Before I purchased this smartphone, I had a LG smartphone. I wasn't impressed w/ that one, so I decided to try a different brand when I turned it in. In testing out two different brand smartphones, I realized there are some things that just seem to be common for this type of phone. One issue I've experienced w/ both phones was keeping the touch screen keyboard lit while I am going through automated prompts. The phone lights up for a second or two after I remove the phone from my ear and, some of the keys I have to try to press repeatedly until I finally can make my selection. I can usually bypass this frustration when automated system prompts allow you to speak your responses too. One feature I'm impressed w/ on this phone is the camera capabilities. For one, I think the quality of photos this camera takes are really good. I like that I have instagram-esque features built into the phone for editing my photos. I can make them black and white, sepia, auto-fix, add shadows, saturation, film grain, doodle on the pic, red eye removal, etc. Maybe I didn't play w/ my last smartphone enough, but I didn't notice these features on the previous phone. I had the last phone for a few months before I traded it in for this one. I marked down that the value for this product was excellent b/c I got this item actually at almost 50% off (I think it cost me about $60 before I added the Walmart protection plan). While I realize no phone is perfect (at least not in my budget, anyway), I am quite pleased w/ this phone. It has served my needs well. I'm glad I made the switch to this smartphone. My only wish is that the battery had a longer life (that was an issue I had w/ the last smartphone too).
