The only good thing is the price

Do not buy this phone. Even though it’s cheap it’s better to use a little more money on a phone that actually functions. I’ve had some problem with the screen. In addition, the battery is not impressing, you have little to no memory on it and the screen doesn’t function properly. invest in something better.

Cheap. OK, but slow Chrome and low space (less than 2GB avail)
janolsen has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
Iphone friends break their glass when their phone is falling or cannot change battery when it stops working. My phone has fallen many times, still working. Chrome has become slow after updating, not sure if due to "only" 450MB available space or other reason. 4GB memory is too low on Android as system already takes most of it, and though you may install only 10 apps that takes far less than 2GB - they still seem to occupy much more...maybe caching or other reasons.

could be better

Not bad for its price but could be better. The camera is pretty good and the flash is a huge bonus. My main problem is that the glass easily cracked on dropping. And it froze quite a lot. The battery life is alright lasts me about 2 to 3 days. I've found the sound quality in calls is pretty good in comparison to the other phones I've used.

good for value
nikhilpatelj has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
its a good phone but still has quite a few problems but for its price range really good. RAM is always above 70% and a reason for this is the laggy UI. memory space is not as indicated which is 4 GB but just only 2.2 GB which is not really enough for people who like to keep trying different apps. camera works well but compared to the lumia 520 not that great but over the lumia 520 it has 1 advantage which is that it has the flash light. front camera is nothing great, so its not really a phone for people who love selfies. otherwise android system is on 4.2.2 stock and cannot be upgadable via softwares unless you root the phone and install a custom rom
if i would have to recommend a phone it would be the lumia 520 as its a great phone and way smoother then the trend plus
if you need any assistance about any phone contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org

The price is under 200$.It is perfectly suitable for casual web browsing,the battery life is pretty decent.Im happy with quality of this phone.Something that is bad,is the status bar,that can not be accessed when playing games.

Low range price with mid range spec
desmond0318 has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
768MB of Ram is still consider low for an android 4.2.2 , so we need to look out for those unnecessary applications that running all the time and uninstall it if doesn't affect the system and device. But that's not a big deal, this android already have LMK (low memory killer) it clear some rams with those apps that we didn't or seldom run when we needed big ram for some selected apps.
For those who wanna buy this phone for gaming, bare in my it is a 2 point touch and a 4 incher.
Overall is a good phone, i have no complaint about it after 3 months of usage, is in good size for one hand operating and that suits my liking..

Good mid-range phone (a Best Buy)
M1hai has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
A Best Buy phone in my opinion! Good camera (it has a LED flash and records 720p). It has decent performance in games like fruit ninja, it has a front camera (i mean come on what more can you ask :) ) the ux nature UI is nice and reliable

It handles everyday situations well and you really get what you've paid for, maybe even a little more. I can play all games well and all apps work properly, the screen is brilliant and you really don't notice that it has only a 5MP camera and VGA on front.
I got for half the price from a mobile carrier with no contract. Unfortunately, they are not obligated by law to unlock the phone, so they just refuse to do it. I had to make a soft root on it by myself and unlock it for my carrier.
A great contra is that Chrome, Drive, Dropbox, Play Newsstand, Hangouts, Google+ aso. are already on the phone as system apps, because as you sync your google account with these services, they will suck on your memory like a vampire on it's victim (more than 100MB without even using Google+). Also Samsung's app store and ChatON are a huge waste of free phone and RAM memory, and you should deactivate those and delete all updates from those apps to safe your phones performance. What I did was delete Chrome, Hangouts, Newsstand, Google+, Drive and Dropbox as system apps, downloaded them from the market and placed them on my SD card. I also did that to WhatsApp, Facebook Viber, Instagram and all the other things that waste the phones internal memory big time.
After 2 days I noticed that the phone was kinda slowing down, but found a solution by deactivate auto-sync functions from google photos, dropbox or any other cloud memory provider. I also deactivated Google+ (because I don't use it at all)....

good but could be better
jonas1999 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Don't judge me to harsh I've only had it for 2 weeks. i think this phone is pretty great.
it has the same size as my old phone but the possessor is 208 Mhz faster on this phone. this is the best phone I've had so far but the status bar can not be accessed when playing games. im gonna make new youtbe videos with this phone, you can subscribe to me if you want, my name is "Jonaz" on youtube.
