Great value for the price! Kept my unlimited internet plan.

Summary: Purchased this product to replace my aging Droid Charge. Needed to purchase at "retail" to keep my unlimited internet plan. This phone has great developer support and I was able to "root" the phone using an available toolkit and then replace the OS with the latest version, Jelly Bean! Phone runs "smooth as butter" and has great battery life!
Excerpt: I've had this phone since January and its by far the best phone I have had. Great screen, blazing fast and easy to use. Stock android is so much better than the skins the other phones have. Glad I bought it. Every software update makes it better and better. Love google now and the new voice search. So much more accurate than siri and faster. Overall now that this phone is free at best buy mobile you really can't beat it. I paid 300 for it when it first came out.
Pros: Super AMOLED Screen, Stock android, Rooting possibilities are endless, Easy to use.
Summary: I very much like the phone and can strongly recommend it, but if it were a single thickness instead of having a chin, it could hold a much more significant battery. Louder when playing media would also be nice. The ability to expand storage would also be nice, but as long as I don't try to use it for watching movies, it should be adequate.
Pros: Jelly Bean features, lack of carrier alterations. Android as it was meant to be.
Cons: Battery life is only one day, speaker needs to be louder when playing media, no SD slot.
Summary: Despite being a year old, this phone still races through anything I can throw at it. I flashed CM10 and it's running amazingly. A good choice if you don't have a 2 year upgrade. The only phone I would choose over this one would be the Galaxy S III.
Summary: At first, I thought I overpaid for this phone ($285 used) however I wasn't disappointed once I realized exactly what I had purchased. The new Ice Cream OS is very fast and the functionality is much better than previous droids I've owned. The camera is a little less than desirable quality but the no shutter delay more than makes up for it. I like the front facing camera feature, very useful for people that like to Skype.
Powerful, simple and user-friendly. Perfect for deveopers.

Summary: I am an Android Applications Developer and needed a device with the most standard Android OS version. I like it for its very good performance and ease of use (not cluttered with a lot of useless widgets by default). It's a worthy member of the Galaxy family.
Summary: I first got introduced to android by the HTC G1/Dream, a few months after it was launched; I loved it. Last OS I remember using on it was FroYo (CyanogenMod). I replaced that phone for a Motorola Droid X, then I replaced the X for an HTC Sensation. I've always enjoyed rooting and romming the s**t out of my devices; and I was thinking about 3 devices when I got this one: HTC ONE X: The Good: Quad core 1.5Ghz (the european version..
