Is your phone rooted or are you using it in hot weather/ direct sunlight or are you using a bulky case that stores heat?
If none of the above maybe get the phone looked at by a professional.

The review is quite accurate. Howevephonere are a few things that were not meantioned.
No option to add shortcuts to the lockscreen.
Impossible to change bottom dock shortcuts (phone , contacts etc.)

Purchasing this phone after my Htc Inc S died I was reluctant to buy a non Htc as I had gotten used to Sense over the years. Touchwiz does the job though. Its not Sense but it gets the job done.

Things that the reviews meantion that I can confirm:
Although the screen has a low rez its still a very good picture
The battery life is amazing on this phone
Under good light conditions the camera does a good job but otherwise its pretty shoddy.

Hope my 2cents help making a informed decision on weather to buy this phone.
I am personally very happy with it for the retail price I paid and would recommend it to people that are on a budget and dont want to fork out for the latest and greatest phones.
As long as you arent a photo buff this phone will do the job imo.

Lockscreen shortcuts.
I have the I8730XWAMB7 Jelly Bean 4.1.2 stock ROM. There are no app shortcuts on my lockscreen, nor is there any option in the settings to enable this useful feature. Yet I have seen posts on the web (including screenshots) of what should be stock Jelly Bean ROMs with lock screen shortcuts.
Is this feature present in some ROMs but not in others?
