I have found plenty of reviews for this phone online but they are all from people who use the phone for a day or two just to test it out and then write the review. I have had this phone for a month and i feel that i can offer an unbiased review.

Final Thoughts: The phone itself to me is great, although there are problems here and there it is just minor stuff. The only "negative" i have about this phone is that it looks to sensative. I find myself babying the phone because i feel the slightest accident will cause it to split in half.
