Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent for the price I get the phone as a gift two years ago, and I really love it, the display, battery, functionality, everything works all right. First I really think that was a next generation smartphone, but it does not, so for the basics I really like it. The only thing i didn't like, was the camera but still it have not dissaponted me, I still use it, and I think is the smartphone that had lived more.
