What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from GPS doesn't work, proximity sensor failed I liked this phone, until I realized that nothing I did would make the GPS accurate. If you need a GPS, this is not the phone for you. As I usually use Google Maps or Here Maps to navigate large, unfamiliar cities on foot, a GPS that consistently located me 3 miles or so away from my actual location was unacceptable. Swype also failed on this device, causing shutdowns. And, the proximity sensor stopped working, so I have to turn off the screen manually before placing it to my ear to avoid unintentional dialing or hanging up during a call. The good? It's pretty speedy, the battery life is good, and the screen looks nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The product has Great Storage and Nice Features This product when I first got it was worth what I paid for it. This product has great storage, a nice design, good features, and it's 4g. I've had it for over a year now and the main issue is that it's running a lot slower than before.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from People can't hear me and it doesn't scan media fil This phone was purchased less than 3 months ago and I have to put the phone on speaker for people to hear me. The phone won't scan media file either. The phone is very fast but it's annoying when people can't hear me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Phone with Poor GPS I've had this phone for 6 months and it generally performs well. I like the camera and the screen size. But if you use your phone for GPS, don't buy this one. The GPS is very slow to locate your position and when it does, it is not accurate. It's usually at least 500 feet from where you actually are located. I recommend this product as long as you understand its limitations.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Phone With A Few Drawbacks Phone quality is great and it streams music flawlessly even in places where I typically loose cell service. The output sound volume when connected to an external speaker is weak and the GPS doesn't work well at all.Still a good phone overall at a very affordable price
