    Its available today, went to Metro store my buddy runs..played with it, not impressed. Yes Speed is very fast, and plenty of memory, but over all feels very cheap in the hand. Not a super Amoled Screen. Camera has a flash, and it has the forward facing camera as well. However i failed to be impressed with it, even at 349 and with a 100MIR.

    Not a chance. This baby is just coming out and there's a $100 MIR that's going on until Nov. 24, I heard.

    This is easily Metro's best phone so I don't understand how people don't like it.

    Yeah I would gladly and patiently wait for a custom rom for it. Even stock this phone would whoop some ass. Alot of Cricket users are a little pissed that they dont have this phone and are getting the Huawei Glory.

    Oh does it? I havent read much about it but was reading some Cricket users in another forum site complaining that Metro was getting/got this phone and they were waiting/getting the Glory

    What the Glory? I doubt Metro will get it.

    Well, it somewhat evens out, the Glory has faster processor (1.4GHz vs 1 GHz), 8mp cam and 2mp front cam vs 5mp and 1.3mp, and 1900mah battery. The Esteem has a bigger screen (4.3 vs 4.0"), and 4G. Not saying anything bad about the Esteem, I like it a lot, and if Cricket had it I would be using it right now.

    Some info on the Glory if you're interested:
