I bought this phone . . is a very fast phone but I have the idea of making the internal memory as sdcard it really sucks because I can't use apps with huge data anyone . . I've tried directory bind but it only works for Samsung phones and the micro sd naming is different from the one thee app recognises,_externalsd vs _ExternalSd as used by the phone in naming the memory card . . I use huge data,so I can't continue using this phone . but is a great phone anyway

I am quite disappointed in the E405. The Wifi signal drops intermittently, even if I am in the same room as the router. As a hotspot, the phone is useless. It takes forever to just load even picture elements in a webpage of my laptop when using my phone as a hotspot. I think the transceiver section is very poor. Also for improvement is the way the phone handles messages sent to either sim. The phone is not really dual-active sim in that at any given time, one sim is designated to place calls and texts. When I reply to a message sent to one sim and I designated the other one as the primary, it will send out thru that other sim. At least with the HTC Desire V, the phone gives a display choice of which sim to send the text message out of. Same goes for calls. You have to switch active sims around. With the HTC Desire V, you have a choice of which sim to place the call out of. I think the new lenovo dual sim phone also has this option.

If you're looking for a phone to act as a duel sim and are not using CDMA networks, this phone is great. I think the bad reviews are from people who expected a duel sim iphone5. I just need it for checking emails and reading books with the occasional net surf, and to make calls/text and not have to carry around both a work phone and a personal phone. If I want a camera, then i'll use a decent quality one and not stuff around with a phone one then have to get the images of my phone. What is the big deal with having to use an earphone for music??? You have to use one on an ipod and besides we don't really want you inflicting your taste in music on us anyway. I also suspect that the phone hanging is because of how much you've loaded on to it and how many concurrent apps are running. Try using it sensibly, as a phone and not as a high powered gaming computer. It was never meant to be a computer - it was meant to be a phone, and as a phone it does a terrific job.

This is a bad phone - looks good - but dual sim does not work - email connection keeps breaking and overall - nice to look at - but i have promised myself to only purchase HTC or Apple or Windows phones from now on.

the camera has no flash features.no options for making d sd card the default storage.you cant change the number of home screen panels.no dedicated camcorder. not having a flash feature makes d pictures dark when not in a well lit area

i am enjoying this phone from 2 months.
camera is of 3 mp, video is vga .update your fon to v10c and u'l not get any battery issues, install any launcher like go launcher to enhance the ui. install poweramp and buy a good headphones then sound is awesome.
you can swap the 1gb sd with your external card if you are rooted and also can use app like directory bind (easier).
around 301 mb ram usable 84 mb ram is used by adreno 200 gpu. rom is around 390 mb and internal memory is of around 160 mb, total 550 mb for apps installation (rom can be used only if rooted, by making apps->system apps). new hd games like gta3 amazing spiderman batman dark knight rises asphalt modern combat 3 etc can be played smoothly but if you want to play boring and pathetic game like the famous (dont know why :/) temple run then sorry you can't play without root. consider agent dash, subway surfers, better than temple run.
download android sdk tools and set default location for application installation to sd card than all applications will be installed to sd (NO ROOT NEEDED).
for any problems msg me on facebook.
there is no probs in this phone but if you wish you can consider lg optimus net dual (bit expensive)

"Don'buy"----
using this phone since 2&half months not a WORTH at all
Camera is of just 1.5 mp,video vga,no loud speaker it uses just ur call speaker, DAMN SLOW,if both sim cards are inserted one of the network is down many times,UI is boring,Resolution is poor,no use of internal 1gb,Games like Temple run dont even runn.
Can't give even one good reason to buy this phone

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2012-09-20 04:24 from v0qx - click to readWhat are the pro's and cons of this dual sim phone?

some say one sim signal and other sim don't.
is it really slow and low camera 1.5 only not 3.5?
Or is it better to buy a better handset like:

LGBL40/Xperia neo/Galaxy Y/Vivaz pro/Sony Ericsson Satio/Nokia Lumia?

Bro, what about battery life?
Can it play an HD Video 720p - 1080p youtube at least?
is the audio too low ? please help
