Got this phone as a starter smartphone for my mum and was pleasantly surprised - so much so I purchased one for myself and happily using it. After 1st ever smartphone entry level Nokia Lumia home buttons stopped working - on further research this is a fairly common thing and wary of buying another one, though the Lumia phones are quite nice - but because of the common fault opted for Huawei and didnt want to spend a huge amount of money.
I noticed that the default setting is wi-fi to be on and there is another setting to have wi-fi always active - these need to be switched off as soon as you get your phone - or it will eat up all your credit and data - Even if you have an all inclusive package with data and calls, it will eat through it - so switch it off asap.
There is alot of bloatware on the phone and I urge you to read the permssions. some of the apps makes direct calls and can send message to people in your calender without your knowledge - I disabled as much of these apps I could and kept the apps that relate to the functions I need - - so you may want to have a look at those and see if you really need it -these will also eat your credit - doing this process speed up the phone considerably and using google chrome was superfast fast for the searches I did after disabling quite a few apps that were not necessary for me.
I had just recenty bought this phone for my mother as a present. As we all can agree, mothers and fathers are not usualy very technicaly advanced as far as smart phones and PC go in general. So this smart phone is very good for such a person because it is simple, basic and still gives a good experiance for a entry level user.
As you might guess for the price of 60 eur you do not get a HIGH end smart phone but rather a compromise between price and performance. I had tested it before I gave it away and was pleasantly suprised. It works well considering the lack of CPU power and RAM. To summ it up, IT WORKS SUPER. Yes if you go to youtube and watch HD video it starts to lag a bit but on a screen this size, who cares if it is 1080p or 720p. It's not like you can see all the details any way. This phone is not for gaming. Some simpler games run good but other hardware thirsty ones not so much. The display itself is small and you do have promblems writing text messages if your fingers are Hulk like. The cool feature of the phone is it's ability to change themes. It has no "menu" area for apps, rather all of them are on the "desktop". The phon, does not have a front faceing camera so no selfies possible :( Back camera si not that good. At 3Mpix it's not the best, but in good light conditions it makes a fairly good photo. There is no HD video only VGA. The sound form the mono speaker is fairly loud but the quality of sound is on the low medioum to low side. But again, it is to be expected. On the feel side, the phone it's plastic and the case and buttons feel cheap. The colour variations for the back cover are a bit wierd as well, since the fron panel is default black. Over all this is a good entry level phone.

4216fhhgggfjfh, 14 Aug 2015This phone is the stupidess phone ever.it is so slow.Sorry this phone did not live up to your high standards
512RAM on a 1.3GHz is always going to struggle. It was maybe designed for Lollipop ART runtime, not Jb Dalvik.
Maybe Stock UI would've worked. Adding manufacturer Emotion UI not working with low RAM.
Rinko, 06 Aug 2015Can dead trigger 2 play on this phone?Yes and veryyyyy good I have played it in my phone
Terrible Emotion UI, taking it back to shop. Obvious Chinese monitoring software, lags as it's always going thru your files, contacts & photos. Childish whitescreen design like a Nokia Asha. Panicking kernel all time. Slow surf, runs hot. Blocked downloads from Opera Turbo servers. Poor https. Phone isn't much into Freedom, folks. Welcome to China.
I have this phone and i have one quaestion. Why my phone have resistive screen???
