Do not buy this phone

This phone was awesome at first, don't get me wrong. I've had two, the first one broke because it was thrown and the screen cracked internally. The second one was dropped on the tile and the screen shattered. It is the slowest phone I've ever owned. I am constantly buying chargers because the connection is poor and I have to keep music playing or else my phone shuts off. It is not worth the investment. Less

I hate this phone because it's the slowest phone I've had in years

This phone is extremely slow. The battery does not last well either.

This Phone is Awesome

I love the resolution and the performance. It does everything I want it to do.

i bought this phone at full price and a few months ago and i was ok with it for the first 3 weeks. After about a month of owning this phone i started noticing problems, first anytime i took more than a few pictures my sd card would unmount and delete all my pictures. Then if i downloaded more than 3 apps my phone was constantly freezing and shutting off on its own. So i took it in to be fixed and they told me to pay for a new phone because this one had a defect that happened before i had the phone. ive never had problems with any other phone and this one has caused the most problems.
