A slow phone that will struggle to run games like angry birds, (although a gba emulator is quite nice) but can get you through the day, with some issues.

Its low resolution screen and lack of a capable gpu cause problems on many apps, and makes for a cramped space with ads. No multitouch suport from stock rom. The internal storage is very limiting too, 2-4 big apps at 10-20mb's each will completely fill your phone.

With some unofficial builds of "Cyanogen mod" you can make it a slightly better, faster, multitouch device running android 2.3.
If you are really brave and can put up with big bugs, beta builds of cyanogen mod 9.1 (android 4.0.4) are floating around, and can bring this phone into a new light.

If you can, save up for any android with 4.0 or better, iv'e seen too many people put off android and going for iphones because they think the only android is a cheap android like this.

Unless you're a cheep tech hacker, need a backup phone, or DON'T care about getting an android, Do Not buy this phone!

> In reply to hailley @ 2013-07-10 06:52 from Fq{s - click to readThere seems to be a problem with Google Play. Somehow Google Play thinks that your device is not compatible with this app anymore.
There is a way to overcome this.
Uninstall the existing Whatsapp from your phone.
Download from the website of www.whatsapp.com the latest Whatsapp apk.
Copy the new apk on a SD-card and insert this inside the telephone.
Install the new apk from the SD-card (for this you will have to allow installation from "Unknown sources").
The newly installed Whatsapp can come up one time with the same message, but just ignore this. It will work.
Good luck.
