That could scamble its brains for sure, but then probably an phone would could have an issue with a sd card in a sim card slot. Its Not an Iphone, but then it doesn't cost the same as an iphone, for me this was an awesome phone, fantastic camera, descent apps, and easy menu system
This phone is absolute trash. I've had it for about a year now and it's shown to be an absolutely unusable piece of wasted resources. For the last two or three months i have been unable to download anything bigger than 500 MB (dispite it showing me that there is well over 3 GB left unused on my SD card). But that's only the beginning, since last week random apps have been opening and closing without any input,often freezing the device. That, on it's own has made the phone unable to use, but rescently when i reeboted the phone,instead of showing me the usual PIN code board the display is bombarded with caution windows of apps failing to boot,thus rendering me helpless to do anything but press "OK" on every single window. If you are in need of a phone that funcions correctly or at least a descent preformance from the devices main functions, don't buy this phone. I wouldn't recommend this garbage to anyone unless it's a prank or something.
My friend had one of these, they look good but break fast and are pretty trash
That's what you get for trusting a Belorussian-Cypriot money laundering scheme company
Prestigio makes bad phones... I have been using my Pap5450 and its HORRIBLE

I have had this phone for just 5 months now and the camera has just stopped working without any mechanical shock. I have sent a query to Prestigious.com but no response. I contacted the local dealer who sold me this phone and he can't help either. M very stressed.
the same problem here with display, after few months, the display just broken over night (without mechanical shocks or blows) , and an error show on the screen, they refuse to take the phone in guarantee, now i'm looking for display replacement, i cannot find from where to take one, can some one to give me a correct link for this display please? Thank You a lot.
Had this phone for under year and the screen broke whilst in my pocket and I can not get a replacement !!!!!!!!!! Always had trouble with the touch screen thought it was me as I have the onset of "white finger". However when my 22 year old son tried to use it he almost threw it against the wall as the touch screen so so poor to use (unable to adjust factory setting) In my families opinion the phone very poor quality and not user friendly. The only good thing I can say is that dual sim is a fantastic concept and will be looking for an other to replacement but a better brand name with spare parts available in England.

First, you can find LCD if you try. my screen was broken too, by my mistake. Pne guy said that it has bad lcd.. Man, lcd on every phone will crack if it fells down, be realistic. I have this phone for over a year now, love the procesor, i'm playing some serious games on it and it still works fine. It had it moments,but every phone has a flaw. Camera is great, and over all, for that money, you can't find Samsung or Sony with that quality.
My Prestigio 5508 takes good photos in low light, but only if I disable the flash.
With now flash, the low light photos are actually quite good.
I think the camera is a good one, but the software isn't calibrated and can't take advantage of the flash.
This prestigio phone PSP5508Duo has a 13 mp camera and a bsi sensor,but can not take photos in low light and dark conditions.Photos are over exposed.Is this normal?Service center says this is normal,and they can not do nothing. Do you agree,is this normal?
Hi. help plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz .
I need ROM 5508
PLZ LINK TO ROM FOR DOWNLOAD
I have this phone for over a year and and I had no problem with it.
It's great value for money (I paid less than 200 euros for it) and it runs great even with more than 150 apps installed (I still have 3 GB of free space).
It got ove 31.000 points in Antutu, and the battery life is great (more than 2 days of average usage).
Had this phone for almost a year. I would not recommend this brand if you live in the UK. Apart from no SD slot, No 4G the real problem is after sales service. I dropped my phone while it was in the protective case supplied from about 3 feet and the touch screen cracked. The touch screen stopped working and thats when the fun started. The ONLY service centre for Prestigio is a company called Electrical Partners in Talford. They don't answer phone calls or emails and if ever get your phone to them, you won't ever get it back repaired at least. No other UK repair service will touch Prestigio and you cant get spare parts outside of eastern europe. Take my bad experience as your advantage and DON'T BUY THIS PHONE.. stick with a well known brand. I have made Maplin aware of this issue and they called me back to say they were disgusted with the attitude of the Prestigio service centre. Maplin are not responsible for your after sales service and cant help you.. be warned.. this is money down the drain.
Had this phone for at least 6 months, no hardware issues or failures so far, all good on that front.
For the money, the hardware's excellent. Excellent processor, great camera, screen and internal memory's good.
But, no SD slot, and 1Gb RAM. 2 would've been nice.
for all of you who buy phones this phone has a Mediatek MT6592. i had a mediatek phone it lasted 7 days and it died. so wen you chose a phone go with a snapdragon becous its quality.
sorry for my bad english
Hi! I bought 5508 duo in December 2014. At first everything was OK. After two months the microphone broke down. Went to Prestigio service and they replace it - on my cost, they said water came in phone. Even today I don't know how...if I can belive them. After that I had phone for 4 months and this week the Option, Home and Back button stopped working. I rebooted it and every advice I found online but still nothing.
Meanwhile occasionally it simply frozed, apps were closing down, speaker and microphone must be very, very, really very bad because the speaker's sound is terrible while having a conversation, also people oftenly told me they don't hear me. Btw, if this phone falls down you have very good chance that something will be wrong with the touchscreen, I have some color mulfunction at the right side of the screen..apperantly phone touched the floor on that very spot. When I had HTC 3d, pfone survieved for three years everything and now I will still have it as a backup phone. Also..this phone is Octa core..but belive me it is not any faster than quad core phones.
So my advice, stay away of Prestigio, not just phone, but everything. Prestigio and "durable" has nothing in common. I really regret I bought this crap. It is not worth any money.
