I thought there would never be a day that I would give up my keyboard for a touch screen. I’m not sure what finally convinved me, if it was my husband, or Windows or what but I finally switched to the touch screen. Doing this review of the NEC Terrain, I DO NOT WANT a keyboard back.
This phone is for those that like a keyboard and need a phone that can be dropped in the snow, water, concrete you name it it will work. I mean, it’s the phone for me the accident prone to break any phone that enters my hand, but I really don’t like this phone. I don’t like the version of Android that it runs, there really nothing that I like about this phone. But to be fair I’m going to show you some of the features:
