Excerpt: I've had this phone for over two years. The first couple months was fine, but it all went down hill from there. The edges of the phone started to chip off and the hinge on the phone started to break. Also, the small screen and keyboard were very frustrating. I would recommend this phone as a first phone, but a first phone only. However, I did really enjoy the light up ring, Habitat mode, and the uniqueness of the phone.
Pros: The Habitat Mode is cool, although it would have been exponentially better if you were able to download more habitats. I like the color-coded light ring which made answering/avoiding calls & texts very easy. The keyboard is comfortable.
Cons: Operating system (for lack of a better term) is very slow and laggy. Touch-buttons are either too sensitive or not sensitive enough. The text input is not user-friendly. Keypad does not have the corresponding letters on it or anywhere on the phone.
Pros: Its different look gets a lot of compliments. When people would see my phone they would ask what it was. They thought it was a camera. A lot of people thought it looked cool.
Cons: Phone is fragile. The swivel action stoped working and the phone would never fully open. If talking on the phone I had to manually hold it up so my call would not disconnect. Phone would power down on its own all the time even w battery charged :(
Excerpt: ive had this phone for 6 months; since i have gotten this phone it has broke 7 times; i paid full price for the phone and the quality is awful; i advise going with a different phone. the charging port would always break; one time it totally froze up while i was puttin it on habitat; it never charges and the battery is awful
Cons: Slid open and then the whole thing came apart, after only 8 weeks. Verizon would not replace-states it is "not a known problem"....really! They would kindly let me buy another for $279.99 though. No thank you!
Excerpt: This is the worst phone i had for 4 hours and the phone snapped in half! I didnt drop it or anything. horrible design! STAY AWAY. The camera is lowsy if not mediocore. the music player is the standard verizon its so boring the best thing about this phone is the habitat mode which drains your battery fast so what i have been told. i like the interchangable faceplate. the keyboard is very awkward and annoying i dont like that you cant talk while its closed.
Pros: Cute little phone, daughter loved the easy texting. Faster than her previous Blackberry Storm.
Cons: 20 year old daughter texts a LOT, and all of the swivel action wore it out. It came apart and Verizon did not want to replace it, saying she must have dropped it. It is a bad design or needs to be a bit tougher.
