfort, and to flimsy for my job and although I miss the 720p screen and some ICS fea tures , i physically MUCH prefer the Bionic and its a really nice phone that has grown on me quickly... if it gets ICS soon i may never switch back to the Nexus.
Summary: Its a great phone. The battery could last a little longer. Its not as customizeable as my htc droid incredible 2 but still has custamization features. The phone itself is pretty fast great internet browser. Oh and very nice big screen.
Summary: in general I like the phone...what is bad to me is low battery life...the instruction book is not in a print for older ppl that use reading glasses....it would be nice to have a icon to go to pictures.....also in txt ...a icon to take a pic and send...is a percareious phone to use...will keep studying it and learn....the i phone is more user friendly.
