I was going to complain about it's size (5 inces is a bit big for running) but since Quechua is more of a hiking company, this screen diagonal is understandable. GPS tracking on this is easy and comfortable, watching a movie on pitching tents looks awesome. The battery will last forever. A really good product IMO, targeting the right audience with the right product. And that price! Awesome, I wonder when will it be available in the Decathlon stores.

I have one with nautical miles of salty sea water, chloro pool water and is running like it was its first day. before that I had (still do and still works) xpera active and recently (almost a year), as a more practical weekend phone i bought xperia go. all 3 of them go into water whenever the swell is up. 'course i do have particular care in checking all the ports are shut tight. a friend of mine had a go round about same time as mine and he "drowned it, because he didnt check the ports. so i might guess that this is a user issue, not a equipment problem, dont you think?

Omg. I want this phone so bad. Price point is almost unbelievable. What else do you need? If i had to nit pick maybe a better camera. People need to think twice on what is necessary for what they are paying for. Especially crapple sheep. My Optimus g or almost any comparable sony handset puts the iphony to shame. Unless you got it for free without having to commit a portion of your life, then more power to ya.

It would be verry funny to find this device at Decathlon, as I know Quechua is one of their brands.

Sadly phone ANT+ support got extinct after the 2011 xperia devices, and I don't see it here either.. I'll probably have to buy new sensors supporting BT4.0 :(

Pretty decent, when you are lost in the forest you would want to making calls not playing asphalt or uploading selfies

no, 480p. It's a cheap underspecced phone unfortunately.
Which is too bad, because this thing's USP is the huge battery.
At IP57 or better hardening, a good screen, and Moto-G grade guts, it would have been a great 300 phone instead of a crappy 230 phone.
