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!.....
Pros: small, light weight, super durable, cheap as dirt (i think it was free w/ rebate), ringer is super loud
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 Low resolution screen, bad camera, no front camera, slow processor, barely any RAM (even less than the outdated Optimus...
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. I would not suggest getting this phone
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: Great product, my son loves this phone! he wanted a smartphone but I didn't want to spend a lot of money or get stuck in a contract, this fits the bill perfectly! Great customer service as well, the charger wasn't working and it was replaced ASAP, thank you!
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.
