Advantages: Cheap, Attractive, Touch Screen
Disadvantages: Poor Operating System, Slow, & Unreliable
For less than £60, this phone is a relative bargain for having lots of equipment i.e relatively high spec camera, touch screen, and attractive interface, yet the sheer fundamentals let it down.
It worked fine for the first 3-5 months, then slowly the operating system ruins your experience. It spontaneously decides to turn itself off, freeze, or flip the screen face sideways, so i could no longer see what was happening. Mixed in with the inability to download even the most basic of apps, the poor sensitivity of the touch screen(no matter how many times that you recalibrate it), and a battery life of a day even if you don't use it. It can leave you feeling very low.
However for about six months it worked relatively well, although the texting is quite slow and primitive, and the slowness of the operating system is a let down, for less than £60 it isn't honestly that bad. It's no iPhone, but it is a decent cheap little phone. And when you're done with it and want something different, you can get nearly £20 for it by selling it on the internet. Perfect as a child's first phone.
Summary: Cheap, quirky, but unrelaible
