The phone is good nevertheless d touchscreen failed after few months, so needed replacement. Apart from that internal antenna for fm radio, doesnt work tne way it should. Overall nice phone, in the price range that its offerd.
not satisfied with the touch screen, it's functioning failed within one year of purchase, any how the model has stopped, hence cannot suggest to buy.
features r really superb..i like the sliding of 3 wallpaper screens,,,once i dropped it and the touch hasnt workd properly,,by next month some idiot has stolen it...
I don't recommend buying this phone as its touchscreen has failed twice already during first year of usage.
Does this phone support Apps like WhatsApp? Where can we download those Apps in this specific phone?
