Disappointment

I have three problems with this phone:

First, the cellular coverage of the companies that are cooperating with project Fi, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular, do not have as extensive network coverage as Verizon and AT&T, at least in my area. I had to switch back to Verizon as a carrier.

Second, the auto answer option on the phone application has disappeared. I liked to use this when I used a Bluetooth earpiece so that the phone would answer without me having to touch anything.

Third, the option to have notification for text messages repeat at a given interval until the text is read is also absent.

Some of the bells and whistles are cute. Some of the graphics, like the tiles of favorites in the phone application and the garish colors used in the messaging application are pretty ugly.

I will keep it till it breaks, but I don't think I'll be sorry to see it go.
