    Great phone for the price

    Great phone for $30. Flagship phone? No, but it's half the phone for 5% of the cost and still Android 6 (as compared to other phones that are merely cheap because they are old, ie Android 4). A real step up from my previous prepaid phone in terms of performance, but a step back in build. I can load plenty of apps in the onboard flash (10 GB available/usable out of 16 GB), save their data to a 64 GB microSD card, and keep them open in the 1.5 GB of RAM. All this leads to snappy performance and not the lags, skips, and stutters on my old Android 4 phone. In comparison the phone falls behind in build quality. The plastic case flexes and creaks when you grab it. The volume rocker is inconveniently placed, at least for my hands, and the volume is often changed accidentally, but at least I no longer power off my phone merely holding it now that the power button is in the middle of the back of the case, which took a while to get use to. My previous phone was metal with a thin layer of rubber and had a firm, but grippy, feel. Not that I think this phone is going to break in your hand, but it doesn't instill confidence. Can be carrier unlocked for cheap if you know where to look.

    A Nice Replacement

    I recently dropped my Motorola and needed a replacement phone. I like that this phone has 4x the internal memory my old one had. I love having a camera flash again. I thought having the power button on the back would be weird but I quickly got used to it. Now when I grab other phones I reach to the back, lol. Also it uses a Nano SIM card which is really tiny. So if your old phone is a couple years old that old card might not fit without modification. I was able to modify my old card really easy using tutorials I found online. The volume of the speaker is pretty good. Overall I rather enjoy this phone. CONS: I wish it had Gorilla Glass. It's really slick without a case. Any other complaints I have would probably be more with this version of Android rather than the phone itself.

    I have several phones of this bent; fairly inexpensive but well valued for what I paid. Great that this has 16gb instead of the usual 8 on cheap phones, but, seriously, do I really have to install an app or root this device to have decent volume in speakerphone mode. As I said, I have other "value" priced phones, ALL way louder in speakerphone mode. If that's not important to you, proceed. It seems fast enough although on a day when my face was sweaty trying to make a call, the phone switched into other apps and started face typing. Not great. For 30 bucks it will do, but I like my LG tribute2s better.

    Great priced entry model handset packed with many surprises, 16gb internal memory , capable of handling 64gb sd card, and apps can be moved in to the sd card as well, make sure to format the sd card and setup as internal storage under storage options, fyi it will erase entire sd, but you can use it as a internal storage, great quality great value much recommended

    Great backup phone

    I needed a phone with <16gb storage and <1.5gb of ram. This was the cheapest one I could find. It works fine. The camera is mediocre, but the phone performance is quite decent for a budget phone. This definitely is a great backup phone for those times you need to send a phone in for warranty repair, but the camera leaves a lot to be desired for using it as a primary phone.

    Marshmallow on a budget

    The fact that you get a phone that has 16GB of storage for $30 is outstanding! I'm pretty sure that most people will agree with me when I say that 8GB of storage on phones is pathetic. We should at least start to see 16GB outright, no more 8GB! And the phone runs almost the latest Android version. Most phones at this price run Lollipop. Overall, awesome phone!

    I bought this phone for my teenage nephew. He has dropped it on several occasions and yet this thing keeps going. I actually bought it to replace the exact same one that he shattered the screen on. Even with the shattered screen the sucker kept working with no glitches, etc.
