Pro: Its a nice phone ive had it for almost a week now, its good battery life, fun to play with, not to bad to work or understand. Has some nice cool stuff on it more then i thought but not as much as i thought either. simple calculator for $330 is kind of stupid i think. pretty good though over all so far. Con: very hard time finding apps for it simple free ones like a calculator with 1/x key. I think it has a small issue with reading an SD card but could be doing better now as i work with it more price, is high i mean it doesnt so as much as the iphone.. so kinda bad in price Using experience: 6 days good phone, easy to learn, fun to play with and have. could had better calculator though only real thing i found i didnt like.
