I have dropped this bad boy numerous times and it has yet to break. The last time I dropped it was when I was sliding out of our truck to pay a bill and it was sitting in my lap, when I stepped out I had forgotten this. When it hit the ground, the back popped off the front of the phone (it does that to get battery access, ect) and that was about it. The battery stayed safely inside and there was no damage done to the phone. Most of my phones last 6-12 months, this one has officially hit the 24 month mark.
The only bad things I have to say about it is, sometimes there is a lag when starting applications, but in my experience that is common across many devices. The Internet Browser on this phone is also crappy. It crashes on me all the time and its bout drives me insane. I use the internet browser to read blogs and articles at night when I cannot sleep. To have it continuously close on me is really annoying. The third bad thing, is the APP selection isn’t that great. It’s got Instagram BETA on it, I wish it would get updated. A few of my favorite APPs are not available on here due.
My favorite features are the camera are pretty awesome. The battery life is long lasting, I charge it overnight, use it all day to snap pictures, capture videos and other random things (calls, social media, internet browsing). I don’t put it back on the charger until right before I fall asleep, which is pretty late at night. It only has a rear facing camera, which is bad. It has a 5MP rear facing camera, that unfortunately has no flash. It does however take video, single pictures and something called burst. Burst is awesome and it makes capturing pictures of my baby girl so much easier. It takes numerous photos for as long as you hold the capture button down. You then go into that and pick which pictures you want to keep. Cortona is awesome, and my favorite part about Cortana is that when you ask rot he weather, she does not use Weather Channel.
I needed a phone for just making calls and decided to
go with a Microsoft operating system. I'm not sure how it
is on their higher end phones but this one is bad, but
what do you expect for $50. App selection is terrible.
I can browse the internet sometimes but 50% of the
time the browser will close in the middle of me reading
a webpage. I also just cracked the screen so I'll probably
be getting rid of this soon and won't buy another.
