Rated 2 out of 5 by JustSomeChick 2 phones, both horrible
I have now had two of these phones. I thought maybe my first bad experience was a fluke, and the price was right to try again - but I wish I'd just gone with a different model the second time.
First off, they have horrible battery instability issues. For a while it works fine, then suddenly the phone will start losing charge like crazy, as if something is running in the background that can't be seen and is just sucking the life out of the phone.
They have an issue with temperature, sometimes getting so hot they feel like they could almost burn your skin. When that happens, again, the battery drains like crazy. The only way to fix these issues is to pull the battery out and let it cool down (or in the case above, let the phone sit with no battery for at least 30 seconds) and replace / restart it. Sometimes this has to be done several times before it starts behaving "normal" again.
Also, the longer you have the phone, the laggier and crashier it gets. It doesn't seem to have anything to do with available memory or types / number of apps installed- the phone just gets glitchy. It takes forever to open even something as simple as text messaging or the phone dialer. Apps crash. It will respond as if multiple areas of the screen are being touched at once.
Then there is the "missed call / text" problem. Both of the phones of this model that I've had do this - they will sometimes, randomly, not show an incoming call or voice mail or text message until a random time later. Maybe it's an hour. Maybe it's a day. I've had voice mail notifications show up a WEEK later with No record in the call log that the call came in - and not because the phone had been off. Just because it didn't feel like working that day?
This makes it completely unreliable if you have kids in school or are waiting on important calls. Oh, and don't get it if you have friends that may feel you are ignoring them - I've had to talk to more than one friend and tell them that no, I'm not being a jerk - my phone is.
Cheap? Sure. But you pay for that cheap price with a completely unstable model. Worth it to go for something better.
I will say that when you FIRST get the phone, it's really great. I loved it - right up until it started being twerpy. This is why I was willing to try again, hoping it was just that one phone - but they both had the Exact same issues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jerry Glitchy phone.
I was so excited when I got my new Motion 4G phone, I even paid full price for it. At first it was awesome. I downloaded games, apps, etc., everything you would do on a smartphone and then it started getting glitchy. The phone would lag like it didn't have enough memory. I would be playing a game (like say, perhaps a baseball game where timing is imperative on a pitch) and the game would lag, and I would miss the pitch, therefore losing the game. Alright, a lag here, a lag there, no big deal. Then it got extremely laggy. I'm currently shopping for a new phone as a result of this.

My phone has not had problems with any of my applications; ample memory and it is always dependable. I have had this phone for over two years and not one problem. Many friends seem to complain about phones they have but not one of them has the Motion.... I made the smartest choice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymouse Gorilla Glass? HAH
The tech specs on the phone are pretty basic, I use my tablet for social media instead because it's faster than the phone, but for listening to music on the go it does quite well. Sometimes the keyboard settings get messed up, but it can be fixed with updates usually.
The screen is what bothers me. My phone slipped out of my hand (was in a hard rubber case) and the glass shattered. I'm talking super small shattered glass pieces in your fingers-shattered. It didn't fall very hard from very far, and it shattered like a window. Not happy with it. It appears to be normal glass. I can't even find a screen to replace it with and it bothers me.
It still works with the broken screen, some of the time, just have to keep plastic over it at all times to avoid splinters.
