Excellent Smartphone for light user

 

For security and a light user, you can't beat the price if all you need is a $99 1 year card. Text, search web, call anywhere in U.S., play music. Use Units (minutes) or jump on a wifi to save Units. VZ, ATT, etc. plan for a year.This product is......

Inexpensive, but has all smartphone features

Still waiting to find out

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

Great coverage when traveling

Decent backup phone, sorta sluggish.

 

Its a decent phone that gets the job done me and my girlfriend share it as a business and professional phone. It was froze once or twice put a quick battery pull fixes that. Having bluetooth and wifi are really handy also.

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

Consumer review by:

Great no contract phone with WIFI

 

Great no contract phone with all the features of a smart phone. You can even use WiFI, so you don't have to use airtime minutes when using the web. Really like it.This product is... replaced my previous tracfoneAbout me... Use for phone calls only,...

Easy to use, at a reasonable price

Nothing

Consumer review by:

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
