This phone is the worst phone. Review by Nigger
Unless you're a fucking hobo who wants a phone just for calling (but even flip phones are better than this), get it, but you'll regret it. This phone is literally the worst fucking gay ass phone I've ever used. Shit camera, app picker thingy doesnt work, it just fucking zooms in and makes it clear, shit sound quality, touch delay, power button delay, shit battery (2 hours max), shit volume control (really half assed, 4 second delay), and 3 fucking gigabytes of fucking storage, it would be 8, but they said, "fuck you I'm gonna fill this shit with 5 fucking gbs of fucking bloatware because I need the few extra bucks because of sponsors", why the fuck would anyone need 2 contact apps, Uber, Facebook, 2 browsers, and other shit??? You can't even root the fucking phone to delete this shit. Oh, btw if you want to be an angry person for the rest of your life because of this stupid ass phone crashing games, go right a fucking head, this phone is not worth $40+, I wouldn't take this phone for free. Fuck you, bye faggots. Kys (Posted on 7/5/2017)
It's a $40 phone. Review by Thomas
If you paid more than $40 you paid too much. I have taken several pictures of my pocket. Fortunately, I have not actually butt-dialed 911, but it does bring up the emergency dial screen. It appears that they fixed the bug. I seems to be a compromise between quick access in an emergency and butt-dialing 911.

I do think the volume is limited. The ringer is loud enough for most situations, but sometimes I need the volume higher on some media.

If you need an inexpensive phone, it just works. It has the features you expect. You must add the SD card if you want to download more than a few apps or take more than a couple of pictures. If you want more, go for a $200 phone or just get an iPhone. (Posted on 1/23/2017)
worthless! Review by James
There is NO way to prevent emergency call, pocket pictures and videos, or any of its settings changing while the screen is supposedly 'locked.' Abolutely the WORST phone I have ever owned! (Posted on 9/22/2016)
A few fatal flaws Review by Don
This phone would be OK except for several fatal flaws. First, the emergency call button on the screen lock cannot be disabled. I got a text from the local police telling me to stop butt dialing 911. I have yet to find a third party screen lock that is very secure on this phone. The second problem, aggravated by all the bloatware is that if you install apps on the SD card, you will lose the app's screen icon after every power down. No excuse other than poor engineering.

Worst phone ever Review by Mary
Worst piece of equipment ever made. Just stop working. (Posted on 6/13/2016)
You don't get what you pay for Review by James
I bought this phone in an emergency situation. They say "you get what you pay for". Not with this phone you don"t. Bluetooth volume does whatever it wants, Ridiculously slow right out of the box. My 3 year old Huawei runs circles around this thing...@ weeks old, I got so frustrated trying to use it, I threw it out the window running 80 MPH down the interstate. Google really should at least make an attempt to verify a device actually works "ok" before licensing it to use their OS....total waste of 40 bucks I could have used to start my campfire with......

This phone is crap! Review by jarreddinkel
It just quit working altogether. Will not reboot or charge or anything. (Posted on 3/29/2016)
Great phone Review by David
This phone has some very good specifications and features for a budget price. the quad-core processor is very fast and I have been impressed with its speed on and off of WiFi. Web pages load quickly regardless of the browser used. Streaming is vivid and does not lag. The overall functionality is above board and with Android lollipop OS, handles apps with ease. The camera has great zoom and is on par with many point and shoot cameras.. It also has editing capabilities that allow you to enhance and crop your pictures. The settings allow you to make a multitude of changes to the way the phone works including encrypting it to protect your data. This phone comes with Dolby audio and has good clarity with ample volume. This phone will work with prepaid sims right out of the box and on mine, it filled in the appropriate APN information, allowing me to start using the phone right away.
The virtual keyboard I found better than the Samsung Rugby and the voice to text worked well. Long term use has not been evaluated yet, but first impressions are this is an above average phone for a below average price. (Posted on 2/1/2016)
