So far so good. Purchased from MetroPCS and it is SIM locked, but can be unlocked. Decent memory for my tastes. I like the stylus and the ability to write a note, as that helps me remeber stuff. The sound quality as a phone is superb and people tell me they can hear me better.
The buttons on the back are a big adjustment. The new OS is a bit of a learning curve coming from Key Lime Pie to Marshmallow.
I purchased the phone today and am still getting used to it. Had a Samsung Galaxy note 4 prior and don't need all the bells and whistles. My complaints are the ringer and media volumes are rather low and I don't see an icon for internet but did instlll Firefox and it seems to work.
Seems OK for a budget phone...have concerns about its VR capabilities.
Anyone have any success with this yet?
[deleted post]What's more frustrating is that people who think only thier personal wants matter and that everyone else's needs are inherently less important. Gosh, I'm sorry your highness.
For the record, I came here specifically for the answer to the question of whether Pokemon Go worked and/or worked well on this specific phone. Understand that there are other people who are also allowed to use this interwebs thingy.
Anonymous, 21 Jul 2016Does this phone work ar with pokemon go with cricket no it doesnt
Cricket Wireless version is sligthly different that Boost/Virgin ones:
Network frequency LTE Bands 2/4/5/12; WCDMA 850/1900/2100 MHz; GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
Purchase. Good phone for cheap. Not high end gaming recommended but otherwise smooth and with significantly less problems than the heinous stylo 1
[deleted post]You're correct. Some (many) people just don't grow up. Immature all their lives.

The cricket version is a little bit higher end than the boost version, so one may have something, such as the gyroscope which is needed for AR mode, while the other does not.
Hannah, 17 Jul 2016So can i or can i not play pokemon go on this device ? 😕😕Yes, but you might have to turn the AR off at times.
Lookingforphone, 15 Jul 2016Does Pokemon Go not work at all?Pokemon go will work, but AR will not. So you can play, but you won't be able to see the pokemon on the "real world" background, just an animated scene.
AnonD-561854, 18 Jul 2016If you're fine playing without AR then it runs perfectly fine. Personally I don't think there'... moreAR really doesn't work for most people. I've had it "on" but I don't have the orientation sensor on my current phone so I have to turn it off whenever I log in, or it won't show a pokemon.

Looks like this is the phone I'm getting. Thanks again.
AnonD-561856, 18 Jul 2016Main question I have. Even if this phone will not work in AR mode for Pokémon Go, will ... moreIf you're fine playing without AR then it runs perfectly fine. Personally I don't think there's any point in playing without it that's why I'm trying to find if it really doesn't work or if people aren't realizing they have to turn it on...
Apparently it works even faster without AR mode.
Long story short is yes for you it was be perfect
