What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from MEMORY You can only use internal memory and it cannot be ungraded for apps. You can buy a memory card but it only can be used for things like photos and sound recordings. It does creates a VIRTUAL sdcard. Which means when you select an app to be saved to an sdcard, it will still be saved to internal memory and takes up your valuable space. Memory card in phone needs to be bigger, or allow apps to be saved to an external SDCARD.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone, internal memory not so great If you plan to store lots of pictures or download lots of apps...you would need to get a phone with more internal memory. I bought an extra memory card and I cant figure out how to be able download more apps to store on that memory card... other than that, this is an awesome phone! I don't even use a computer to go on the internet anymore...I'm able to use this phone to access the web
