The phone is a good option worth its value, But some problems are there which irritates sometime alot.
On the whole, the phone is good, but not very good or best.
Because, after just 1 year of usage, my phone's vibrating alert stopped working.

Its a basic camera with an "also can" attitude. It will play basic music file types, very limited video file types and dont expect to open or type word like notes on it.
Camera is better than nothing, flash is for lost keys and not shooting pics.
Sound quality is average and the headphone/file output connection is a flat mini usb. So dont expect general compatibility. For a cheap phone, its a steal. Specially having your 2 Sims working at the same time. The design is not fragile so it is well suited as an everyday communication tool

Build quality 10/10
Reception 10/10
Call quality 10/10
Internet 6/10 Very basic internet browsing ability
Multimedia 7/10 Limited file types can be opened with this phone. ex, you cannot play wmv or quicktime videos.
Camera 6/10 Only 1.3 megapixel & always fuzzy focus. Flash works better as a torchlight than a camera lightsource. Sometimes the camera would hang the phone making you loose the shot & requiring a restart. Weird/annoying camera effect sound.
UI speed 10/10
Everyday usage 10/10 Long battery life. Quite durable- Have been accidentally dropped several times but no problem arise
Text input 10/10
Display 10/10 Very good. Just dont use power save under bright conditions or you will not be able to see the screen clearly
Battery 10/10

Pros

  • Dual sim
  • Cheap but does not look cheap and has plenty of functionalities
  • Functional

Cons

  • Low aftermarket compatibility
  • No Aftermarket mods
  • Not geeky

Great basic phone. Serves the purpose.Quad band feature allows me to get coverage practically the whole world except (Japan & South Korea).Easy to operate, straight forward phone.Not expensive. ~ $100 more or less.The bad news:the alarm feature works in silent mode & you wont hear a thing when it rings. Unlike Nokia or Samsung models were the alarm disables the silent mode of the phone. So dont count on it as a daily alarm to wake you up, specially when you put phone on silent mode when you rest.limited characters for phone contacts. i.e. when you want to input a long name, its a problemyou can barely hear the ring & sms tone even at max volume (outdoor mode).If you can bear with the bad news, & you need the quad band feature of a dual sim phone, then this is the phone for you.Another thing why I considered this phone is its basic feature. Slide type, flip type or touch screen phones poses to breakdown easily than a straight phone like this one.

Great phone with excellent 2 Sim service. Nothing fancy or complicated, just what I was looking for to make and receive calls anywhere. Long life battery, and good camera. 
Keyboard not tiny, as with many other phones on the market.
