"bad reception, bad camera. loaded with google crap"
1 October 2013
Pros: built well. good battery
Cons: gets terrible data reception. Google products shoved down your throat. Camera is terrible. non removable battery. After a phone exchange the battery now stinks so its either deal with it or send phone back AGAIN. No plain internet browser just google
Excerpt: Great phone. Built really well. Excellent signal reception. Really good build quality. Thin and light. Splash resistant. Camera is okay quality, as with the screen and battery life. OS was really buggy and slow but Jelly Bean update is way better. Internal storage is a chore. Uses single partition to store apps and data like Nexus devices but is only about 2.5GB and no way to move apps so internal memory is full after only downloading two games and nothing else.
Excerpt: Bought this phone because of its great reception reputation. Couldnt even get 3g where I live and only got one bar with many dropped calls and dropped internet. Took it back for replacement phone just recently and cant get 4g with that phone either. Battery life if excellent. Camera is so so.
Excerpt: This phone is tough and reliable. It is not the most fashionable and when my employer handed these out to the team as work phones I wasn't disappointed as I have a Nexus, but definitely not thrilled either. As time has gone by. This phone has served well. Granted US Cellular's service is abysmal, but everything else about this phone is quite snappy. Photos look rough but gaming is fun on the bigger screen.
Excerpt: It's an all around awesome phone. Not to big or bulky, weight is great. Touch screen is way better than the last smart phone I had being a Samsung windows phone. The Android market is crazy great with options unlike the limited windows market. The price was well worth it for what I payed at Us Cellular, under a hundred bucks! Loving the photo quality, battery life is wonderful specially since I use it as a music player when I'm at work!
Excerpt: My mom bought this phone from US Cellular a couple of days ago. I've been playing with it every chance I have. I use the Samsung Galaxy S III and I admit this phone is amazing. The screen is perfect size and it feels amazing in your hands thanks to the small bezel. The battery is great, its very smooth, and simple to use. Definitely a buy.
