Overpriced basic phone

DnaAngel has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

Unforgivably i had to use this phone as a replacement for my 6 month old dead Sanyo Incognito..since both phones were same price(80$) i thought wrong to think they should be around the same performance wise ect..man was i wrong. It really wasnt until i got this phone did i realize how much bang for the buck my old incognito really was. right off the bat i noticed how sluggish this phone is. it has absolutely no multimedia what so ever. not even a memory card slot!!..no form of flash to watch youtube on..not even a form of Adobe reader to view emails properly..i will say navigation thru the internet was easier and smoother on this then my incognito..going from a slide out qwerty to this style keyboard does take a slight adjustment to get used to . the camera is a joke and at 1.3mp thats just a slap in the face..It has GPS but unlike with the incognito you have to pay a monthly fee to use it? and its the exact same GPS (Telenav)..all in all i was very unhappy with this phone and it being 80$..for the same price i would highly recommend getting the Incognito or Innuendo instead..you get alot more bang for you buck over this phone which should be in the 40$ish range to be honest
