Avoid this Event

This phone is flat-out horrible, even for $20 (the lowest cost I have seen the Event on Virgin Mobile). Trying to play any game is pretty much near impossible. Multitasking as well. Apps crash all of the time. The camera is horrible. It only runs Ice Cream Sandwich. The screen resolution is awful. It's near impossible to see during the day, even on full brightness. Call quality is horrid. On the other hand, it is durable, has a removable battery, and an SD card slot.
Kyocera Event (Rooted) Review
Alpha099 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
A decent phone for the price while durable for the ones who are clumsy (like me). Audio after updating google play music, a curtal file to run the built in equalizer in google play music went missing was mediocre but after using an app (afx) was better while gaming was not much better as games were glitchy and had crashing issues that annoyed me which other apps have as well.
I don't even use this as a phone...

Purchased on sale at Best Buy under Virgin Mobile for ten bucks, I use this primarily as an MP3 player in my tow truck and rarely for very basic web browsing and Facebook over Wi-Fi, and it also has a camera with flash, low quality but it is better than the camera on my last actual MP3 player. Battery lasts forever in airplane mode playing music. Using a 16GB microSD card to store my songs. For ten bucks, I could afford a dozen of them before I come close to the cost of an iPod Touch.
