Pros An android phone at $55.00 a month even. No data caps and it does what they say it does. Emails, Pandora, You tube etc. all works flawlessly. Battery life isn't bad but neither good. Feels durable and the display is easily seen.
Cons The operating system is older (1.2 Donut), there should be an upgrade by Christmas (Version TBD). The on screen keyboard isn't the greatest but theres an app for that.
Summary In comparison to an Iphone etc. The iphone will be a bit quicker but given crickets plan and the fact it does its job. You cannot beat this phone and carrier for the price. I've used it in multiple states no problems. Its 50% off in comparison to others carriers. In the end they are all made by qualcomm. Save some money and get the job done or pay a little more out of habit. Choice is yours!
Pros Light, good construction, like google features like maps, gps, and it's pretty quick downloading.
Cons The touch screen functionality is not that great, its not very responsive and you can't set the sensivity to compensate. Unable to setup email on yahoo, or work email. Android 1.6, only 3 homescreens, touch home-button is unresponsive at times.
Summary I really don't like the phone other than for its phone features. The battery isn't that great, but what smart phone battery is. My real gripe was the touch screen and the fact I was unable to setup any type of email account aside from gmail which is packed with it. The android market isn't very streamlined either. I'm not trying to bash this phone, but for the price I bought it for ($250) I was really expecting more. I suspect all the issues I'm having with it are because of the Android 1.6 firmware. I was hoping to wait for the update, but no one, not Sanyo/Kyocera or Cricket can tell me when its going to come out. I love Cricket as a whole, but you get what you pay for when it comes to customer service and what the expectations of the phones are. I'm giving up on this phone and going to buy the new Huawei Ascend. I would rate it lower, but I don't because after all, it is a phone and I use it for texting most of the time anyway. Those things are what it does best, so it's not a total loss.
"Does it all."on by cdysthe
Pros Android powered. Ideal size (not a brick). Works quite well. Call and speaker quality above expected.
Cons Could have had a speedier CPU and a bit more memory. Flimsy plastic covers for charger and head phones.
Summary This is a nicely designed phone doing it all and more! The price is more than right. I'm going to enjoy this phone for at least a year. This is all I need/want right now.
"Love this Phone!"on by Raggmoppmr
Pros This phone does it all. Was well worth the wait. It's a phone, mini computer, GPS, and toy all rolled into one.
Very easy to use, great sound quality and priced lower than I expected. Thanks Cricket, finally!
Cons Wish I could take the lock off the screen. Have to unlock it every time you turn it on or use it. That's my only complaint.
Summary Navigaton is great, no need for a GPS. Sound quality is excellent. Internet is instant. It's my first Android phone and I won't go back to the old types. I've had Cricket for 10 years and have no problems. Love the Nationwide coverage too. My phone worked from Tennessee to Texas with no problems. Buy it, you'll like it. I've always had good luck with Kyocera phones and this one tops all the rest.
Pros I have been a faithful Cricket Costumer for 4 years & this phone by far is the best. The app store is amazing. All the apps that I downloaded work perfectly. I love how big the screen is. I think I wont be buying a new phone anytime soon. Love my Zio
Cons First the battery I have to say sucks.. I mean I charge my phone 3 times a day and I used to be able to go a whole day with out charging my phone. The straight forward keyboard its hard to type on it. Last is the number of display screen need 2 more
Summary I love this phone compared to all my other phones I had over the years. There will always be features about a phone that people dislike.. but overall for a cricket phone and its plan its a great investment...
