Battery life when using as an android makes it unusable
15 November 2013
Summary: ordered a new battery same thing. Searched on line for upgrading battery on this particular phone..pulled up match but when it took me to cricket site there was no battery upgrade. Just new phones. i only use 1 mg of internet time a month but pay as if i have unlimited access. Can't use as a hot spot as Cricket says phone won't do it... but is sold as 'android. Don't buy it.
Pros: It has held up well for the price however it is so worthless as if you use it as android battery lasts 4 hours tops. Have went thru two. Wanted to upgrade to longer life, cheaper than a new one but found Cricket to be no help.Can't contact via email.
Summary: I am on my second of these, not due to choice but due to the first one having problems and metro replacing it. First it is....... wait..... wait..... SLOW!!! So slow you will want to scream most of the time. Second every single time I try to type in a name for a text it adds commas and it's nearly impossible to get the name in there. I thought is was just my first glitchy phone but this one does it too! Third and probably the most annoying it stops synching all the time.
Summary: I've had this phone for about ten months now and I have to get a new phone already. The battery life if horrible from the start. I work ten hour days and I'm lucky if it last through the day. It shuts off due to over heating which doesn't make it a reliable alarm clock either. It's extremely slow due to having an outdated operating system. Save your money and get a better phone.
Summary: The battery on this phone dies so quickly. I charge it all day just to get 5 hours of battery life. The apps on the phone have a habit of getting stuck, so you have to restart, but they still may not work. The best features are the speakers which are very loud and clear, and the strong face glass. I gave this one to my daughter and bought an HTC.
Summary: I'm not sure if it is a one time fluke of a situation but... I bought this as a replacement phone for my girlfriend who had the LG Optimus that Cricket had in its line up. It was delivered promptly and looked brand new in its package. She seemed to be really happy with it at first but after 3 weeks she couldn't use her camera anymore. If she accessed certain apps the whole phone would shut down and restart.
