Question
Is this phone better than the HTC One V?
I am trying to decided between this phone and the HTC one, if you can help me that would be great! So far I feel like the HTC ONE V would be better. Anyone who has had the HTC ONE in the past if you could help me out in this decision that would be great

HTC ONE V has Flash. Reverb does not and is not compatible with Flash. Due to that I will be returning my Reverb

Sorry, no. Look for "Daily Mobile Hotspot" on the FEATURES & SPECS tab. Virgin Mobile occasionally changes their phones, devices and plans.

► You need the following to create a Mobile Hotspot via Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11):

1. One of the Beyond Talk plans ($35, $45, or $55 per month)
2. The $15 per month OR $5 per day Hotspot option in your Virgin Mobile account
3. One of these Beyond Talk phones:
(uses 3G network only) Apple iPhone 4s, Kyocera Event
(uses 4G LTE and 3G networks) HTC Desire, Kyocera Hydro Vibe, LG Optimus F3, LG Volt, Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy SIII,
Samsung Galaxy Victory

Log into your account. [MANAGE MY ACCOUNT at the top of this page.] On the Account Overview tab click on 'Change My Plan'. From there you can
see the plans and options that are available for your phone.

Question
Is the Samsung Reverb a SDXC flash memory device.

The manual reports the device is an MicroSD/ MicroSDHC device, but also list that the phone will accept 64GB cards, which are MicroSDXC type Flash memory. SDHC cards go up to a maximum Size of 32GB, SDXC have a theoretical max size of 2TB (2048GB). or do you think the 64GB statement was a typo (Now I feel like my friend's retired electrical engineer dad)

Unfortunatly, no though it's at a 1.4 GHz processor single core, which is plenty fast especially in the prepaid market. I have the Evo V which has a 1.2 GHz dual core. I hope this helped a bit and please let me know if u get the phone and like it :)

In quick short answer form,

It's screen is .3 smaller then the EVO and it's not as blocky and fits a bit better in your hand, as well only SLIGHTLY smaller in size. Also the slight curve point of the Reverb makes it a comfortable fit in your hand instead of a straight line. Also
