Rated 3 out of 5 by from DEAD I bought this phone as an upgrade to my ZTE Grand MAX 2 after that phone fell into the water. At the time of purchase last July, this phone was rated one of the best phones. I have had it for 7 months, and woke up today to find it is dead. I plugged it in to charge, as always, and when I woke up it won't turn on and the power button does absolutely nothing. Tried searching online for information, and it seems that there is no answer on how to fix this. I loved this phone right up until this morning. I will be going to the Cricket store in my area when they open to see if they can help, but I will most likely have to purchase another phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great hardware, terrible software The phone is great looking, screen is beautiful. Pictures aren't great but at the price that's to be be expected. What is really terrible though is 2 things. 1st Facebook videos do no play, google this issue you will find many others with the same issue. There is no fix. 2nd the phone randomly crashes and reboots itself. So you can be in the middle of a call/text and the screen will just go black and the phone will reboot. The real shame is that the physical phone is excellent it just spoiled by unreasonably bad software. I would advise you stay away.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Videos Skip to the End In a rush after my Galaxy refused to turn on, I bought this phone because of its size and great screen. I'm on my 3rd day and have noticed that all videos whether it is FB or YouTube skips to the end! I goggled this and found so many people have the same problem. After years of iPhone then years of Galaxy...I can't deal with this issue. The price point is great but a no because of this issue. It also has some instances of freezing when trying to multitask too fast or the visual voicemail going black. Back to the Cricket store I go!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from STAY AWAY!!!!! I purchased this phone when it came out and it was perfect, it was fast, love the screen and it takes WONDERFUL pictures. I understand that as you add apps and take pictures with your phone it becomes slower, so I purchased a memory card to move the apps to it as well as the pictures. It still remain slow, I factory reset the phone at least once a month and guess what it still remains slow. Not to mention when I watch videos regardless if it's with FB, YT, IG, SC, Google, oh and my OWN videos, it always skip to the end. Whoever created the software for this phone needs to be fired ASAP. DO NOT GET THIS PHONE IT IS A WASTE OF MONEY!!!!! It's really for someone who only talks and texts on their phone and nothing else

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Using the phone for work and fun I have been using this phone for 4 months now and have been pleased. I use it for work (email, calendar, texting) and personal (gaming, videos, podcasts, and music). I have not had any video issues but I mostly look a videos through google (or chrome) and not facebook. Battery life has been great. I very rarely need to charge in the middle/end of the day. Pictures could be a little better but the embedded software helps improve the cameras. Overall a great phone if a big screen and a big battery is what you are looking for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful phone Even though Ive seen nothing but bad reviews about other peoples experiences with this phone, I still went ahead and got it & I couldn't be happier with my decision. Absolutely everything about the phone is great. The camera isn't perfect but its good enough for me & I am quite picky. With the activation and insurance I paid one-ninety something which was nothing. If this phone was $400 it would still be worth it to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone I've had this phone for about 3 months and I haven't had one single issue. I'm a truck driver otr, and mine plays fb videos, YouTube, and I watch my Netflix and Hulu all the time on my phone. You won't b disappointed by this phone. If you are, you don't know how to use tech.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seriously disappointed. I've had this phone for a few months, and it's probably one of the biggest disappointments I've had so far. I bought it for the bigger phone storage (16 gb vs my previous 8 gb) at the reccomendation of the sales associate, saying this phone was ranked #4 against the galaxy series and iphones. It was fine at first, almost perfect. But now? The furthest from it. For starters, it shuts off at least once a day. And it won't play facebook videos. It skips right to the end. Pictures I take with my camera appear at first, and then become distorted later when I choose to send them. If cricket wasn't so stingy, I would've already replaced this phone. Biggest waste of money ($200 at the time), don't purchase it.
