Vrry poor modrl - look at thr trxt, it ia how ita kryboard working %(no rratart, nothing hrlpa, changr of glass did not help. Also yellow spot appeared on thr screen and no way to get rid of it.
(only in gorisontal mode it is possible to type, but some screens like contacts have no gorisontal mode, and it is a great problem to type in contacts)

Paid $1100.00 TT for this piece of shit in a mall in port of Spain. the phone is Beautifully built but the specs is Crap the gps don't work the WIFI gives trouble ,the phone hangs and LAGS alot and trust me don't try to game on this device . I mean which sick mother would put a 512 chip in a phone in this modern times the box says upgrades to kitkat. HA. and don't talk about the battery it is the worst . the bottom line is there is no way to Upgrade this phone No support from the company .Put a few Dollars more and buy the Samsung S4 mini similar built and way better Specs

Guest, 09 Mar 2015Hi, I'm thinking of buying a new phone, anyone who knows ab... moreThey must use some poor quality components inside which consume a lot. Despite the fact that the battery seems quite decent in specifications it does not last long at all (maximum 5 hours when activating one of the big consumers: wifi, gps, bluetooth).
For a phone it might be ok; for a smartphone: forget it.
