My Prevail Experience

Excerpt: Got the Prevail when it first came out. I actually pre-ordered the phone from Best Buy Mobile. This is the 3rd Prevail. The first one got damaged in water. The second was DOA (calls would cut out). The 3rd was the charm. I have read the reviews here and had to write this. I have not experienced many problems with the phone and the ones I did, the solution was a very easy fix. (1) Batter Life .. download a battery preserver app. I do agree the battery life sucks.
Summary: i bought my phone from promocell and it was in mint condition even though it was refurbished. I will becomparing a lot to the iPhone and iPod touch feel 1) the phone feels solid and is pretty lightweight. The touch screen is pretty responsive as it should be, only problem is that it takes a lot of practice and keyboard adjustment in settings to make it efficient. Camera on the phone is pretty bad and no flash, I believe only 2mp.
Summary: i was very excited to get my phone. it has many apps enabled. i wish the screen were a little bigger. it takes very good pics. the particular battery in this phone does seem to drain power fast, unsure if it's because of internet and music downloads.
Excerpt: I was very excited when I bought this phone. I had spent nearly a month researching the "smartphones" before making my purchase and felt very confident that I had made an excellent decision. Unfortunately, after purchasing the phone and having it only a week, I tried to download the Adobe Flash app from the market and it tells me that the phone is not compatible! I was shocked because in doing research it says that you need The Android 2.2, which is what the phone has.
Pros: WiFi, Great visual quality, Awesome sound, Camcorder
Cons: Not compatible with Adobe Flash Player, Battery life, Freezes up a lot, No camera flash, Scroll doesn't work when using internet to get on facebook., Facebook app actually is worthless when you can't share things
Summary: I really wanted the Warp phone, which was impossible to find anywhere except Boost's online store where my orders never went through properly. So this phone was actually my second choice. The only things I don't like about it are: 1. When I bought the phone, the app I most wanted for it (barcode scanner) didn't work because the camera doesn't have auto-focus. 2.
Excerpt: I think it is OK for a starter android phone. I would like for it to be faster on the internet. Also the memory(on board) is very small. Calls are okay but could us a better signal. Stand by time is okay and talk time is good . Battery is horrible if you use the internet or apps a lot .
Pros: screen is great., Android 2.3, stand-by time is okay, talk time is good, Wifi
Cons: Battery life stinks, 3g signal is not so good, camera is not so good
Summary: This is my first Smartphone, and I've had it for about four months. Aside from the calls being dropped once in a while, it functions fairly well. I am able to access the internet through any wifi connections available, and I love that I can connect my phone to the aux jack in my car to listen to music, or to utilize its gps function for directions.
