I've been with MetroPCS for quite awhile and can say this device is it. Like everyone has said its fast, but the memory is what sold... Over 5 GIGS! Internal! I'm sorry but I had no idea how nice it is to have that with a dual core and 1gig of ram and ice cream sandwich! I had the HTC Wildfire S and this thing is like comparing a Prius to a BMW. I'm not sure if other owners know this but the LG system lets you DISABLE OR UNINSTALL BLOATWARE! (use the app 'Application Manager' to UNINSTALL APPS it keeps the apk on its own but not running means no update messages, TO DISABLE go to normal settings and 'Apps' find app open settings of it like you would to uninstall and it will say'Disable') Oh and you can screen capture with the already installed Quick Memo app. And the front facing camera is 1.3 MP which if pretty much the standard for the higher end phones also. Back lens is only 5 MP but it gets the job done. Both front and back work fast and clean, and it even does 1080p video... Not like my camcorder but impressive still.By the way it lasted me fine all day when I worked, hence not playing it solid hours on end, besides it seems to charge pretty quick regardless. This phone is all kinds of awesome in a small package.

I had the LG connect, and what a waste that was. It was glitchy and wow, even tho at the time the reviews said it had the best battery life of the MetroPCS smartphones, wow, it was terrible. I had to use a battery saver app and buy extended life batteries. and still, it barely made it through a work day.

The Motion is fantastic. It's a great phone. the Dual core processor keeps it moving super fast-- i'm playing an RPG video game on it, and can easily jump off the game to browse the web or use google maps with no slow downs. This phone also comes allowing you either uninstall or disable all the bloatware, without having to go through the headache of rooting it, so no more dealing with tons of app icons you never use.

The battery life is great. Works about the same as any other phone I've had, as long as you are mindful of killing your tasks-- and it comes loaded with a task manager app that makes it easy to kill your running programs when you're not using them. I haven't even downloaded a battery saver app. Very intuitive interface.

As just a phone, callers sound a little muffled, but nothing too bad. My friends sometimes have trouble hearing me, but it tends to be more the network, and not the phone. ("you're breaking up").

So far, no glitches to report. I've had it about a month now. It pretty much just does what it should. And if you don't like something, there's always an app out there.

Hands down, the best MetroPCS smartphone to come along. and it's totally affordable.

Verified Purchase
Ensure you have 4G Metropcs coverage in your area before purchasing. You can check this on the coverage map on their website, there is a list of cities in the bottom right hand corner at the time of writing. In fact if you order from Amazon (not market place) they will cancel the order at checkout during the shipping address process if your address is not in one of these cities. This device is also carrier locked so will not operate on any other network.

This review was completed after applying the over-the-air software update from version (C to D).

This runs on ICS 4.0.4 and is the same as every other phone with ICS. Besides saying this is a general improvement over Gingerbread, theres no point in commenting on this operating system. I will also not comment on the availability of rooting, custom recovery, bootloader unlocks, system restore facilities etc. There appears to be less of a need for some of these in ICS.

CPU/ OS performance/ Memory 5/5
Excellent, dual-core processor (multi-task), lots of memory and fast in every respect - biggest selling point of this device and most important. You can install and do whatever you wish with no lag. I have noticed some rogue apps maxing out the processor occassionally but this can be caused by many factors. You need to kill them if they do this ASAP, a maxed-out dual core processor will only drain the battery quickly and create lots of heat.

Screen 3/5
This has an IPS screen therefore it is rich in colors. Its so rich that the lighter colors appeared a little washed or contrasty at first use. In reality its simply displaying a wider color spectrum. The screen is very responsive and smooth.

Just left Straight Talk for Metro PCS to take advantage of their new $55 (fees and taxes included) unlimited everything plan with no data caps or throttling. Straight Talk's terms of service strictly prohibit streaming of audio and video. If that's not a problem for you, it's a great deal, but let's face it, a smartphone begs to take advantage of these features.

I purchased this phone and it is an amazing deal. You get a great phone at a great price. The phone has no lag at all and offers everything one could ask for in a compact package. I have used phones with larger screens and was surprised at how satisfied I was with the size of this device. It is compact, sleek and a joy to use. In my experience, the battery life is excellent for a smartphone. Also, the phone is easily upgraded with up to a 32 GB micro SD card. The size of smartphones are getting out of hand; that's what tablets are for.

Metro PCS call quality, texting and data exceeded my expectations. The LTE data where available is more than fast enough to do whatever you need without any hiccups. It is certainly faster than what I have experienced on Sprint, Virgin Mobile and Verizon's 3G networks. Also, I have to say that Metro's customer service on the telephone have been top notch.

If you have good coverage in your area of use, you can't go wrong with Metro PCS and the LG Motion. Together with the great new unlimited plan, we all win.
