Overall great phone for people who want the basic necessities

That1PhoneGuy has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

Great phone for the price. Got this phone when it was new for $90.00 at a Verizon store. The QWERTY physical keyboard sets the standard for phones like it. One catch, though: You can get the LG Cosmos 2 for a lower price, and it has the same Brew MP software for cheaper than this phone. Otherwise, if you are more interested in fashion, this is the phone to get, and the price difference is negligible. Currently, you can get the Cosmos 3 on Amazon.com for $70.00. I personally think that this phone is worth the money. Having this phone for two and a half years, you really get to know it. In terms of offered features, the browser isn't functional, at least on my phone. The Cosmos 3 is SUPER durable. I once dropped this phone from bleachers, with it hitting several crossbars on the way down, and it still survived, with nothing wrong with the screen or how it operated. Connectivity works with Facebook for what I know. Calling and texting are great. Since I live in the mountains, most phones from other carriers such as AT&T (ZTE Z432 review coming soon) didn't work. Verizon held up there, and I will be using it from now on unless I switch to a budget carrier such as U.S. Cellular. Anyways, back to calling, it is better than expected from basic phones. The earpiece works great and the speaker isn't fuzzy. Texting has its pros and cons. The FN key allows access to special keys without going into a submenu, which is great. MMS and group chat is the Cosmos 3's weak spot. MMS takes a while...

Survives drops well, with some scratches and dents, but everything still works fine.
Reception

Only put this because I live in the mountains, but in cities, its exceptional.

Better than expected from a basic phone.
Internet

Internet doesn't work whatsoever, unless you figure it out.
Multimedia
7.0
Great on music, poor on MMS and group chat.
Camera
5.0
Camera is great, can be fuzzy and needs to be in right light levels, though it does have a night mode.
UI speed
5.0
UI stands for user interface speed. Fast with some things, slow with others.
Everyday usage
9.0
Great phone for everyday use, as the Cosmos 3 is always ready for what you take on (NOT waterproof)
Text input
9.0
Sublime for a phone like it, but not perfect.
Display
5.0
Display doesn't always respond with UI and display quickly, but keep in mind that this phone has very limited RAM storage. (I recommend buying a 16GB SanDick MicroSD card from Amazon {around 8 bucks} since this phone has less than a gig of internal memory)
Battery
10.0
Battery is SUPREME as mentioned in review

Pros

  • Style
  • Battery
  • Great Value
  • Camera (for a phone like it)

Cons

  • Internet non-functional
  • Bulky (which is good in some situations)
  • Not enough RAM
  • Low internal storage space
