I’m writing this review not 5 minutes after my phone locked up on a YouTube vid, wouldn’t do anything, wouldn’t restart, restarted in safe mode, then finally restarted normally. This is my second instance of the phone locking up for no apparent reason, the first being at the end of a general security update. It was down for about 30 minutes that time and I thought it was hosed.
Obviously the G1 couldn’t complete with the tech 5 years later and had a miniscule amount of memory, but if it wasn’t for the fact that I had no room to update anything I probably would have kept it. That and it started requiring 2-5 taps to select things. The G6 is bigger, has a nicer screen, works better with modern aps and all that, but I am a little concerned with it’s stability. Also it’s camera, which does take some nice shots, doesn’t go macro very well (not as well as the Samsung Galaxy S7), nor does it excel at motion shots or low light. It’s not bad, but it could do those things better. Call quality is somewhat tinny, but it’s not unusable. It’s a bit heavy and can be a stretch to reach the top of the screen one handed.
As far as RW on this phone… I had the Defy in beta, then the G1 and this phone is a definite upgrade. It has LTE! Handover of calls is nice, coverage has been good. It doesn’t drop my work wifi like the G1 used to. It’s got good functionality for the price. That said, I’d like my refund plan back RW.
