    Decent Phone with Some Issues

    Posted
    SethB

    Pros: Plenty of memory for apps, great camera, works fast. Cons: Around once a day it will stop working. The screen goes black and I can't get it to wake up or even force a restart; I have to pull the battery and turn it back on. Sometimes it will temporarily lose GPS reception in areas that aren't even in the middle of nowhere. Last night the phone decided to run an android update without my permission (or even notification that it needed one). Since it needed my password to start, the alarm never went off and I was 30 minutes late to work. I've never had this issue with another phone. Finally, there are no phone cases available online for this phone.

    I bought the phone for my sister, she broke hers. She’s on cricket prepaid. I wanted to pick her up on that would give her access to all the social media apps she uses. For $50 it does that. However it freezes and glitches occasionally.

    I had the phone plugged in to charge when purchased. Downloaded a couple apps. Unplugged the phone, was at 41% opened Snapchat and watched the battery percent just drop like flies. Dropped to 23% in less than 5 minutes even after closing the apps.

    I do recommend for these reasons, bad battery screen and overall its cheap appearance. the phone is very slow. I tried to do a video call after a week of the purchase and the phone died, literally. So don't buy it

    I’ve only had it for a few weeks but so far it has worked just fine; I had one minor issue setting it up but customer service was very helpful and corrected the issue immediately.

    This phone comes with many pre-installed apps that will pop up ads ... A lot. Delete all of those apps and the phone is ok.

    Easy set up and renewal of minutes, having no contract but ability to reinstate service if you forget to add minutes is easy

    Phone costs $10, but you'll be charged $60 to activate the phone even if you active it yourself. Do not recommend.
