I've been using the NFC version (made in Vietnam) for 14 months. The interface has everything a regular user would need. Battery life is good, camera quality is perfect. Main problems come with performance of the Broadcom chip which is really terrible in certain areas. Phone boots for about 40 seconds but the boot of clock and flashlight widgets takes more than a minute. It takes 30 seconds to calculate the storage statistics which is ridiculous in my opinion. If you are a multi-tasker and you update many apps regularly (like I do) you should know that this CPU just can't handle it properly. But if you just want to have a very wide range of tools and high quality shooter (even though it processes slowly) this is a beautiful device for the money. :)
Overall, everything is good except the fact that the Broadcom is too cheap (to lower device price), so don't expect miracles like Exynos performance.

Hi has anyone done a antutu test with this phone? mine freezes and restarts when it come to the 3d test
I have been using this phone for around 1.5 years, following are my observations.
- Works smoothly even with considerable number of apps.
- Very reliable, no laggy screens, no frequent reboot required.
- It has fallen many times, no damaged to screen but outer cover. Still going on.
- Good value for money.
Intially the batter life was very good, but with age, battery life reduce drastically.
Phone has average looks, so feel quite boring after sometime.
