Perfect Intro Level Android Smartphone
on May 7, 2013
I bought this for the .01 cent penny price phone deal when my upgrade was available. This phone has everything I need. The camera is not as competitive as the 8 megapixel and higher versions you'll see on the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S IV, but this 5.0 megapixel camera does it for me. HTC's software helps to mitigate the megapixel difference too--the shutter speed is exceptionally fast for a smartphone and it has a great built in photo editing program. If you're looking to take high definition and professional quality photos then this isn't the phone for you--really if you want that then spend the money on a DSLR camera--but if you want something that takes great pictures to be uploaded and shared with your friends on social media sites or via email, then this is the phone for you.
It doesn't run the newest version of Android but it is one of the most recent versions. It is compatible with the thousands of apps on the market place and it is worth the .01 cent you'll spend on it. Not to mention it is lightning fast and I never have any hardware issues with the phone. It is quick and responsive and also has a great built in wifi adapter that is much faster than my old smartphone's wifi adapter.
I also highly recommend the OtterBox commuter for the HTC One VX (You can get it on Amazon new for $35) The phone is so light I wanted to add some weight and protection to it. The OtterBox did both.
Overall, this phone is essentially free if your upgrade is up and this phone is the best of all of the free phones. Phone plans are already expensive enough per month so I couldn't justify spending another $200 on a phone that I can spend $.01 and get the exact same results.
