The phone is slow, browsing is fine with WI-FI, The problem I always had is the DATA RECEPTION, neither or both Sim always turns off when 1 sim is utilized, Sim 1 Always turns off while it shifts to gprs/3g/hspa mode of reception which is reall a downside when you are in an area where there is weak signal.

It is an excellent internet device but the phone/messaging app is extremely slow; most of the times, the name of the caller only shows after the 6th ring.
