"only an "ok" starter smartphone."1.5 starson by jdsommer
Pros: i *love* the tethering capacity. it's an android phone on the cheap. it's small & slim & light.
Cons: constantly convinced the SD card has been removed. restarts itself randomly. has overheated & bricked multiple times. nowhere near enough enough memory for apps. frequently pocket-dials 911.
Summary: if you don't want a lot of apps, and don't foresee heavy usage of the phone, it's fine for entry-level to the world of android. if you're wanting even moderate usage out of your smartphone, find something else.
