Summary: I have had this phone before and the product just isn't the same as what I was expecting. The battery on the phone I had before would last me 2 days as I was using it. On this product the battery barely lasts 8 hours on standby.
Summary: It works somewhat like the original Verizon cell phone I purchased but it has a major flaw in its software. I'm in the process of returning it to the third party vender for a full refund as I type. Buying any electronic item like this is a gamble.
Summary: The eQuick company was great to work with and they did everything they could to satisfy me but, I received my phone very promptly and had it activated but it had a bad speaker. They immediately sent me another phone that worked fine at first but it froze up on the second day which is very rare. I requested a refund and an RA which they did without question. Sorry that the phones I received were bad but the company was great.
Summary: While some things, like the battery life, are excellent (I can get 2 straight days without charging with low to middle use), other things just suck. Playing music causes the phone to FREAK OUT, where I have to constantly clean the RAM using an app I installed. Whnever you download an app, the phone is unresponsive and slow for about 2 minutes afterwards and during the installation.
Pros: The battery life was great, the screen was rather large, and the notification lights are always easy to see
Summary: I was only looking for a phone to make it through the next year of my contract after I broke my Galaxy S3. I ordered this phone new and it certainly did not come new. When I turned on the phone it did not automatically bring me to the easy set up. Furthermore, there was already a video loaded onto the phone. I did a factory restore and after that it was easy to set up. As far as the system goes, it is a bit slow for me.
A decent pick, but unreliable data usage services.

Summary: This is my first smartphone. I don't utilize the technology to it's fullest potential, nor do I have a million apps that use a lot of data.
Pros: - Large screen with good resolution, - 5 customizable "home" screens a swipe away, - Apparent battery longevity, - Video recorder with decent screen resolution upon play-back., - Call quality, - Sturdy in build
Cons: BIGGEST con (-1.5 stars): Unreliable connection to the internet/4G,& apps that require it. Even if I'm in an area of full coverage, apps/navigation freezes,& the internet availability acts like dial-up. Don't even try it in airports!, - Camera qual
Excerpt: Got this phone as a replacement for my last Motorola clunker, and it is only a slight improvement. First, as with all things Verizon, it is LOADED with bloatware. When I cut it on in the AM, sometimes it takes as long as 5 min to get my emails up because it is busy downloading updates for apps I neither asked for nor need. The processor is painfully slow.
