Slide out keyboard!

(about 1 year ago)

Over all a pretty decent phone... had some issues with battery life but after changing som some settings like sync off it is quite good... can last at least 2 or 3 days using it regularly. In comparison with other phones I like it quite a bit... very user friendly... I have had mine for over a year now... More

Utter garbage. Should not be sold.

(about 1 year ago)

From the time I got this phone, it was nothing but trouble. Phone required manually manipulating my settings every time I lost WiFi signal, because it could not, for the life of it, automatically switch back from WiFi to a mobile data network. 22 days after buying it, the touchscreen is completely dead.... More

Battery life

(about 1 year ago)

This phone is absolutely amazing. Only one problem, Battery life. The phone runs excellently, but what's the point if the damn phone can't even turn on!?! I went online and did some research, And the reason for the battery drainage if because of the wifi connectivity. So you just turn it off... More

Brutal

(about 1 year ago)

Poor battery life even with GPS, bluetooth and WiFi turned off and screen turned to low power. Never had as many dropped calls on any other phone. Keyboard is the only nice thing on it. It makes me miss my Blackberry.

AWFUL Battery life

(over 2 years ago)

I've had the phone for 4 days and am charging it 2-3 times a day. I am texting about 6-10 times a day and have less than 30 minutes of talk time. I have reduced my screen brightness, disabled my WiFi and uninstalled the live wallpapers, but still, the battery lasts only 6 hours in a standby mode. Today... More
