The motorola i1 is a serious phone if you're really clumsy
9 September 2012
Excerpt: First thing's first- the i1 is the only android smartphone for boost mobile right now. That's kind of important, especially because it costs thirty cents a day for unlimited data. If you play your cards right you'll never be paying for texts (google voice) within that. It's also pretty durable and if you drop it it'll probably forgive you.
Summary: Motorola is one cheap company. Most certainly NOT on the level of Apple's iPhone. This phone is made with substandard parts that break easy. Plus, Motorola tries to find any reason to refuse to repair the phone. For example, my phone broke while in my backpack. It was new. one week old. The little pressure on the phone from the stuff in my bag cracked something under the screen. You would never know it was broken. Everything on the outside looked new with no scratches.
Summary: I was really excited when it came. After a short use i quickly learned that the battery would not stay charged. Battery power fluctuated up and down quickly. Would Charge over nite and it would show 60% charged. After repeated attempts to maintain phone connected to web for data it never does. 5 calls to tech support only solution offered was a master reset. I did not buy it to have to reset it repeatedly to work right for short periods of time.
Summary: Well my phone broke, so I was forced to upgrade. I chose the i1 after spending 10 minutes with the in store display. This was my first touch screen phone. I returned it to the Sprint store after just 12 hours. It was so horrible, I can't believe this is sold. Here is the bad: Right out of the box, the phone is so slow with typing on the keyboard. This is without any apps downloaded. Sometimes the phone keeps up with you, but then in the middle of the sentence, it lags.
