The Worst Phone I've Ever Used

 

Feb 1, 2017 by The_Vanderhuge

Carrier: T-Mobile

I got this phone as a loaner from T-Mobile, while my S7 was out for service and it is terrible. The screen is dull, battery life is awful, and the processor lags doing even basic tasks.

Pros: It was only a loaner, Decent reception, Good in call volume

Cons: Slow CPU, Terrible Camera, No NFC, Lags Playing Any Games, Lousy Battery, No Wireless Charging, No Fast Charging

Metro PCS Variant pretty good.

Carrier: MetroPCS

I have the On5 for three months now and I have to say that it is a very good budget phone. The audio in the earpiece and the speakerphone is superb. I like the "extra volume" feature especially in outdoor settings. I like that it comes out of the box with Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 installed.

The HD display is pretty good for a TFT display. The responsiveness of the touch screen is laggy sometimes. But it is not an AMOLED display, so it is good enough. The battery lasts longer than I expected. I still have about 85% at days end with light to moderate usage.

The headphone audio with the supplied music effects is nice sounding with my music or on I-Heart. The camera is a bit better than previous phones with a 5 MP Main and 2 MP front selfie, I need to play with the camera some more.

Overall, I am pleased with the phone. I elected to get a screen protector and a hard case which I recommend since the On5 does not have Gorilla Glass. There is no notification LED, but there is a camera flash and vibrate feature for notifications.

Signal on the T-Mobile network in the Plainfield, NJ area is very good, I receive full strength in most areas. I hope this helps you out if you are considering this phone.

Excellent phone

 

Jul 9, 2016 by zzzmann

Carrier: MetroPCS

First off the phone is 5.6" not 6". The battery life is the best of any phone I have ever had, I got over 7 hours of screen on time surfing,gaming and just about everything else. It bests the sony xperia z3 compact I had, it also lasts way longer than my droid turbo. The exynos processor didnt have any problems at all with lag.Pros-battery life,size,nice screen and price. Cons -none
