Pros: Low price, Bright dsiplay, Sturdy design, Micro-SD card slot, The acceptable build quality and the bright display.
Cons: Quality of the materials, Display resolution, Camera produces mediocre pictures, Colors are not very vivid., A higher display resolution is on top of our list. A better webcam would also be nice.

Pros: Dirt Cheap, Good battery life
Cons: Sluggish performance, Low quality display, Heavy in weight, Bland design
