I do not like this phone!

I've had this phone for 1 year as of Oct of 2013...I liked it at first. I thought it was cool because it was my first smart phone. Now that I've had it for a while, I hate it all down to the way it looks. It's always freezing up, it has very little storage, you can't switch apps from your phone to your SD Card or vice versa, it freezes up all the time and I have to shut it off. No one can hear me while I'm on the phone with them. They say I sound "muffled". I'm not a picky person and if my phone just did what I wanted it to, I would be SO happy. In the beginning, I was very happy with it and now I'm just not happy with it at all. It WAS a good phone and now it's like it just went downhill and doesn't work like it should. There is a front facing camera but the pictures are terrible when I use it, the back camera is okay. I've never taken videos, but the quality is okay on the back camera so I assume the video is good. I do not like the keyboard and I had to BUY the swype app because the text input is really crappy on this phone. Overall, it's just all the little things that make a phone a good phone that this one doesn't have! It's not very customizable. It would be a good phone for someone who hasn't ever had a smartphone but once they figure out what all the other smartphones are capable of doing, they won't want the pantech marauder anymore!Build quality 1/10Reception 3/10Call quality 1/10Internet 5/10Multimedia 1/10Camera 2/10UI speed 4/10Everyday usage 4/10Text input 1/10Display 2/10Battery 1/10

Really?.... A 7/10?

We got this phone in hopes that Pantech might turn around there ways and produce a phone that isn't cheap and glitchy. They didn't. The phone has an overall cheap feel with its body being made of flimsy plastics. The keyboard is barely functional and it seems like they went for a throwback to the old Razr flip-phone keypad style. The processor is average/below average compared to other 4g Android devices. Overall another disappointment from Pantech. If you are looking for 4g in this price range I would suggest looking elsewhere.Build quality 1/10Reception 6/10Call quality 5/10Internet 7/10Multimedia 3/10Camera 2/10UI speed 3/10Everyday usage 2/10Text input 2/10Display 2/10Battery 6/10
