Still working with this phone just fine, just got a new battery for it,and hoping for another 2 years with it
I think it's more than worth to look on YouTube, how to install a custom Rom.
A custom Rom with Android 7.1 is good enough for WhatsApp, Facebook and abit of surfing the web.
If you were not happy with it, you could then buy a new phone. If it is good enough, it saves you abit of money. Simple is that....

I use it to track my runs and some sweat got into it. After freaking out on spending money on a new phone, I saw humidity inside, so I just waited to dry with some help of desiccant, and everything worked well.

Still working fine after 4 years and a half ( purchased may 2013 ) . only changed the battery . Great phone . this was a premium top of the line phone in 2013 , thats why the spec are still decent nearly 5 years later . We the crazy price of smartphones and exonorable price of plans here in Canada discourage me to get a new phone . This one allow me to have a cheap plan since the phone is mine now . I had a Sd card ans sim card problem ... i switched the sim card + sd card reader ( come in one module with both) .. cost 8 $ with screwdrivers etc included in the kit . Took 10 minute .. very easy . I dont know if i would buy this phone in 2017 but if you have one and it still work , keep it . It does the job fine . i hope it will last another year ... 5-6 year with a phone is great lifespan . Greatest purchase i made at the time when cell phone were cheap with 3 years plans . i paid 100 $ for this phone in 2013 .. for 4 years and a half of use . Cant ask better
