Great phone for a good price!

 

Mar 31, 2013 by Resendetra   updated Mar 31, 2013

I bought this phone the other day to replace my HTC Wildfire S that I had through Metro PCS. I love it already! It has much more internal storage than my old phone, which is a big plus in my book. Touch screen is a bit overly responsive, all you really have to do is hover your finger over something and it will work, which sometimes can be a problem. One time I dropped my phone in my lap and it opened an app and another time I was talking on the phone and my face decided to open Angry Birds, so like I said, overly responsive. It has a nice bright screen and the phone never seems to lag or become sluggish, even though I already have a lot of apps. The phone does become a bit hot when talking on it for too long, so if you have a bluetooth headset, use it. ICS works perfect on this phone, but swipe for answering calls isn't always easy to use. This phone does have predictive text (auto correct), but you have to go into settings and turn it on and sometimes it can be too predictive. Battery life could be better, but that could be that my apps are eating it up. But all-in-all it's a great phone. Even my boyfriend wants this phone over his Galaxy S II.

PROS
---------
- Great call quality
- Very responsive touch screen
- Fast and responsive - no lag from what I can see
- Great 3G coverage everywhere in southwest Michigan
- Nice front facing camera for Skyping
- Bright screen
- Good amount of internal storage

CONS
---------
- Difficult to answer phone calls due to the swipe feature
- Users with big fingers may have trouble using the on screen keyboard
- Battery life

LOVE THIS PHONE!

I absolutely love this phone! This is coming from someone who replaced his Replenish with this phone. I can go 4 days w/o a charge. I text a lot and very rarely use it to talk on. I use several apps, and they haven't changed the battery behavior at all. This is a big deal for me because I had to charge my Replenish every single day. It takes decent pictures. Far better than the Replenish. It runs os 4.0.
I've had my fair share of cell phones. Some with touch screen keyboards, 95% of them with physical keyboards. The virtual keyboard on this phone is a lot easier to use. But I prefer the speech to text feature. It works 90% of the time. Training it is a pain, but once done it's a godsend feature.
I love the security of 4.0. You can set the phone up with a passcode instead of using the slide to get to the main screen. I can't think of a single bad thing to say about this phone. In my opinion, it's worth its weight in gold!
