What people are saying
Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've had it for nearly 4 years, OK. Chrome browser is great. Good phone. Camera is not the greatest, needs good light, blurs easily. 4 1/2 stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Is there a compass app? I read this phone has a digital compass but cannot seem to make it work. Reach out to me if it matters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bang for the buck... Picked one of these up at Family Dollar for ten bucks -- some type of clearance sale. I'm an Android Developer and wanted the device strictly for development purposes (rooting, bootloader unlocking, kernel modding, etc.) Straight out of the box, this phone has impressive specs. The stock Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS is extremely responsive and smooth, with a balance between power and performance provided by the Snapdragon 210 quad-core Cortex-A7 processor. This baby clocks at 1.1 GHz, with multitasking an ease with the ample 1.5 GB RAM. (Budget smartphones almost always have 1 GB RAM or less, so 1.5 GB is both surprising and a huge bonus) The Snapdragon X5 LTE cellular modem is rated at a very adequate Cat 4 -- with download speeds of up to 150 Mbps, upload speeds at 50 Mbps. Calls are always crystal clear, and the integrated cellular antenna seems to hold a strong cellular signal. Last not least, the integrated and dedicated Adreno 304 graphics processor (GPU) allows for moderate gaming with no lag or overheating. I would recommend this device to anyone pondering on a great budget smartphone. These devices are typically $40 to $50 -- sometimes a bit more -- and they are worth every penny. An exceptional budget smartphone exclusively by Verizon Wireless.
