I got this phone for free with a new contract for my talk/text plan. I've had this phone for almost a year. I'm not crazy about it. The first thing I noticed was that the batter life is terrible compared to my previous Samsung phone. I really don't use my phone that much, so I don't like having to charge it every other day. My Samsung lasted 7-9 days based on similar usage. The volume control on the side of the phone became very hard to use very quickly, but after the phone was out of warranty. I tried using a data plan with it for a few days, it was so slow and awful, I turned the data right back off. I would NOT recommend this phone for internet use. The sound quality is fine, the keyboard is very nice. And I do enjoy using the phone as an mp3 occasionally. The music sounds very good, and any small-jack headphones will work with it. I will go back to Samsung next time, however. I still prefer Samsung overall, even though they require a special connection for headphones.

The phone is good for call quality and texting. It is at least fairly durable as I have dropped it a few times without anything breaking. The big annoyance is that it unlocks itself somewhat easily (if you accidentally slide out the keyboard or hit the top button) and I have pocket dialed people even after locking the phone. Additionally, you cannot move pictures from the phone by USB cable, rendering the camera largely useless. I did not get it for the camera, but the unlocking thing is the big flaw for me.

It's a decent phone for basic use, I've had it for several months now. There are some annoying problems though:
-The keys are too sensitive when texting and I get extra letters all the time. Words end up kkinddd of likke thiss. Always.
-The fact that the keypad is a touch screen means that when you call 800 numbers and have to press 1, press 2, etc. you have to "wake it up" and press "show dialpad" every time you press a number, and occasionally I'll accidentally press the wrong number which can be a minor annoyance. One downfall of the convenience of touch screen.
-The layout isn't as simple as phones of this type I've had in the past, I'm still figuring it out.

Maybe I'm just technologically inept. Oh well.

I got this phone maybe a year ago. And I've already lost touch in the screen. I've only dropped it 4 times at the most. No cracks. But it's been fine everytime then one day I completely lost touch.

I love this phone. It works great for me. The only problem would be how fat it is with the case on.

I am due for an upgrade and I am considering this phone. I had a bad experience once with a Samsung Touchscreen from Verizon, so I am so/so about getting a touchscreen phone with qwerty keyboard again. I currently have the LG Neon 2 and I absolutely loved it and had really no major complaint about it. Any advice will he helpful! Thanks in advanced! =)
