The only good thing is the price

Hellerud1 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

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.

Build quality 10/10 Plastic fantastic. Never breaks after dropping to the floor, great!
Reception 10/10
Call quality 9/10 Call quality can at times be bad, but could also be fault of caller. Sometimes lately I cannot hear anything when somebody calls, wonder if phone is becoming broken.
Internet 2/10 Chrome is crazy slow on my phone, happened after a Chrome update. Was good in the beginning. Have also reset phone, but assume Chrome after reset only is using the newest version.
Multimedia 9/10 Fine, cannot watch HD video it seems - can hear sound via VLC...
Camera 7/10 Works, not great - but probably better than some.
UI speed 7/10 Can be slow at times, not always. Considering buying a new phone due to this.
Everyday usage 9/10 Works fine, except Chrome slow.
Text input 8/10 Sometimes keyboard is slow to show, but not always.
Display 8/10 Fine, not so great is bright sun light.
Battery 8/10 Charging once a day is enough, except maybe need more if using Internet.


  • Price
  • Can install some apps on SDcard


  • Chrome slow
  • UI can at times be slow
  • 4GB space is too low, system takes most

could be better

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

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.

Reception 9/10 Normally pretty good

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 nikhilpatelj@hotmail.com

Build quality 6/10 this because the quality is not really high and on some edges of the phone you can see some gaps
Reception 9/10 its good as i have never had a problem in reception
Call quality 9/10 it is also good as there has never been a problem in the hearing
Internet 10/10 it hasnt ever let me down on the internet usage and its always ready
Multimedia 9/10 its good enough but the media you receive from the social apps so if you install videos and music it will mix them up which leads to you looking for tthe media for a longer time but the gallery is all fine as the folders are there to sort out the images
Camera 4/10
UI speed 2/10
Everyday usage 4/10 not recommendable as there is alot of lag if you use many apps on it as i do, and at times it takes time to open even the dailer due to lag
Text input 7/10
Display 5/10 its average as it doesnt have a HD screen or the amoled screen that is there on the S4 and S5
Battery 2/10 worst battery as if your a heavy user you would need to charge it 2 to 3 times a day to last you a day but for better battery performance you can install easy battery saver from google play


  • has a flash light
  • has a high android system (4.2.2)
  • touch screen feels great
  • UI is customizable since its an android
  • not too expensive


  • poor battery life
  • loudspeaker not so great
  • too much lag
  • cameras not that great
  • low memory space

Camera 9/10 A surprisingly good camera for its class.
UI speed 10/10 It has a fast processor.
Everyday usage 9/10
Text input 8/10
Display 9/10

  • The camera is nice,vide rec. is also nice.
  • The display is very good for its class.
  • The feel of this phone is decent.

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..

Build quality 7/10 full plastic, the silver painted bezel might fade faster than other samsung that cames with chrome bezel.
Reception 10/10 Some device i've used might have problem receving incoming call while i turned on data. Trend plus is fine without issue.
Call quality 10/10 There's and option to set call quality and adapt sound with ear piece..
Internet 10/10 Im able to get 21 mbps hspa+ at this low price, what else can i complaint about it?
Multimedia 10/10 Everythings fine, no lag or any problem. Equalizer is awesome.
Camera 10/10 Overall superb. 1 downside is the lack of face detect and not so good in the dark with auto mode.
UI speed 9/10 1.2ghz with dual core is ok on a small android like this.
Everyday usage 9/10 Small size is good to carry around and operating with one hand, but the battery seems hard to complete everyday usage, depends on person..
Text input 8/10 I personally don't feel comfortable with samsung's text input, so i have to install other keyboard app.
Display 10/10 Good display colour and contrast, it still looks sharp and clear when i set the light at low because there's no auto light sensor..
Battery 6/10 With this spec, this phone need 1900/2000mah to complete a nice day.


  • Call quality
  • Data speed
  • Camera
  • 1.2 ghz dual core processor
  • Colourful display
  • HD record and decord


  • Battery drain quite fast, have to be a smart user.
  • Plastic build feels very cheap, bezel might fade for a rough user.

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

Build quality 6/10 Full plastic body. It scratches easy!
Reception 9/10 Excellent reception on GSM, could've been a little better on H+...
Call quality 10/10 Very good call quality. It actually has a in call equalizer (you can choose how the in call sound performs)
Internet 8/10 Acceptable browsing speed
Multimedia 9/10 It plays and records video at 720p which quite good for the money!
Camera 8/10 Sometimes the white balance can be a problem but nothing serious
UI speed 8/10 The Samsung UX Nature sure does a great thing when it comes to speed and reliability
Everyday usage 10/10 A little bit of gaming, some web browsing, messaging -- all this things without lagging
Text input 7/10 Not a big fan of the Samsung keyboard, sometimes it mistypes -- could havve used the HTC keyboard calibration function!
Display 9/10 Bright and rich colors, accurate touch (although I do not like that you can only press with 2 fingers at a time)
Battery 6/10 For the average use it will get you through the day...


  • price
  • HD playback & recording
  • call quality
  • ease of use


  • baterry life
  • cannot install games on external sd card
  • full plastic body (easily scratches)

Brilliant Mid-Range

Xl0rd has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

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)....  

Build quality 10/10 The phone looks good and feels great. You don't get the impression that you are holding a mid-ranged phone in your hands.
Reception 10/10 Great phone. Looks nice, offers a very nice feeling, nice graphics and some interesting options. However, I miss some options I've had on my HTC. On the other hand, there is LTE! Great thing in this mid-range phone.
Call quality 10/10 Perfect, although the slide to accept call function could be a little bit smoother.
Internet 10/10 Fast internet, good response time, everything is smooth and well.
Multimedia 10/10 Google Music, Adapt Sound, 3D sounds, no "hangers" on the music player, nice camera functions, perfect panorama pictures with no cuts, average games like Angry Birds or even GTA3 can be played nicely.
Camera 10/10 Great, just Great. Nice functions, great Panorama feature. It certainly doesn't let you remember that you have 5MP in the back and 0.3VGA in the front.
UI speed 9/10 If you use a lot of RAM and a lot of phone memory, it will become very slow, but not as slow as maybe other phones. You'll find a solution in my review. I also miss a single clock widget.
Everyday usage 9/10 Handles things pretty well and the handsfree feature helps you pretty much while driving.
Text input 8/10 Since I come from the HTC roster, I definately miss the multi-keyboard functions and I think it is really not so handy to press 2 buttons after another to get a simple , in your text. For fast typers not so easy.
Display 9/10 Great Display, despite the lack of ambient light sensors it offers a nice view even when held against sunlight. However, the lack of ambient light sensors would spare me the manual settings over the notifcation bar.
Battery 7/10 I managed to get it up to 16 hours of using the phone. However, I found a solution in my review. A backup battery with 5000maH that is very small and fits into your bag or backpack is the right solution to freedom for a great price.


  • Brilliant mid-range phone
  • Great, colorful and proportional display
  • Nice multimedia features
  • Great camera with great panorama feature
  • Smooth UI with fast internet (HSDPA+, LTE)
  • Good responses and great overlook of the menu with nice features
  • Games run great.
  • Sound is perfect.
  • All transitions run very smooth.
  • Phone is very easy to handle.


  • No ambient light sensor for automatic light adjustment
  • Google apps that are installed are just waisting too much RAM and internal memory
  • Low internal memory (2GB)
  • Not that much of RAM (only 768MB)
  • No multi-keyboard. I hate to press options and than , to get a ,. It just takes too long
  • Not single clock widget. I dont need dual-clock and I think that the weather widget is not working properly sometimes.
  • No Flashlight app, just a widget.
  • The contacts menu lacks options like prefered saving target.

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.

Build quality 8/10 from what i know, this is a good phone so far.
Reception 9/10 it is a great gaming phone. supports th newest games out there.
Call quality 10/10 i see no problem when calling someone.
Internet 10/10 outstanding from my opinion. the greatest web-surfing phone i have so far.
Multimedia 9/10 it supports many formats of both music and video. much better with videos than my old phone (lg optimus l5 e610)
Camera 10/10 a bit better than my old phone but you can't set the focus to a specific place on the screen
UI speed 9/10 it is the best except that gta vice city buffering a little, but the rest it running at the best performance.
Everyday usage 7/10 it laggs a bit when i have a video call in skype.
Text input 7/10 i don't know if there is a problem with my screen or something but i usually miss the letters i wanna hit.
Display 10/10 good but you can't access the status bar when playing full screen games by swiping down on the screen if you wanna check the time or something else.
Battery 5/10 it has the same battery size as my broken phone (1500 MAh) but this phone's prossessor runs 200 Mhz faster than my old phone. that means it runs dry quicker (if i don't root it which i have done).


  • great camera
  • great gaming phone
  • great for web-browsing
  • supports almost all video and music formats out there


  • bad battery (needs ateast 2000 mAh)
  • status bar can not be accessed when playing games
