I bought this phone about a month ago. I am not a tech freak, so I don't generally try the most advanced stuff, but at the same time try to keep up with technology. The reason I switched to this phone, was that I was sick of paying upward of 65 dollars for a contract, and I must say I don't regret moving on.
-This phone has everything in one of those 500 dollars phones but technically it is just half a step behind.
-The camera is 3.2MP (similar phones with 5 or 8 MP are 150-250 dollars more expensive). it does not have a dedicated camera button, so you have to press the screen, which is annoying. The pics are not too bad, the videos are ok. I cant zoom comfortably, although there are options to zoom, but could not get it to work yet. So basically it is ok for on the go photos and videos but dont use it for wedding photos or videos.
-It has a powerful processor which you can use to work several applications at a time, but when I had one too many applications it sometimes slowed down a lot. nevertheless it is almost always good.
-I watch youtube videos on it, excellent streeming.
-I downloaded a lot of android market apps and games and everything work fine.
-I downloaded many books, movies, audio books on the external SD-card, and everything work fine on the phone, although the phone is not as big as a kindle so reading might not be comfortable if you cant look at a small font.
-I cant figure out yet how to download stuff directly to the SD-card while the sd card is in the phone. but after download you can easily move it from the phone to the sd card.
-phone voice is good, net is super fast (4G). no complaints.
-from what i read in previous reviews people may have problems with applications or recharging, which has nothing to do with the phone itself. and it is easily remedied, so you can signup with t-mobile for automatic recharging (they charge taxes though, I dont know if walmart does).
-like i said sometimes it slows down and i have to close some applications. it did freeze on me once or twice (but that's less often than my computer freezes on me)
It is an excellent top notch smart phone. Of course nothing is perfect and if you look hard enough you will find limitation for everything. I would definitely recommend it. I bout the 30 dollar unlimited text web card and 100 mins, and i installed Skype which i am already a subscriber to and have a Skype phone number and i use the Skype for all my phone talk (cost me extra 2.5$ a month for unlimited talk, and 2.5 for phone number (when people call my Skype number (from there phones) the phone rings))
hope that was helpful
