How does this compare to the Samsung Galaxy S III?General

Last Updated:

  1. Just curious how this compares to the Samsung Galaxy S3? Is it pretty snappy when using apps? Is the screen almost as sharp? How's the camera in comparison? Anything else I should know? Thanks.

    Cameras are not as good, screen is just a tiny bit less crisp, VERY LITTLE room for apps, ram is pitiful.

    The up side? Much cheaper and besides the pitiful internal memory the rest is almost negligible for the casual user.

    Trust me, I have both.
  3. Is the camera better than the LG Motion? That's what I have now and it sucks a lot lol. The ram is double what the Motion has so that's not a big issue. I'll fix the app space by rooting it.

    Yes it is.
    I was comparing to my dual core s3 though.

    And actually, because of the way the phone works you actually cant really solve the app space problem easily.
    You need to root , swap internal and external sd, add link2sd and hope it all works on boot (which doesn't always happen because the sd swap is a post boot script). So large apps eat up space but you can store the data on the external sd

    How would you compare this phone to Fierce? It has double internal storage of F6 which isn't much but I have a 64 GB card and it offers the option to use that as main storage location like the Premia. I want to buy this phone since its on sale but idk if I should plus idk if it has otg support I asked two people and both had different answers.

    My f6 from metro doesnt have otg or hdmi adaptor compatibility.

    I honestly dont know about the fierce because I dont own one and I'm not gonna b.s. about a device I dont own.
    Astroballs and jokerpks like this.

    OK so it looks more like a downgrade expect for LTE... On this phone is it possible to use a micro SD card as the main location like on the premia or is there some limit. And yes I know you have to do it manually cause its not in the setting. Thanks in advance.
  8. So the memory swap method might work and might not? Not sure if I want this phone. 1.2gb isn't enough to work with. Does the L9 have this memory problem as well?

    The memory swap works. Ive only had problems when i dont give it about ten seconds after boot before playing with it.
  10. Thanks. I may give this phone a shot after all... I just have this horrible feeling that as soon I buy it, Metro is gonna release some amazing phones at super low prices. It is kinda strange for them to be having this phone for THIS cheap right now.

    Which is better, the F6 or the L9? They both look nearly identical.

    F6. I believe its got the 1.5ghz processor and an ir blaster (pretty much a novelty). Im not home so I cant check without googling.
