Nice phone for the price 08/27/2013
I have had the phone for 2 months and I have been quite happy with it.
-It is waterproof, I took to a water-park and ran a few rides with it accidentally before I realized it was in my shorts!
-Battery life is good, I am not a power talker, less than 1000 minutes a month, I have never needed to charge it during the day, but I use it mostly to text and talk, I am not a big Apps user
- the size is great for dropping in your pocket, but big enough to read on it.
-really needs to rebooted every day to keep it running smoothly.
-It starts to run sluggish if you have too many things going on at once, Clean Master App comes on to clean out the memory pretty regularly. I do have to a hard reboot sometimes when it gets bogged down.
-GPS take several minutes to find itself sometimes up to 10 minutes sometimes.
-Due to the thinness it can be a bit slick to handle without a case. New egg doesn't have many cases for this I would recommend getting a simple case at the various other on line retailers.
-Not a lot of cases and accessory's for the phone.
Over all I am very happy with the phone, I like that it is waterproof because I am very active outdoors. I am thinking on buying a Sony Z, just so I can have a larger screen and keep the waterproof. I like the Sony layout and how the interface works without a lot of extra trash that I don't want or am not allowed to remove.
