Way too SLOW! Burns through battery in 30 min. if using internet or games
3 February 2013
Summary: Short battery life, slow processor, slow internet (even 4g due to slow processor), not enough ram. 80% of the ram is used even with no apps running. The phone comes with too many apps already on it which all run in the background using the little ram and processing power. Physically the layout is perfect, its fairly sturdy, and I like the size. Its just too slow!
Pros...AMOLED screen...Biggest Con...it's way to slow for the hardware.

Summary: The phone came with Android 2.2 Froyo and it was a bit slow to be sporting 1ghz processor. Updating it to Gingerbread made it god awful slow. WiFi is very slow as well it seems. When I do a speed test, the results are awesome. But in actual usage like web browsing, it is slow compare to mobile Safari. File downloads are very fast on wifi and even 4G. Backing out of applications is very slow too. The best thing about the device is the AMOLED screen.
Pros: Super AMOLED Plus screen, Quick settings in notifications dropdown, Great camera image quality
Cons: Contact management / syncing with Google contacts, Camera is SLOW, Browser SUCKS entirely, Hardware is UGLY and fragile, GPS takes FOREVER to find location, Touchwiz is INTRUSIVE, Battery charges SLOWLY
Summary: I'd rather give it like a 2 and a half. Because you get what ya pay for, very nice, snappy out the box, but like everyone else says, battery is atrociously short on terms of life. I fully charge it and on standby, wifi off, GPS off, mobile data off, it'd last about 15-18 hours I'd say. But as soon as you turn on that beautiful screen and use it, say bye bye. I have a special speed charger and being on Skype drains the battery faster than it can sharge lol.
Summary: I bought this phone because my other Droid phone would not work (that was my second phone). The phone was working well until a couple of weeks ago. Now when I make a call, the person on the other line has to hang up because my screen goes blank and won't turn on after a call. It is alright when you reach a person, but if you reach voice mail you have to turn the phone completely off to hang up. I will never buy a Droid phone again. I have had three in the last 18 months.
