Is this the next Iphone?
Member Name: evawatret
Advantages: slim and light to carry, android market, cheap
Disadvantages: slow connection speed, freezes, bad touch screen,
The answer is no. With its unresponsive touch screen and slow internet connection this phone holds nothing to the Iphone. Yes it may be cheaper but is it really at that expense that we would substitute the Iphone for this? I have had this phone for several months now and have had immense difficulty in keeping my patience. It has by far the slowest connection to the internet i've seen in any phone, it may take up to a good 5 minutes just to load a webpage! The touch input is also not very good, when i go to text it takes a great deal of effort to click the right buttons and yes it does have predictive text but unless you are willing to spend your time adding all the words to the wordbank then this is really pointless! The connection of the phone itself is also rather slow, it tends to freeze when i try to download new apps and if i try to delete my texts the phone freezes and then after about half an hour or trying to get it to unfreeze it crashes and the texts still remain intact on my phone! The camera is okay, but the lag on the camera can be annoying if you want to take a high quality video.
As you can tell I am pretty against this phone, but it does have some advantages - just not many - but then it depends what you look for in a phone.
If you want a fast connection speed, HD videos, impeccable touch screen well then this phone is not for you!
Summary: IGNORE TEMPTATION TO BUY DUE TO CHEAPNESS, SPEND YOUR MONEY BETTER ON A REAL PHONE!
