BEST CELL FOR THE MONEY NOW on VIRGIN
Carrier: Virgin Mobile
I just picked one of these up to see what its made of and Honestly it should cost $250 and is as good in Hardware as the Samsung Galaxy S2 and Victory easily. Actually it runs circles around the Samsung S3 MINI @ $249 but its not unlocked (Big advantage there).
It also specs in most areas just like the Iphone 4S too but you get more features and PRICE LOL!!!!!!!
OK so you get a great performer with Huge battery and lots of good features just like Samsung Touchwiz but I don't really like the White Interface in Settings (BIG Deal). ONLY bad is small user rom of 1.2gig.
Has a stronger black level than my Nexus 4 but I miss the Auto Brightness. But thats it so far. Buy it!!
Using Performance Benchmarks lets you see EXACTLY where these cells fit in the power and performance range. You can download the Passmark Test from Google Play yourself and run several for an average but make sure all open Apps are closed and reboot once. Then about 15 to 100 people submit these Benchmarks for every phone around and the guys Average them out so they are right on. Individual tests for CPU, Disk and Memory writes, with 2D & 3D Video comprise the OVERALL Passmark System Performance.
