Bang for your buck in terms of both performance and style
The Electrify M hits all the marks: performance is top-notch, the display is stunning, and the nearly bezel-less design is just as groundbreaking and fun as it was on the RAZR M. The Electrify M is no RAZR by any means thanks to its cheap exterior, but internally, it's got the guts it needs to land near the top of US Cellular's stellar portfolio.
LOVE this phone
I dont know why anyone would sign a 2 year contract and pay 100 bucks a month for service on a smart phone when this is an option now. This phone has all the features, very high tech but also very easy to use, its well made, fast (as fast as any 3G phone) and tough. I pay the same 45 bucks a month for service, unlimited talk, text and web ect....no contract. I love that this phone is water and dust resistant. With three kids that is a must!
Great battery life, dust- and water-resistant
Retailing at S$399 without an operator contract in Singapore, the Defy XT could be the handset of choice for sporty outdoor types, but given the performance hangups, it may be a good idea to wait for the Xperia go instead. Honestly, the Defy XT could use a much needed hardware update to stay relevant to modern users--it feels really dated at this point, like it was intended to compete with last year's Xperia active.
Sport water-resistant body and look decent by design
The Defy XT comes for a price where the competition is already very high and much of the powerful smartphones available on the market at this price range. So, if you are looking for a high-end device than look after the good quality display, processor, operating system, and overall performance. Still, itâ??s a good deal until you get the competing device at the same price.
Abysmal video quality, sub-par camera
The Nokia Asha 309 in today's market will have a single argument to make to its buyers - price. Selling for around $105 - $110, it is almost as affordable as the bottom low of Android, the 2.8-inch Samsung Galaxy Pocket (sold for around $115).
And if you really want a similar, 3-inch display, the Android-running Samsung Galaxy Y (sold for $130) and the LG Optimus L3 (some $130), are only slightly costlier, but worlds apart in terms of the experience.
The Nokia Asha 309 finds itself between a rock and hard place; on the one hand it's not cheap enough to tempt non-technical users away from traditional candy-bar phones, and on the other, it's not powerful enough to punch it out with heavy-weight, low-cost Android phones. Unless you really, really need a touchscreen phone with long battery life, there's pretty much no reason to choose the Asha 309 over a budget Android phone such as the stunning ZTE Blade III.
