In many ways it is TERRIBLE for example if you have one too many apps, the system WILL start to fail. This can only be fixed with a factory reset! Also the screen is TERRIBLE just one drop and it will crack, leaving you with a phone that is permanently out of calibration. In other ways it is okay, it is cheap (was, this is not cheap in 2016) and out of all of my phones it has lasted the longest ( 4 years and that is quite a achivement!) The screen does shatter, but I can still use it. All together (as said before) it is okay. Less
