dont look at its plastic design and rather cheap look in working with this device your holding a smooth and very powerful device totally worth the price go for it guys
I owned this phone for about 16 hours, of which I spent quite a few tinkering with it, before returning it. I've only owned android smartphones previously, but had a sprint upgrade and wanted a phone that was a) not enormous, and b) less than $100. This was the only option available at the time in the store.
The plastic casing is definitely a step down from the metal bodies, but it doesn't feel cheap or flimsy. The phone is pretty sleek (although actually less sleek than the 5s and a lot of other new phones) and attractive and comfortable to hold. The screen is good, images are clear, sensitivity and touch location accuracy are very good.
The phone lost me on 1) the user interface, and 2) the poor networking functionality.
The iOS user experience feels extremely dated, restrictive, and muddled. Essentially, the entire UI of iOS is like the "Apps" folder on an Android device: just columns of application icons taking up as many pages as you have apps. The attempt to add widget-like apps in the drop menu feels primitive. Very little meaningful customization of the desktop and user experience is possible.
Using the device to access and transfer files from other devices (particularly desktop/laptop computers) is unnecessarily difficult and expensive. The only "convenient" way to transfer files is via itunes (which only quite recently even added wireless syncing), which you must actively run on both devices in order to transfer files. Other methods require obscure work arounds, frequently requiring active file transfer management from the host computer (e.g. opening a transfer IP address in web browser and adding files to the phone from the computer). For $4-6 you can purchase applications that will allow direct connection to computers on a shared network and transfer data to the phone. However, because of the "walled garden" OS approach, this data is not accessible to relevant applications (e.g. mp3 files cannot be found by iTunes, EZMP3, or your other third-party music app of choice), and you can only open your files with the viewers/players built into that application.
Contrast this with an Android device where it is easy to procure a free application that will find devices on a common smb network, allow you to navigate the computer's shared file system, and transfer data to desired locations on the device which will be accessible to appropriate applications.
I like the hardware for the money, I just wish it wasn't burdened with iOS.

Reina, 19 Jan 2014Between iphone 5 and 5c , which one is better ?iPhone 5
dont ever buy iphone it is a bad phone with a great look. they anounce it like the best smartphone out there but its not. its just a piece of plastic wich costs 500 euros. there are MUCH better phones for a lower price, like the nexus five (actually it is the best smarphone and it is much cheaper than others that are worse)
