I have this phone and absolutely love it. For the money, this is excellent phone. I bought it as second phone with dual sim capability to have while working and so I can switch SIM cards when I travel. After almost two years, and daily use without any protection whatsoever, dropped it more than once on concrete and rocks, had it in pocket with keys etc... it still looks as new. Minor, and hardly visible wear on corners and that is all. Plastic seem cheap but in reality it is very hard, durable and quality made. Specs are excellent and phone is fast,never had any issues with it on more than 10 networks in as many countries, and it beats my new Lumia 550 any given moment (I bought Lumia just to test WP10)
Only flaw, and unfortunately major one, is camera, which is, despite being 8MP, very bad, slow, unreliable and ... it looks like camera is 3 generations below. If this phone had decent camera, it would be my primary phone. It is kinda ok during daytime but awful at night.
If camera is not so important to you, buy this phone and you will not be sorry, it has proven above all my expectations.

With a 2500 or 3000 MAh battery, this phone would rock! I own one three weeks now, and I have no problems with it, system is fast, sound quality good, screen is ok, so I am satisfied with it!
It's also a Prestigio MultiPhone 8500 DUO. I'd rather go for the Prestigio, though.
