Now a fancy paperweight

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

Did not have a lot of life in the hardware. It died a few days ago and is now a fancy paperweight. At one time after having it for about six months the stored text messages vanished with no trace. Often ran slower than pitch in winter. Would not recommend as there are still Verizon stores that carry this.

Build quality 4/10 very fragile looking
Reception 4/10 Grip of reception death
Call quality 4/10 When the quality was good, it was really good, but when it was often bad due to reception...it was awful.
Internet 3/10 slower than pitch 3g
Multimedia 5/10 some formats needed better handling
Camera 3/10 Camera was trash before it was released.
UI speed 2/10 The UI lagged often
Everyday usage 5/10 hated using it, but is was my only option at the time
Text input 5/10 I needed to buy a keyboard that didn't hog half the screen
Display 5/10 for the size it was alright
Battery 4/10 had to charge it twice a day at least


  • fit easily in my pocket


  • died just after warranty was up
  • the speaker was awkward
  • laggy ui
  • default keyboard was a screen hog
  • at one point my text messages vanished from my phone
