Worst phone I have
Carlos_esp has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
Its price was 125€ ($140) when I bought it. Even for this price, the camera, display, UI speed and everyday usage were unfortunate. I bought it because the options were Galaxy Mini or L3, and this is better than Galaxy. Fortunately, this was 3 years ago, now I have a very recommended phone.
Only good for the basics

Does the basic staff like making calls seemlessly. UI response tends to slow down when you have many apps installed. The build quality is very good, have dropped it a couple of times but its still ok. Camera a big let down, one of the worst 3.2 megapixels i've ever come across. however the battery life of this phone is very impressive, can easily go jus over 3 days with moderate use.
actually fine for the price

Picked one of these up on sale for $50. Looks nice, and actually works great. Issues that people complain about like the low resolution screen and poor camera, come on. It's a very cheap phone. What do you expect? The phone looks much nicer then other phones for the price. And gingerbread actually really helps it be quite fast. For what I use it for, unlocking the phone, making a call, writing a text message, or putting on some music, actually feels faster then an S3 on TouchWiz 4.3.
It however is a very durable phone and this is thanks to the touchscreen which is capacitive but actually plastic and not glass. Although it's much easier to scratch, it's pretty much impossible to crack. You can drop this phone all day and not have to worry a bit about it shattering from a 3 foot drop like most smartphones.
Phone creaks, but then again, so does my "quality" Nexus 7. The screen is actually fairly easy to type on, and although the screen is QVGA, keep in mind that this gives it the benefit of more performance and better battery life then HVGA counterparts as it only has half the pixels to power. Also on that note, the battery life on this thing is AMAZING. I haven't been able to kill it in a day of usage. When I'm not trying and just doing my regular usage, I'll end the day with at least half the battery left by the time I get to bed, where my previous S2 Skyrocket would barely last until 4PM with the same usage. Network reception is about average compared to higher end phones,...

Besides for, the camera, display and android 2.3, it makes a very nice phone, display is only 125PPI, which is easily noticeable, camera is very laggy and blurry, and android 2.3 doesn't support many apps and less features. Also this phone has very good battery life.

The phone seems pretty good to me (It is my first smartphone though). I have one big question though. How do I get flash to work? The review said it worked but now that I can't download it from google play how do I get it to work! PLEASE HELP ME!!!
A nice one
nagisa has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
Though it is a level entry smartphone has some good specs which makes it good and affordable. First, lets leave clear the battery its quite good. Using 3G, listening to music and brosing just drains a 50% of 100% in a long period of time. For an entry level, its a good number.
Thin, handable, good sound quality and wifi and calls reception. A very good smartphone.
A brilliant phone so far

This phone has been the best phone I've had in my life, it does so much i could use it as a computer (well all most as a computer.) i mainly go on this phone to text, call people and go on the internet and all those things are great. The keypad is good to text with, when your talking to someone on a call the voice is quite clear and that's good and the internet is good to research and Facebook etc.
Games take a while to load up like temple run and angry birds but the games play well, the loading up of the games doesn't matter it's just the playing what counts.
