Sprint Force Review
The good: The Sprint Force has 4G LTE, is competitively priced, and has NFC.
The bad: The Force's photo and speaker audio quality are poor, and the touch screen is difficult to view in sunlight.
The bottom line: With its already spotty camera and call quality, the Sprint Force can't outpace the number of other Sprint handsets that are just as inexpensive.
