This is the absolute worst phone I have ever tried! No matter who you are and what you want to do with it, just DON'T get it, unless you are getting it for "patience training" specifically!

In the first period, it is pretty good. However, after 3 weeks, you will start to get really annoyed.
1-minimal internal memory, and many apps just won't be moved to the SD cards. So, my phone memory is low, when I only have whatsapp, a flashlight app and evernote.
2-It gets VERY laggy and unresponsive. example: I turn the display on, and there is the lock screen. It can take a few seconds for the touch screen to be responsive, and even then it is laggy and the response may break. If you have a pattern code, it can take 5-6 attempts before getting it right because it either won't respond or the response will break. And that's still before doing anything interesting on it. Going to the basic "phone functions". Sometimes, I miss calls because of that same problem. It just doesn't respond till after a while. It won't even end a call directly. Switching from loudspeaker to normal can be a nightmare too. Apps will just force quit because it just can't process them quickly enough. If you need to restart it (which would be very frequent), you could just go grab a bite and come back before it actually starts.
3-Screen response: when writing a message, sometimes I would press "l" and get an "a" for instance. Letters at the other side of the screen, sometimes repeatedly. Sometimes I need to delete letters, and the backspace button would just respond to the time when I pressed it, but not respond to the fact that I released it. Sometimes, I would get on any "writing" app, and it would just vibrate as a sign that it is getting the letters I am pressing, but NOTHING gets written.
4-Sound is really bad, recording is a joke. As a sound engineer, I take it as an insult to sound.
I could go on and on about bad experiences I had with this phone. Got it reset 4 times in a single year...

No matter what you do, just DON'T get near that phone.

Android phone specs were pretty low then.

And since then, there have been better phones
that dont cost too much.

This phone is terrible! I recommend you don't get it. I've had it little over 2 months now and I only download 2 apps and if I download more than 2 I can't read or messages, plus it doesn't let me look at my pictures!! Its terrible, whoever made this needs to get slapped in the face!

I've had the phone for a bit more than one year now, and the biggest problem is that it has a very small internal memory. I have to delete old applications to get a new one and this really is going on my nerves.
And also after just 6 months the phone started to block and doesnt react to anything anymore.
I would never recomment it to anyone.
