Good phone for the price, full description below.

Bluetooth transmits 20 feet easily. Front and rear cameras are a bonus. The back camera is 5 megapixels and has a flash,. The flash is nice and bright, it almost needs a setting to adjust the lumen power. Operating system could use some performance tweaks, but that's what root is for. Speaking of root, all it takes is two apps which can be had from google play to wrangle superuser power, a couple simple steps to freedom. Don't forget to backup your factory Android install before you reformat, if you reformat.. Here's where I start with negative attributes; Factory music player seems to have problems searching my 16gb SDHC Micro card, file sorting is bungled slightly by over engineering, and it's slow, this could be caused by a few things which I haven't taken the time to properly diagnose. The phone is able to use a 64gb card. Some system settings and apps are hidden. Wifi may have problems staying connected if you do not turn off the hidden power save mode. There are too many apps set to run uninterrupted and download updates without your consent. Not too much bloatware, phone has a decent amount of internal storage (2gb), it'll get you further than the original Prevail, thank god, what great phone with such a disappointing internal ROM. The phone's outer casing is akin to wool socks on a linoleum floor sprayed with Pledge Furniture Polish. It's literally so slippery the people working on the Large Hadron Collider should start consulting Samsung for tips on the frictionless surface...Build quality 6/10Reception 9/10Call quality 6/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 8/10UI speed 5/10Everyday usage 8/10Text input 5/10Display 9/10Battery 6/10
- 5 megapixel rear camera.
- Easily attainable root access.
- SD card slot can use a 32gb or possibly 64gb card(i might be wrong about it being able to use a 64gb card)
- Low price for mid-grade tech.
- You don't have to barter with supernatural spirits and other unknown entities in order to unlock your screen.
- Minor bloatware, some hidden apps and preferences, really slippery case(it's like teflon for your fingers)
