I have bought 2 of these phone.
The first unit got rub.
I cant find any cheap phone that is good for gaming so I just decided to buy same model but the white one.
At first the UI doesn't look good.
But after I updated all the apps and software update, it became better.
Fingerprint Scanner is fast, UI is good.
Multi-tasking is also good, switching open apps from another app is good. No Lags at All.
Texting is Fine.
Just don't expect too much for the camera.
Hi i just want ask if anyone of you in the Philippines have been using this for SMS messaging especially for Globe users? Does the signal good for texting specially if you're at home? Thanks

My review after using it for a week:
- Camera is Good
- Sound is not good (lack bass and treble)
- Battery is Great (longer than any smartphone I have used)
- Volume is low
- When I use facebook and scrolling the news feed, I found that the touch screen is oversensitive so when I scroll the newsfeed, I scroll using my finger in a normal way like I use it with my old phone, however I found that the screen scroll much faster than my old phone so I sometimes I always missed the newsfeed because it scroll fast when it shouldn't.
I hope I can clearly give description about my issue. Anyone know how to fix this? I have updated the software though.
i can't understand why sometimes the battery drains so fast (more than 5% in an hour) then later, battery life is long (1% in more than an hour). my phone sometimes heats up even if i'm not using it. it was not like this during my first weeks of using it but suddenly it became like this. can someone help me? i don't know what seems to be the problem.
during my first 2 wks the battery life is very long but now the battery life is constantly changing. i've been constantly monitoring it. one time it lasts for more than 2 days and the next time it wouldn't last for a single day. sometimes it heats up for no apparent reason even if i'm not using it. does anyone know what seems the be the problem?

Miles, 21 Sep 2016Is anyone here got the same problem with this unit same as mine? Last time i had my system upd... morei also encountered your experience in auto-capturing of the camera
is it not about the phone's update maybe your fingerprint option are in "on" mode. I've found out that the features of the fingerprint sensor is not only for unlocking the device but also for answering incoming calls, taking selfies. Kindly check your setting to avoid it.
Is anyone here got the same problem with this unit same as mine? Last time i had my system updated, whenever i have a phone call my camera automatically starts and continuosly capturing photos.
