Horrible Phone

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

Other than the fact this phone is water proof there is nothing good about. Can take up to a minute to even answer a phone call because of freezing. Not enough RAM to run the Facebook app. Camera is very poor. All apps crash daily.

Build quality 2/10 Feels very flimsy.
Reception 4/10 Amost no signal in doors.
Call quality 6/10 If you can manage to answer the call without the phone crashing voice sounds ok
Internet 4/10 WiFi speeds are OK at best. 3G is unusable. Crashes browser.
Multimedia 3/10 Awful. YouTube will work over WiFi but music crashes and locks up.
Camera 6/10 LED flash is the only thing good about it
UI speed 3/10 Slow, lags and crashes
Everyday usage 4/10 If you have nothing else its usable but don't rely on it
Text input 4/10 Input lags and crashes
Display 4/10 At least its bright
Battery 4/10 Lasts about 5 hours. If you lucky.


  • Water proof


  • Everything else
