Figo Virtue 3 Review
Reviewed on Friday February 24, 2017 by Todd G, Hamilton, ON Canada
I recently purchased and unlocked Figo Virtue 3 from a local 7eleven store for $79.95. You can purchase this as a stand-alone prodcut or with cell time, messaging and data through SpeakOut Wireless Canada (utilizing Rogers Wireless towers). Rates are about .25 cents per minute with the following noteworthy extras available at the time of purchasing the Virtue 3: when you purchase a $50 top up airtime voucher you receive $20 off the price of the cell (airtime and cellphone cost combined) or receive $25 off the cell phone and an additional $30 off the total bill including cell airtime. This brings the cost of the cellphone to $49.95 and $100 airtime to $70.00. In my opinion there are NO other cellphones even close to the Virtue 3 with its features and performance for this price!
The Virtue 3 is unlocked from the factory and required NO additional OTA software downloads or apps in order to take advantage of any of its features. It also has DUAL SIM card slots that work without any difficulties. Android 6.0 Marshmallow is a charm and a nice refinement to its predecessors. Time to boot up and shut down is super fast. Best I've tested to date! Battery charge time and life are also, for the size of battery and overall weight of cellphone is the best overall respectively I've used to date as well.
My reasoning for using two SIM cards is two-fold. I can run two cell numbers with one cellphone (personal line and business line combined in one) and if my primary smaller service provider's service is down, running sluggish or I'm in a non-4G service area I can take advantage of SpeakOut's service that should be up and running without any issues. Consider that SpeakOut's minutes "rollover" for up to ONE YEAR (unheard of in prepaid minute plans). I think of paying an extra $50 to get my cellphone for $59.95 as an annual cell service quasi-insurance plan. Two thumbs up for the Figo Virtue 3 along with SpeakOut Wireless!
