Brightside 256MB (Verizon)

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pretty good for a not-smart phone Full screen menu-driven like a smart phone. All the features you expect in a feature phone and a decent camera. The menus could be a little easier to navigate. Even locked, when I bend over it hits just the right spots to "butt-dial" someone. Battery lasts for days - another advantage of it NOT being a smart phone. Overall, it's a great phone for the price. May 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent texting entry phone model My wife and I both have this phone. It is our first texting phone feature phone. We both were hold outs with the old clam shell type phone. This phone is a great first step up from the old clam shell style with the slide out keyboard and full touch screen. The touch screen is great as well and a good first step into that style of phone. Can customize the settings with the shortcuts for functions that you use often and want easy access on the front screen. The phone does have options for a data plan but we have not activated that feature yet. May 19, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not bad for entry level modern mobile phone Have had it for 1 day so far. I like the smartphone-like screen and interface. Since it allows up to 32GB memory storage with optional MicroSD card, I was hoping I could use it to record and store decent video clips. This is where the unit falls WAY short. The resolution is a minimal 176x144 pixels and cannot be improved. Frame rate is 15fps (typical), aspect-ratio is 1.222; bit rate is ~100Kbps (lousy); codec format is MPEG-4 (.3g2); audio is 14Kbps at 8,000 Hz.; but the WORST thing is the time limit of 30 seconds max. Considering the terrible video quality of the image, maybe 30 seconds is all that's needed. The camera does well for shooting stills, but for videos it's useless. I've seen FAR better results from other mobile & smartphones. The Brightside is decent in its price range as a mobile phone, but as a media recording device it's very primitive. April 6, 2014
