"its not that bad"on by mcdee1500
Pros it worth 80 dollars works better than my tmobile mytouch 3g. the battery is not the greatest. Using with google navigator worked fine, i have no problems texting I can do this all with one hand. Browser worked fine so did my rhapsody.
Cons battery life is short. Screen is small but sometime small foot print is good.
Summary I have even loaded angry birds with this, i also have no problems streaming music with my rhapsody.Metro PCS service is getting alot better. I don't think cnet even tried this phone they just used notes from tmobile comment, My phone has worked great.t-mobile comet I meant.

Pros NOTHING! There is not one thing good about this phone!
Cons Battery life WAY to short, apps WAY too slow, getting online as well WAY too slow!!! Touch pad ALWAYS puts what you did not touch, for example I touch m it says y. Service is awful, downloaded songs did not fully download wasted money. Phone too smal
Summary All in all this phone is pure crap! Nothing works right at all! Not worth 80 bucks at all! Metro PCS has awful service and worse customer service. DO NOT buy this phone!!
"Perfect for Me"on by oshyyy0517
Pros The swype texting, the 2.2 froyo, its small compactness, touch sensitive buttons so no button damages, end key and the pick-up key, android, android marketing for apps, is a perfect price @ only $79, and enables bluetooth, mms,im, email, internet browser,
Cons short battery life.
Summary This phone is absolultely amazing in my point of veiw and exceded my excpectations. I have small fingers so the small screen is noo problem and is actually veryy compact. The short battery life is no problem because i text more than i talk and most of my day i am in school so i dont talk anyways. To make a long story short this phone is an awesome choice if you are buying and android phone.

Pros Contrary to popular belief, Metro PCS DOES have 3G service, it's just limited, but has been expanding recently. I rooted mine and have been able to get the processor to run at 650 mhz and got rid of the bloatware, so it runs faster than normal.
Cons SLOW! If you root it, it runs faster, but you run the risk of ruining the phone (like that's really possible). The Metro bloatware takes up half of what little memory is on the device(it only registers 167 mb), not much space for apps. TINY screen.
Summary If you like the Ascend, you'll like the M835 except for the screen.
