in phone mode and voice mail and when you enter password key after every 3 key stroke display would go off and on, at times it would prompt invalid password.
Summary: overall pricey for 350$ and $60 4g lte monthly plan. average phone does 4g lte. read samsung attain, lg esteem is even worse so had to settle here. Wish metro sold Apple iphone 4s :/i came across android forum:

where to save battery there is an app for that called juice defender you can download it from play appstore -> search for juice defender free version or paid version and download and give it a try. it disable the data connection when the phone is not in use and as a result saves a lot on the battery juice.
Updated on Mar 25, 2012in my earlier email i had mentioned that there is now to check for apps; i stand corrected in app store when you hit menu click -> my apps -> if any are to be updated you can click them then one by one or all at once. to save on battery, i had set the auto updates to disabled so it was not showing up. and yest juice defender definitely saves a lot on battery.
Updated on Mar 25, 2012in cons i had mentioned about display going off when making phone and while using dial pad, (it no longer a cons but rather a design fault of android device). i figured this out through droid forum; as i am a left handed and was holding the device a certain way; i was sort of blocking the sensor located at the top left corner of the device. once i changed the way i held the phone, things word as expected; given the work around i've used since getting the phone a week ago i certainly would like to up the rating to 4 stars as its having the same problems as most of the devices in the market place for android devices today.
