Good(only for the first few months)
Member Name: philc2308
Advantages: Does live up to some of the life proof boasts
Disadvantages: Bad battery life and crashes a lot, also rubber protectors come off easily.
I first noticed this phone when I occasionally caught the advert on t.v, I then decided to look for a new phone for my upgrade and when i saw i could get a better deal and this phone for half my contract at the time, i took the offer.
i was drawn to it because of its apparent capabilities (life proof), I thought this would be perfect for me as my previous phone was a mess after 18 months.
When i received the phone i was very impressed, slightly bigger than i thought and had more of a rugged look compared to other smartphones i had seen, but nonetheless i was still excited, once i had got used to the bigger screen and the features of the phone i was very happy, within the first few weeks i had dropped the phone a few times, sometimes accidentally flinging it across the room when it slipped out of my hand. and i was impressed at the lack of scuffs and scratchs(barely a mark had been made on it).
but then after 6 months the phone started to develop signs of its downfall, mainly software issues, phone began to crash every few days, battery life started to drain quicker.
and then after 12 months the speaker for the headset had died, luckily i was under warranty and it was fixed, but during this time the phone started to crash alot more and sometime i wonder if the battery life exists on this phone as i may be lucky to get 12 hours from it.
I have become disappointed with this phone over time and i am looking forward to six months time when i can upgrade and hopefully get a better phone.
Summary: Good phone but a lot of faults.
