Spaceman's 2 Cents:
I actually own this phone. I got it specifically for the designated PTT button and the fact that you can drop this phone in a creek, and it should be fine. This phone was built like a protective case with a phone inside.
What I like: * a designated PTT button. * Good "walkie talkie" sound* built like a tank* Screen and Camera isn't bad at all. Not quite samsung quality, but still very nice* Very affordable phone* Love how the finger print scanner is part of the power button. * There's actually a barometer built into the phone. What's great about this is you can use it to be able to tell how far above sea level you are without the use of the internet.
What I DON'T like:* Wish the PTT button was a tad wider* Can't force 3G when 4G tower is bogged down
