Perfect for me!
, November 20, 2012
My previous phone was an iPhone 3GS which was getting a little slow...
The ST27A is snappy! I have found an Android counterpart for all the apps I use and learning the OS was quick. I walk and ride my bike in the rain a lot (Pacific North West) so I love that this phone is water resistant, and manageable in size.
It does everything I need: calls, texts, email, online banking and music playing. I know others use their phone for a whole lot more, but I am in front of a computer 12 hours a day so my phone does not have to act as full fledged computer for me.
The one down side for me is the smallish battery capacity so I need to charge every other day, or if I use it a lot every day. Reducing the display intensity will add a lot to your talk time! For me the compactness outweighs battery life. The phone even slips into my shirt pocket without sticking out.
My carrier is StraightTalk and the Unlimited service works really well with this phone. You need the ST27A (NOT the ST27i) and the AT&T compatible SIM card from StraightTalk make things work together.
