Summary: I don't usually hate something, but I hated this phone. The touch screen was a joke. It was pressure sensitive, not capacitive, and most of the time, I had to tap the screen like 6 times just to open a text--don't get me started on actually trying to use it to text. Thankfully, the screen died on me, so I can finally be rid of it.
Summary: It's alright. I love some of the features on the phone but my biggest problem with it comes from texting with it. A) It likes to put squares after some words that I type using T9. B) It freezes every other day and I have to restart my phone mid-text. C) Sometimes it will shutdown all together while i'm writing a text. If it weren't for these annoyances, I'd be content with this phone. But for now I say Meh.
Summary: There were several things I liked about this phone. It has a large touchscreen; image changed from vertical to horizontal when you turned the phone; you could text using number keypad, qwerty keypad, or handwriting on the touchscreen with your fingertip; pictures were crisp; zooming in and out was easy; has mini usb for charging and connecting to computer; has mp3 player; takes mini SD for extra storage. Unfortunately there were things that I did NOT like about it.
Pros: Realistic color, large screen
Cons: Did not meet expectations, shut down on its own
Summary: I found the screen to be virtually impossible to see in the sunlight or in the car with sunglasses on. I also found the touch screen very slow to use for texting compared to an actual keyboard. Nice case color though.
Summary: I absolutely love this phone! BEST thing ever! But I hate to say there is one problem! No dialog/ conversation messaging. If this phone had thread text I would be in love with it. But since I am a teen and i text a lot, I have to delete my messages every day! I am also OCD about where things go and think it would be a wonderful idea to have thread messaging.
Pros: Durable, Realistic color, Lightweight
Cons: Did not meet expectations, no thread messaging
Summary: Cell phone goes to emergencey calls only too often! To make phone make calls again you must take out battery and put back in. You do not need to wait any length of time just in and out and restart phone and then you can make calls again. Also no speed dial.
Summary: i originally bought the solstice one but after a touch screen issue i was given an eternity 2. Honestly i love the phones features. I think its a great little phone, good clarity, easy to use. But it suffers from a major software glitch. Must not be with every one, because of all the good reviews. But i had one and after a week of use, it began freezing after texting. I took it back and got another one. Within a week, it started freezing as well.
Pros: Inexpensive, Realistic color, Lightweight
Cons: Did not meet expectations, software problems
