Cheap & Easy Android, works great!
10 July 2013
Summary: Bought it for a cheap and easy unlockable smartphone. Wasn't able to make it run the most current Android OS, but it runs Gingerbread nicely, and had it rooted no problem. Functional replacement for my broken smartphone. Got what I paid for, works great!
Summary: I do not know that much about this phone...but there are many features I have never had in a phone before. Frustrating at times b/c it is so different. There are some features I miss from my "dumb" phone and I could have them with the Mesmerize...just need to take the time to read the disk. Overall a great phone.
Summary: I previously owned a phone like this but lost it, so i decided to buy another one. This phone is the same, good beginner android phone. It came with the software to root it, but i didnt do that. I haven't had any issues with it, other than sometimes when i hit the back key a few too many times, bing pops up with the word "fresh" being looked up, i'm not sure why lol. Bing sucks.
Summary: I actually traded a droid 1 for this and was intending to use it as my backup device(Droid 3). I love this thing so much that the Droid 3 is on the dock on my nightstand and this one is with me. The OLED screen is a marvel in itself. Perfect blacks. It is very lightweight. I love the fact that you can change the fonts. The phone isn't very fast but as long as you keep the apps to a minimum and don't bog it down with junk, you should be fine.
Summary: I bought this phone refurbished to replace my broken HTC Merge, and I really enjoy it! It has a nice big screen to navigate and explore the different apps, and the UI is really sleek. It freezes up minimally, but other than that, this is a solid smartphone!
Summary: I bought this phone about 7 months ago and I absolutely love it.Before I had a Blackberry Storm, and this is a MILLION times better, and I chose this phone instead of the iPhone because I prefer Android. I really love everything about this phone, only reason I gave it 4 stars is because sometimes it freezes, but then again that has happened to every phone I've ever had. Sometimes it can get a little slow.
good hardware, very very iffy software(blame verizon/bing/microsoft)

Summary: pro's 1. omg omg omg the screen is so pretty (really you have to see for your self, this phone is the i-500. the i-510(samsung DROID CHARGEEEEEE is this phone + 4g) can be found in most verizon stores) 2. hummingbird processor is "20% faster", but the important part is that the gpu(graphics card) is leapyears beyond any other phone at this price point. 3.
