Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrating, slow, and stupid I bought this phone because it was the cheapest option. WOW, that was a mistake! Please, shell out the bit more to get a decent phone. It changes my custom tones back to default everytime it turns off, spazzes out if you leave the "tilt screen automatically" on, randomly moves apps from the sd card back to the phone, and has very little memory. But the biggest problem is that it can and will over-ride you on what WiFi networks you connect to. By which I mean if you need to connect to a network that doesn't have internet, it will disconnect you and refuse to reconnect. If you needed that network, too bad for you! Save yourself the aggravation: get a real phone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not to bad for the money i would say that overall this phone is good. I have owned it now for about 6 months and it is doing ok. The cameras do a good job but they are blurry at times. the front facing camera does well but not as good as some of the better phones and I did have one issue with it freezing up on me but after that it has been ok since. I also noticed that if you install an app such as an anti virus app it will slow the phone down significantly and i have a micro usb card 64 gig and it seems to be good with it.I will tell you this much. you can only install about 5 apps on the phone itself but you could get more if you look at the mega bytes of the app. i do like the phone over all and i would have given it a better rating but the above comments are why.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to like this phone I liked how the phone was waterproof, seemed like it had decent storage and you could even port the apps to the SD card, so put a big enough SD card in and you could put as much on as you want, wrong. Each app has cache data that eats into the phones storage, you are constantly moving apps around clearing that data just to update certain apps, because when you go to update and it tells you, you don't have enough space. Overall the phone as a phone has been great but if you like apps and I really didn't have that many on mine this isn't the phone for you. I have owned this phone for 6 months and I just switched to one with bigger storage, I will definitely keep this as my backup phone though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lousy, inconsistent performance. This phone started out annoying because of "quirks" like putting calls on hold or muting calls, randomly blowing up the screen, turning on airplane mode, switching screens, etc. Store employees say it has a faulty digitizer, something many Hydro Views have. I put calls on speaker so I can see when a call wanders off all by itself and try to get the call back before the other person hangs up. I'm very tired of apologizing for "my crazy phone with a mind of its own." The camera is the worst I've used on a smartphone. Consistently blurry pics and video; not everything uploads to Google pics; and the tiny device storage capacity means no phone functions work if all pics aren't quickly deleted.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Durable I've had this phone a little over half a year, and no issues. dropped, , water and off the top of my car...SHHHH! oops! lol No cracked screen. The product has been good with speed and interface; is easy to learn. It's kid proof. I do have an unlike with non-optional built in apps and the space, especially after updates that take up almost ALL internal space leaving only 1.2 GB with a 5GB plan. Disabling the apps in my opinion, does only that, and I still didn't get much back after uninstalling the updates. It does NOT free up space. Also not a fan of a front camera with only 2pixels, but I will still recommend the phone for its durability and quick interface, especially for parents with younger children.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Its a begginers phone I bought this phone 8 months ago and as a phone alone is ok. Now the features is another story. Keyboard for texting is horrible, it keeps putting the letter next to the one you pressed, it keeps guessing for you what you want to write, and you can not turn off the stupid auto filler. The worst part of all is the ROM memory (memory for the phone PROGRAMS), it is tooo small, only 3.44GB and the Android program takes 2GB out of it, which leaves nothing but only 1 or 2 Apps to be downloaded, then after is full you can not even download the Android updates. Its more like phone only smart phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome phone for the price. I bought this phone at Wal-Mart in an emergency to replace a phone I had broken and didn't expect much out of it. Surprisingly enough, the phone worked excellent. Very smooth and decent camera. Battery easily lasted all day with heavy use. I only have one complaint with the phone and that is internal storage of only 8Gb. You can only install about 4 or 5 apps before this space is all used up. I put a 64Gb SD card in it but even if you move all the apps to the SD card, the phone still thinks you are out of memory. Found a work around for this memory reporting error. All you have to do is side-load apps instead of getting them from the play store and you can install as many apps as you want.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slow texting, low storage, good phone otherwise Bought the phone, because of the waterproof feature, really nice. Put a bulky, cheap case on it from Amazon, and it's pretty solid now. To the phone...It has very limited storage. Maybe +-5 apps at a time. The texting app is complete garbage. It is incredibly slow. Sometimes I can write an entire text, and it takes about a minute for the text to fill in. Doesn't come with any emojis or fancy features. There is a keyboard update that can be downloaded that fixes that problem, however, doesn't fix the speed. Otherwise, just in general, the phone can be a bit slow dialing out for phone calls, but it usually gets the job done and has a good mic. Besides for the slow texting and the low storage, it's an adequate phone and an automatic upgrade from the Net10 phone I was running before.
