"Not too big, not too small, just right"4.5 starson by NewbTelecom2013zz
Pros: I got it mainly because of the QWERTY, but there is enough space between the touch screen keys that I almost don't even need it. Setting data usage alerts is helpful, as is the auto interface with my home wi-fi to limit data usage.
Cons: Occasionally deactivates Navigation app if you switch from vertical to horizontal view after you've input an address but before it has loaded.
Summary: This is definitely the phone to have if someone is more comfortable with a QWERTY. The screen size is just right. Since I wear my cell phone on my belt, I can't imagine having one much bigger than this. Facial recognition is a nice feature for unlocking the phone even though it is not as secure as the PIN back-up option. It quickly transitions to different apps. The data usage also shows how much different data apps use. Since I'm no longer on an unlimited data plan, keeping tabs on data usage has been a concern. Between being able to automatically switching on the wi-fi when I'm home, to setting an alarm when I reach a certain level of data usage, I'm not that concerned that I will go over on my data. At the same time, I try to download new apps when I'm connected to my home wi-fi since this usually takes up more data. The memory storage is also a concern. I maxed out the storage on my old Droid very quickly. I constantly had to uninstall apps in order to download new ones. The Strat II has a display that shows how much data each app takes up compared to how much memory is left. Overall, this is a solid phone that I will definitely recommend to others.
