Cheap Good Enough Phone.

 

Dec 9, 2014 by Steven-A

Carrier: Virgin Mobile

I bought this phone for around 40 Bucks a few months ago in a haste. I did not look closely anything besides its spec's. At the time I called it good enough. I have grown to quite like this phone. Even though I no longer use Virgin Mobile i still hang on to this phone and use it with out a carrier.

Pros.
-Price Point I paid 40. I have reason to believe you can find them for as low as 30.
-Ability to shoot 1080p video at 30fps(Other Budget phones cant do this IE 2014 Moto G that can only do 720p )
-1.2ghz dual core with 1gig of memory
-The Center Home Button allows you to turn it on easily while sitting on a table.
-The LED display light, Its Big, Multi Color, and it was a oval not just a dot. I liked that.
-NFC, I have yet to use it as the time of this writing. I just like knowing that i have it. And in theory using it one day.
-I liked the LG UI. It was snappy and still gave eye candy.

Cons
-Only 4 Gigs memory. Less this 2 Free to user. When i was using it as my only phone i had to juggle apps on which ones i really wanted.

Neutral:
-I did not care for Virgin Mobile in the Central Texas area.

BEST CELL FOR THE MONEY NOW on VIRGIN

 

Nov 23, 2013 by JMMB   updated Dec 9, 2013

Carrier: Virgin Mobile

I just picked one of these up to see what its made of and Honestly it should cost $200 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.
