Pros Sturdy construction
Cons Terrible battery
Dull front screen makes it almost impossible to use the screen to dial a phone number.
Horrible! Horrible! Horrible!
Summary I purchased this phone (online) for my mother to use on Boost. What a mistake that was! First, the phone came with a malfunctioning battery. It wouldn't hold a charge. A kind rep at a Sprint retail store was nice enough to replace the battery for free since Sprint had originally offered this phone as well. Now, the front screen is VERY dull and you can hardly see the numbers. This is just a poor phone overall. Thank goodness I didn't rob the bank to pay for it. We'll be looking for a replacement very soon. I would give this phone ZERO stars if I could! No more Sanyo phones. They used to be pretty good, but now they are poorly constructed.
Pros good resolution
good for texting
good battery life
camera is decent. (3meg) zoom is week
overall good phone
Cons might just be my phone but when using internet or gps back goes to super heat mode.
(through boost) has no games other than the three that come with it. can work apps but are non compatible even online.(again only boost as far as i know).
gps and web work
Summary This phone is a great phone with a good and bad phone company. (sprint) I can't talk for because they are a little more expensive a month. They might have more for the phone than boost.(boost) has become increasingly more painful. their help line has about a million different directories so don't expect an operator unless you go through those directories first. by the way, still trying to get one. bottom line I don't appreciate the way boost has treated me.
Back to the phone, it has a full keyboard with decent keys. still trying to get the heated back figured out, but no operators and bad salesmen. recommend buying from best buy or a store where you can take it back. this phone is also very frustrating on downloading apps. others say you can do it, but i haven't figured that out ether(have fun). at least you can check out your facebook and watch videos on youtube.
Now i would like to go down a list.
business owners, this is your phone because you can text fast, and get on the web. very easy to answer calls, but don't touch the touch the screen or you can face dial.
travelers, not recommended because it has a quite speaker for when it's hot and you don't want ac. when you turn the volume up, the sound quality goes down the drain and it doesn't really get louder. finally the're no options to keeping track of sports games on this phone. ESPN and fox sports don't work for this phone including ESPN alerts which might I add Sprint, Nextel, and Boost all blocked. only for fox sports and boost tv, both access to sports, not compatible for the phone.
Music enthusiast. DON'T GET YOUR HOPES UP. it has it and that's it.
Sports enthusiasts, read travelers. (not so smart people, don't keep doubling back).
You might ask yourself after this review why am i giving it a 2, well because overall I am disappointed with the companies that work with the phone. They could have done so much with the phone, but they really left the phone short. maybe if they would hear us reviewers out and make some more games for the gamer's, and apps for the people that need them I would have gave it a 3. Till then No 3 for you.
Pros It's pretty.
Cons 1.The power/lock button annoys because it doesn't stay unlocked very long...maybe 5 seconds and then it locks back up. 2.When typing numbers in a field,you have to scroll through a list of characters before you get to the numbers,which are last.
Summary I'm enjoying learning my phone (my first smart phone), except for the terrible coverage I get. I want to exchange it for either another phone of the same model, or a different phone entirely.
