Specatularly rugged

ravishankarr has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

Solid phone that takes on abuse like no other. Metal back is much better than any glass finish, which is partly why it's so rugged. After using it for 13 months, I can say that this is one of the best phones I've ever owned.

Disappointing

toneta91 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

The phone is not slow but it stops working at random times when it is not even doing any heavy tasks. For example, I swipe down the menu and it just hangs and I have to wait for it for a minute. Sometimes it happens when i have to make a call really quick. It stops working about 30% percent of the time I am trying to take a picture. The camera is of really bad quality which I am ok with but the fact that it hangs so often is driving me crazy. I tried reseting it, clearing the cache etc... Nothing works.
This issue aside the phone is ok for its price. I got it for about 160 dollars and I wouldn't recommend it if you are going to buy it for any more than that.

UPDATE: Sold it and bought the Xiaomi A2 lite and I'm very happy with my decision. Call quality, speed, battery life and camera are way better.
