It's a great phone, it's camera sucks, it fits in your hand like a charm. The speed is okay to use. The build quality is excellent. It would be better if they add Beats to this set. The phone is very nice to use.

All right for first 3 months- then battery died

butterfly has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

I had been happy with the phone, it has a great display and is a handy size. However the battery is the worst one I have ever had. It goes to sleep like an Ipod touch, then you have to turn it back on by pressing the power button. However it eats up so much battery that it will completely run out of charge after a day even if its only ever been on stand by. After 3 month of this happening about 7 times- the battery completely died, meaning that the phone wont turn on at all and wont charge. I am trying to find a new battery for it as I really like the phone. But I dont think I would buy it again if I had the choice.

Really good for an increased ring when its in a bag then it decreases when it senses you picking it up. It also turns the touch screen off when you put your head to it, then turns on again when you pull it away- this avoids knocking keys when you have it to your ear.

The display is probably the best thing about it, including the build quality.
Battery

If it wasnt for the awful battery I would recomend this phone. But it the battery life is its massive downfall. If I could give it a zero I would.

Pros

  • Display
  • Build quality
  • call quality

Cons

  • THE BATTERY
  • Camera
