I've had this phone for about 3 years now. I like it. But it's gotten old and I can't wait to upgrade to a better one. Here are the cons that I've noticed:
1. The battery runs out quicker, but it's probably because of some app that's draining it.
2. A lot of good apps are now outdated for this phone. You'd get away with older versions though.
3. The lag is unbearable at times.
4. No front camera.
5. The back metal part (near the camera) rusts/oxidizes over time. It doesn't bother me that much though, just thought I could share.
6. Speaker is sorta weak.
The pros that I've noticed:
1. I've dropped this phone SO many times with and without a case. It has NO major cracks, just bruises.
2. It does what a basic phone should do. Plus a few more things.
3. It's cheap.
4. It's small. Sure, a lot of people like bigger phones, but it looks cute and simple in my opinion.
5. The battery used to hold for very long periods without needing to recharge.
6. Front camera is okay, I use it a lot.
Low-end but OK for what it is. Browsing a bit slow. Not much room for extra apps - and don't update anything unless you absolutely have to.
I actually find it easier to SMS than other later phones - less prone to fat thumb syndrome, "keys" are inexplicably big for screen size.
A lot of focus on poor screen resolution; and yes - it is noticeably blocky - but you are not going to watch video on it eh?
I bought three - two went to elderly parents-in-law and one eventually gifted. Cheap to unlock. No problems encountered.
Is going to be a problem if i delete google play service? Because I have to delete some items. I can't install viber or what's up.
the best phone i have used till date. it is slow but very very durable. had the Ram been little more then it would have been really great. and the irony is i smashed the phone cuz i cant run many apps on this phone. a super durable phone all the way.
i had this phone for like two years. It is a good phone and really durable but the memory is really less, the camera is not to good, and the android version got really old. But for the price it is a good phone.
I was actualy very happy with this phone, until 6 months ago. The phone was really all I ever needed, no fancy games, not lots of useless apps and it did wonders - compact yet reliable. But suddenly the phone decided it should reset itself approx. once a day. Sometimes it's several times in 5 minutes and sometimes it works great for days but you then know you're in danger. Often it happens to me that the phone resets and until I realise it, no one was able to get me since I have to retype PIN meaning it was working off line. Well, I have to point out that there are 4 of these phones in my house: while 2 still work wonderful, other 2 just suck. And I'm the one that got the lemon. In fact I still use it but I am very unsatisfied and can't wait to get the opportunity to purchase a new phone. Nevertheless, I would definately recommend it. Hope you're not my luck, or just upgrade after 2 years ;)
Damn, so cool phone.. I use 2 years alredy, it's great.. but i want to change because doesn't have secondary camera, and RAM and Android Version is too low... By the way, great phone i recommended you :)
i use this device for almost 3 years still it is best mobile i used in android i just love to use but in this if storage will be more more means no need to change a phone so to miss this superb phone.....:(
using it for more than 3 years.............touch is as great as it was brought.. storage is the only drawback... great phone..
Maybe the 2nd best phone I ever used and it works good but these days are outdated but still will work good for average person but if you have alcatel and you are looking for good phone use this it just beats any of the older alcatels
the best android mobile i ever had and very stable, despite the small memory etc...but did its magic!!!
