A solid low cost full QWERTY phone in a small and light package.
14 June 2013
Summary: This phone is a good value for basic text and talk, particularly if you want something in a really small package without a data plan. (But if you really want a true smartphone, the HTC Aria is fantastic alternative to the Magnet in a similar size.) Anyway, after a month of use, here's what I like: - Size. With a QWERTY keyboard, it is simply hard to get much smaller and lighter. I often have to double check my pants pocket to make sure I actually have it.
Summary: I bought this phone as a back-up to my Samsung Strive as it's been shutting down intermittently when I send a text. I could not get used to the raised "bumps" on the keyboard and found texting much slower and cumbersome. Also, accessing contacts to text was a pain. I finally switched back to my old phone and stuck the Magnet away as an emergency back-up.
Summary: downgraded to this phone recently, and I'm loving the phone. Being a man, the texting keys are a little small for my fingers. So just a minor inconvenience. the phone sounds are a little dated and not much to choose from, but that's something easy to address. This phone is incredibly light weight, and tough. Overall I am happy with this product.
Summary: Two things I do not like about the phone: the keys are way too small and the volume is so low you have to turn the speaker on and then it is not clear. I only use the phone for talking and text.
Summary: This phone was bought as a replacement by and for my son who broke his Pantech slider. I initially replaced his phone with a basic $10 Samsung flip and he hated it. He loves that this phone has a camera, can receive his Facebook alerts and is a cool color among the kids in his school. It was in very good condition and his only complaint was that the arrow down track button is very hard to push.
