"So useful sometimes I forget it's my phone."4.5 starson by J-Dyzzle
Pros: Beautiful big screen, front and rear cameras. Runs android.
Cons: Price. Poor voice command recognition. Confusing music player. Kinda big.
Summary: I may be the only one out there who doesn't want an iphone. But if you are techy like me, you will appreciate the openness of android. As a college student, my life is on my phone (and I'm not just talking social, all the homework is online now). So having a big screen that I can read PDFs and open Google docs with is fantastic. The size could be a major turn off for some people, but I think the pros majorly outweigh the cons. I upgraded from a Motorola Cliq XT and all of Motorola's false promises of software upgrades. I'm never going back. Starting off it was a little bit complicated, because it didn't particularly love my old micro SD card, but once I had time to sit down and reformat it it has since all worked beautifully. Call quality has been as good, if not better, than any of my previous phones. Great apps and widgets. Sticky notes and agendas really help me out, not to mention a proper google search bar on my home screen. The price at the moment is a bit of a killer, but I got it at Costco and got a pretty good deal on it. I've had it for a few months now and love it, even though the name of the cellphone game is that the moment you buy it it's outdated. The wifi calling capabilities are also handy. It can switch over for when your signal isn't that great (say at the dorm) and use the wifi. Though the 4g is a plus.
