So, after years of using iPhone and Droid devices, and with the many scandals coming forward about Google giving a back door to the NSA into your emails and their servers, all the spying being done, and basically our private web activity being sold for advertisements, I decided to get away from smart phones. I figured it was time to be a little less glued to the digital world and bring my life back to reality. After much research, I came across this phone and liked the fact that is had a somewhat \"Droid-like\" appearance, yet is a JAVA based OS.\n\nLikes: This phone is very simple to use after a couple days of getting used to it and it responds\/processes your requests quickly. The screen is nice and bright, but has low resolution, so don't expect a crystal clear Retina-style display like an iPhone. Call quality is good as well as ear-piece volume. Size is compact, thin, and very light. Camera takes decent pictures, but could use a flash. The response of the touch screen is amazing. Battery time is great! I charge it and it last about 2-3 days with a decent amount of text and use.\n\nDislikes: The phone doesn't flip the display when you rotate it like a Droid or iPhone. With that being said, when you want to type a text message, you have to turn the phone sideways to use the keyboard, then back upright when you are finished. For some reason, when you are on a webpage or adding a contact, you have to use the old-phone-style text input, not the QWERTY keyboard. Apps are difficult to find and hard to obtain, so if you are looking for anything other than basic functions such as notepad, calendar, text, etc., then this is not your phone. the web explorer is terrible and Opera isn't much better.\n\nOverall: I highly recommend this phone as a decent semi-smart alternative to giving away your privacy.
1) Very slow unless you're on wi-fi\n2) NO memory and even with 64 gig memory card cannot play games, store pics and constantly crashes! Also every day when it updates the Google aps it came pre-loaded with the system locks up because there is no memory. It's pretty bad when you can't even send a text or store a contact due to low memory! Constantly have to go into settings and remove the updates so the phone will operate.\n3) No flash for camera and pictures are not good.\n4) Straight Talk has the WORST customer service ever and treat you as though they could care less if they have your business.\nOnly think I DO like about the phone is the turn by turn vocal navigation which has been nice since we moved to a new city.\nBe sure that I WILL be leaving Straight Talk ASAP!!!
I've had the phone for about a month now. It works! My friends tell me the speakerphone on this one is pretty good.\n\nPROS: price, ease of use, quality speaker\/mic\n\nCONS: a bit of a pain to access the voice recognition... still working on that one.... too many screens to get to to it in order to dial via voice.
I like everything about this phone except the lack of memory. It's easy to use, durable and has great clarity. The downfall is that while it is a smartphone and has the basic apps, you can't really add any additional apps. I keep getting notices saying I am low on space. I bought the recommended memory card at Walmart and it did not work. I continue to get low on space notices. Eventually, I cannot send or receive texts without deleting saved messages and app or two. Again, a good phone if you're really looking for a basic smartphone.
your product is faulty straight talks is a rip off asn since you w3almart u support it im done with you escecially stealinhg the pre paid minutes I will be sendint poroduct back I was told I will get my money back my e-mail is email@example.com send answer and when I get my money back you have all my information mark p emmons
I have had this phone for 7-8 months and I love it! I am able to get on facebook, pinterest, play games and surf the web with no problems. Phone calls come in and out great, and the texts are great.\n\nWe also live in a small town in the middle of nowhere (the cars are our neighbors) and I have no reception problems at all.\n\nI have had no problems and would recommend this phone to all.

Great phone great service
I had a flip phone for over ten years, the same phone I might add.Talk and text that's all I need. I was with sprint and I had there 450 plan. Then the 450 plan was costing more than my daughter was paying with the straight talk plan. Well I wasn't going pay hundreds of dollars for a phone so I bought this one. I'm 66 yrs old and I love this phone. Once my daughter sat down with me and showed me the basic I was good to go. I did get a stylus with mesh tip that made working on keep pad easy. If you shopping for a smart phone and don't want to spend a lot for phone and service try this one.
I got this phone because i had to buy it with my own money and it seemed like a good phone for the price. It was alright for a while, it has low memory and a SD card hardly helps. It tends to freeze a lot when trying to close youtube or sometimes closing anything. I have downloaded Facebook, Kik and Instagram all to the SD card and still it gets low on space. Apps (ones that cannot be removed from the device, Google, books, etc) will not stop updating as soon as wifi or 3G turns on. Call quality is pretty good and the only problem with texting is that picture messages will not send. Once storage space gets low you can forget about opening Facebook. Plus the phone will no longer connect to my computer via USB cord, nor will the phone send emails with photos attached, so there is no way to share photos other than Instagram. It does not support Snapchat because of it not having a front camera. The picture quality varies and video has no zoom. Though it is quite durable, I've dropped it quite a bit and it does not scratch easily. I would not recommend this phone unless you simply want to make calls. Also if you have any problems with the phone there is almost no support, google literally has almost nothing about the phone so if you come across a problem you have to basically figure it out for yourself.

Worked great while it laste
My wife and I both have this phone for 14 months and have been very happy with it. Mine however has just puked and is on its way back to Walmart. Thank goodness for the 2 year warranty that we purchased. Overall a great phone while it lasted. Internal memory gets full rather quickly but Have a 16 GB card in it which worked well. Definitely buy the extended warranty on any of these phones.
this could be a great phone but the software stink
This is my second smart phone. My first was the Motorola and I returned it in a weeks time. This phone can be wonderful but it has issues. I love that it uses Verizon's towers, its size , and its options. But!!!! The camera sucks. Turning on the wifi always locks up the phone and has to be restarted. The speaker phone is not loud. There is no flash player so you are limited on audio and video that you can play. Seriously it makes me think I may have to go apple cause this android stuff is freaking me out.
Swapped out a Verizon phone for this ATT phone. It made a world of difference when travelling outside my zip code. Would recommend this to anyone who doesn't need 4G. I've now got all the connectivity I need.\nWhen choosing a Smart Talk phone, type in ALL the zip codes you consider important for your needs...you won't regret it.
