2 out of 5 eggsVery Slow

Pros: low cost
runs jelly bean
dual sim

Cons: Very slow. the lag is so great that at times I cannot answer a call (as it wont register my touch)
Comes preloaded with software that must remain on the phone, and cannot be moved to internal storage. I couldn't root the phone, so I basically uninstalled all Facebook, Chrome and Google + updates, and had to re-set that those wont update. (and I still have a storage problem, despite that, and moving all available apps to the internal storage)

2 out of 5 eggsLaggy

Pros: Dual SIM, unlocked, affordable. But considering how slow and laggy this phone is compared to Apple and Samsung phones that folks I know are using, the positives don't count for much.

Cons: REALLY SLOW, to the point that often when I receive an incoming call, the phone is so slow that no matter what I do it won't respond quickly enough to connect. My current US provider is Tmobile, which generally sucks for coverage; nevertheless, I don't think my problems are entirely related to bad reception.

Other Thoughts: Considering other positive reviews, perhaps I'm doing something wrong. If that's so, then I encourage the positive reviews to offer some suggestions. As it stands, this phone is so laggy that I've already decided to replace it. Honestly, if anyone has some suggestions for how to make this phone work better, I'd love to hear them, since I've already spent my money and I won't be getting it back. Otherwise, unless you know some tricks to get this phone working properly, I recommend that you consider something else.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Inserted my Tmobile SIM card - takes full size sims. It imported my phone list and I was off. Updated itself to Android 4.1.1.

Wifi function works exceptionally well.

Great little phone at a bargain price for a phone of this quality.

Cons: None so far...

4 out of 5 eggsnot bad

Pros: price

Cons: Bluetooth audio doesn't sound as great as phone 4.

Other Thoughts: For the price you can't complain. The dual sim feature is niche, and I'm sure the removable battery will prove more convenient down the road. You'll be very disappointed if you're expecting cutting edge performance.
