Its a decent phone. The phone part works efficiently, the battery is okay, it works. It is an android, and will download/work with everything android/play store Apps I've downloaded. I've had mine for about six months, it works, its efficient in that it does what its supposed to do, it functions as a phone, and it functions in texting. I LOVE the qwerty keyboard. It responds usually quickly unless its having memory issues/I keep mine to the limit. The web works very well, I am pleased with it. Ive had no issues connecting to GPS, Wifi, etc. It keeps wonderful reception, and really good at always having signal, unlike my old phone which constantly dropped calls. My personal experience with battery lasts about 12-16 hrs if I have gps or wifi or any battery-eating features running. About 36 hrs if on idle, with the apps that I have installed, with no phone calls and minimal texting.
Biggest fault - the internal memory is a JOKE. The 150mb internal, expandable up to 32gb with the external SD card, sounds like a 'lot' to someone unknown to phones, BUT 90% of the apps I've tried do not go to the SD and instead work in internal memory. The facebook app alone is 20+mb internal only, and the internal preinstalled junk is about 80mb. And if it goes below 20mb free space available, it pops up repeated non-bypassable notes about low internal memory and makes you uninstall something. So that gives you *30mb* to work with. In short, DO NOT buy this if you want to have a LOT of apps. Its basically going to be the phone that does one or two apps, and normal phone stuff. You can download any apps you want, but you have to keep it to very small ones, or just a handful. The more apps you have, the slower it is. If you keep a lot of messages (I mistakenly got mine up to 3000 on one conversation thread) it bogs down to insanely slow speeds on messaging. So make sure you keep those numbers low. It has an option to turn on that will help you delete old messages and keep the threads to a manageable number, I just didn't have it turned on (my mistake).
Salesperson in Walmart promised it could Skype with video, it cannot and does not. It will skype with voice alone.
Camera has no flash. It does go to 3megapixels, and will produce a nice large image. But, with no flash, only bright light photos are clear. Low light or indoor photos are usually grainy or dark. Flesh tones are routinely miscolored. I bought it as an upgrade from an old phone I had, primarily to be able to capture moments with my niece, and its a disappointment as a camera. It functions, but only as a record quality NOT an archive quality images. In other words, if you need something to take a picture of something for memory jogging purposes, or to show someone you got lunch, its fine. If you need a camera for precious family moments or anything you might want to print/keep/archive, this camera will likely disappoint in what you are looking for.
Its decent as an entry level android, to someone that wants to be able to keep a calendar and angry birds, or facebook, but more apps and more advanced users should probably try a different phone.
It is very easy to use, everything is pretty easy to work with and figure out, I had it going within a few minutes of turning it on, I had it all figured out. Its a good phone, I think it was overpriced, I paid about twice what I think it should have been priced at for its level of phone, but I also went with the no-contract side, so there is always a downside there.
