I've had mine for only four days so these observations are by no means comprehensive and may actually have work-arounds I'm not aware of:
1. Rough App Drawer
The app drawer is arranged alphabetically and there seems to be no option to rearrange it any other way. There is also no option to make folders within the app drawer - folders can only be made in the homescreens. Also, the app drawer is divided into three sections: apps, downloaded apps, and widgets, which you could quickly access by pressing their names on the top of the app drawer. Pretty standard fare, except for the fact that these sections aren't exactly separate. Meaning, scrolling past the last page of the 'Apps' section brings you to the 'Downloaded Apps' section, more scrolling will bring you to the 'Widgets' section, and even more scrolling will bring you back to the 'Apps' section. It isn't exactly bad, but it can be confusing at first.
2. Manual Autocorrect
The phone has two built-in keyboards: the regular Android keyboard and the proprietary TouchPal keyboard. Between the two, I ended up preferring the latter because it just had more features. For example, it allows you to choose among five keyboard sizes (smallest, small, medium, large, and huge), which I think is very convenient since this is a large phone. It also has a one-handed layout, which I didn't see in the stock Android keyboard. TouchPal was also very easy to personalize with downloadable skins. What I do have a problem with is the text prediction system. Unlike in most other phones I've used that learn your words silently in the background, this phone requires you to manually save a word it doesn't recognize so that it is added to your personal dictionary. For example if 'apple' were a word it didn't recognize, you would need to press it once so that it wouldn't be autocorrected; the phone then tells you to 'touch to save' requiring you to press the word a second time for the phone to learn it. I really wish they'd fix this in an update, or if somebody out there knows a way around this, please share.
3. Unremovable Widget
The phone comes with five homescreens, and although I haven't tried really hard, I think there's no way to add or remove any. Not a major issue in my opinion since I could get by on three homescreens and usually leave the other two blank. This phone, however, comes with its first or leftmost homescreen totally covered by a photo widget. The stock picture shown is a flower and tapping on it once will prompt you to long tap to choose pictures or albums to show, and true enough long tapping does bring you to a menu for just that. Wait, what was long tapping conventionally used for? Oh right, selecting things. See the problem? This widget, whether you like it or not, cannot be removed. It isn't supposed to be a major problem since it's in the leftmost homescreen and you won't be seeing a lot of it anyway, but it can get annoying at times. Kind of like if someone had put a moustache on the Mona Lisa, all you'd see is the moustache and forget all about the beauty of the rest of the painting.
Despite all that though, I still think the Pop C9 is a good phone. The observations I made above weren't really that horrible and you might be able to live with them, and keep in mind that I've only owned this phone for a short while. So if there's anyone out there who might be able to solve any of the problems above, please do share your solutions with us. Cheers!
just got mine from sun cellular. i have the bluish black color and i love it.
Anonymous, 28 Jun 2014How long does it take for your mobile to empty its battery? from 100% battery to 0? mine is on... moreMy battery lasted for more than a day and can last for 2 days with moderate use.
tell me if ill gonna buy this kind of phone or,i didnt really try this one so far,
Hi I from the Philippines by sept I will renew my SUN postpaid plan, Is this a good upgrade unit to choose or not?
Wow! a lot of suncel subscribers here.
Had mine for a few days ago, so far so good.
The specs are what you just get, so do not expect too much of it. And the only color available was the white variant.
The package comes with flip-case and a screen protector.
I do not know if this is downside for the others, but the battery is non-removable, but given its 2500mAh, so it packs some juice and can last a day with moderate use.
I tried having it connected to the internet via wifi and in half-a-day it used up almost 50% of it.
Will still try to play with it, and hopefully share some additional user experiences in the next few days.
Is the main camera good? How about the front camera is the 2 mp Really good for Skype? Does the speaker really bad?
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2014How to restart it when it hangs? Thank you!Hey,
Just hold down the lighting button for 10 or 20 seconds and it will turn off.
The disadvantage of C9 as below:
-The speaker not too loud (very bad)
-No home button (if the power button dead)
-LED notification only one color (white)
To those who own One Touch Pop C9, may I ask if it has this kind of settings "settings > display > unlock weather effects"?
