When it comes to specs, the T-Mobile Revvl runs Android 7.0 Nougat on a 5.5-inch HD display. It’s got 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, a quad-core MediaTek MT6738 processor, and 2GB of RAM, There’s 32GB of storage included, but there’s also a microSD slot so you can add more storage if you’d like.

        For $120, how exactly has this failed to live up to your expectations? Maybe you’re asking too much of a device meant for people on a budget?

        • mreveryphone

          I played with the phone and it couldn’t even open/close chrome or get in and out of the camera app without freezing… Maybe a software update will fix that but I wouldn’t spent my $125 on something that can’t even execute basic tasks…

        • Bklynman

          I play with one yesterday,had no problem with closing the camera app or chrome,not saying you are lieing,maybe it the floor model they had out,what the reviews I read on midlevel or lower tier phones it is hit or miss with them. I wouldn’t any new phone until I read reviews on it.

        • Acdc1a

          A Snapdragon 427 wouldn’t have the lag and could probably have been had for only slightly more money.

    • Acdc1a

      MediaTek :(

        I was reading the specs like yeah! Yeah! Yeah! And nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! When it said mediatek. So close!!!!!!!!

  • NardVa

    If the phone had 3GB of ram it would be just right for a mid-level phone. I wouldn’t recommend any phone without at least 3GB minimum.

    • Iphart

      This is $120!

  • Joseph Bekin

    My wife’s Galaxy J7 has been taking a crap lately, this might be a decent replacement for her.

    • Andrew Singleton

      definitely not the quality level of the J7. you’d be safer with Stylo 3 or the new J7.

      • Romdude

        Yeah, the Stylo 2 plus was a good cheap phone with a stylus.

    • George Salcedo

      What’s going on with her J7? My brother’s lags big-time now. Samsung doesn’t seem to care much about their mid range devices

      • Joseph Bekin

        Yes the same thing, keeps lagging and bogging down. Factory reset it and only helped for a little while.

        • TmoRepNLovingIt

          Try a different launcher. The touchwiz launcher on the j7 sucks for some reason

      • MadJoe

        That’s exactly it, Samsung couldn’t care less about anything not the Galaxy S or Note.

      • TmoRepNLovingIt

        Try downloading and using a 3rd party home launcher.

    • TmoRepNLovingIt

      I deal with the J7 on a daily basis and I’ve found that the stock TouchWiz launcher on that particular device seems to be the cause of a lot of it’s issues. Try downloading a different home launcher and see it that helps.

    A 2017 Mytouch Fender edition needs to make a comeback…

    • douglas futrell

      I remember wanting that phone so bad! Oh the early days of android

      • mreveryphone

        IKR! It’s definitely come a long way

    Does it have 600 MHz band 71?

    • Jason Caprio

      Quad Band GSM
      LTE: 66, 2, 4, 5, 12
      UMTS: Band II (1900), Band IV (1700/2100), Band V (850), Band VIII (900)

      No Band 71. This device will be 3 years old by the time 600MHz is widely deployed. You won’t see band 71 devices becoming mainstream for at least another year.

      • Jay Holm

        For at least another year, huh? Are you Neville Ray, T-Mobile’s CTO?

        • Jason Caprio

          Yes, according to their animated timeline video, “Phase 1” will not be complete until November 2018. The entire rollout won’t be complete until 2020. That’s why I don’t understand why people are so hell-bent on Band 71 support when it is only going to be in very few areas within the next couple years.

        • Jay Holm

          That is in reference to network deployment. Not phones launching with the capability. T-Mobile already stated that a phone will launch with support for 600mhz this year, and likely will phones with support for 600mhz will become more and more common going forward in 2018.

  • pda96

    The MediaTek MT6738 is equivalent to a Snapdragon….what?? 400 series?

  • jdubb2600

    This is a phone for a kid in middle school. i know what my son will be getting

  • AS118

    For $125, that’s not bad at all. The storage isn’t skimpy either. Given that I’ve seen more expensive insurance deductibles for fairly old phones, I’d say it’s worth getting a phone like that just as a cheap backup.
