actually not bad for $99

Jzaiger has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I just bought this, and frankly its quite a bit better than my previous LG Maxx/Mytouch 4G. This device has some lag but that's normal for a 1ghz single core and 512mb of RAM. The screen is decent, data is only 3G but its almost as fast as 4G. Nevertheless this device is not without its flaws. From the small processor (1.1GHZ MediaTek 6575 CPU to be exact) it makes managing large tasks a bit tirsome after a while on this handset. Simple processes turn into irritating seconds of lag. This is not a bad device by any means though people. The phrase "You get what you pay for" really stands out here. In most retail stores (WalMart, Target, Etc.) It sells for around $49.99 while in most T-Mobile stores thety will try to swindle you into paying $139.99. Overall I would indeed recomend this handset to you, and would rate this in MY own scale a 7.3 seeimg as it DOES hold potential in the novice consumer market.
