Summary: I have had this phone for a little over a year now. I am going to upgrade, but I haven't decided if I'm going to stay with VM or not so I've been putting it off. If you enjoy getting the message, "[program] isn't responding, would you like to close it?" every.single.time you open the browser or an app, then this is the phone for you. This phone locks up on me and restarts at least once a day. Many times it doesn't even work as a phone.
Summary: So the reason for buying the phone is because it was cheap so I understand you get what you pay for and this phone is a prime example of that saying. I've had it since February and as of the middle of March it started giving me problems. Such as: - Charges quickly but dies twice as fast - Freezes for minutes at a time, even without multiple applications or programs simultaneously running.
Summary: I've had mine for less than a year and it's borderline unusable. Browser constantly crashes, phone calls cannot be answered at times, spontaneous reboots, poor call quality, poor wifi/data speeds, etc . Even at $30.00 it's just not worth it.
Summary: I purchased this phone to replace a three year old LG Optimus V running Android 2.3. I had very low expectations given the bargain basement price point, and even with the bar set low, absolutely none of those expectations were met. This "smart" phone featured one third of the available memory of the older Optimus, a noticeably slower processor (despite promises of faster speed), an inferior camera and a complete inability to run more than one app at a time.
Summary: When I wanted a cheap0priced smartphone, I thought this would be the one one for me. I didn't want an expensive samsung, or an HTC, and so on. I thought, "Wow! I only paid thirty dollars for this! This is a wonderful deal!" How wrong was I! the first few weeks I received the dumb thing, it kept turning itself on and off; this happened everyday! Now it won't even boot, it's stuck on the EVENT by Kyocera image then it goes to the "android system recovery" page.
Summary: I had the phone for about 2 months before it started dying. Battery wouldnt hold charge, and phone would run painfully slow even when all apps were removed and/or updated. Would not let me answer or make calls. Wouldnt send pictures or receive after the first month, and dont get me started on the camera. Finally gave up and bought a Galaxy... Kyocera Event...worst phone I've bought...
