Phone Scoop

A solid value for MetroPCS customers

from Phone Scoop
The Huawei Premia 4G may not offer the best in hardware or software, but what it does offer works well. The design is a bit plain and the materials are obviously from the bargain bin, but they fit the Premia's $99 price point. Beyond the design and feel, the hardware definitely functions as it should: the screen looks good, the signal performance is excellent, and the battery exceeded my expectations... Full review

Short battery life and mediocre call quality

from Cnet

Ordinarily, I'll put up with a lot for a rock-bottom price (even after rebate), and for coin-counters, having the power of Android at one's fingertips for a Benjamin up front is a really good find. However, since MetroPCS is selling a bundle of phones at the $100 price point at the time of this review, you'll have options.

Although I like the camera, the processor, and details like a nice large helping of RAM, the phone's short battery life is a major stumbling block for me and keeps me from recommending the phone fully. If you're seeking a handset in this price range, take a good h... Full review

I've had this phone for almost a year and it works just as good as when i bought it. Don't get me wrong it has a little bug every once in a while but nothing serious that has stopped it from working. The battery is a negative for the phone and its not got a big enough screen for me, i watch alot of TV and play games on it. I love this phone it does everything the iphone can do and even the galaxy s4 but its cheaper can't beat that nice!!!

This cell sucks!!

I just got this cell 2 weeks ago, and already i had to go through 3 cell phones with this. Metro wont let me switch it with a different cell. The battery goes out so fast and when someone calls me I can hardly hear them!

Well there is one thing wrong with it... I haven't been able to get a custom rom on it because it's not supported by clockworkmod which I think is bulls***... but I'm sure it will soon enough xD

This is a piece of crap. I wouldn't sell this phone for a pennys worth. If it was charged 100%, it would die an just an hour. Dont waste your money on this thing, because you would have been ripped off.
