Pros: Works great. T-mobile 4g plans are accepted but the phone can only use HSPA so you're down by only a couple of mbit less. Battery is great on normal use.
Cons: Battery capacity could have been bigger, 2100 mAh is more than enough but if you are gonna use HSPA network speeds then your in trouble because HSPA drains a lot more power than 3g or 2g. I wish there was a setting where I can choose 3g over HSPA.
Other Thoughts: I wish newegg had a case bundle for this. Not just any case but cases that covers up everything protecting the phone from almost every accident. Examples are Bodyglove ShockSuit, Griffin Survivor for S3.

Pros: It's a Samsung which is one of the biggest pros. Great screen,great video, PenTile display its amazing, and it's fast.
Cons: Mislabeled as so many 4G/LTE phones are on Newegg. The same reason the display is a pro is the same reason it is a slight con. The PenTile display is amazing but in zoom mode for video,games,text,etc. Its a bit blurry and washed out. Bit bigger than needs be, SGS2 size perfect. Plastic and yet still expensive contract or not.
Other Thoughts: Like the size of my old SGS2 or actually the size of my new LG Optimus G (Nexus 4 actually) as the right size. Won't be disappointed and LTE is extremely fast on AT&T faster than Verizonin all major spots (even here in Huntsville although Verizon can hit 60MMbps as well)

Pros: The 5 is Apple's best phone yet, and easily among the best devices on the market today. The design is beautiful and the form factor makes it very easy to operate with a single hand. Siri is also very helpful, allowing the phone to read texts to you (ie if you're on the road) as well as allowing you to dictate a reply without ever touching the keyboard. The device is NOT fragile like some would lead you to believe, in fact mine has dropped from my desk or nightstand a few times and there is not a scratch or dent on it - despite the fact I do not use a case. LTE service around central Texas is among the fastest, and often times outpaces my home Internet connection speeds. The Apple designed A6 processor is also incredibly efficient, allowing for performance that is best in its class, as well as low power/heat. Apple also pairs the A6 with 1gb of ram, though some devices have that or more, Apple utilizes LPDDR2 1066mhz vs LPDDR2 800 in other devices. Apple also licenses graphics technology from Imagination Technologies in the form of the triple core PowerVR SGX 543MP3 which is the fastest on the market, outpacing everything from Tegra, Adreno, and Mali designs, with exception to some of the very latests designs that will land in phones in the middle of 2013. Such custom silicon allows the 5 to offer over 10 hours of wifi browsing, and over 8 hours of LTE browsing. Even the new Galaxy S4 barely manages 6.5 hours wifi and 5.7 hours on cellular data. Apple cannot be beaten in terms of efficiency and battery life. Having more battery power, means the device is more usable on a day to day basis.
Cons: Cons are few and far between but the most obvious is a subtle purple halo that appears when taking photos into direct light. Obviously that is a bad idea to begin with, and being smart about your positioning before snapping a picture leads to better quality anyway.Also the introduction of the Lightning connector is hardly a con, Apple provides you with the cable and you can still plug it into existing power adapters or car chargers that allow you to use USB ports. This is Apple's first interface change since the first devices appeared in the 2000s. Other manufacturers had swapped port styles with very new generation before micro USB took hold. Heck some Samsung tablets (10" Galaxy for instance) do not even use micro UsB but. A propriety 30-pin connection.really the only other cons I could point out would effect the vast majority of devices that compete.
Other Thoughts: The previous reviewer is clearly biased and would rather invent excuses than pay attention to reality. Fact is the App Store has more apps and at better prices than Google Play or microsoft's app stores. Sounds more like he is unable to hack this devices and pirate apps, which is hardly a con. Some of us like to support developers and not steal their work. The in-house designed A6 offers better performance and efficiency than all the cookie cutter SoCs used by other manufacturers. Battery life is awesome, the screen is beautiful and fully calibrated from the factory. You don't need to be an Apple zealot to recognize how good this phone is.

Pros: Nice diplay when it works. The windows OS is nice when it works
Cons: quirky and problematic
Other Thoughts: I have owned this phone for about a year and got stuck with it. I am just about ready to dump it. It has been the worst phone I ever owned. When it works it's not bad but way to many problems and issues to list. Save yourself a lot of grief and stay away. This is second review I have done of this phone.

Pros: Modern looking, big screen with great image quality, Nice phone, etc...
Cons: Everything is fine until you drop it. It dropped from my pocket (3 feet high?) onto the floor, and the screen just shattered like ceramic plates. It would not even turn on. What a disappointment! If a phone cannot be dropped, I cannot use it as a phone...

Pros: This is a great phone overall. Updated to ICS right away with no issues. It's faster than my Samsung that had the same specs, the UI is sleek and smooth. The GPS is probably the best I have ever seen. It even shows you a picture when you get close of your destination. Battery life is about average for a smart phone. I can get 1.5 days out of light use, 1 full day out of heavy use.
Cons: This phone was obviously not targeted to US buyers. The phones language was in Chinese initially and it took me a while to figure out how to get it to English. Then Chinese kept coming up when I'd try to text and what not so I had to go in and disable the Moto Chinese input and a couple other things. -1 egg. This phone was very hard to root because of it being an Asian retail ROM. Once I finally found the right information it was a snap - 1 egg. It gets laggy sometimes and I have to pull the battery. Welcome to the world of Android.

Pros: 2 eggs because my questions about getting the mp3 player to function appear to have been dodged by the manufacturer. this was one of the main reasons i purchased this inexpensive phone. i would have spent another 20 dollars over the 27 i paid if i could have gotten a functional mp3 player.
i have owned and used this phone for a little over 3 months. it is the least expensive unlocked phone i could find that claims* to be an mp3 player. call quality and regular texting are satisfactory for the price.
Cons: very small buttons and would not recommend to those that text 100's of times each week. maybe if you have smaller hands and fingers but even than the texting feature is primitive compared to the samsung phone i had previously.
mp3 does not work and the multiple emails to the only address i can find for the manufacturer have not been responded too.
does not appear there is quick access to voicemail. after speaking with my carrier they mentioned it was not on their end so i assume its the phone that requires the password and when i try to deactivate the required password feature using their prompts it says that feature is not possible at this time.
Other Thoughts: if anyone knows how to get their phone to recognize their mp3 on their microsd card can they please share it with the community? i assume the folder may need a specific name? maybe even case sensitive? i have tried the common My Music and Music and do not recall it working correctly. if i go into file manager i can play one song at a time.
