    A Very Basic Phone

    • Top 250 ContributorTop 250 Contributor

    There are people for whom a very basic phone is perfect. If you are giving a phone to a ten year old child or to your 80 year old grandmother, they may be happy with a phone that can be used only for phone calls and texts. The Evolve is a good phone for such people. For the rest of us, the Evolve would be frustrating. It has very slow 3G data speeds which limit its ability to download music or stream videos. It has a tiny amount of storage for apps. You can add a 32GB micro SD memory card, but most apps can NOT be moved from internal memory. When internal memory is filled, the Evolve stops working. Just ONE large game will totally fill the Evolve's tiny memory. Battery life is poor. You can get through a 16 hour day with a few short phone calls and texts. But, if you watch videos over wifi, or use GPS navigation, the battery drains to zero in just two or three hours. Just reading the news on the internet drains the battery by 10% or 15% in just thirty minutes. The camera takes okay photos in bright sunlight, but has NO flash so your photos indoors will be poor. Music sounds great through high quality headphones or bluetooth speakers, but thin and weak through the Evolve's rear speaker. A plus: The Evolve connects reliably to wifi and to Bluetooth for streaming music. Add a 32GB micro SD card and the Evolve is a terrific way to listen to your music. The weak battery means you need to keep a charger handy. The Evolve sells for a very low price, so you can feel good about giving it to a child or taking it on a camping trip. But, it is too limited for most adults to enjoy using as their primary phone. Best Buy sells MUCH better phones for MetroPcs customers than the Evolve.
