    Do your research before buying this phone!

    Before you buy this phone, go to the Metro PCS website and make sure you are inside their coverage area. Note that if you are in the "Good" or "Moderate" coverage area you will have problems using this phone indoors - WHY?! Feels like we're living in "Green Acres" days if you have to go outside to make a call! Bought this for my daughter, and while she can text on it, we can't hold a complete conversation without the signal dropping. Also, if you are outside of your home area, the price per minute goes up. Since this is a smartphone, you are also REQUIRED to have their $50/mo. 4GLTE plan - this is not noted on the Best Buy website, which I didn't discover until AFTER I had purchased the $30 1,000 minute card for Metro PCS on the Best Buy website. BB says they are sending me a $30 gift card since they can't take back the card #thank you - good customer service#, but we are returning this phone and still shopping around for something that will work for us. Do your research first! Very disappointed mom & daughter.

    Bought mine as a replacement for my huawei ascend. No comparisons here,just lightening speed,long battery,and great call volume. Make sure you install the app killer and cache cleaner in the market. Download the zedge wallpapers & ringtones for free bling wallpapes and more. Secure your awesome phone cases on overstock.com. Sweet deals at afforable prices. Overall,happy new android! Best phone ever!!pictures are so hd. Better than you could imagine. Have an exciting metropcs year! Works well with the monster iclarity wireless speaker and the bose wireless speakers. 5 stars *****

    I bought this to replace my old Metro PCS cell , because the duration of the battery was not more than 5 hours after 1 year of use (the previous unit was Huawei 3G not recommend to anyone, because very slow and crashes all the time ). My husband bought a unit like this 6 months before and had no problems, it is fast and efficient, so I decided to buy one for me. I researched the prices on the Metro PCS website and was more expensive than Best Buy. I purchased at a Best Buy Mobile inside the mall, I was very well attended, and I left the store talking with all my contacts and files transferred. It will be perfect if coming with front camera, but for this price without contract.....can not ask for more, right ?

    I had tried 2 other prepaid phones and service before I tried Metro PCS. This one is a keeper. The phone service is good even inside my house which is where I had no service with other companies. I like the apps and ease of use. This is my first smartphone and I am enjoying the extras with it. Sometimes it lags and has to be reset which is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5. The phone itself seemed a bit cheaply made but is has proven to sturdy and durable so far. Not unhappy with my decision to try them. Wish I had tried them first.

    Samsung admire is a good phone, I uprated from the huawei ascend and am happy with the decision. The possessor is much faster , the screen picture is clear, and when hooked up to WiFi it shows just how fast it can go i use it to stream YouTube , Pandora, accuweather and Google books the battery does go fast about 3hrs if streaming or calling but in standby it does fine over all its a good android for the price ..

    This is a good phone, and that's that.. The LCD screen is very low end. The phone lacks internal storage 250mb, comes with a 2GB micro SD card. No flash 4 camera. But I paid 59.99+tax. So what more could I ask 4. 50$. Unlimited everything at 3g speeds. MetroPCS great company. Beware can't see youtube, stops all the time. Web works great, camera don't no, sorry. Wifi works good with phone(only time youtube works). This phone is a good basic intro smart phone.

    This phone is wonderful. :) I had never owned an android phone before so this was a new experience. It works beautifully and despite being a MetroPCS phone, the service with this phone is nice. The only thing that is a bit of a bother is that the battery life is not great. BUT I've researched it and this is typical of ALL android phones. So that aside, I would say go for it on this phone :) Plus, the price on this is pretty good too.

    A very good phone for the price. The battery lasts two days long... which is great for me. I hate eating battery phones. The screen definition is good, the pics it takes are fine, is not a slow phone providing you don't fill it with unnecessary applications and it is nice looking. If you want more, build your own.

    You have to pay at least $50 plan for this phone but the web browsing is slower than a dead turtle for 3g, a joke from metro pcs and they have non existent customer service support, clueless.. Buy a 4g phone and still pay the same plan for much better service and web browing.. But the phone call quality is solid

    Pros: Ease of use, fast, able to root Cons: The answer and end call buttons are touchscreen and not part of the phone making it difficult sometimes to place and end a call.

    Phone is kind of hard to figure out and operate. The reception is not great as breaks up. Poeple have trouble hearing you at times and you have trouble hearing them. A lot of features for the money but phone quality is not the best.

    I needed a cell phone with Android. It is the best I got because of the excellent price: less than 100 dollars. It is a good device. I like it.

    Good Phone!!! 3G is excellent on it! After years of paying for contract phones, I would NOT go back. The service is excellent if not better.
