5 out of 5 eggsMore than I could wish for

Pros: 4G, unlocked, great display, easy to read, call quality.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I am using this phone on straight talk with no issues at all and all the features work including 4G what most people don't know is that you have to go into your setting and build your APN settings.

Android 1.5 (HTC G1 & Samsung Behold II) - Internet and MMS.

For Samsung Behold II,dial *#87927# and skip to step 5.1.Press the MENU key.
2.Tap "Settings."
3.Tap "Wireless Controls" or "Wireless and Networks."
4.Tap "Mobile Networks."
5.Check that "Data Roaming" and "Use Only 2G Networks" are both unchecked.
6.Tap "Access Point Names."
7.Press the MENU key.
8.Select "New APN."
9.Enter the information provided in the table on the left (case sensitive).
10.If no APN settings are present, a restore to factory default settings may be required.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for AT&T, so-so for T-MOBILE

Pros: Huge screen, super bright AMOLED, very fast (not as fast as a G2X or S3/S4/Note 2, but for the price and screen size it's fast.

Cons: Will only give you 2G internet speeds on T-Mobile. Royal suckage if you don't have AT&T.

Other Thoughts: Only buy if you have AT&T, even though it's unlocked, you will stab yourself in the face when you're not on WiFi if you use T-Mobile

1 out of 5 eggsLow (earspeaker) call volume

Pros: Great phone, or should have been. This is my second one, bought for wife.

Cons: The call volume, even when fully turned up, is a fraction of the volume my other infuse has. Is likely defective(was refurb). Will seek replacement from newegg.
