The telephone itself was not bad for the price, but their assistance is ridicolous, I have tried to install the voice control and since then the telephone just shows a sad smiley, it is completely useless, cannot reset hardware either, so consider careful this if you are thinking about buying one, or just pray that nothing will never happen.

The battery drains too fast, its not what I was made to believe before I bought the phone at 570 GHANA CEDIS which is hard to come by for a poor teacher like me. The problem probably is because the phone will not go off while on charge, if a phone does not go off while on charge it doesn't charge well.

don't buy this phone. Huawei has no program to upgrade this phone. I have it. Microsoft solved some problem and add some feature by updating WP8, but hardware is very old and updating is impossible.

I took it to the store since it´s in the guarateed. They replaced the screen.
Don´t bother to use those programs to recover dead pixels because they won´t do anything in this case ( I´ve try them).
