Simply the worst model phone I have ever owned
tooqewt has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
I have owned this phone from 11-19-2013, well not the one I'm currently holding because the one I'm holding is phone #5 of the very same make and model, from the same provider. I have had multiple issues with this phone. The phone has issues downloading apps, reading the sd card, and every one of them overheats just reading the sd card, which I suppose is to be expected when it takes 10min to 2 hours to read the tiny 4gig card. I have had to master reset every phone. I have had to format the BRAND NEW SD CARD 5 times now. I have had to deal with a phone that. with full signal and 4g service, still decides it's not going to connect or download a thing. The one and only ALMOST functioning model of the phone that I received had a camera defect and had to be returned....I mean c'mon folks, you don't go to a restaurant and pay for a 3 course meal to get water and an appetizer. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS PHONE!!! It's built tough, but the rest of it just bites the big one.Build quality 8/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 2/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 3/10UI speed 2/10Everyday usage 2/10Text input 2/10Display 7/10Battery 2/10

Great communication device.

The best phone for its price; the reception is great, the screen brightness is super nice, the battery last a very long time. Another great feature its is size; not bulky but just the right dimensions make it looks very professional. Comparing this phone to my previous one is just unfair as this one surpass all my expectations.Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10

To many buttons or selections have to be made to optain goal. To many defaults that I would like to change but cannot. Causing issues with network voicemail. This issue was suppose to be addressed with new update but it was not.Build quality 8/10Reception 8/10Call quality 5/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 8/10Camera 6/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 6/10Text input 4/10Display 6/10Battery 10/10
- Call quality, poor spkrs
- Camera, could be better
- Everday usage, to many selections to reach goal
- Text Input not as good as some other phones.
- Display isn't good outdoors

BEST CELL FOR THE MONEY NOW on VIRGIN
JMMBB has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I just picked one of these up to see what its made of and Honestly it should cost $250 and is as good in Hardware as the Samsung Galaxy S2 and Victory easily. Actually it runs circles around the Samsung S3 MINI @ $249 but its not unlocked (Big advantage there). I agree with user below.
It also specs in most areas just like the Iphone 4S too but you get more features and PRICE LOL!!!!!!!
OK so you get a great performer with Huge battery and lots of good features just like Samsung Touchwiz but I don't really like the White Interface in Settings (BIG Deal). ONLY bad is small user rom of 1.2gig.
Has a stronger black level than my Nexus 4 but I miss the Auto Brightness. But thats it so far. Buy it!!
Using Performance Benchmarks lets you see EXACTLY where these cells fit in the power and performance range. You can download the Passmark Test from Google Play yourself and run several for an average but make sure all open Apps are closed and reboot once. Then about 15 to 100 people submit these Benchmarks for every phone around and the guys Average them out so they are right on. Individual tests for CPU, Disk and Memory writes, with 2D & 3D Video comprise the OVERALL Passmark System Performance.
PASSMARK SYSTEM PERFORMANCE is as follows:
LG Optimus V @ 537
Old HTC One V @ 1100
Samsung Reverb/Ring @ 1324 (identical internals)
Samsung Victory (SPH-L300) @ 1608
LG Optimus F3 (LS720) @ 1784
Samsung Galaxy S2 (SPH-D710) @ 1788

do not believe the low scores
unnamedny has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
I've watched and read quite a few reviews of this phone. For some reason there is not too much good things said about this phone. Reviewers act like they paid $500 for it and trying to compare it high end phones. It's a $150 phone and there is absolutely no way it can compete with high end phones. So I think ratings are unjustified.
-It has great sharp screen, 233ppi, great colors. Not the best but really good.
-Phone runs smooth its due to 1 gig of ram and decent cpu. No crashes, no apps shutting on it's own.
-2400mah battery is made to last a day. Even in heavy uses like 5 hours of screen on time it will have some charge left. I'm not mentioning talk time because you will get plenty.
-proportionally small. It fits well in hand, I can use one hand to navigate through the entire phone, it's very thin.
-decent quality speaker, loud.
-good reception in most places.
-Ok camera that does not blow you away but gets the job done.
-Very easy to root if you are into it.
-good build quaquality, it feels really light but not cheap.
-It's one con is lack of space, after a few apps installed I only have about 700mb left, It's not a big con for me but might be a big con for others, so keep it in mind. If you root the phone you can use Link2SD to recover some space.Build quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 9/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 8/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 8/10Display 9/10Battery 10/10
