An excellent phone well worth the money.
This is a wonderful phone. It does everything the expensive ones do and it is still plenty fast. Excellent wifi capability as well. Camera is very easy to use and zooms well. Over all it is a great phone and very much worth the money.

Great value, make sure new battery, Perfect for a first Android. Fun.
I love this as my first Android phone. It has enough variety in apps to get the ones I was wanting (in particular, I managed to find Kindle for it if I used the right keywords to separate the search from a different, less compatible version, and a very useful eBay app, Amazon app, Barcode Scanner for QR codes, Pandora, Gmail, Google Search, etc. I didn't get enough bandwidth to make much use of the Netflix app, but it's very well for a gingerbread phone). The SD mini cards are still easy to find and make it easy to upgrade the storage capacity, but are required to make it work well. The SD reader is also easy to get to transfer to and from computer, to get ringtones from your favorite mp3s and set them, and the chargers and accessories are still easy to find.
It was easy to find designer covers/cases, but none that fit the extended battery larger back cover. The extended battery that I found was used, just like the phone was, and so it was not too surprising that it didn't have much battery life and had to be charged to use it at all the next day. There was a useful app for the alarm that I found for free that faded the noise in gently for a full wake-up without rebellion, and a fun free aquarium animated background.
The camera works adequately and focuses before the picture is taken, though that takes a second or two so you have to hold it steady that long and it makes it hard to capture moving things in photos but is great for getting static non-moving things in focused detail. I wasn't able to find a flash on it, if that is a thing that phones have for photos?
The messaging feature with MetroPCS has the annoyance of not showing the time that a text was sent after it passes to the next day. Some of the features like figuring out how to get it to forward a text to someone else can be complex for someone new to Android phones.
MetroPCS has always been great for cost because of the unlimited data, US calling, and texting included.
The calendar app feature works great with gmail.
The craigslist app needs confirmation on a better computer or device in order to fully post something.
Contacts can be burdensome if you load them from gmail and don't have the storage space for them, and can cause issues until they are removed. So keeping just basic contacts if you have Metro Backup app, and not linking to the gmail account, is best.
This phone has become my computer away from home of sorts, only simpler.Read full review

Fulfills its purpose.
Very efficient, easy to use. With or without the manuel, you can still figure out how to operate the phone and get it to do what you need it to.

Easy to use, very low memory
I've had this phone fora few months. I have 1 major problem with this phone and it's the memory. the memory of this phone is so low that it is next to impossible to download more then 5 apps onto the phone even moving the app to a SD card wont make a different for the simple fact when your apps needs update it wont save the update information to the SD card with the app. it will actually save the update files onto the phone itself which takes up even more memory.it does run apps like Pandora very well but some times because your memory is so low you not get any notification at all or randomly get a stream of 1 week old ones if you make room. it does have a slow internet but that's fine, everything else about the phone is ok. if they fix the memory issue this phone would be amazing.
