Crappy MVNO phone

This is a review of the Samsung Galaxy Victory on FreedomPop, the cell phone provider with the worst service and customer service in history. Some of these may be due to FreedomPop, and some of them may be due to the Phone.
Overwhelmingly disappointed does not begin to cover it.
The phone takes about 5-6 minutes to boot up once you have installed a few apps. This is especially a problem because after every phone call, the phone freezes and reboots. And That is a serious problem because it doesn't log phone calls which ended with a freeze.
The battery life is atrocious. Leave it in my pocket and use it for a total of no more than 45 minutes through the day, and is empty of juice by bedtime. This is AFTER turning on "battery saving mode" which slows the phone down noticeably.
The light sensor to tell the phone what brightness to use on "automatic" doesn't work, so automatic brightness is always at minimum brightness.
Disconnects from the internet frequently, both wifi cell, both 3g and 4g. Even when connected to wifi, it will frequently not actually connect to the internet.
Phone calls drop all the time, and about half the calls, both you and the other person cut out heavily. about a quarter of the time, incoming calls can't hear you at all.
The phone doesn't have nearly enough memory to function properly.
I could go on, but this is easily the worst phone I have ever had.Build quality 7/10Reception 2/10Call quality 2/10Internet 1/10Multimedia 4/10Camera 4/10UI speed 3/10Everyday usage 3/10Text input 4/10Display 3/10Battery 3/10
