The T-Mobile Kyocera Hydro Life would be a great phone if you just wanted something to use while working out without having to worry about dropping it or sweating on it. Would be a great “sometimes” phone for the beach/waterpark/etc. Worth a look as a second-string device.
Looks like a nice backup phone, the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Avant is now on sale for $216 or $0 down followed by 24 payments of $9 each or $216.
The new T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 530 will be available later this year. The Lumia 521 has a dual core processor while the 530 has quad core and it’s clocked a bit higher. The 530 also has slightly better screen resolution and their GPU are almost the same (305 vs 302). Dedicated camera button and capacitive keys.
The T-Mobile LG G3 is now on sale for $0 down followed by 24 monthly payments of $24.95, the full retail price is $599. The screen is fantastic, the camera is fantastic, the feel and the layout of the phone is fantastic, the features and design of the phone itself are fantastic. The fact there’s a removable battery cover and battery is fantastic. One of the biggest downsides for me is that the battery life is nothing special, in fact I think it may be a step down from the G2 but a very small step.
The T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 635 is now on sale for $0 down and $7 per month for 24 months, $168 full retail price. On HSN for $119, delivery on 7/21. The white version looks premium. Really wish it had a front facing camera and camera flash.
July 16: Available from participating T-Mobile stores nationwide
July 18: Arrive in select MetroPCS stores and online
According to Evleaks, the Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet will be coming to T-Mobile. If you need a tablet or a light laptop it’s for you. It has a great feel to it, especially with the silicone and plastic case with a kickstand. It charges very quickly and has excellent battery life. The camera takes decent pictures but has a horribly slow shutter speed.
If you have not used Windows 8 before, there is a bit of a learning curve, but otherwise it is very easy to use.
