Rating: out of 5.Don't buy it
This is the worst phone I have ever had. The battery takes ages to charge and doesn't even last the day out. My mobile is only used very occasionally mostly for texts. the mobile was a gift otherwise I wouldn't have chosen it myself. I have an old sony ericsson which I keep as a stand by and the battery lasts for a week at least.
