This phone is at the cheaper end of the dual sim market but it has several flaws tat make it very user unfriendly:

1) The torch is only as bright as the screen - I have used several different torch apps and they seem to only make the LED 25% lit. If you use the LED as a flash it is super bright, use it as a torch and the performance is extremely poor - next to useless!

2) Once this phone is loaded up with apps it is very, very slow and laggy.

3) The 4 buttons at the bottom of the screen DON'T ILLUMINATE!!! What a joke.

4) There is a random glitch that automatically turns on the second sim - it happens once a week at least.

5) The phone goes through phases where after every phone call / message a screen pops up asking what sim you would like to use??? Then it doesn't happen for months.

6) There is NO WAY to silence the camera! Put it on vibrate, silent etc and the camera always makes a sound - very, VERY annoying.

7) The phantom files that the camera folder contain - I always have two 150-200mb thumbnail files that serve no purpose other than taking up valuable space.

8) Screen brightness reduction due to 'overheating'. This never happened till a few weeks ago, even when it is used indoors and when it isn't that hot.

9) Bluetooth that randomly doesn't work, will not turn on etc.

Hope this has helped? If you are looking to buy this phone perhaps spend a little more and get another model.

ATTENTION BUYERS !
ME AND TWO MORE PEOPLE (as i read in a part of comments!) HAVE THIS PROBLEMS AND STILL HAVING THEM ...
SO STOP BUYING IT TILL ALL OF THEM FIXED.

my phone sometimes shows that your phone has stop working
and sometimes camera is also not working,it shows your system ui system has been stopped
sometimes it restarts automatically
AND When Listenin to music (Headphone or Speakers) after some tracks played some sounds will destroy your relaxation! phone hangs and will self restarts with about two minutes hang ...
I have your camera Problem too.
I used Garanty and ther Flashed my ROM but after about 1 month same problem so i decided to give it to Guranty Center ... i think its somehow happens because of two growing files in Phone memory/DCIM/ .
there is two files in there (.thumbdata3-*some numbers*) that will grow over time and deleting them will creat them again !they are about 2.5Gig right now in my phone and still having the camera problem.
about the hangs ... its because of Ram its about 612MB that more than half of it is busy :|
what do they thing with this low RAM ???!!!
I have your Problems Mate and I'm Aboute to replace the phone with a better one (at least in RAM thing !)

I Copy Pasted mine and others opinions ...
hope you know what you are doing ...

go to
settings > Back Up & Reset
Down there is the option you are looking for ...
It will Erase ALL the data, Settings, Phone Number, Data of preinstalled apps, user apps and pretty much every thing (like you just bought it today !) and if i remember right it will give you an option to erase everything on your External SD as well so be careful of what you are going to do.
Hope helped
