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?
Excerpt: I had this phone for about three years now, currently looking for another phone since this was one of the worst phones I had yet. Yes, it looks great but the functionality really is not good. First off, it is super slow for example when your texting and using the apps on the phone. It also, freezes at times that you have to pull out the battery to restart it again.
