Advantages: Small, Smart Phone
Disadvantages: Sometimes unresponsive, slows down over time, memory, battery life
I've had this phone for over a year now, on contract, it being my first smart phone I thought it was great at first.
It is a good little smart phone and has survived my daughter's wrath many times. I loved this phone to begin with, it is small enough for my hands, small enough to fit in my pocket, and any little compartment in a bag. It does all the things I want from a smart phone, social networks, games, camera, texts, calls, WiFi etc.
It's camera isn't amazing quality at only 5 megapixels but it's good enough. Although it's video recording is not the best though, it doesn't record sound very well. The camera has multiple different settings that you can put on for different environments, like night time portrait, portrait, documents etc. It even has a front camera, although not great quality. This phone is an android phone, it has plenty of free apps and games that you can download. I mostly use it for texting and social networks, and it's fast enough going from app to app. Although if you do have a lot of apps installed this will slow down your phone. It's memory isn't great but there isn't a lot you can expect from such a small smart phone really. It's battery life is also not the best in the world, but I use my phone most of the day and have to recharge it over night, every night, I haven't had to do that with previous phones.
After having this phone for over a year, I've recently started to dislike it, as I said it does slow down over time with all the apps and it's memory isn't great. It's started to become unresponsive but I think that may be mostly due to my daughter. For me, the absolute best thing about it is it's size, I don't want a massive brick phone, and this was just the thing for me.
Summary: Great little smart phone, nice and small but a little slower than other smart phones.
