    This is the best Metro PCS phone out there. It has a very large Amoled screen, colors are so vibrant it totally blew my mind. It has fast download at 4G speed at locations that provide 4G speed (at my office no less). Touch is very responsive, although sometimes a bit too sensitive which caused me to text to wrong person lol. The camera quality is very good; even the front cam, with 3x zoom and flash. I don’t bring my pocket camera out anymore after I have this baby. The battery life after I installed battery saver app it lasted longer and as expected with all smart phones. This is the best prepaid android phone out there and I am still in love with it after 3 months of usage.

    I got this phone at a metro store in November and I am so happy with it. I will run down the pros and cons for you guys:

    Pros:
    Nice camera.
    Camera flash!
    4G LTE. Super fast data speeds.
    Very large screen. Even though I am 6’4″, I wouldn’t want the screen to be any larger because then I would need two hands to press buttons in the corners (lol).

    Cons:
    Currently there is no root for the recent ZVC update (which fixes some peoples random rebooting), and currently no ROMs, however this will change very VERY soon since a working CWM (clockwork mod) has been built for it.
    Without the ZVC update, you may get random reboots. I, however, have only had it happen twice in two months.
    My music playlists randomly disappear. May be fixed with cm7 or ICS custom ROMs when they appear within the first 2-3 weeks of 2012.

    Overall I really love this camera and when it’s rooted and all the MetroPCS bloatware is removed and it’s overclocked (it can run at 1.7 GHz stable isntead of the stock 1 GHz speed) it’s extremely powerful and snappy. My battery lasts about 16 hours of medium usage before it needs to be charged again with the stock battery, but you can always buy the extended battery.

    I’m surprised to see so many negative reviews for this phone. After reading a couple of them it seems like a lot of people are coming from or going to Verizon. Truth is this phone and service isn’t as good as Verizons, but considering it’s less the half the price you would pay at verizon, it’s really good. I had a T-mobile mytouch 4G which I lost and got this phone as a replace ment. This phone kicks the mytouches a*s!! I paid like $500 for the mytouch because I wanted to put simple mobile service on it. Well, I guess it was the $40 dollar a month simple mobile service but my mytouch was super slow, youtube was a joke and too frustrating to even bother with. The camera and video worked pretty good, but this phones camera and video work just as good. Plus youtube using the $50 dollar a month plan with MetroPCS is FLAWLESS. In fact it works better then my home wifi connection, when i watch videos on my phone at home using my wifi connection it might stop and pause some, but still pretty good. It’s nice and loud, picture resolution is super clear. The phone hasn’t frozen on me yet but I did get a black screen of doom today 🙁 I hope my cute phone doesn’t make that a habit, but so far that’s the only real complaint I have.

    So if your comparing this phone and service to Verizon then yeah, you’re bound to be disappointed. I’m coming from T-mobile/simple mobile and I’m impressed 🙂
    Great phone at $50 dollars a month (plus $5 insurance since im a clutz). If you need an awesome phone for videos, music, photo’s, calling, try this one. Anything more then that, get ready to shell out at LEAST $120 a month with verizon. That’s way too much for me, so i’ll stick with the LG Esteem!
