3 out of 5 eggsThis review is to correct the poster who thought he was correcting the first poster

Pros: Don't own it so have nothing to say either way about the quality or performance.

Cons: T-mobile actually uses the AWS band for its 3/3.5G, which is 1700+2100 (one is for uplink, other for downlink). So the statement that 1700 is dominant for TMO is wrong.

There are countries that use only 2100 for 3G, but not TMO USA. Since this phone does not support AWS (1700+2100), you cannot use it on TMO AWS 3/3.5G network, even if you are in an area with 2100 band.

He is however correct in that TMO is shifting over most of its 3/3.5G network to the 1900 band and has coverage in a lot of big cities on this re-farmed band. Check the web for coverage of 1900 3G for TMO.

3 out of 5 eggsReally nice phone

Pros: Android 4, nice speed, battery life

Cons: only 2G data speed

Other Thoughts: Very nice operating phone, plenty fast processing, clear graphics, even without 1080p, this is clear for the size. If you want to use for more than checking your email, then get a phone with faster data speed.

3 out of 5 eggsThis review is to correct the first review poster

Pros: This review is to correct what the first reviewer talks about 3G/2G incompatibility.

Cons: GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz (2G)
UMTS 900 / 1900 / 2100 MHz (3G)
LTE - not supported (4G)

Other Thoughts: From above frequency list, GSM (for 2G and voice calls) is quad-band world ready. This phone is capable of running EDGE 2G data and receive and place calls.

UMTS (3G or 3.5G) only supports 900/1900/2100 MHz.
T-Mobile USA 3G uses 1700 MHz and 2100 MHz with 1700 MHz dominates most area. You might get 3G connection from 2100 MHz, but hardly. T-Mobile is rolling out 1900 MHz this year, so this phone could get 3G in some area too.

AT&T USA uses 850/1900 MHz for their 3G. So this phone will not likely get 3G connection.

3 out of 5 eggsJust okay

Pros: Small, nice screen, Android 4.

Cons: Not LTE. Not compatible with T-Mobile HSPA+. Bounces back-and-forth between Edge and 3G speeds. I seem to have a lot more "missed calls" than I did on the old LG Optimus this phone replaced. Overall, it's not a great "phone". button placement on the sides make it too easy to get turned on/off in your pocket.

Other Thoughts: Despite the name, this is NOT the Galaxy SIII stuffed into a smaller form factor. The HUSPA (which should be HSPA+ compatible) runs on the 1900Mhz frequency. T-Mobile runs on the 1800Mhz frequency. Supposedly they are building out the 1900Mhz band to support iPhone users. Haven't seen it my area yet, so I can't verify the phone will get "4G" speeds when they do. Overall, it's an okay phone and I like the smaller size. But it's not an SIII and it's not good for heavy web users.
