Been using this phone a couple months now
I bought this phone a few months ago, I'm using the MetroPCS version. At $50 and the specs it has I thought it was a bargain, and I'm not disappointed. It is the best phone they offer around that price, and at $30 now I highly reccomend picking it up.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor (I'm surprised its called the 200, the msm8212 snapdragon 200 has 4 Cortex A7 cores at 1.2GHZ and it's the Adreno 305 graphics. Its really a snapdragon 400 like in a majority of midrange phones) CPU-Z and other sites can confirm

This might not be a flashy in the pants phone but
With 1.5 gb ram and 8 gb internal storage and at least 2 mega pixel selfie camera its an ok mid range decent water proof phone. With T-mobile mentioning that they are implementing the 700 A block spectrum and will release capable devices either late Q3 or early Q4 I might just snag this for this low price. I was going to get a S4 or S5 off 3rd party Craigslist or FB groups yeah people look at your local city for FB sales groups that is the new thing. However, I live in Houston which will be among the 1st cities to have the new 700 A block spectrum in place. My current phone is over 2 years old and this new phone could hold me over until the 700 A block phones are released.
