um guys.. i just wanna ask something, i got this phone through sun plan 450 last month, and i'm extremely annoyed right now 'coz of the problems that this phone is giving me... first off, most of the time, the touch sensor goes crazy on me like it's double clicking or ding triple or quadruple clicking on its own and starts clicking anywhere on my screen, really anooying, second, apps crash frequently like the chrome, gallery, etc... third, mine's only got 2.45gb of internal memory and 413mb of RAM.... seriously?? o.O.. i myself can't even believe it until i downloaded an app and tried to read my phone info.. =_=... yes you heard it right, 413 mb of RAM... not joking... and the internal's extremely small too T.T. 4th, battery is draining like hell... no apps are running and i made sure of that b4 making it sleep, then after 30 mins the battery went crashing downhill from 100 % to only 71%, like what the F***??... and when i tried playing music, the battery consumption decreased drastically, this is while playing music okay??.. 1 % lasts for 7 - 8 mins.. lowest brightness and max volume... *puzzled* i mean, isn't it supposed to be the other way around?...
so um... err... is it still possible to get a replacement unit for this one??.. replacement or change??... 'coz it's over a month now :/

Hi,

I am using this phone from last 1 year, it has lots of issues, sucks, restarts frequently, my view is HOPELESS & USELESS about this phone.

If any one wants to root this phone contact me on abhijeet186@gmail.com.

Requesting if anyone aware about any Custom ROM available for this phone, please let me know.

Thanks,

This unit became unresponsive after a drop. I guess it dropped from just a foot high and then it's no longer responding to touch. Great. I have to reboot and it'll start working like normal again but as soon as the phone locks/sleeps, It'll no longer respond to touch unless I reboot again. I went to sm southmall yesterday and they referred me to main ctr.

Why do you mislead the people by saying that this phone has good specs? This phone is useless. Just because its cheap doesnt mean you people should buy it. We buy android phones for us to enjoy smart phone features, so with 4 GB (2.4 GB user available) and 512 MB RAM what can you do with it? Nothing!

i think this phone is great as per review on the specs on it.. if you have any bad experience about this phone, maybe its you fault, right? it depends on how you handle the phone. if you have a very nice phone, then you dont know how to handle it? well, you know what i mean. :)

Damn it. I accidentally posted it. Unfinished.
Also, I just realized how much of a dbag I sounded. Sorry.
I am not forcing you to not buy this phone. I am not forcing you to do anything. I am simply stating my judgment.
For me, this phone is $h!+ probably because I've had better experiences with better phones and I guess that made my criteria a little high?

Here's one thing though: this phone is pretty nice for its price. If you have a budget, then this is good for you.

Heh, what I just said kinda contradicts all the previous stuff I said. I'm sorry, I really sounded like a douchebag.

This phone would improve a LOT if someone provided a way for a custom ROOT. Seriously.

Well, that is all. Goodbye.

PLEASE READ. I feel v bad for people who are willing to waste their money on this piece of $h!+, so I am writing this to tell you the truth.

To people who are asking if this phone is good to choose, no. It is not. It's a waste of time and goddamned money. Especially the money.

The phone sucks– if you use it for a certain amount of time it suddenly powers off, no matter what you are doing, to which I still have no idea why. Occasionally, when that happens, the battery gets lowered by 15-25%. Especially when you're charging.

Sometimes it also suddenly rejects to read the SD Card. No matter what you're doing, no matter what time it is, it will suddenly happen. And when that happens, you'll have to power off the device, remove the SD card, then pop it in again. Power on.

And the gallery. God, I hate when this happens. When the device powers off, and you turn it on again, the gallery is reset into NOTHING. No thumbnails, no pictures, nothing. You are lucky if the pictures are still there. I mean, the pictures are still there, but the gallery won't read it. It is incredibly annoying.

Also, after a while of using the device and accumulating pictures the thumbnails of the pictures get all mixed up. Like one picture is supposed to be like this, but on the thumbnail it shows another picture, and if you press it and zoom in it will show the supposed picture. What even.

Currently, I am using ES file explorer/cymera to view my gallery. My camera also doesn't work anymore. It says something about how it cannot connect to the camera.

If you're still having doubts whether to buy it or not, I suggest you read more.

This phone is LAG. Yes, the very definition of lag. I don't even want to talk about lag anymore, it only frustrates me.

The battery gets drained very fast. My brightness is in the lowest setting and yet within less than 1 hour, with a
