      2 & Half Stars:There are better Cam/phone choices

      Purchased this EKTAR as "back up" phone/camera. 1st of all, the KODAK brand raises high expectations for camera ability. As a phone, I have no use beyond casual internet browsing/ email usage. I have only downloaded 6 apps to phone. The 32GB capacity (about 20gb is decent). I'm not into blogging nor social media, so my needs for the phone aspect were more than met. Everything runs OK for non current android MARSHMALLOW. Bullit makes this Kodak Ektra phone (hmmmm sounds like the great "EKTAR" films). Camera wise this phone is at best average (good light conditions) and mediocre at times (indoor flash, dark conditions). Phone was immediately upgraded to v2.010.00a for camera performance improvements but issues remain. white balance is a problem, when recomposing a shot and several images are taken, it throws off balance and gives odd color results. Shutter lag is a problem when using the dedicated side shutter button, avoid it and use the on screen shutter release. In low light conditions strange color banding, fringing, reminiscent of 3rd party cameras is evident (see attached photo). my MOTO g5 plus takes better low light images with its lesser 12MP lens. The optical OIS is great to have but also yields mixed results. the LCD display pumps up the color saturation, when images are uploaded to computer, Adobe PS; color saturation is different. Flash photography is mediocre even with dual LED flash system. The sony provided 21MP sensor needs better firmware to lift this phone to decent camera purpose. As it stands the phone does not live up to the KODAK reputation for quality. This EKTRA is not worth the full retail price, I would have never considered it at the price point. (I purchased for about "fifty" dLs) At that price it is OK, but there are better phone "camera" choices. PS: good luck finding a protective cover

      Get it on sale for a great deal

      If you can get this phone on sale (preferably under 150) it is a great deal. For the specs at that price point it is great. (NFC and 3gigs of RAM, FHD screen and a good camera!) I bought this because it was cheap (on sale) and needed something to hold me over for another month or so but I might keep this one for a while. Coming from a 6" screen, I found the size nice to hold. A 5" screen is not something I would use as much for reading but I wanted something that fit easier in the pocket without the need to pull it out every time I sat down. It is thicker than most newer phones but not overly so, I still like the feel of it even if it is all plastic. To my non-expert eyes, the screen itself looks very good as far as resolution and color saturation. Reading reviews prior to purchase I was not expecting much from the camera but I was pleasantly surprised at the photos; snap a pic and run it through Snapseed and the results look pretty good. Other thoughts: -It has an audio enhancement called BesSurround, BesLoudness and BesAudEnh, which tweak the output some, not the best but better than nothing. -There's and option for adaptive brightness, though it doesn't seem to work (at least on my unit) -Runs a near vanilla android, which has both pros and cons to it -That hump at the bottom of the phone looks weird but adds to the effect of using a camera, some may not like it -Button placement is weird, it's my main gripe. The power button is not where I would ever expect/used before, it's too low and had to get a car mount that did not block it otherwise there is not way to turn on the screen when in the cradle (no double tap, no fingerprint). Overall I would say the phone is good if you can buy it on sale, at the regular price I would look elsewhere.

      At under a hundred dollars, this was a good buy for an unlocked phone. The MediaTek processor does ok for a budget phone. The camera is fine for a budget phone. The RAM is great for a budget phone. So basically, what this all sums up to is that this is a good choice for a budget phone. It's not a high end phone, and it is certainly not worth the regular price tag on it. The camera doesn't measure up to the cameras on the current high end phones, but it is acceptable for the price range and easy to use with a dedicated shutter button. For a hundred bucks it handles everything at or above expectations for phones in that class. It does feel a little weird in the hand because of the hybrid camera/phone design, but it has a lanyard strap. I bought this for my grade school son who has been asking for a camera and who has several educational apps that he runs on it. It works well for him, and is much easier for him to use than the camera on my phone. When he gets a little older, we will probably add a prepaid SIM.

      I purchased this phone for my grandma. It had everything I wanted to give her USB C (for continuity with other devices), Decent Camera and big screen. She came from a budget windows phone and at 100$ there was no reason to not give this a shot. She has not complained at all about the phone since she has received it. As far as the camera is concerned, it could be better. Any flagship (Pixel, iPhone X, S8) would put this quality to shame. It's good with good lighting but in the dark it suffers mightily. I figured it was good enough for her and a huge upgrade over what she had before. It is really big and hard to find cases for which is a big con, I would like her to have a case for the phone. It being unlocked is a big plus, we Don't even have Cricket so on ATT this phone works great.

      Just ordered this phone because my old phone just stopped working. It arrived before expected delivery date and so far so good. I'm not a big electronics person but it does what it's supposed to do. Battery life is good and the camera takes great pictures. I'm the queen of budget phones and this is no budget phone. The only con is not being able to find a phone case but that's cool they have screen protectors and pouches for the phone though.

      only buy if you got it on a good deal

      I did got it on a good deal, but I returned it after 1 week. Mainly, it is because the Bluetooth feature didn't work with my SYNC, it just keep on dropping after only 2 minutes, and I have try at least 5 other phones in my car...=.=, you know we have to be hands free while driving. it also didn't have the finger print feature like others in this price range. Clumsy in design and battery capacity is on the low side. The only reason for me to buy this in the first place is for the camera, and it did works as expected.

      Moving up from LG to Kodak; Huge move up 32G of memory with expandable micro SD card a big Plus Pic quality for $100 phone is hard to beat. Nice DSLR controls for pictures. Please don't compare this to $200+ phones; Its not. If you are going to spend more then $200 then you have more choices. It has a unique look and definitely stands out in the crowd. Go get one

      I have to review this as value prr dollar. I bought my wifes on sale. It was 99.99. plus i bought her cricket wireless as a carrier. Another 50.00 off the phone plus 20 percent off the price of the card. 2 months service and a phone for under 110.00 including tax. Delivered straight to the house. Easy to activate. Sure. There are better phones out there. But, not for 50 to 100 dollars. Would I spend 399.99 no. But I did not. Buy it on sale. Unbelievable deal.
