Extremely decent device, cheap, rugged and perfectly sized for those who like small phones. Great screen for its size, both color-wise and dpi-wise. Not for demanding games. Small internal memory with preinstalled bloatware. After updating the apps, the memory will become full.
What worked pretty well for me:
1. Rooting the device
2. Changing to Zelly Cream 6 rom optimized for the device
3. Partitioning your SD and installing Link2SD – Internal memory issue gone forever

Are you crazy.. some would like to prefer a bigger screen than a 3 inch screen. And for the people with poor eye sight they want some big screen.. for conveniece of reading and gaming! If you cannot afford s5 then dont say something funny men. You are ignorant. Be mature.

Very hard wearing except the screen scratches easily. Just ordered a Samsung galaxy note 2 though because the wifi is very poor because of the thick cover.(sony even admitted it) Multiple reviews back this up and I mean it, the wifi is shockingly crappy.
My battery last at least 48 hours with light usage,with lots of usage it last good 24 hours and I think it is good for any android phone.
