Failed after 7 months

Summary: Nor a bad dual sim phone for the money. The on/off switch failed after 7 months and is currently at the Sony/USA repair faciliy. I am surprised they took it back as Sony give one of the worse after sales service. Bad experience with my Vaio which I vowed never to buy Sony again. We shall see how this pans out.
Summary: Its extremely small so maybe not for large hands! I had bought this unlocked phone but the voicemail settings were in Spanish! I still have not figured out how to change it to English! Anyone know how please let me know...otherwise the phone is not bad. The speakers are very loud so the music is good. Camera is horrible don't even bother taking any pictures..no flash!
Summary: If you have small hands or small fingers, then this might work for you. I don't do a lot of texting, but whenever I do it is very challenging, to say the least. Very small and compact. Camera sucks, but phone is ok. I should have went for the dual sim version.
Summary: I got this phone when mine crapped out on me, and I didn't have the money to get anything decent. Used it for over a year.. Pros: Cheap, android jelly bean, expandable memory Cons: Small screen, too slow for games, hard to text with, no LTE support I had a problem where it would stop sending my messages, and I'd have to restart the phone to get it to send texts again. This phone is very small, probably less than 5 inches.
Summary: It's not a terrible smart phone; especially for the price and features. However after 4 months the display started to have issues. Now there is a dime sized area that is far brighter than the surrounding areas.
Summary: The data would not function no matter what I did, the phone is teeny for my huge hands (my fault for not checking dimensions), there is no flash that I can find for pictures so pics turn out horrible. No autofocus, focuses only on things very far away and nowhere near the lens. I would suggest finding something different. this wasn't worth the money as anything but an emergency call phone.
Summary: I bought a Tipo for a backup phone. I set it up and ran it on Simple Mobile. The phone was pretty fast I had 3g and 3g+ speeds. I deal breaker is the on/off button, it's small and flush, have to use the tip of your fingernail. Too bad, otherwise nice little unit.
Summary: I love the dual sim capability, as i travel a lot. Its processing power limits the power of android, but no high-end phones are available on dual sim, so this is probably the best choice if you really need the dual sim. I recommend to download some kind of memory optimizer ofrcleaner, as you may not notice that a lot of apps are runining in the background.
Summary: Its not what you see on the screen; the phone texture looks like a toy. however the feature listed appears good. I am not sure if its worth the money but i liked it as it looked cute as a toy.
