Summary: this phone is not very good. the battery drains fast, it beeps or vibrates every 2 minutes and as far as i can tell there is no way of stopping it. the screen also flashes every couple minutes. very annoying. this phone is not very user friendly.
Summary: When purchasing this phone, take in to account that it is an OLD phone in phone years (released in 2012) and it was dated compared to it's competitors upon release, as it was released as a budget phone.
Excerpt: Oh well was good until they updated from ICS to Jelly Bean and I truly think it was the update that ruined this cell. Previously it was fine for me in midrange cells like the HTC ONE V but the Update made the cell MUCH SLOWER IN BENCHMARKS, USAGE AND NOW IT HAS RANDOM REBOOT ISSUES.
Pros: Large 2gig User Memory, Attractive Design, Good call quality, Brilliant Display, Easy Navigation, Super customizable, Long battery life, Decent Network considering the cost
Cons: Jelly bean made it almost unusable with random reboots up to 8 times a day. Some days its OK, WHY??, Ram is just 768meg but shows just 585m after hidden apps are accounted for, Virgin Mobile has the dumbest techs on the Planet and Samsung is not much better now, Why didn't I buy the extended warr...
Its a good phone, but it will become a pain in the ass

Summary: It seems like a wonderfull phone, but it will turn off pretty often without any reason. I bought it 6 month ago, and now it aint working well at all. People who call me barely hear me.. Its a pain in the ass can
Summary: I got this phone because of the on board space available. However, you cannot actively put apps on the SD card, the screen has a tendency to simply stop working and it seems to get really laggy at times.
It worked once... before the OS update then is went snail slow

Excerpt: Ok when i first bought his phone was great then there was a system update that broke it. Constent freezng where the screen becomes unresponsive, its very slow, So slow as it can take 15 seconds for the keyboard to come up for you to type anything.
Pros: works kinda
Cons: slow, camera take long time to use, freezes, random restarts and powering off
Summary: I've had this phone for only a month, and it's already started shutting off and turning back on by itself at least once a day, usually more. One time it did it seven times in a row. Other than this problem, the phone is great.
Summary: Edit August 2013: I am downgrading my experience to three stars. Here's why: After the Android update mentioned on other reviews, the phone does indeed freeze up every so often. You need to hold the power button down for a minute until it restarts itself.
Summary: I wanted to post a review for those out there in the category I was in: want an affordable smartphone option. Affordable can be a relative term, so I will clarify even more. I was looking for something like $80/month for me and my wife.
