"Looks good. Sounds good."4.5 starson by scrumtalecent
Pros: So far it does what it's supposed to.
Cons: Possibly battery life
Summary: I've had this phone for a week now and I've seen many horrible reviews on it and so far I've had none of the problems I've seen besides maybe the battery life. It seemed to die a little quicker than my last one, but lately I've been using the MP3 player a lot, so that takes up a lot of battery life, but lasts around 4 or 5 hours of constant use. What I haven't seen in the reviews is how well the MP3 player works. I thought the sound would be a lot more "tinny", but I think it sounds pretty good. I haven't used music on previous phones before, but I like how it automatically stops when a call comes in and automatically starts again when I hang up, no questions asked. The light-up touch screen is a nice touch. When using the music player, the FF, Play/Pause, and RW buttons light up for about 10 seconds and then turn off. If you want them back on, you barely touch one and it lights back up and turns the front lcd screen back on. The space to touch is small, so you don't have to worry about the buttons turning on when grabbing your phone. Even if you do, you have to touch it again to play, FF or RW.
I don't have a problem with the fingerprints that end up on the glass. I'm a guy, so some fingerprints aren't going to impact my opinion of the phone. I also like the slimness and sturdiness of the phone. From side to side, it's slimmer than most, but when opened up, it has a perfect length while not feeling fragile at all. The camera is good, not great, but that's never a big deal in a phone. Overall, it's a very nice phone. Through verizon's New Every Two Year plan, it was only $20, so I'm not complaining till it really screw up on me.
