Summary: When I first purchased this phone (About two years ago when it was released), it was the best thing that ever happened in my mobile life. I never owned an android phone, and having such a high-end device at that time was truly amazing. The specs were impressive, the performance and speed was lightning fast, and the build quality was superb. I believed I finally found a phone that would last for a long time. I was wrong.
Pros: Looks Nice, Good Build, Fast User Interface
Cons: Constant Lag Spikes, Sub-Par Battery, Performance slows down
Summary: This is a good phone if you don't mind it freezing all the time. I didn't think I would care in the beginning but now it is so frustrating. When I'm on the phone with someone or trying to leave a message and I am trying to end the call, the screen doesn't light up and I have to take the battery out to restart the phone. When you have a cover on your phone this can get so annoying. I've cracked 2 covers by doing this now because they are so hard to take off.
Pros: -Similar to an iPhone, -Tons of downloadable apps, -Able to connect to WiFi to get bars if you do not get service in the area, -Small & light, -Front facing camera, -Nice camera to take pictures on regular side
Cons: -Freezes every few hours, or less, -Turns off randomly, -Phone dies way too fast. Woke up at 8am, went to Disneyland and phone died by the time I got there at 1PM
Excerpt: For a dual core phone, it's quite slow. I live in a 4G area, and when I say slow, I don't mean web browsing, or downloading apps. I mean interface, texting and sometimes even making a call. It wouldn't follow up on my texts, it'd lag behind. The auto correction was completely horrible, it'd always say "yoyah" for "hey". How do you even get that?
