What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't buy I have had nothing but trouble with this phone. It started out OK but then things started to go wrong. Right now I have to try a factory reset because Facebook and Messenger will not work. It keeps telling me app unavailable I also get a message that says "unfortunately Google Pay Store has stopped" which means I cannot download or update anything. Safe yourself the hassle and buy a different phone

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Can't locate "settings" . No manual available. Phone gets hot after very short use. Unresponsive and unreliable. Must swipe many times. After several days, still unable to turn on Wi-Fi or Voice Mail. Very difficult to use and navigate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Responsive, Deleted Pics Have to swipe multiple times to get screen to notice I'm even alive and swiping at it. This can cause missed calls. Tried to transfer my pics off of it, and it decided to delete all my pics instead. Draw your own conclusions. regretting this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from absolute garbage. You seem to get only certain features... They say memory is expandable, yet there is no option to format an sd card as internal. Further, the virtual keypad constantly hiccups. Nice phone if you don't care about running out of memory or errors in searches and sms.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not enough memory space. It is an ok phone, but it doesn't have enough memory, and my battery drain a little too quick. Not happy right now with this phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good budget smartphone I bought this because my iPhone 4S broke and I had to have a phone. Went into best buy saw it was on sale and tried it out. Peformnce is snappy for the most part and it has all the features you expect from a budget phone. Only complant is the battery takes a while to charge. But for a less than 100 smartphone its amazeing.
