Good at first, but slow as anything after a while.

This was my first phone, and when I got it two years ago, it was fast, fun, and perfect. It wasn't long, however, before I realized that the battery was horrible, only holding a full charge for a maximum of 45 min. in standby. Slowly but surely, the phone itself began to run more slowly, and I--a teenage blogger fanatic--was left with a phone that would die after three hours on Instagram and Tumblr. The crowning blow to the phone came about a year ago, halfway through my contract with Sprint: the phone fried itself. No damage came to the battery, and the technicians couldn't find any evidence of corrosion, but the phone fried itself. It was replaced with an identical model, but the damage had been done. I don't recommend this phone if you have more than a one-year contract.

Build quality 8/10 It was a perfect size for my hands and fit well in my pocket even with a case, which was a must. I must have dropped it five hundred times, yet it never cracked (again, thanks to a good case) and you couldn't see dents or scratches, either.
Reception 1/10 Sprint has very bad reception where I live.
Call quality 5/10 When calling landlines, the connection was much better than when calling mobile phones.
Internet 4/10 Slow, didn't close tabs well. Tabs would stay open for months after I thought they were closed.
Multimedia 4/10 Depending on what you were using, it could either be incredibly fast or incredibly slow, but it was mostly slow.
Camera 6/10 Good enough, but definitely could be better.
UI speed 3/10 Doesn't always respond to touch as quickly as it should, screen sometimes is not calibrated well
Everyday usage 5/10 Some days it worked better than others.
Text input 7/10 You can't view emoji or anything without an app.
Display 9/10 Perfect size for me, good coloring
Battery 3/10 Battery dies quickly when data/wifi is enabled, stays put on airplane mode or with data disabled
