What people are saying
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the hassles This phone started working great when I first got it--about more than a year ago. Internet is nice, and most apps work great. However, what started to annoy me is that the buttons on the screen randomly stopped working and I had to press it repeatedly with the one next to it in order for it to work again. The keyboard had glitches all the time--when I went to write a message, the keyboard would come up but it wouldn't let me type, and I had to exit it out and wait a while for it to let me send a message. I always had to turn it off and then back on because apps decided not to work or the internet was acting funny, but it usually worked after that. I've dropped it many times and it has never once broken and the only damage is a few dents in the side. The storage is awful-- I had to limit the amount of apps I had, music and the amount of pictures. Battery was awful--just by sitting in my pocket all day, it would die even if I didn't use it. If it was connected to the Wi-Fi, the battery would be a little better, but not by much. I would have to charge it twice a day, and even turning it off expelled energy. What else, it doesn't have a front facing camera so it makes wanting to video chat impossible--unless you just hold it up to a mirror. Just last week, however, my phone died in the middle of the day, and when I got back home to plug it in, it wouldn't turn back on, even if I plugged it in, it was stuck in a boot loop, which was quite annoying. I managed to figure out how to reset the phone, and it worked a couple of hours, but making Force Close windows pop up out of no where, so I had to keep turning it off, but eventually it wouldn't turn on and broke indefinitely. This seems to be a common occurrence with this type of phone. I'd say you could get a better phone than this one that will last much longer and won't have these kind of malfunctions. With the amount of hassles this phone has caused me, I do not recommend this phone. *Screen reacts well *Apps work well even without Wi-fi *Sound is bad on calls, otherwise it is good *Had some problems with YouTube, Twitter *Dropped it in water, soaked in rice for couple hours, still worked *Constantly have to force close apps and then restart

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Phone I have ever owned ! I started using cell phones after the pager was popular ! This phone is quantum leaps ahead of any phone that I have ever owned !!! I have owned over a hundred different models ! I was helping a friend with her car and accidently lost my last phone that I thought was a great phone too , But it had to be replaced ! I could have bout many others but this had the most features for the money so I took a chance and upgraded my life in the process ! It can do almost any thing . Good cameras (video and still , Great flash ! ) Fast internet , face book , texting and other message opportunity ! Thanks again for a great phone !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone for the price This phone is a great product for the price. If you want all phone with a the bells and whistles, this is not for your. But if you need a phone to talk, text and surf the web, it's great. It's also great to use as an MP3 player.
