Summary: I owned and operated my mobile life utilizing a Samsung Galaxy Express for about a year before I decided to cut the "Data Plan Cord" and bravely venture back into the world of the "dumb phone". I could not be happier. I wanted a simple, rugged, strictly talk/text phone and this wonderful piece of machinery has delivered by the boat loads. A few notes as follows....
Summary: I bought this because I absolutely refuse to buy into the "smartphone" monthly billing rape game. I wanted a basic phone with some modern features that was relatively rugged and weatherproof enough to handle getting rained on now and then, that wasn't going to break the bank. So far it has For any other smartphone-ish features I need, I can always use my iPod touch and iPad mini. Wifi hotspots are a dime a dozen these days.
Summary: Have dropped it in water and fallen down the stairs a couple of times. The internet is a problem, since it does not allow for wifi, but I should have read into this before buying. I do have internet service, though, 3G. But screen is so small. It's jot a smartphone I know, and at least I won't kill it like I did with my last pricey samsung. Just needed basic texting and phone. This is it.
Summary: With sparing use, this needs charging once in about 15-20 days- its useful for my motorcycling hobby, so without too much worry, I can carry it in my jacket pockets without having to worry about it going bust. Limited memory and its not loud enough when talking to some soft voiced person at the other end... loud is not loud enough.
Summary: I think that your phone protected for the purposes of tourism , etc. be sure to push, not very bulky, economical. Useful in navigation, radio, flashlight, internet. You can find and install additional software. I installed: Opera Mini 7.1.0 - browser UC Browser_01 9.2.0 - browser R-Radio 0.9.1 - online radio MapNav 4.8.0 - navigation with maps Endomondo 1.4.9 - recording tracks without maps, upload to The absence of website.

Summary: This phone has to be the best I've ever owned. Its small size, long battery life, bright and detailed display, ease of use, and its seamless operation in Europe and So. America was great. Next trip is to Mongolia, will amend this review after that. The vendor was great, package was well packed, I never want a smart phone because of its size, short battery life, expensive service, and uneeded complexity. If I want email, I use my notebook.

Summary: This phone is for my husband who likes things to last forever. After extensive searching, this phone met all of his requirements. It is a sturdy phone that is simple to use. Battery life is VERY good, 4 days without needing to charge. Reception is good, voices sound clear. Texting is a little tedious because it doesn't have a Querty keyboard. This is mostly a talk phone. The flashlight is bright.
