Summary: I do like certain features about this phone. But I prefer photon q which has the ice-cream sandwich OS, an unlockable bootloader provided by Motorola site, a media share feature in setting, and lastly I like the keyboard. This photon 4g is a decent phone as well. If you don't mind the older gingerbread software and looking for a good sturdy phone.
Summary: I love the keyboard. That is the only reason I bought it. My fingers are not good with touch screens. The phone is a little outdated compared to the droid 4 on Verizon but the price is better. Sprint should really have more options for phones with slider or physical keyboards.
Summary: Ok i tested the phone and every thing was ok ,now i came to test the ear phone only one channel is working , every thing else is running smoothly ,today 5/19/2014 the device was fully charched and it suddenly went black ,I tried to restart it no way ,maybe it is battery problem still dont know , I will check but for most of the other things like call ,video, wifi ,camera, bluetooth , every thing is great i tested all features my self ,every thing is running good .
Excerpt: Already replaced the unit once - about ready to again. So disappointed with the performance of the Photon. Hard reset needed at least once a day, soft up to 3 times daily. Apps fail or lock often. Sad.
Summary: Would not purchase again. This Droid is just that, a droid that doesn't work half the time. Have had phone replaced twice within months of each other. Have spent at least 5 to 6 hours at the Sprint store and then not having a phone for 1 or 2 days each time. New phone, not 3 months old, replaced with rebuilt and now it is the same thing again. Absolutely not the phone for reliability!
Pros: Great sound quality, picture and camera. Easy to use.
Cons: Issues, issues, issues. Emails wouldn't connect, phone wouldn't pick up calls, wouldn't ring, wouldn't receive calls, unable to hear anything without an earpiece, ringtone drops to a low sound even on high.
Summary: I have only had this phone for about 4 months. This phone spends most of its time being VERY gently used, & carried in a shirt pocket or in my hand, I found that the glass does scratch & I found the "Gorilla Glass" with a slight crack.
Pros: Love the phone; speed & ease of use;don't mind size & weight, tho'it might be an issue for some. Camera is great for our needs. Quick photos,on the run,to document what was seen.(visual notes), Replaced an HTC Hero I had for 2 years with NO issues
Cons: Gorilla Glass does not seem to all it is 'Cracked' up to be.
Cons: Problem with dropped calls volume issues when people call or leave messages static and poor connection sounds like I am talking in a tunnel of howmost of the time...really bummed I had great expectations
