mine just conked off a few days back... suddenly one morning my thigh begins burning and i find that the phone in my pocket has become too hot near the recent apps key. i can't even hold it ... the screen doesn't come on and holding down the power switch has no effect. Since the battery is totally sealed, it couldn't even be removed. finally the temperature reduced on its own but the phone was dead. Service center guys say mother board short circuit has to be replaced ( and the price quoted was 9k since the battery is attached). apparently this is a common problem http://forum.xda-developers.co...p?t=2286478. even when it was working it was pathetic. apps closing on their own, takes extremely long to load the phone book or dial a no., browser closing whenever a heavy page is loading, for a few days bluetooth wouldn't switch on at all and needed OS reinstallation to correct the prob. Overall a very unworthy phone... poor performance and very unreliable (i had to replace the screen in 6 months cuz the bottom of the screen stopped responding.. thankfully that got done under warranty).

Very slow. Takes time to dial calls, open gallery. Hangs all the time. Some time Sim is not detected. Have to restart very often or reset to factory defaults. Moreover Customer service is worse.

Let me just correct the guys here blobbing about this phone. First of all, the phone has 512MB of RAM and a single-core 1GHz processor. Based on that info, and the fact that I still use it 2 years after its launch, tells something. Tells that this phone is great for everyday use of any kind. I'm not a 3G user, but have WiFi ON all day and the battery life is pretty decent (18-25 hours - with processor constantly OC-ed to 1.5 GHz).

I have a custom ROM installed on it (JB 4.1.2) and just with a 1 minute tweak of processor overclocking and minfree settings.

Camera is more than decent, produces some wonderful shots, even HDR. So before you start talking trash about this phone, first make sure you understand Android and you know how to use it.

Just... Stay away from this... This... I don't think the title of 'phone' should be something this is allowed to be called. Seriously, I've had this phone for just over 2 years. Just after six months, it would have difficulty loading contact information, sending, and receiving texts. I've been waiting 28 minutes to load a text from my girl friend and have since had to call her on another phone just to tell her mine was being a heaping pile of un reliable, unresponsive, steaming pile of goat shit. I've downloaded 2 games , and 3 backgrounds. I realized an important message through buying this phone, and that message is that you shouldn't buy the cheaper alternative. There is a reason that it is a cheaper alternative, and that is because it is made of crappier material, hardware, software, and anything else that I didn't include. The only quality of this phone is that it's light, and slim, but that doesn't make up for the fact that it won't function after a few months. I'd rather be using the LG keybo I used all through high school. I bought this phone with minimal expectations, but it should at least function. All I do is talk, text and play big 2 on it, maybe google something occasionally, and it can't handle that. I apologies for the vulgar, but it was necessary to communicate my point

> In reply to Searchingphones @ 2014-04-29 13:16 from fxNb - click to read100% agree... I made a system restore several times but no change from a long-term perspective. Once you install several apps that require running in a background and syncing, the phone drastically slows down so it's hard to use even a text messaging...

Not a good phone at all...everything is far too slow to load especially messages and the phone part of it sometimes refuses to work at all plus the battery drains down so fast that one charge only lasts 2 hours now after having the phone for only a year! It's pathetic!

For the first few months... the phone is okay... perform pretty good... Subsequently, the phone lag. Whatsapp takes at least a min to load. Contacts keep hanging... phone keep sending error reports. Battery depleting faster and faster to the extent that when u on ur phone plus data, it can finished within 30mins. It's lousy
