Design

The T-Mobile Comet features a compact, lightweight design and measures just 4.09 inches tall by 2.16 inches wide by 0.54 inch thick and 3.6 ounces.

The phone feels solid in the hand, but unfortunately, the plastic piece covering the navigation array at the bottom started peeling off on our review unit.

Picture quality

Picture quality was a bit dull and grainy, but images came out relatively clear and outdoor shots were better.
