I have Cricket for my cellular provider and have used a few mobile phones so I believe I can make an educated Overall Rating.
I replaced an HTC 6800 because its browser really sucked. Granted since it was like 3 years old and since I flashed the phone I do not know if I could have updated the software. It could not link to the Sprint Network.!!!
Now to pick this phone apart calling Balls and Strikes:
Con: The Microsoft Word on it sucks beyond belief in my opinion. You can cut, copy, and paste with both but the Droid makes it all or nothing. The HTC 6800 could select a single word, sentence, or paragraphs. Being an analytical thinker I loved that on the 6800.
Awesome #1: It is very easy to use and has tons of gadgets. The 6800 was easy to use and had some but nothing like this.
Awesome #2: I love the Google Mapquest that is uses. It gives verbal driving directions so no need to look phone while driving. Set the locations, turn down the radio, and forget it. Now if you make a wrong rurn or want to use a different highway it will redirect you. Think using back roads to bypass traffic. The HTC 6800 did not.
Awesome #3: It has a way better Camera and Video Camera because it even gives you the option to use a wide screen in the picture settings.
Awesome #4: It has 7 separate desktops you can use and get to by sliding your finger left or right and on any one of them. The center one is your home desktop you see all the time or when booting up the phone like a pc. I use the pc analogy because it is one without a cd-rom.
Awesome #5: Another awesome thing sliding you fingers apart on the screen almost always enlarges every page or picture you want to. Only once in like 3 months it did not zoom the page.
Awesome #6: It let me download a New Update for the Mapquest Application. Think an update it like Windows does for its software & safety. Roads get changed & added all the time.
Awesome #7: If you have a wireless router at home you will understand this. The phone has one built in. On your second desktop to the right of your home desktop page it has your on an off switch. P.s. Do not get pist when it sucks your battery dead like a vampire does a body. If you leave it on when you do not need it, it is your own fault.
I hope these Pros and Cons can help you out a little.
This is actually a clone of the real Dream G2 phone. I would accept this as the price was much less, however, the firmware on this phone is not ready for prime time. Let me count the ways:
1) Bluetooth was so weak that I could only get a connection to my motorola earpiece from about 1 foot away. This same device connected to my wife's phone from 30 feet.
2) The e-mail doesn't allow an SSL connection to the pop server. It also only allows you to download 50 messages and then quits. There is a setting for this, but 50 is the highest setting. Clearing the first 50 and downloading the next set doesn't work either. It downloads the first 50 again.
The Google mail function shows a logon screen with userid and password entry boxes, but there is no way to enter any data into these boxes.
3) The only Google app that works is the Google Maps. The other functions don't work at all.
4) The Camera doesn't work. I have to push the "take" button many times and eventually it will take a picture. It then displays the picture sideways, and when I turn the camera it changes to keep the picture sideways. I can turn off the ACC function and then it will only take a picture in "Portrait" orientation. It will never take a picture in "Landscape" orientation. Even then I still have to press the "take" button many times to get a single picture.
5) The calendar will not allow me to set a yearly repeat. This makes it unusable for birthdays and anniversaries. The task function allows me to set a task with an annual reminder, but it doesn't show up in the calendar.
6) When the phone is turned off for a while, and I unlock the keyboard, then I can't lock the keyboard again until I go into Settings->Security and change the keyboard lock (back to the same thing it was already set at). I can then lock the keyboard again.
i bought this solely because of the screen size.
But later found out that it came in many many great things too.
i found the size is just right, at the right speed, descent battery life, nice quality camera, light in weight but sturdy enough.
i like almost everything about it including the new motoblur interface.
the physical button gives me mixed feeling though. i hope the buttons are durable enough because i'm going to use it a lot
if you are looking for a big screen phone. can't go wrong with this.
Amazing phone with only a few shortcomings. First, the screen is amazing. It's a perfect size and resolution. Movies look amazing and pictures look very nice.
The responsiveness of the phone is also very good. The 1ghz processor seems to do a very good job.
The fact that it can use microsd cards is a huge plus. Apple is just plain dump for not allowing this.
There are only 2 things I can really complain about. the first of course is the battery life. Everyone wants their battery to last forever but it's just not possible with this much processing power and screen size. I can get through most of a day and still have battery life left but still, having the plug it in every day is sometimes inconvenient.
The second is no forward facing camera for face chat. I understand it would only work on a 4g network but still, to be able to face chat on wifi would be cool.
Overall, I am very happy with the phone and would definitely buy ti again if given the opportunity.
