Have been using the phone for about 10 days.
Will say its worth the value (about US $115 bought in Indonesia).
The phone is very workable for daily use, even for video streaming. However not sure if it's still smooth with high resolution gaming application. The problem is that it need to always delete cache and other unnecessary data inside internal memory, as well as boost its ram to ensure the phone still running smoothly, the other downside is the screen resolution, as the pixel is still consider quite low (you won't get the best sharp pictures/video, however still acceptable). The screen is not using gorilla glass, so you might want to use tempered glass ALL the time to prevent LCD from cracking.
Phone performance 7/10
Value for money 9/10
