UPDATE: Do not buy this phone, I have only had it for about 2 months now and it shuts down more and more. I've already had to do a master reset, and that was the last straw. I think if it wasn't a single core processor it would function better. I'll be buying a different phone soon than I had originally wanted.
That is what I said about a year ago when it was new. Using this phone I found that I love having a smartphone and now that I understand how useful a tool they can be I wanted to do more with more apps then this low end phone can handle. That and I wanted a large screen due to the amount of time I ended up using it.
I lowered my rating to 3 stars simply because now for $150 and under you can get a much better phone locked in prepaid or even for about $200 could get a Moto X unlocked and use T Mobile. I ended up getting a Amazon Fire Phone for a crazy low price of $200 including a year of Prime and use Brightspot, T Mobile through Target, for the same $35/month I paid with Virgin. I'm very happy with a high end phone now.
Below is my original review of this phone.
For me the screen is a great size as it fits in my pocket with no issues.
The processor is fast but not multi core. There is a lag getting web pages open even on wifi but it is not bad. It only has 3g and the processor is fine for that speed. You'd really want dual core for 4g so you can see the speed benefit over the web. If you are wanting to be on the web a lot on your phone you would be happier with a dual core and 4g phone. For me this is fine.
Andriod versions are a bit odd in that the newest version is never on any phone for a while. This is 4.1 and that is the newest widely used Andriod version. Some phones like the s4 are beginning to have 4.2 now. The newest actually is 4.3 and that ought to be compatible with apps so this should be fine there.Read more ›
I read the bad reviews on this phone, and I was a little bit hesitant to get it but I bought it anyway. It's a pretty nice phone. It supports all of the new apps, has wifi, GPS, nice camera with flash, all for a VERY reasonable price. The only complaint I have is that it will crash every once in a while. This is my very first smartphone so I don't have anything to compare it to, and the crashing doesn't bother me much. I simply restart the phone and continue what I was doing. This doesn't happen very often, I'd say once every couple of months. So if that would annoy you, then I would recommend the Galaxy S3 or one of the other Galaxy devices for Virgin Mobile.
In a previous review someone mentioned that this phone gets bad cell reception. That is NOT true. It's not the phone that gets bad reception, it's the Virgin Mobile network that is somewhat lacking.
