for the Samsung Galaxy Note II (Verizon):
Hasn't lost a beat.
I've used too many phones. I'll review em all when I can. Anyway, I'm back to using a Galaxy Note 2 and love it. I sold it to get the s5. After I got that stolen, I used an iPhone 4 for a bit. Got sick of iCrap, so I traded it got a Note 2 (why they traded for that, I don't know. But it worked in my favor). Cons: No "eye scroll" mode. Unless I'm absolutely doing it ...

for the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (CDMA):
The Carrier stops it from getting top rating.
It's an amazing phone, I'm just not too keen on Sprint's sparadic 4G LTE coverage here in Phoenix. Pros: Battery life (3200 MAH). 16 MP camera. Speedy as all get out. 32GB user memory (before bloatware) Cons: The carrier. Since I also have a VZW line, I might pay outright for a Note 3 soon (if I can't wait on a 4). Samsung is defintely the iPhone slayer. God bless.

for the Samsung Galaxy S III (CDMA):
Almost no difference between versions.
I've briefly had at&t's S III and Verizon's S III. I had to let my Verizon version go due to finances (I had an "Amber Brown" color. Hard to find). I have Virgin Mobile's version because it was the least expensive "monthly" version to purchase out of them, Net 10, Straight Talk, Family Mobile, etc.... The ONLY thing I don't like is that it doesn't have mobile hotspot; whereas its older brother, the S II, does. Everything else is ...

for the Samsung Galaxy S III (Verizon):
Second go around.
I had an at&t Galaxy S3. No complaints there. Now that life happened and I'm on Verizon, I decided I want the same thing (I also have an iPhone [check my review for it], but there's no rule against having two lines). Walmart had it in brown (VZW doesn't have brown anymore, so I got lucky). Other than icons mysteriously dissapearing and the one time I was in 3G when I should have clearly been in 4G LTE, this ...

for the Apple iPhone 4 (CDMA):
What makes this phone just shy of the baddest phone on the planet?
The processor. I can live with a 3G phone, but the processor sucks. That's why I can't give it the 5 than an Apple product should get. Everything else, though, is solid. There's no need to be a dead horse, as it's as good as all the other pros listed before my review. God bless. tgc1980

for the HTC Desire C (CDMA):
It's good for the price.
It's an okay device, overall. Pros: Decent battery life. FM Radio Good camera. Cons: slow internet For the price, it's good. If you have the money, definitely get something better. God bless.

Mar 23, 2013, 11:31 AM
for the BlackBerry Curve 9360:
Best BlackBerry yet!
Cons: battery life. App selection. Pros: everything that die hard BB users love, including a better camera and an FM radio. I can't wait to see what the next model has for us!. God bless.

for the LG Quantum:
This Quantum should take a leap....off a bridge!
I bought it and returned it within a few hours. It was meant to replace my Captivate Glide, but a broken phone as better than this one. Pros: I no longer have it Cons: Couldn't download apps, despite being in an area surrrounded by towers. It was hard to text on. I didn't spend more than I needed to I've always been borderline about LG. This phone doesn't help. Is it LG's fault? Or.Windows Phone's fault? I'm not sure, but I'm staying away from them both.

Jul 15, 2012, 10:27 AM
for the HTC Status:
It's better than i thought it would be!
I've had many phones. This seems to have all the features I'd want in a phone: two cameras, FM, BlackBerry-like keyboard, etc..... If this phone would have had more internal memory and a stronger battery life, it'd be unstoppable. However, it's still good enough for me not to miss having an iPhone.

for the BlackBerry Curve 8530:
cricKet's best phone, in my humble opinion
I've traded phones a lot. I started off with cricKet's Huawei Ascend II, then I went to the ZTE Score (both are Android phones), then (after losing calls and work because the Score sucked), I went back to a BlackBerry phone: cricKet's only BlackBerry, the 8530 Curve. Pros: E-mail. Better call signal than the previous cricKet phones I had. Decent camera. Cons: Like other cricKet smartphones, it suffered slow speed because of the 1GB per month data allotance. Cheap feel. I had the ...

Apr 8, 2012, 9:11 AM
for the Huawei Ascend II:
One of cricKet's best phones.
Why I gave this up for the ZTE Score, I'll never know. Cons: No flash for the camera. Battery life. Pros: Never lost a call (minus the areas where EVERYONE loses calls). Decent Camera/video. Hotspot capable. Cool looking. This is a good phone for the price. If you can't get a Mercury, but want a decent Android for cricKet, you can't lose with this.

Apr 8, 2012, 9:07 AM
for the ZTE Score M / Score:
The Score gets a negative Score.
I don't want to give a fancy introduction. Here's the truth of the matter: Pros: Nice camera. Slim phone. Cons: Bad signal (I used it on cricKet. While cricKet's network HAS improved, this phone didn't get the memo. I lost work over this phone's ability to keep a call connected.) Slow internet. Low, low battery life. 1GB card? in 2012??! I got this phone for $30. In short, you get what you pay for.

Jun 16, 2011, 3:09 PM
for the Huawei Ascend:
I wanted to give this phone more, but couldn't.
I'm only using this cricKet Huawei Ascend because I'm in a very broke period in life. I've had other Android and BlackBerry phones, and they're all better than this. Pros: Camera is decent. Large screen. Free, since I gave them my phone and ported my number over (that's the only reason it's as high as 3.5) Cons: I was quickly reminded of this carrier's lousy service. Applications often make me have to click on "force close" The battery life is HORRIBLE!!!!! 2.5 headset jack? Really???? ...

for the Huawei Comet:
Good little phone
After having numerous problems with my BlackBerry from a different carrier (the one in Yellow and Black), I decided to get a Comet on the side. While it's a "lower" Android, it works excellently. Cons: Battery life. No predictive text like other Androids. Doesn't insert apostrophes automatically, like other smartphones. Pros: Everything else. I spent $180 on mine (it's technically Prepaid), but works better than my postpaid BlackBerry by far. In due time, I want to get a 4G phone like the mytouch 4G ...

Mar 2, 2011, 2:38 AM
for the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330:
Hopefully, it'll grow on me.
I'm no stranger to BlackBerry phones. My favorite of all time is the BlackBerry Bold 9700 that T-Mobile has. I've had to replace this phone already in the first week. I understand that lemons can happen with any phone, any carrier, but it's still annoying. Anyway, here's my review: Cons: Freezes like no other. Had to re-boot it in order for it to charge. The reception on this one is worse than the previous one. Pros: It still has the same things that any ...

Jan 26, 2011, 1:44 PM
for the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9300:
So far, so good
I'm sure more than 3 people have this phone. If not, they should. This is the most flawless BlackBerry I've owned, and I've owned a lot. Cons: No flash, but I'll live. Pros: Reboot time is much quicker than ANY BlackBerry out there (way to go, RIM!) Voice quality. Great camera. E-mail doesn't miss a beat. Everything else that true BlackBerry owners love. The Curve's keypad is the best, imho. If this phone holds out, I'll ignore my urge to get the 9780. Thanks ...

for the BlackBerry Storm2 9550:
This phone made me come back to BlackBerry
Well, as they say, "Once you go BlackBerry, you never go back". I ventured into the world of Android with the LG Ally. Not a bad phone, overall, but it was missing things in my opinion. I'd had the first storm and wasn't impressed. I played with one at the Verizon Wireless store and later traded with someone off of craigslist. (I traded for a phone that was worth like $200 more AND works better! Nice, huh?). Well, let ...

for the BlackBerry Curve 8900:
I like it, even if it IS older.
This phone is awesome. Coming from an 8320, anything's a step up. Cons: I wish I could get Blackberry 6 on it. Pros: Good reception Excellent camera Little-to-no slowness. E-mail doesn't miss a beat. Everything else...... I'll cherish this till it breaks or I can afford the upcoming 9780 Bold for T-Mobile. I'm sure this will be more than fine until then. God Bless tgc1980

Sep 12, 2010, 2:21 AM
for the HTC G1:
Not bad for the first Android
I had one, but sold it so I can get a Cliq. Well, let's get into it. Cons: The battery sucks. Low memory (I know this was the first Android, but still....). No 3.5 headphone jack. Pros: 3G No dropped calls Decent camera Easy to use keyboard Many apps to choose from. Solidly built. Sometimes, I miss it. but I gotta keep up with the Jones, Kardashians, etc..... G2, where ya at?

Sep 12, 2010, 12:46 AM
for the Motorola Cliq:
Good enough to make me forget about BlackBerry!
This phone is awesome, to say the least! I have the white one (for those that really wanted to know). Cons: Can't get my videos to play (maybe I just need to fiddle with it some more!) Android version 1.5?? Really?!? Pros: Great reception. 3G, and all the benefits, therein. A full keypad (something I sorely missed during my myTouch days). Moto Blur!! (That speaks for itself) Decent battery life for a smartphone. This is an awesome phone. I'm looking, however, at getting a myTouch Slide. ...

Aug 15, 2010, 9:24 PM
for the BlackBerry Curve 8330:
Boost Mobile's 8330 Curve is the best Curve of all!
What a phone this is! I'm no stranger to BlackBerry phones. I've had the Storm, 8310, 8320, 8330 (Both Verizon and Sprint), and many others. The Boost BlackBerry Curve 8330 rocks! Cons: A tad slow, but that's my doing. I always forget to close programs. Some programs (messengers, Facebook, etc....) Were not pre-installed. Pros: Has 5.0, software, instead of 4. Great camera. Solid reception on Boost. Was $149, and comes with memory card, pouch, etc... In conclusion: They say that a newer model is on its way; ...
