Despite being an entry-level device, the Comet ships with Android 2.2 and offers full wireless options. You also get a 3.2-megapixel camera, and the phone offers great call quality.

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.

Picture quality

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