    this phone is horrible

    Posted
    lexiboo

    first off i only purchased the phone cause i thought it was $99 but it wasnt i ended up paying $210 for the phone. got home was happy the first day but after that the just really terrible. it glitches too much and freezes up. plus it cuts off and the apps run slow. it corrupted my memory card erasing all my important pictures and music. it takes forever to start up and the camera is horrible. it takes like 15 minutes before it sends out a call and sometimes you might not get a text message or a voicemail. if in an emergency you will be stranded waiting on this phone to make a call. i missed a job interview because the job that called the phone was unable to reach me due to the delay in the phone. this phone is not worth any money and should be taken off the market. very very horrible phone and farrrrrrrrrrrrrr from smart. dont be desprate and buy this phone save your money and get a quality phone cause this phone is awful. the phone drops calls so much that you will find yourself using other peoples phones or a pay phone or landline. people will not even want to call you the calls drop so much. WASTE OF MONEY!!!!!! TRUST ME THIS PHONE IS HORRIBLE AND YOU WILL REGRET WASTING YOUR MONEY ON THIS PHONE! AND METRO CUSTOMER SERVICE IS AWFUL! FREQUENT DROPPED CALLS BARELY NO SIGNAL, 3G NEVER WORKS, THE APPS RUN SLOW, IT COMES PRE LOADED WITH A BUNCH OF APPS YOU WILL NEVER USE, THE TOUCH SCREEN IS AWFUL, THE CAMERA IS AWFUL, THIS PHONE IS A TRAGEDY!

    Pretty Decent Deal For Price

    I had been wanting to upgrade to Android for a while and not have to pay all the outlandish costs with other carriers,so I was happy to see Metro finally start carrying Android phones. That being said,the phone is pretty cool.It had access to all the Android apps,and a lot of nice options for free.It's clean,modern and easy to use. I am a little disappointed that the camera has no flash (boo!) and the battery life is pretty weak.I know compared to the phones I was used to (which could last me 3 days,uncharged),smartphones do use more battery power.But having to charge it sometimes twice a day depending on what I'm using it for? That's super inconvenient.I have noticed its been better since I downloaded the free app - killer.But a bigger battery capacity would be an awesome option for this phone. Also,I have noticed when the phone gets overwhelmed (possibly) it will start lagging loading my conversations,or randomly pull up applications I didn't ask it to.Usually I'll power it off for a minute to give it a little creak and its just fine.Otherwise,I'm pretty pleased with it.

    The phone is ok. You couldn't get more for the amount paid. I put a 16gb card in it cause the 2gb card it comes with is just not enough. It still lags once in awhile and the internet is pretty slow unless your on wi-fi. Every other day i need to turn it off and turn it back on cause even though i have a application killer for some reason it gets really slow so where it will take 20+ seconds to open even the messages. If you have the back light turned up to see during the day the battery drains within a couple hours =/ Android is the reason, well also the price every month. Over all though its not a bad phone considering i went from verizon's droid to this. I'm fairly happy.

    Androids *Special* Half Brother

    Lets just say, when it comes to SMART phones I would not buy a Metro phone ever again. This phone has SO many Issues it's not even funny. They call it a Smart Phone but yet it dos not do anything SMART, it takes forever for it to open anything, 99% of the time you cant even access the Network to do anything SMART with it. The keyboard is * special* the letter you pushed shows up 40sec after u push it, the send and delete key are too close to where when u go to delete u send instead. In short I would market this phone as *Metro PCS Androids Special Half Brother.* a pager has a Bigger processor then this thing has.

    Cons: Call quality, freezes up, no way to set up ringer distinctions for messages vs. text and updates Unable to dowload Flash Player for other streaming videos, 2.5 headphone output. troublesome to use keyboard. Wi fi ready. Pros: No contract , Discovering the android world, Website does allow for 2.3 update. You tube streaming built in, Google navigator is awsome, will accept up to 16 gig memory, Speach to text features. Wifi can be senetive.

    It maybe an "Android", but it doesn't run like

    I have used a lot of phones in my day, but this phone is the WORST phone ever! A person with averages-sized fingers can't text properly because the touch keyboard keys are too close. If you hold the phone to your ear, your call can easily disconnect. The buttons that control the screens do not conform to the standard Android format. If you're going to get an Android device for MetroPCS, get the LG or Samsung.

    I have had this cell phone for close to a year with nothing but problems after problems.... I have had 3 phones from the manufacture due to freezing all the time, turning off while on a call, and I can go on and on..... after complaining for several months I am being updated to the Metro PCS LG Optimus M690..... wish me luck.

    Not very user friendly

    Keyboard is difficult to type messages on. Can't figure out how to turn off default apps that send useless notifications all day long. Battery runs down quickly. Difficult to get or sustain internet connection. Calendar alarms won't sound alerts; must use separate alarm.

    This is a good phone. I've only had it for a month and it's been doing ok. It is not too difficult to use. The battery life is average. I think the camera is lacking though. I tried to install a barcode reader and it hasn't been working too well. I have also taken a few pictures and they are not too high in quality.

    Everything on this phone looks good until u try and use it. The market downloads are elephant slow, the apps are elephant slow the text messages are elephant slow, the internet is elephant slow. This phone is horribly slow. Enless u have no other options then don't buy this phone.

    This phone went from bad to worst when the software got upgraded, the phone is constantly shutting down for no reason, the apps freezes and force close all the time. Save your money for a better phone

    I like the phone. Has a 3.2 megapixel camera. the phone is fast, but I dont like the fact that the phone does not support angry birds. But other than that, its a great phone.

    Will never buy or recommend this garbage. Spend more on a good phone that works. Everything from phone calls to wi-fi is horrible.
