Pros Small. Easy Keyboard Acess.
Cons Sucky Camera, Not good if you're a heavy texter, memory sucks, Service isn't good, Phone needs to be charged everyday, can't record anything. Not very loud.
Summary Back in Feburary, My grandmother died and while I was on her phone plan we had tmobile. I love tmobile, phones a little expensive but better than MetroPCS. My mom decided that she wanted something cheaper so she went to MetroPCS and she stuck with me with this phone. This phone is a good start for a 12-13 year old and i'm almost 18. There is no external memory, the phone only goes up to 35 messages then you have to delete. I was on the phone with the vet hospital about my dog yesterday and the whole time I had at least two bars and she still couldn't hear me. I am trading this phone back in and going back to Tmobile for the new Andriod Sidekick 4G.
If you want a small phone, bad camera, no memory, bad service, and all of the above, this is perfect for you otherwise, don't buy it.
Pros Has several features such as camera, gps, internet browser, tons of little extras.
Cons I wish the ringtones were better and it had a option for music.
Summary Great product and recommend it for others.
Pros it is thin, light weight,screen big enough,key board not o bad
Cons not a lot of metal on the surface. the color is black only, no other choice
Pros Qwerty Keyboard, Easy Add Contacts, Slim Design, Good Price, Lots of Features for basic phone. Cute phone and it looks deceptively like a mini blackberry.
Cons Weak Phone Volume. Connection between caller keeps breaking in and out. Other person couldn't hear me. BATTERY LIFE IS BAD.
Summary I switched to MetroPCS yesterday from ATT. I've had the phone for 24hrs and I spent the entire day getting to know it. My only option for my budget was between the Torino and Laylo. I've already read reviews between the two, so I was already leaning towards the Torino. At the store, my final decision was based on battery life. The guy there said the Torino is actually better than Laylo. Now I'm not so sure. - - In my room, I can barely get half of 1 bar signal. But somehow I was able to send and receive calls. The person on the other end could barely hear me and the connection kept breaking in and out. I had to stand by the window and hold the phone to my mouth, just so the other person could hear me. Even then, the connection was still breaking in and out. The same thing happened when I called MetroPCS 611 to speak to a rep. The phone kept breaking in and out. When I had ATT, I could get full bars on my phone and it didn't matter what part of the house I was at. - - Then there's the problem with the battery. When I got home, I charged it for over 2 hours (as recommended by the store guy). The phone was sitting by itself most of the time. I wasn't really using it. After about 2 hours, I saw the green battery life was reduced. How could it drain the battery that quickly when I wasn't even using the phone? The Torino isn't good if you have to bring it with you because the battery will die quickly. It's not even worth bringing it to work or school You have to carry a charger with you all the time and charge during the day. That's ridiculous! - - My old phone (from ATT) was a Motorola and I got it from Walmart. It was the prepaid phone and I just switched sim cards. I could charge it for an hour and it would still be fully charged after 24 hours. The Torino doesn't stay charged for 24 hours. That's very disappointing. - - The main thing I like about the Torino is it has a lot of features for such a basic phone. The Qwerty is great and it's easier to enter information.- - Right now, I'm considering taking it back and getting a better phone.
"Not a good phone"on by holyv
Pros Full keyboard.
Compact size fits in pocket well.
Cons A lot of software quirks that get very annoying. Voicemail notifiyer keeps beeping. A lot of lag when you press a button on the phone.
Summary For $30 its a decent phone. But it is quirky. It would be a decent phone if they got some updated software for it.
