Had it since it launched on eBay. Software support/Firefox OS updates are great. Flawless. Because they just do not exist. The phone is slow, screen is bad in sunlight, camera is awful, but... I can send a text, email, access Facebook, talk, even its GPS is fine. All in all, that's exactly what I need and it did not cost me an arm and a leg. Since it's ugly as fu*&, nobody will ever be tempted to rob me. I even dropped it a few times by mistake, did not break, still works fine. I'll keep it around until it disintegrates.
This phone was a trainwreck, especially for 2014. It would have been just as bad in 2009. It was slow, camera was terrible, had almost no app support and the display looked very poor.

Its an absolutely wonderful device based on its price tag. Well there are some issues regarding the OS. May be Flashing it with the latest build may resolve it.
Got mine back in May. Had a few issues where the phone would not charge, no idea about the cause, they just appeared randomly and the phone would eventually charge after a few tries. Other than that, everything works fine. A good deal given the price, especially since now it's some 40-50% cheaper than it was when I got it.
P.S. I know, camera is shitty, sound quality could have been better, build feels flimsy... but let's keep one thing in mind - this is a CHEAP 3G PHONE THAT WORKS. Get it if you need a 3G phone with WiFi and GPS and you will get what you want, but if you're looking for a full featured smart experience and premium build quality... keep looking.
This phone uses Standard SIM Size not Micro SIM. Reference from Australian model.
does the 1400 mAh battery is enough for last at least a day with a standart use ?
Just 5 days with it and 1/3 of the screen do not respond, I have already try resetting it.
I don't recommend this phone if you can get another
