I got the Light in November '13 and I'm still figuring out things about it.... The reason I got this device was because I have a Samsung Note Tab and I didn't see a need to get another "tab like" cell.. So I "went down" to the light. Although, initially, I was under the impression I was sort of downgrading.. After using the device for a few months and becoming more familiar with it.. I sure am happy with my decision. I can say that I more than likely would be satisfied with this phone even if I didn't have a tablet!
As stated above...One of the main drawbacks for me is the bloatware..and as stated above also.. Yes, much less than Verizon....I came over to T-Mobile after 15 years at the V.. And I couldn't be happier!!
I got a few productivity apps (Clean Master, DU battery & speed booster) and I often use the T-Mobile "device health" app combined with the productivity apps and I greatly increase my battery life and RAM....I went ahead and rooted and finally flashed a few ROM's and got my phone all set up perfectly...at the present time my battery lasts somewhere around 50-60 hrs with moderate use. I have to say that I am glad I finally rooted because I don't "worry" so much about my battery life, memory life, and usage ability as much as I did pre-root.
Also I also am always looking for any tips you all can give me to make it an even better experience for me!!
