Good: Not much
Comment: It just won't backup to my SD card
Good: It cost $59 in Australia.
Bad: The sound quality on headphone output. Its just basically almost barely adequate to get functional sound but not quite sub par quality audio specifically regarding music.
Comment: I think its a very good cheap phone for the price. I have more expensive phones that are far better, but I been using it all day - ok battery life, processor is far from fast but definitely acceptable speed with most apps, installed a heap of apps I like no problems, put an sd card in. Good stuff everything works ok. Í even dropped it onto concrete about 80cm accidentally no damage or smashing, just flew to pieces so I put the battery and back on still works good stuff Ritchy..
RAMBO THE GUY POSTING BELOW ABOUT KEYBOARD -- The keyboard always stays on screen after you stop typing sometimes blocking access to buttons on screen, its the same with all phones. Rather than wait 1 to 5 minutes for it to disappear, try tapping the BACK ARROW key it makes the keyboard disappear so you can access other stuff hidden underneath.
Good: it's cheap, not bad for his price, 4inch screen
Bad: it struggles a little bit
Comment: it's a great phone for his price ! I own this phone already a month.
its's not slow, but it's absolutely not fast.
it's enough for me as a 14yrs old teenager
if you look for a cheap and good phone, this is what you're looking for
Comment: I'm so pleased with it.
Good: Everything apart from texting
Comment: Bought this for my son and was so impressed I got it for myself too. Absolute bargain at £39.99....sons cost £10 more as I got mine at a sale price.
So easy to use and by installing an external SD card I can download and store so much more. Camera and video features are great. Making calls is easy and I have had no problems with it.
However....my only complaint is the texting feature. It can take about 1 minute for the keyboard to appear and then it will disappear after typing just a few letters, It can take 5 minutes plus to send a text consisting of only two lines. My sons phone does exactly the same. Has anybody else come oss this on their phone? It would also be good to be able to save some texts to a folder but thus option is not available...... And there is no predictive text option either.
Overall a fantastic phone that is perfect in every way apart from texting.
Comment: This is the worst piece of crap I have ever had the misfortune of owning. Basically anything that can go wrong with a phone happens to this piece of trash. It crashes constantly. During phonecalls the phone cuts the call....for no reason. Always stalling and freezing. Dont waste your money on this trash
Good: Look and feel...
Bad: Not found any....
Comment: I've not had this phone long, just over a week, I have owned a Smart Phone before, or a starter one, the Alcatel 983, there's no comparison between that and this, this far outweighs it. The photo's are good, I'm not David Bailey, it has a front VGA camera for selfies or video calling, the back one's 5mp with a built in flash, not brilliant but it's there. The app's are awesome, I'm enjoying myself immensely, for £40 I can take selfies, alter them and message them straight to f/book. It claims to have 4gb of Internal memory, a 4" screen and has 1GHz dual core processor. I'm still learning but boy am I having fun doing so. enjoying doing so.
Good: the camera (when it wants to work)
Comment: this is possibly the worst piece of crap ive ever owned. my boyfriend bought me one and himself one. both have a mind of its own, takes about five minutes to load the basic text or call screen. the calls almost always fail or lose connection. the phone decided to reject my external sim cards, yes CARDS, plural. due to this i cant use any app or take a single photo due to the internal memory being so low. the phones not worth owning. it doesnt do basic android things or basic phone things. two cups and a piece fo string owuld be more effective and that would cosr €1
Good: Plenty of apps. Easy to use. Does most things well. I dont take video recordings or gaming.
Comment: Excellent phone for the cheap price. Definitely good value for money.
Good: Excellent Price
Bad: a little Poor Performance
Comment: Excellent to who want a phone for usual daily usage :)
