Nice device if you aren't into specs, GREAT battery life!

For 300 dollars (USD), you can get a pretty darn good smartphone. It might not have the top end specs of the flagship devices, but, it's half the cost too! The battery & screen size are the big pluses on this device.

Build quality 8/10 Feels solid
Reception 10/10 clear
Call quality 10/10 No issues
Internet 10/10 Straight talk, no issues, 4gLTE
Multimedia 9/10 No issues with youtube, about the extent of my multimedia, save for mp3's
Camera 8/10 Kind of picky on this, I've been a photographer for over 30 years. This is a PINHOLE camera phone, but, for what it is, it's not bad. Macro mode (using camera FV-5 software) is pretty darn good!
UI speed 10/10 Very snappy
Everyday usage 10/10 Not one issue
Text input 8/10 Stock keyboard is ok, but I prefer swiftkey
Display 10/10 It's HUGE! Nice for a mid 50's age persons not so 20/20 eyes. If you are a pixel peeper, you might see the pixels, but at a normal viewing distance, I don't see what the fuss is about it being "only" a 720p screen.
Battery 10/10 I'm a heavy phone (1500-2000 minutes per month) user, around 100 emails, few dozen texts, lots of web browsing, few dozen photos on a monthly basis. I get easily 2 days, and most times 3 days on one charge! Not plugging it in 2-3 times a day is nice!


  • If you aren't into specs, this is great
  • phone.


  • It's size might put you off.

for the price an all around winner

for what I paid for this phone, I could not be happier. I don't watch vids on my phone so the resolution isn't an issue for me. It's super fast and responsive and feels good in my hands despite it's size/weight. Not a one handed phone.
