Excerpt: I upgraded to this phone from my old school flip phone. it was a good deal and ive had it for over a year. I bought it to see if i really needed to upgrade to the more expensive data plans. it turns out i do...... I love having all the apps at my disposal!......if only this phone was worth more than i paid for it (0$) after a year of this thing I upgraded to the S5. and wholly crap the difference. if i ever looked at that phone again it would probably give me a headache.
Pros: small, light weight, super durable, cheap as dirt (i think it was free w/ rebate), ringer is super loud
Summary: This is a horrible product. It freezes when you try to answer a phone call, it turns off by itself, not very much memory, not really worth to spend your money!. Save your money and buy something that isn't worthless and that actually works!
Excerpt: What a shame that phones this bad still exist in the age of Android 4.0. Upgraded to this after my Optimus One became essentially unusable, and was dissapointed with what I got. Low resolution screen, bad camera, no front camera, slow processor, barely any RAM (even less than the outdated Optimus One), and measly 1300 mAh battery. Even ICS couldn't save this thing. Slow and cheap, with a pathetic battery.
Pros: ICS, Decent built in storage for such a cheap phone
Cons: Ridiculously bad battery life, Not enough RAM to run anything, Slow processor, Slow UI, Bad camera
Excerpt: I've had this phone for about half a year and it's pretty terrible. The phone is constantly crashing and freezing. The screen sometimes will refuse to turn on as well. I haven't used it much for calling so I really can't tell how good the quality of that is.
Excerpt: This phone camera has no autofocus, no front camera, as it states in the specs.However the manual states it has a light sensor numbered 11 in the diagram in the manual, if you download the manual you can see it says that. If it is a light sensor it doesn't work cause no apps detect it.
Summary: Nice phone but the lack of a manual of any kind makes a frustrating experience to start using it immediately. Some of the functions are non-intuitive. Once one goes over the initial difficulties, it's a good phone.
