THE PHONE FOR THE FINANCIALLY SAVVY

 

WE DON'T EXPECT A LARGE NUMBER OF FREE APPS FOR THE PHONE, BUT THERE ARE. IF YOU WANT TO FIT NICELY INTO THE TECH GENERATION WITHOUT PAYING THE ENTRY FEE, THEN THIS IS THE PHONE FOR YOU. IN OTHER WORDS, IT'S NOT EMBARRASSING TO USE IN PUBLIC. IT'S...

TEXTING, SOUND QUALITY, TOUCH SCREEN, APPS

CAMERA IS A BIT GRAINY

Easy-to-use phone with great value

 

This is a great phone for first-time smartphone users. Navigation is clear and easy, and the touchscreen dial pad is large enough to use comfortably. Call quality is also quite good. If you are looking for a phone to primarily make phone calls with, I...

Decent if you know it's limitations beforehand

 

First off, let me say this is NOT a smartphone in the typical sense of the word. Sure, it browses the internet (poorly, IMO), has WI-FI capability, Micro SD slot, and does a lot of stuff a Smartphone does.. you can even watch some Youtube on it....

Compatible with Safelink free government phone program, has Wi-Fi

Poor loudspeaker quality, subpar web browser

Nothing

Fits my need pefectly.

 

This is a great phone if you don't want a contract, however is drawback is that you have to continually buy minutes so not to lose what you already purchased even if you have quite a few minutes left.

No Contracts

You have to keep buying minutes to keep what you have

Great phone for a beginner

 

Since I'm not smart enough for a smart phone yet, and rather technically challenged; this phone was a great first choice touch screen for me. I am used to a flip phone, because I thought touch screens were too fragile and expensive. Albeit small, (even...

It's easy to use and no high contract bill.It was relatively cheap for early touch screen

You can't see your text, or replies, and internet is obviously way slow and confusing to use

Everything OK

Great phone with great features.

 

Love the phone and the camera features. It provides sharp and vibrant pics. It definitely takes time to learn the many features the phone has to offer. Phone is quite pricey in cost, and big in size where you can't fit in your pants pocket.This product...

Phone has many camera features and takes bright pics

The phone takes a long time to charge; and too large for a phone
