I got this phone as a cheap android phone that I could use to get a feel of android. I did not expect even a cheap android phone to be this bad. I will start with the design, the phone is shaped like a bar of soap which makes it pretty hard to hold. The keyboard often slides open in my pocket causing the phone to unlock and perform random tasks. To the display. The display is crap. The camera on this phone is basicly useless and is not worth saying anything more about. Call quality on the Spice is ok and I did not have any dropped calls on Moblicity's network. Performance on this phone is so bad that the phone is hard to use. I learnt later the the Spice has a GPU but it is was disabled by Motorola. I also have rooted this phone, but it does nothing for performance. As far as ecosystem and software goes this phone runs on Android 2.1 with Moto-Blur I won't go in to how much it sucks. Lastly battery life on the Spice is ok if you don't use data at all. In general there is nothing good I can say about this phone.

Please don't buy it
