It’s a beautiful budget phone

from Pocketables

It’s a great value at $180 and a very attractive phone, to boot. It isn’t flawless – performance suffers at times – but the overall package is excellent for a phone at this price point. If you are on a GSM carrier and looking for a phone under $200 then you should go for it.
