The good: The T-Mobile Prism 2 clocked consistent and fast 3G speeds, it's reasonably priced, and its 3.2-megapixel camera takes decent pictures.
The bad: The Prism 2 is slow, with a low-resolution screen and a low call volume, and its camera lacks a flash.
The bottom line: Get the T-Mobile Prism 2 if you want an inexpensive and dependable 3G phone, but skip it if you prioritize speedy performance.
