It technically works...

This phone is basically a wreck. I've had to use it because it was all i had and for that reason i'm trying to give it the highest score possible. At first this phone keeps up with the usual tasks that any smart phone would go through but after a bit it became an aggravating mess. The design of the phone isn't half bad and looks decent. The display isn't to bad even for it's low specs. It is also pretty durable and the LCD hasn't cracked. It'll uphold scratches but it's important to get a screen protector. It takes a good amount of physical stress and holds up nicely but as takes a turn for the worse as you actually try and use it for any purpose. While at the home screen it seems to transition well while any apps aren't running. Sometimes it'll open apps rather quickly but if the running apps aren't monitored closely it'll soon act laggy and irregular. As the phone is used longer and longer these issues show up even more until even trying a simple text message can turn into a 5 minute problem. No matter how much i took care of this phone it just seems to degrade so quickly over time. Now i've gone through 3 of these phones (because i had a warranty) and it hasn't been from improper use either. I take good careful care with all devices but it seems like this phone has been made horribly. Having to often restart this device is annoying and even more annoying since it'll refuse to use it's 4G data and sometimes not receive text messages. It's sad when phones from a year before and...Build quality 8/10Reception 6/10Call quality 8/10Internet 7/10Multimedia 4/10Camera 5/10UI speed 5/10Everyday usage 7/10Text input 7/10Display 6/10Battery 7/10

It was pretty good at first, It ran with decent performance, It could have been faster, but it was good enough. Lately, the OS horrible designs are starting to catch up, Apps need more RAM then they did then. the OS has lots of ongoing stuff in the background, causes the OS to perform worse to even Older less capable devices running CM11. This would normally be fixable but the Locked bootloader makes this impossible, and something you have to put up with until you pony up cash for a whole new system.Build quality 9/10Reception 7/10Call quality 10/10Internet 7/10Multimedia 6/10Camera 6/10UI speed 2/10Everyday usage 6/10Text input 6/10Display 10/10Battery 5/10

Good budget phone

I've had this phone for almost a year. The phone runs pretty smooth,its fast at opening apps and switching between task.The camera is not the greatest but I have got some really nice pics from it.The phone is however lacking in memory,only 4gb of internal memory .Apps can not be moved to sd card without rooting the phone.(I rooted mine)Overall this is a great phone if your on a budget like me.Build quality 9/10Reception 9/10Call quality 9/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 7/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 9/10Display 8/10Battery 7/10

I've had several Androids... including the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX, HTC Droid Incredible, and HTC Wildfire S and this one can definetly compete with my RAZR. It has a large screen, crystal clear impeccable graphics, fast processor. I'm not a phone whiz but this one is a good deal in my opinion. Not sure how reliable it will be since I haven't had it long, but I've had LG phones in the past and they were good quality phones so I'm hoping this will be the same. The only thing I don't like about the phone is it doesn't have a lot of internal storage or the option to move apps to your SD card. It says it has 4 gb's but almost 1/2 of that is wasted with a bunch of junk apps that come with the phone and you can't delete them either.Build quality 9/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 9/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 7/10
