Frustrating...very poor battery life.
4 December 2013
Summary: If it had a better battery life I wouldn't have had to buy a new phone within a month after this one. I even bought extra batteries thinking that it might be a bad battery but it wasn't the case. I love the features though. Too bad it didn't work out and I'm left with a bunk phone.
Summary: Haven't had this phone for long but on certain days the battery would take a dive and only last about 7 hours. (gps/wifi/etc were OFF) But other times it would last more than 20 hours. This was likely caused by some 3rd party app that can't be uninstalled because they don't allow you root access. After finding the method to root the phone on androidarea51 I was able to quarantine a bunch of the apps and the battery drain issue was no longer an issue.
Pros: Inexpensive, Durable
Cons: uninstallable apps, short battery life because of apps
Excerpt: I want to be able to run several applications simultaneously without lag or massive battery drainage. This phone cannot offer anything close to this so I highly doubt it will meet up to my expectations. If you want to get this phone, definitely check out the tech specs and see if they match your needs. I have a really good feeling that this phone doesn’t so I recommend you just simply ignore this phone all together and stop wasting your time checking it out.
Summary: Do you remember when cell phones ran well despite being three years old, run through the washer several times and dropped down several flights of stairs? I do I remember when I got my first samsung phone. It was a little flip phone but it was durable and the only reason I got a new phone was because have a little flip phone was no longer cool. If you are looking for a phone to last you through the years then you should keep on looking.
Pros: Bright display, Lightweight
Cons: Did not meet expectations, not at all durable
Summary: There is really nothing good I have to say about this phone. The battery never lasts the day, if I use the phone for anything, the battery doesn't last past lunch. There is no radio (I really don't demand a lot of features, but I would have liked this one!) When I play music, the sound interrupts, and there is no speaker, so you can only listed through headphones.
