The phone has some great features but it has a horrible battery life. It discharges while talking to someone. So I tried to turn off everything that might be using battery, turned off wi-fi, bluetooth, all the bells and whistles that it is so admired for, but it still discharges in 5-6 hours even if I dont talk at all! My brother has the same phone in some other part of the world but his phone isnt like that so I am guessing its this particular piece or perhpas all the pieces from Target have this problem. Either way-this one's going back!
Both me and my sister had this phone, and hers would always shut off on her. I had mine for about a year, and it only said, "Oops system error. Restarting" A few times. It's not the best phone, it gets to be really slow, and if you use it for maybe an hour, it will get hot on you. The battery life is pretty good though. Only on busy days would i have to bring my charger with me.
It's a good starter phone for how much I paid for it. And it worked for a lot longer than I thought it would. My sister's only lasted about 3 months, when mine lasted 11. It may be which one you get, or how you treat it.
The camera got fuzzy if you didn't hold it still, and it doesn't get that great of picture. After about 6 months, the quality on calling speaker was blown, so when I talked to people, they HAD to be on speaker to understand them. When I typed on the keyboard it didn't have alot of the words, and it would change it to something I didnt mean, but I do like how they added that you can ADD your own words. My friends had fun with that. Sometimes i wouldn't receive messages, or pictures. It's really bad with pictures that are from a better phone.
I don't recommend this phone if you're busy and use your phone a lot. It's a good phone if you just want to communicate. There's no apps, and it doesn't connect to Wifi. The internet is okay, it's like a lot of other phones, but easy to use. My screen didn't crack, and the phone was durable. I liked this phone a lot. But it's not very good. It'd be a good replacement or a quick pix till you can afford something better.
The restarting and freezing issues were fixed with a software update. The phone reponds very well and doesn't lag. Its largest fault is that there are no free apps except the ones already installed on the phone. There are a few games and services that you can buy but that is really all. Web browsing is pretty slow as well. However, for a more basic user, it can be a great phone to try out.
