Great Basic Smartphone


Phone works great as a basic smartphone. I use mostly for calls and a bit of WiFi here and there. It accesses my calendars and mobile banking and it is a great backup to my laptop.

Good Phone


The phones takes beautiful pictures, great for the internet and texting. The only thing you have to make sure of, is that when you are not in the internet, disable the mobile data feature. Otherwise the battery will run out fast.
