To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
To be fair, wasn't in the market for a posh or latest smartphone. Just looking for a cheapie that could handle calls, texts and the odd email. Bluetooth would have been a nice to have so I could make calls from the car. Was all set to get a second hand job, then I saw this and am quietly impressed.
Why I like it 1) It turned up two days early in a plain brown manilla envelope with no fuss 2) It has a headphone jack and replaceable battery 3) The Google Go software installed isn't great but is good enough for me. 4) Has a very long battery life. Have only flattened the battery once so far
Why I don't like it 1) Poor Wifi. Did take six attempts to connect to wifi but not complaining. What do you expect from a cheap mobile
2) It eats sim cards. This one is worth remembering. Be very very careful installing a sim card. If you push too hard or too far the card will disappear into the body of the phone, never to be seen again. I had to attack mine with a pair of pliers and small screwdriver to get it back. Consequently the insides of the phone look like they're been chewed by a dog but fair play, it's still working
Overall I like it. Don't know if it will stand the test of time as I tend to abuse phones and some of the plastics have a very cheap feel to them but compared to my old Alcatel Pixi it's a breath of fresh air that does the minimum very well.
Good for long battery and although have internet, I do not give it 5 stars, because I do not lead anyone into deceit they are getting the latest model of Apple or Samsung, the main parasites. It s really fast and I give it 5 stars for what it is.
