Pros 1. I know - just $50 per all services , 4G Internet include.
2. Perfect Internet speed.
3. Small enough for my packets.
Cons 1.low buttery life. But I bought extra battery.
Summary Best phone. My advise for customers in NY.
Pros Forward and rear facing camera with camera button on side, flash, works on 4G network, able to use it on Metro PCS unlimited plan.
Cons Stock Music Player usless when playing from playlist(huge lag/freezing).
Phone doesn't send musics ID3 tag info over bluetooth.
Camera doesn't have zoom(Even by software).
Has huge lag when connected with bluetooth rendering phone almost useless.
Summary Bluetooth does not seem to be AVRCP 1.3+ compatable. At least it's stock music player does not transmit such data as track title and artist when playing over Blueooth to a head unit capable of displaying metadata(most current android phones as well as IOS have no problem transmitting this data over bluetooth). Using the stock Music Player I created a custom playlist of ~100 songs. When switching songs from this playlist there is at least a 10 second lag. Connect to a compatable stereo over bluetooth and this lag at least doubles and often renders the phone useless until a hard restart is performed(had to pull the battery on multiple occasions). When I pay $239 for a phone I would at least expect it to be capable of properly playing music over bluetooth. I found that PowerAmp music player does not have this lag. When answering a call over bluetooth I have had the stock music player start playing music over a phone call answered on bluetooth. The phones screen turned green and had I to pull the battery again to reset. Bandwidth on Metro's 4G network has averaged 3078kbps on downloads and 1945 on uploads pretty slow when compared to other 4G networks. Androids browser seems really slow like dialup days. I switched to using Dolphin HD as my web browser which is still snail speed on this phone. WiFi tethering is crippled on this phone. I could only accses YouTube and facebook using tether. Google maps is a great navigation tool however when I'm driving it will cause the phone to hang unless I first disable bluetooth.
Battery life is disapointing. I do not use my phone at work but the battery is often dead after nine hours between a charge. Battery life was about half that when I first bought the phone. On a couple occasions I wiped the phone clean to see if that would fix the issues I have with the crippled wi-fi tether and stock music player using created playlist but that didn't help at all. Also, tried 2 other micro SD cards but didn't fix the lag issue with the stock music player. I have liked Samsung products in the past but I feel short changed on this product.
