1 out of 5 eggsBeware...

Pros: projector exceeded expectations... watching cartoons in bed on the ceiling is awesome. nice feel and size of phone body... not one but two high capacity batteries and a standalone battery charger!

Cons: slow processor, can't play higher end games because of lack of graphic acceleration. phone says the at&t signal I'm connected to is hsdpa, but it's not connected to any mobile data and won't let me do so, not even to the 2g EDGE data network. I have a grandxfathered unlimited data pla with at&t, and can connect to edge network on old iPhone 2g still, and connect to hsdpa and lte networks with my galaxy s2 skyrocket. also, even connected to wifi, there is no 4.1 update for this phone out, barely is any custom ROMs. the only update it did was to a rightly newer build of the same Android 2.3.6. I feel like I got lied to. oh and the auto correct sucks, tho that's manageable and fixable over time.

Other Thoughts: awesome phone, IF you're willing to sacrifice all the newer versions of Android, any custom roms, and any mobile data. might as well buy a pocket projector with more lumens and contrast and a go phone or straight talk or something. very disappointed. this phone feels more locked than any other, including iPhone 2g, inspire 4g (I unlocked myself), and a rooted s2 skyrocket.
