Some good, some bad
14 October 2014
Summary: I got this as an upgrade to the HTC G2/Desire Z. It's much faster, which is nice. I don't like the power button position, I can't ever press it correctly without also pressing the volume up button at the same time. The G2 had a directional main button that let you move the cursor around, this doesn't.
Excerpt: Except for one minor thing this phone has everything needed. The only problem is that the signal "bars" don't work on mine; but compared to what I had (and spent a lot more money on!) that is trivial. The battery life is twice as long as the ... I got from .... It actually lasts all day (or more if not used but on)! In addition it has alarms, gps, all the Android Apps I want.
Excerpt: This is a touchy phone, and sometimes even a light touch will result in an unintended feature becoming active. Battery life is dismal, so have a charger handy at all times. Standard smartphone features are present and personal apps can be downloaded vis Google Play. The phone does seek & find Wi-fi readily. As an entry level Android phone it is a good value.
Great phone, great specs, feels really good, absolutely worth every penny.

Summary: Great phone, works very well, and is easy to use, it's very custom-izable, and is quick at doing anything you need it to, even when running multiple apps in the background. The only issue i had with it really is, and this is just my particular device, the battery. It's faulty and won't hold a charge for more then 3-4 hours, though I'm using it for VERY light session (Literally just texting, nothing more.
Excerpt: features I missed right away - cannot arrange pictures into albums and cannot disable notification sounds only. All the reviews raved about the camera - I find clarity a problem as well as the color - off just enough.
Excerpt: This is my first smart phone, still not really sure how to use it. I really have nothing to compare it with,. I just changed from about a 5 year old Samsung Flip Phone I could no longer get support from from my previous cell phone provider for backing up my contacts. I got this flip phone when I could no longer use my analog Bag Phone. Other than the problem with backing up my contacts I probably would not have changed. As it is I'm slowly learning how to use it.
Summary: This phone is as feature rich as the qwerty phones come. I had 2 before this one that the OTA effectively bricked though, took battery life down to 1-2 hours. yes it got quite hot too. this one I didn't update, running the samsung touchwhiz over 4.0 android. tasker does report low memory at times but the phone seems pretty solid and responsive.
