After 2 years battery charged very slow, I suspected battery fault. Bought battery, tear down all, broke ribbon cable of lower speaker and usb port. Bought the board, replace both battery and board. Charge normal again. Then Im not sure the problem are battery or usb port corroded. Broke antenna on upper speaker cover. Still normal.
RAM was main problem here, as only 200Mb left. Make it really slow. But this phone was beauty. Love design and size.
It's a great phone, never had problems, until today when I've tried to download a health tracker app - says my device in not compatible. Company says phone is probably old version (!). Does this mean I have to upgrade to a new phone...???
Its an okay phone if all you're doing is basic stuff. It's extremely slow at opening apps and running them and it often overheats quite a lot. decent at running youtube videos but optimisation isn't very good.
I Have Mine It Oz In Good Condition Bt It Js Start Misbehaving,if I Switch It On,after Som Sec It Switchez Itslf Off.,.I Dnt Knw Wat To Do Nw,,,help Pliz
The use of the phone is quite enjoying but it gets too hot to hold especially after a long use either for the internet or for games.
Own this phone for 2 years, tho. And have no problems with apps loading or smth like this. It works pretty fast, btw battery still doing it's job perfect, 2 days in typical daily mode: internet+music+calls.
Also it has awesome sound using both speakers and external output and nice retina screen. Not an iphone 6, but it costs a fair price.
Do not regret bought this one.
losuudz, 06 Nov 2016An overall poor phone with a small amount of RAM which makes it extremely slow. The phone take... more+ 2 months after I bought the phone, the microphone wasn't working anymore and there was no solution to fix it. The only possibility was to speak on the speaker mode, which is quite incovenient tbh.
An overall poor phone with a small amount of RAM which makes it extremely slow. The phone takes a thousand years to open apps like Snapchat, which require the use of a camera. Videos on youtube are quiet good but the phone gets laggy after 1 to 2 years of use. I wouldn't recommend buying it unless you will just use it for basic stuff (calling, messaging etc). Moreover, without a protection, you will feel your fingers burning because of the battery overheating problem. It also has a major problem with water because a simple contact with it makes the phone bug.
I bought the phone in 2014 and 6 months later, it started to freeze and even crash sometimes with no reason. There are also phenomen which can't be explained like the autocorrector turning on itself or the need to restart the phone because the Camera app cannot be opened.
P.S: The battery removal is a pain in the a** because of the required number of tools to just open the phone and then disconnect all of the wires of the phone just to access the battery.
After a year it turnout to be the shities phone ever and i just want to smash it with a hammer till i wont be able to lift the hammer again.
Its camera is good... But ram is not sufficient.... Battery life also poor....don't wast your mony....
chUnCHEn, 14 Aug 2016I underestimated this phone....but the only CON is its 1gb RAM, every other thing is awesome.yes.. you are right
i love everything but the RAM
if it had 2gb, would be my best phone ever

Honestly speaking, it's a decent phone with a nice display,small screen and first and foremost,what probably is the best stereo loudspeaker I've ever seen on a phone.
That being said,though,it is,for the most part, a very flawed phone,with glaring cons such as:
-Intense overheating in every season of the year(yes,even winter)
-Short battery life
-Performance similar to that of a 2011 flagship phone
(plus one that people haven't really talked about at all,or it's only me)
-The glass is terribly fragile(I only dropped the phone once from 1 meter height max and it cracked)
You can still give it a shot, in case performance is not what you are looking for on a phone,but you would be better off buying any of the latest phones in Sony's E series or the newest Samsung A3.
