What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This phone is so mediocre and basic, and SLOW!!!! I've had this phone for more than a year, and throughout the time I've had it, its been slow with its lack of RAM, and i could barely download apps due to its little amount of storage. And this phone is supper slow, I do not recomend

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing but problems with this phone I got this phone almost a year ago and Ive had alot of issues. It will shut itself down for no apparent reason. The voice to text is in my settings but it will not let me use it. It constantly freezes on me it will not allow me to calibrate it and when i make phone calls, the phone will put the call on hold even though my face is not touching the screen.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Its a nice phone It's a decent phone to have, but it has problems here and there. It has the worst memory problem I've seen and the speed on even chrome just goes slow. I wouldn't really recommend it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from no storage space! Even after adding a micro sd card, there is too much on the phones internal storage that you can't delete the data or transfer to sd card.. so even to get a new application to the sd card, phone storage is too full to temporarily download. As long as you don't need to download any apps, storage was my only issue with this phone!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lacks Internal Memory This phones biggest set back is the limited amount of internal memory. You can't have more than two or three apps. That is not realitic and very frustrating. Do not recommend.
