    Great features, but buggy

    This is an amazing phone for its price and features very clear beautiful screen great quality photos. What is not soo great is that every couple hours or every time you turn it off and on it pops up with a warning in the notification area "services denied by network" took it to a metro store they could not fix, spend hours on phone with tech support and customer care they could not fix. took it back to the best buy store and the guy checked 2 brand new right now of the box which were not activated and they did it too. nice phone but buggy software. I ended up moving away from this phone and switching to the quattro cool pad which is also a awesome phone with no bugs and a larger screen

    This is an excellent phone for the most part. I love the sleek look of it. the white color is innovative. The picture quality is awesome, and I love the rotating camera. Setup was extremely easy. My problems with the phone are: I sometimes have problems dialing out, or making phone calls, phone just locks up sometimes and I have to take the battery out just to get it working again. one other small issue is that the language button while texting is hit often by mistake due to improper placement. Over all the qualities do out weigh the problems, and I would recommend this phone.

    After activating the phone and taking it home, error messages appeared about not having certain rights, and it was stuck in with EVDO speeds. After much research, calls, restarts, I finally took it back and received a new phone. The new one had 4G working. Strange and a bit of a hassle. Make sure 4G is working before you leave the BB store.

    best for the money so far...be sure to get the BEST BUY WARRANTY!.. I bought METRO phones for all my grandkids...unbeatable rates....but none hold up vey long. The perfect remedy is the BEST BUY 2 YR WARRANTY...they replace w/ a new phone immediatly!

    Bought this gift for mother's day gift. My mom is very happy with it. It's a Samsung Galaxy without the exaggerated Galaxy size. The screen picture quality is something that I'm not completely happy with but overall it's a great phone.

    if you're looking for and average Android smartphone at a good price with no expectations of real high end quality Sams then this would be a great purchase. especially for older people who just want a simple smartphone platform.

    I like the phone, but I was concerned about it being discontinued at Best Buy. The phone's overall functioning is great. The pictures are clear and it's easy to send and receive texts.

    This phone is laggy and freezes a lot perhaps the software not a great idea. But this is an inexpensive phone and pics, music, and apps are great feats still.

    It does everything that my old Droid X did, but malfunction. Good size screen. Would have gone with large screen if I didn't already have an iPad.

    Wasn't told the difference between a smart phone (what I had before) and this 4g phone. Overall, good deal for the money. Good pic quality.

    The phone is ok. I do not like that I have to charge the phone twice in one day. Everything else is good though.
