What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good basic smartphone I bought this as a second phone to use local SIMs in other countries, it has been used in many places and gives me email, navigation, phone etc. Bit slow for an every day device but great for what I needed at the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheap phone on disguise It was the cheapest Android 4.0 with a good sized screen on market. Runs all most apps I need and the battery lasts one or two days without a problem. The biggest drawbacks are the screen and the processor. The screen, despite being big, has a very low resolution for its size, I can see the pixels from a considerable distance and small text becomes unreadable. Contrast and viewing angles are horrible, sometimes I have to keep tilting the phone up and down until I can see something. I got seriously disappointed with this screen, specially coming from LG, known to make some of the best LCDs on the market. The phone also gets unresponsive easily and takes a long time to do simple tasks. Sometimes it takes over 30 seconds to open the dialer or the messaging and up to a minute to view pictures or open the camera. Multitasking is hardly possible. Google maps is usable, but needs patience. Same for email, calendar and social apps. I don't use it for games, but also don't expect it to handle anything that is graphic intensive. The build quality is good and it does have a premium look and feel. Call quality is not bad. The camera does take decent pictures if enough light is available. It is still a capable smartphone for its price, but there might be better options, even if they do not look as good, they may still offer better usability.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product is a waste of money This mobile is okay only if you want to call or text, memory is awful in terms of apps, have to delete twitter for snapchat, and vice-versa, for example. There are so many other useless apps that can't be uninstalled such as Maps, Google Books, talk, voice recorder, polaris viewer, place, latitude etc. and also impossible to move apps onto a memory card and only few apps can be move into 'internal memory'.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst phone ever Keeps locking up. if more the one app is running, it keeps sending you back to the homescreen. And even the homescreen and the menu takes about a minute to load. Also if you receive a call while the battery is low, it simply will not let you answer. My LG cookie was of better quality then this piece of garbage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from slow processer, works fine if just kept default The processer is slow, the phone freezes if there are too many apps, or you cannot make a call, screen goes black when hanging up after the call, so touch screen cannot be seen to end call.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performance Priced Right I travel quite a bit and needed an unlocked phone with decent features at a reasonable price point. This phone turned out to be much more than I bargained for. It looks great externally and has a quality build. Ice Cream Sandwich is an up to date OS so you don't feel you are using an outdated machine in anyway. Some reviews complain about the screen resolution, but honestly it has no impact on me. I can read and see things fine. The camera works great and this phone is seamlessly linked to all my social networks. And the best part is that it is unlocked and is quad-band so I can use it in any country in the world. I paid $200 for it in Panama and I would buy it all over again.
