This phone has ZERO INTERNAL STORAGE! Even when it says I have enough data for an app it will say insufficient memory and won't let me install/update an app. NO BATTERY LIFE! It dies within an hour or two tops even with almost everything deactivated. Very slow internet connection. Drops apps in the middle of doing something frequently. I DO NOT like this phone and WOULD NOT recommend it to anybody. Less
