Hello guys, I had the LD Esteem from when it was newly released on MetroPCS until this week. I replaced it with this Alcatel One Touch Fierce. If you are still wondering about this phone, just get it. It works great and has very few downfalls. Pros: Faster than LG Esteem, Has android 4.0+ so it can use all of the modern apps which my old phone could not use. The phone is faster going through menus and opening webpages, and doing everything. Battery lasts longer, Screen is bigger, lighter and thinner. Everything important, this phone has it and it works fine. Price is great, so can be used as a placeholder for people waiting on another phone or price drop for one of the expensive ones. Cons: Camera does not have autofocus. Sound is kind of low by default(need to change that with apps, then it is fine) Bonus: This phone can be rooted using one click and done through the phone, no PC needed. Just get Framaroot app, I have a step by step on how to do this in "all things rooted" section of this forum for this phone.
