Worst Metro PCS Phone's of 2012

Warning Do Not Buy!


I put together this short list of Metro pcs handset's not to buy. Beware a salesman that's out of what you want will sell you anything. Your more than welcome to check out my YouTube channel to be able to gauge my opinion, I have thoroughly tested just about every Metro pcs device that's available and have about 10 year's experience in cell phone sale's and repair. So here's my DO NOT BUY list of 2012!

#1 Coolpad Quattro 4g


The Coolpad 4g is a definate do not buy! The screen is very unresponsive and when a screen protector is applied to the screen the bottom button don't work at all. The form factor is bulky and uncomfortable to carry and is running Gingerbread. Device is very slow which is expected with only a 1Ghz single core processor and has very little internal memory which mean's very little space for apps.

#2 ZTE Anthem 4g

I only added this device because for $200+ this should have ICS or Jelly bean. Spec's are ok price is too high. I would definately buy the ZTE Avid or LG Motion over spending this kind of money.

#3 Any 3G Smartphone!

All the 3g smartphone's are a minimum of $50 a month. Minimum plan on 4g device $30/month and the phone's are very close in price. Dont buy a 3g Android device from Metro pcs!


Best Metro PCS Phone's of 2012 !

#3 ZTE Avid 4g

Another dual core beast running ICS. Retail's for only $149 as well and has a 4" display a definate must see.

Samsung Galaxy Admire 4g HD Gaming

HD Gaming on the New

Samsung Admire 4g by Metro pcs


I put together a couple of video's demonstrating HD gameplay on the new Samsung Galaxy Admire 4g for Metro pcs. Frist video is Temple run, it's available for free in the Google Play Store. The second I am playing Death Dome which is also a free download from the Google Play Store. If you would like to see a particular game played on the Admire just leave your request in the comment's.
Not too bad I did experience some lag while playing and every once in a while the screen was unresponsive.
Great game with very good graphics. Unfortunately I'd say the Admire was very unresponsive when playing and the lag was awful. Worst part about it the load time was really long...

Samsung Galaxy Admire Review and Quadrant Standard

Samsung Galaxy s3 Review & Quadrant Standard


The Samsung Galaxy Admire 4g will be the final addition to Metro PCS' smartphone lineup this year(2012). It's available in store's now for $169.99, and is compatible with the $30/month 4g promotional plan for a limited time. The phone run's on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) which was definately a little bit of a let down. I was hoping they would at least epuip this device with ICS. I haven't found anything on if they are planning to update this to ICS or Jelly Bean yet but I also don't believe there are any Android phone with a single core processor that are running the newer version's of Anroid either. This device only has a 1Ghz processor, another dissapointment... The rear facing camera is 3MP and the front facing is 1.3MP.
After using the device for a few hour's I decided the 1Ghz processor actually is just fine on this phone. I have not witnessed any lag on the device even when multitasking. The internal memory isn't bad on the phone when I took it out of the box it had 1.5GB of free internal memory. That's plenty of room to download app's. The phone does also take a micro sd card for expanded memory. Camera quality is pretty good definately alot better than the first generation Admire and I really like the screen size. 3.65" sounded smaller than I would like but it's very comfortable in my hand as well as my pocket and was a refreshing break from the gigantic screen on the Galaxy s2 I have been using. The video above is a short hand's on review of the Samsung Galaxy Admire 4g, check it out! The one below is a benchmark test using Quadrant Standard from the Google Play Store.


If you have any question's or would like to request a video made showing you how to do something on your phone just leave your request in the comment's I will get back to you as soon as possible.
