    Question The LG Esteem on MetroPCS or the Huawei Glory on Cricket

    The LG Esteem on MetroPCS is to be retailed at $379 and released in September but the Huawei Glory on Cricket is to be released in November and at $300.

    Huawei Glory - 1.4 Ghz Snapdragon processor, 1900mah battery 2gb of memory, and an 8mp camera with flash

    LG Esteem - 1 Ghz Snapdragon processor, 1500mah battery with 4gb of memory, and a 5mp camera with flash as well as a front facing camera.

    Which one should I get? (Bare in mind that I am currently on MetroPCS)

    Specs wise the Huawei phone seems a little better but there isn't a huge difference between them.

    I guess it depends on how you feel about Metro's service so far but barring that they have terrible signals or spotty service in your area I would stick with them and the Esteem.

    When I am at my house I can barley get a 1 bar signal at my house and I am not in a 4G area, but when i'm not at my house I get a great signal and 4G areas are less than 20 minutes away from my house.

    Hmm in that case I'd probably go for Cricket then if they have good coverage.

    If you're not in a 4G area and have to venture 20 minutes away to use it then that's not going to take advantage of the phone all that much. I mean, I suppose you can get by on 1x but that would be a little pointless given that there are other cheaper devices that get by on it just fine.

    LG > Huawei x20

    Seriously, there brand is so unreliable. With all there phones.

    Like really, if there able to include all those for $300.00 1.4, 2gb internal, 8mp, flash, 1900 mah battery ... they had to cut the corners somewhere to still make there device profitable at $300.00.

    possibly cheap touch screens that stop touching, or cheap charging ports that stop charging, possible over heatage causing white and blank screens.

    The phone will be subsidized like the Indulge... Metro buys them and sells them cheaper so people will buy them and stay on with metro so they make their money back.

    Honestly, even though that Glory sounds good, Cricket doesn't even have smartphone plans.. and I am still being capped at 1000 minutes, I'd stay with Metro get my unlimited everything and call that a day.

    look at it this way, the esteem will be 4g and be on the $50 or $60 plan, the glory is 3g, running maybe 1.2mb/s and its what $55?
