"Don't buy it."on by PabcBabc
Pros There is no pro.
Cons There is nothing right with this phone. Every feature is a con, as is T-mobile a con.
Summary Interesting how some people have phones they are happy with and the rest of us got the duds that can't hold a battery charge. There is obviously a problem with some of the Huawei Comet phones and T-mobile is not interested in doing the right thing and replacing them. Blame the customer. I wonder if anyone from T-mobile reads the reviews? I had my phone for four months when I noticed it wasn't holding a charge. I kept replacing the battery and still it wouldn't hold a charge. I was still learning how to use the phone and had not used very many of my 1150 minutes. When I sent my phone in for repairs, per their instructions, to 4500 Campbell Road in Fort Worth. They kept the phone for two months, and sent me back someone else's dud Huawei Comet that doesn't hold a charge. (I know it was a different phone because I wrote my IEM no. down before I sent it them. I had a funny feeling there would be more trouble.) When they returned "a" phone to me, it came with instructions for me to send my phone to some guy in Indiana, and there was a prepaid label with this guy's name and address in Indiana. Don't know if he got my phone????? It was like a chain letter scheme for broken Huawei Comets--you send your broken phone to someone, and they send their broken phone to someone, just keep swapping them out and moving them around, and no one will notice what is going on. Had my phone (or poor George from Indiana's phone) for a few months, still not using it much, it's still not holding a charge longer than 12 hours, when all of a sudden...... a computerized voice breaks into my phone telling me I have no more minutes. UNBELIEVABLE!!!! OF ALL THINGS, THEY STOLE MY PREPAID MINUTES. T-mobile sucks. This Huawei Comet sucks. The fact that they outsource their customer service department sucks. Way to run a business T-mobile. Occupy T-mobile.
Pros Inexpensive prepaid Android Froyo phone, decent call quality, Runs most apps just fine, is surprisingly stable. My battery life is fine because I rarely use mobile data, mostly just wifi. Very pocketable. Integration with google services.
Cons Small low res screen, slow processor, no Flash. So-so construction. Poor music volume through earbuds.
Summary I got this last year when it was just released by t-mobile with their pay as you go plan. I wanted an Android device/phone, but don't need a data plan, and contractual monthly plans w/data are money out the window for me due to my nearly constant access to wifi.
This phone fit the bill, and gets the job done even though it lags behind nearly every other Android phone out there in terms of performance, screen, etc. Since I bought this, the prepaid Android market has filled with more worthy options that are probably a better choice (Samsung, LG, etc.) than this phone now.
I appreciate t-mobile's pay as you go system: $100 gets you 1000 minutes/messages with the option to buy an unlimited data day-pass for $1.50 when I'm on the road (mobile data eats the Comet's battery, but at least web-browsing, streaming, and gps work well). The bonus here is that those minutes don't expire for a whole year. For light usage like mine, this is almost like cheating the system: $250 got me a versatile device/phone and a year's worth of service (yeah, I really don't text or talk much). Given that the traditional service + phone can cost north of a grand each year, I'm pretty happy that this route is available. Plus the money saved means I don't feel so bad about dropping a few hundred bucks to upgrade to a much better phone when it eventually strikes my fancy.
Pros NONE NONE NONE have 3 all SUCKS.
Cons We have three and it 4 month later not one of them work. They don't charge, No battery life, Icon disappeared of screen. DON"T GET THIS PHONE. Tmobile has done nothing to replace the phone we had to buy new phones .I wish we would not have signed the cont
Summary DON"T GET THIS PHONE. IT SHOULD BE RECALLED.
Pros Inexpensive. Runs all the apps I need. I've had no problems with wifi, bluetooth, GPS, etc.
Cons Slow. Tiny screen. No multi-touch gestures. My phone was packaged with the WRONG CABLE (mini-usb instead of micro-usb). You get what you pay for.
Summary I've been a T-Mobile prepaid customer for a while now. I have the $30/month plan that gives you 1500 minutes or texts, and 30MB a month data usage. If I run out of data and can't find a wifi signal, I can buy 24 hours of unlimited 3G usage for $1.50. I picked up this phone because it was the least expensive Android phone I could find without a contract. ($150 at Best Buy back in February or March 2011). All I had to do was pop my SIM card from my prior phone in and I was good to go.
I have had no difficulties with any app I tried, except that a few run sluggishly. I prefer the Dolphin Browser Mini to the standard web browser. No problems pairing bluetooth devices. GPS works well.
Pros Android 2.2
Fits in pocket nicely
Cons Screen is a bit small
slow at times
Summary I think this is a nice android phone.it is slow at times but for a phone you cant have everything. But for me its fine.
