Pros The MP3 player is a nice feature & the speaker is average.
Cons This phone constantly locks up! The caller ID does not always work! Scroll wheel is very sensitive.
Summary I would definitley pick anotrher phone! I have had MANY sprint phones and this is by far the WORST one!This phone constantly locks up! I have to constantly take the battery out in order to un-freeze the phone. There are times when my calls will not come through and sometimes when they do the caller ID will not appear; its just a ringtone playing and my main screen so I ahve no idea who is calling. Because of the way the menu is set up when i go to msg's I am accidentally calling my voicemail ALL THE TIME.
Pros Pretty color?
Cons - Majorbutt dialer
- Software errors continuously
- When you have it on hold, sometimes it will let you answer, sometimes it won't. Every now and ten it goes into lock down and you can't do anything. It just stops responding.
Summary Pile of refuse. Avoid at all costs. We have two of them and I'm tempted to step on mine just so I can force myself to get something that does not suck so bad.
Pros The speaker is actually pretty good, despite some of the negative views that its all hype. The One Touch user friendly system by Sprint is also really easy to operate. The texting part is suitable for the always texting teenager.
Cons So far nothing major has come up with the High Note. Sometimes the revolving wheel can be a little sensitive but nothing major. Also the camera isn't very good so don't get it if you take tons of pictures.
Summary Compared to my old phone,Sanyo M1, the High Note is really awesome. The texting portion is really good with the cool AIM format that pops up when you get a message. The music capability is also amazing with the speaker. It handles almost all music well. The One Touch system by Sprint also is exemplary since it's easy to use. The pros, I think, rule over the cons so i suggest you buy the phone if your into music.
Pros Great battery life
Cons Pretty much everything about the phone
Summary I've had this phone for almost two years, two more months and will have been the full two years. I regret this phone choice almost 100%. Although this phone has it's pros, the con list is longer. I must say that this phone handles abuse very well. I've dropped it atleast a million times and it still works. It was dropped in the toilet and continued to work until the battery had died. The phone is my second phone and although I like it better than the Rumor, the first version, I'm ready to be rid of this phone. I'm constantly having issues with it. Sprint, you did yourself a favor discontinuing this piece of crap. If for any reason you're wanting a used one, do not get it. I can garentee that you will hate the phone within 6 months, even if it was brand new.
Pros sprint music store, great sound from the little slide out speakers, slide out keyboard, nice menu interface; excellent battery life
Cons the carousel is a little weird. The technology is antiquated now. Good for basic phone use and music only. camera is poor.
Summary I got this phone over two years ago because of its music capabilities. I had a basic samsung flip phone for years and wanted to upgrade to a "music phone." You can download songs from the Spring music store which is very extensive (even a lot of old obscure songs can be found). The little slide out speakers will fool you! They are loud and powerful! They don't pick up bass very well but this is a tiiny phone after all so its not a huge surprise. Other than that, the sound is very good and I have enjoyed that. Some other pluses: As a basic phone, it is excellent. Call quality is generally good. I can hear people well and they can hear me well too. Yes, I do have some dropped calls but that is Sprint's fault. I originally bought this phone in a major city where the Sprint signal is strong. Now I live in a small town thirty minutes south of there, and the Sprint signal is just "good," meaning you can get a good signal outside or in your car but in some buildings and houses you will get no signal or a weak one (this is per Sprint themselves). The batter is the other strong point. It lasts forever. I would say I typically get two to three days with moderate use.
Cons: the carrousel is just weird. You can use the carousel like a directiona pad (i.e. press left for left, right for right, and so forth) and that is actually better than spinning it like in the video here. For a long time I hated the carousel, but I have had the phone for so long I've gotten used to it. Although you can use the phone for e-mail and internet I just wouldn't because the screen is clear but tiny. The websites come up in a peculiar format and it isn't user friendly. I can count on one hand how many times I've used the browser. Now that I use other things for my music these days, I don't even bother with the $15 data plan anymore. Its a waste of money. Oh, and the camera is very poor too.
Spring doesn't sell this phone anymore, but I saw on some websites you can buy it unlocked or used. I find that kind of amusing. Technology has changed and improved so much, I don't know why anyone would bother with it unless it was a great deal or something (I'll admit that as a BASIC phone with music capabilities, it might have an audience... maybe as a cheap prepaid phone?). I have been biding my time and I finally qualify for a big upgrade with Sprint next month. I am excited about getting my first smartphone.
