    not bad for a $150 no contract phone.

    That's the price of the warp which has a much better screen. Pass.

    the warp comes with the exact same screen, gingerbread, and a single core snapdragon s2. this comes with ICS and a dual core. the warp is on boost and this is on metro. the warp is a good phone at $99 that will get anyone by, but this phone is much better for an extra $50.
