I purchased this phone because I needed a replacement phone. I lost my Evergreen, but I wanted to try something else different. I am still learning to operate this phone to its fullest capabilities. I enjoy the touch screen and manual qwerty key board.
If you're like me and my family, and don't need the latest & greatest smart phone, this is wonderful. I had bought for my son to replace his phone, and liked it so much that I ended up getting one for all 4 family members. It does everything we need it to, and it's a huge step up from our older phones.
I purchase this cell phone for my teen grandson. He couldn't get over the available technology available contained within. I was so impressed that I have decided that I am going to replace my less technical phones with this model. Item exceeds my expectations.
What is really, really good about the phone: Small size and good enough keyboard as a phone, Not a multimedia movie-watching device. Small! All android. Snappy user interface. Tethers on AT&T. What's not good about the phone: Power hungry. Mine cannot go one day without being on a charger. Not a movie-watching device. (Buy a tablet!!) Keyboard needs a second 'alt' key on right. Not a deal-breaker given the lack of keyboard-equipped phones. FYI, mine came with AT&T logo. I don't care and it doesn't affect the phone, but just so you know. Used on an AT&T network, so I don't know how unlocked it really is.
