    Comments about Virgin Mobile Awe No-Contract Phone:

    Lost my phone so I had to get a cheap replacement, was surprised at the price and figured i was buying a dog of a product. Not so. This is a really nice phone for the price, and it has a surprisingly fast processor that lets me play games that I thought I wouldn't be able to. Has a decent cam, and the best thing of all is that I've had for two months now, and it hasn't given me any problems. It's a very reliable, durable phone

        I've been a Virgin Mobile customer for quite awhile, using Pay-Lo, but decided to try an android phone with the unlimited data plan. The Awe is a great phone for someone who doesn't need a lot of "bells and whistles" but needs the functionality of a smartphone.

        Comments about Virgin Mobile Awe No-Contract Phone:

        I love this phone! I've downloaded several apps and it's easy to manage data usage and storage space. All of my downloaded apps have worked wonderfully without glitches or freezing, some of which include Facebook, Messenger, Gmail, Tumblr, Pinterest, Photobucket, Skype, and some preschool games for my 4 year old son. I've had this phone for almost a year and my only complaints is that it's not 4G network compatible and the 3G network near my house can be spotty at times, but that's an issue with the network, not the phone, because anywhere else I get great signal. Also, it could do with some more memory space, but for the price, it's actually really good, and I do have the SD card to help back that up.

        After almost a year, I'm needing to replace it due to a broken screen. It's a pretty hardy little thing when it comes to random falls, but it was the subject of some rage. After looking at other Virgin Mobile phones, I can honestly say that I'll be buying the same model because it's the best one in this price range. I was even contemplating splurging a bit, but the reviews on the more expensive phones made them sound like expensive little problems, whereas I've had virtually none with mine. So I'll be saving the money and sticking with what I know works!

        By the way, I said that the con is the poor battery life, but that's mostly due to my phone having to fight to get the 3G signal at home (in the mountains). My phone can last all day if it's not somewhere constantly struggling to connect. However, I saw another user posted that backing completely out of apps instead of using the home button will close out the apps and help with not eating your battery life. I will be trying to remember this in the future!

        Comments about Virgin Mobile Awe No-Contract Phone:

        Very good value considering this is a no-contract phone. First impression of build quality is quite good. Display is hard to see in sunshine but very nice indoors. Dual-core but requires rooting and over clocking to enable both cores. Once this is done and benchmarked, AnTuTu reports CPU performance is just shy of the S3! Randomly rebooted once since I purchased it and discovered online this is an issue with the phone. On the down side, the camera is bad.

        If you have a contract the S3 can be had for free. Considering that I picked this up at Radio Shack for $30 + tax for use on Virgin Mobile I consider myself lucky.

        Comments about Virgin Mobile Awe No-Contract Phone:

        The Good:
        Price! its equivalent to some $200-$400 phones but you get it for under $50.

        It's pretty fast, has a dual core even though it's only listed as a single.

        Screen is pretty big, decent resolution.

        All apps i've tried have worked perfectly.

        Even posts instaram videos with no issues!

        Lots of internal memory.

        The Cons:

        when you start up the phone it has a really annoying VM banner.

        It's jammed packed with VM bloatware.

        The camera is pretty outdated, unless you're in perfect light your images will look bad. ISO 100 is the only one I liked, unfortunaly that leaves night/dark shots out of the question.

        The flash is okay, but like any on board flash it makes everything look flat.

        The front facing camera is actually pretty good. Same as a modern webcam.

        Camcorder is horrible, dont even bother using it.

        ----------------------------------------
        Thankfully some of those are fixable, I rooted my phone and installed a kit kat rom.

        it took away the banner and the bloatware.

        Also it let me install a wifi theter which lets me use the internet from my phone without paying a ridiculous fee.

        For pictures/Video I use my Mirrorless and DSLR cameras then just toss it onto the phone.

        PS: would not recomend radioshack's shipping! it was horribly slow, buy it in the store instead!
