Not the best but it did its job
87thobee has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
Fist 3 months with it were ok, but every second after was dreadful. Internet experience is bad, camera is awful. The UI is old, slow, just awful and there no way to get an update OTA other than using a CustomRom. The screen is to small to type and see what you are writing at the same time. The OS can't score me any of the latest games and gaming experience is bad. The phone tought me a lot about the Android OS and since it was my first smartphone, it tought me about smartphones in general. Would I recommend it to anyone, not in this day and age. So glad the nightmare is over. Although, for a low-range smartphone is March 2012, its not all that bad. But technology has gotten so much better and even while I had this phone, I had a desire for all the premium smartphones that were available and I felt at thou there were to many better phones out there.Build quality 6/10Reception 9/10Call quality 7/10Internet 5/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 6/10UI speed 7/10Everyday usage 8/10Text input 9/10Display 7/10Battery 7/10
- Good low-end phone
- Very outdated even for a low-end phone today

It's been nice in 2012-2013
meto402 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
I got it in 2012 and used in until 2013 and it was my first smartphone I ever owned and I learned a lot of things about android from it!
It used to be a very nice phone back in the day, but now it's just nothing more than a device you can use to browse Facebook or watch videos. Gaming is not possible! :/Build quality 4/10Reception 8/10Call quality 9/10Internet 6/10Multimedia 5/10Camera 5/10UI speed 5/10Everyday usage 6/10Text input 7/10Display 5/10Battery 6/10

Although it is cheap, it is still better than a BlackBerry
heino861 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
If you want a phone, for temporary use, than this is the phone for you as it does every basic thing. You can download games and social networking apps on the play store, this is not recommended as this phone does not perform well when overloaded with apps. It will cope with your bear necessities with no problem.Build quality 6/10Reception 6/10Call quality 6/10Internet 6/10Multimedia 4/10Camera 5/10UI speed 4/10Everyday usage 6/10Text input 5/10Display 6/10Battery 7/10
- Cheap, but still better than a BlackBerry!
- The fact that it is cheap makes you jealous of more expensive android phone users

joven.solamoir has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
it's really a good phone for me, my mother don't want for anyone to know about this, i don't know why but, i can easily hide this phone to my pocket, because it's a pocket sized phone
i don't really want to hide this phone but my mother said so...
and even when i download apps in the app store i always hide from everybody else.....

I don't have it, my friend does.
TheBcoolGuy has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
So one of my friends, who wants to stay internet anonymous, bought this phone because he wanted to have a reliable durable phone. He didn't care that much about features. He said: "Yeah, I like it because it's pretty cheap, durable, fills your needs and has a nice touch screen." His former phone was some really old phone.
P.S. It's him rating this over the phone. I'm just typing it.Build quality 9/10Reception 7/10Call quality 7/10Internet 6/10Multimedia 5/10Camera 3/10UI speed 5/10Everyday usage 7/10Text input 7/10Display 5/10Battery 9/10
