"Just a great phone."4.5 starson by clions3
Pros: Crystal clear interior screen, long battery life, good keypad, easy to use
Cons: Somewhat blurry exterior LCD screen, is prone to scratches but what phone isn't?
Summary: This is just a good, user-friendly phone.
Everyone's falling into the Razr-hype, and I did have the opportunity to purchase one, but instead I opted to pay $30 more and get this phone. All of my friends prefer this phone over the Razr, and I can see why.
First of all, you'll notice that this phone is somewhat "stylish". It gleams and isn't too bulky but it's not too small that you can barely dial a number.
The camera is decent. The flash is probably the best flash I've seen on a phone. If you turn on nightvision, wow! It burns my eyes, it's so bright.
Now, some people have been complaining about reception. My friends mostly have the LG VX5200 or the Motorola E815 and we all have the same amount of bars. Maybe it just depends on where you live, I'm not sure.
There are a lot of ways to personalize it too. I liked how you can change the way the menu is set-up. You can basically almost change any setting on this phone.
As for Verizon including "crappy ringtones", well all phones have those ringtones. Of course Verizon wants you to buy ringtones, why wouldn't they?
However, you can record a sound, send it to yourself, and save it as a ringtone as an alternate to buying ringtones.
All in all, it's a very good phone for its price. It's simple to use and has a great look and feel to it.Updated
So now I've this phone for a little over a month. It still works beautifully but I have dropped it twice.
Since it's a little on the bigger side, it tends to slide out of pockets. It looks a little dented up, but not too bad. However, since I've been so sick of dropping it and getting it scratched up, I looked online for hours for a cheap, good case. I found a great site: www.daydeal.com. They have great cases for a really good price, plus free shipping for all cell phone accessories.
I'm also thinking about buying the Vcast Pack, and a memory card for my phone, so I can listen to music. Still thinking about it, though.
