Good phone for my needs
I'll start by saying I'm older and my needs for a smartphone are not great. Mostly I wanted one for the times when our power goes out leaving me without cable phone/internet/tv.
For my needs the phone is more than enough. It is fast enough, for me, it is powerful enough, for me, it does everything I need it to do.
Being older my main concern was call quality as that is mostly what I do with a cell phone but I also wanted to be able to learn to text as that is how my grandkids communicate. And I wanted a back up internet connection for when power goes out or for when I might be out and about for an entire day. My internet use is not all that much anyway.
This phone has great call quality. Better than any basic phone I've had over the past 10 years. It is plenty fast enough for me when it comes to the internet. It plays youtube video's very well and has a good speaker.
I had read that the phone was "laggy" but I've seen no evidence of this.
For someone like me it's a great phone at a great price and I'm very satisfied with it.
I've owned it now for three months and use it everyday for phone calls. Occasionally for texts and internet. I've not had anything make me regret the purchase so far. Battery life could be better but I'm used to long lasting charges on basic phones so that could be why two days for me is short.
