Good: It's a reliable budget smartphone!
Bad: Not much!!
Comment: It's a budget smartphone, full stop.
I use a phone to make/receive calls, the odd text, check my emails and as long as it has bluetooth for the car it's fine by me. OK the camera is poor but I didn't by it for that, I use a proper camera for photos.
If you want an all singing and all dancing smartphone then spend a fortune on something else.
I paid £80 for it (new) and as far as I'm concerned it meets all my needs and found it extremely reliable!
Good: Price, Size & Its user Friendly
Bad: Camera, Touch, screen resulation
Comment: 1 weeks ago i own it. i had a cheap budget for phone but i was searching for andriod phone.. then i own it.. it full fills my need,, but i am little Disappointed for camera and touch
Good: Size, Good photos in daylight only
Bad: Glitches galore, updates, notifications, no flash for pic, screen touch, linking contacts,
Comment: For the first few minutes I thought phone was good until I tried adding contacts and then hit the first glitch - you couldn't get past the First name field - cursor kept returning to first name field. Screen touch isn't responsive so game playing is not successful, the update wiped out all my contacts after all the trouble I had loading them in the first place, there's no flash and night time shots look grainy, linking contacts doesn't work properly and can't separate notification from facebook to SMS
Good: Very pocketable, stable and trouble free operation
Bad: Camera lacks flash and gives poor results
Comment: I wasn't in the market for a smart phone but simply couldn't refuse TalkTalk's £5 per month deal to existing customers. I've been impressed it for the price.
Typing can be difficult in Portrait orientation, so flip the phone to Landscape. The camera really is poor in anything other than decent sunlight. Sounds great on headphones if you use a graphic EQ app.
Comment: nice..... and easy to operate
Bad: I can't browse wit it
Comment: since i brought this phone i can't browse eith the phone,the browser setting is not enable.
Good: Holy crap it's cheap - £60!
Bad: It's Android...
Comment: On promotion at only £60 pay as you go, I got this to treat as a dumb feature phone, and the best (and only important) feature is using it as a personal wifi hotspot for my iPod. Seriously, it's cheaper than a MIFI, and takes calls and texts too.
Good: Andoroid phone with less budget
Comment: Nice phone with great features and easy on pocket.
Good: SMALL BUT FILLED MY EVERY NEED
Bad: CAMERA BUT STILL OK
Comment: it can play 720p video video but better to play 480p
camera is not bad at all,i can capture photo in night mode
gaming is also not that bad i can play shadow gun,most wanted almost smoothly\
and the biggest thing i ike in tis phone is loud speaker its excellent......
*it worth that money*
Bad: Almost eveything
Comment: This phone is not upto the mark. It has a poor touch sensitivity and the processor is too slow that you can hardly any new apps. Not worth buying.
