it's a perfect mid-range smartphone. i actually find it faster than the Nexus 4 it replaced. doesn't let you add your widgets, but if you just want a smartphone for the convenience, then what it provides is sufficient.
the only issue I have with it is the volume, it seems to be set between loud and louder. it's not necessarily a bad thing (terrific for alarms), but when it's just 3 meters from me in a quiet room startled is something I do not wish to be when I receive a phone call.
I also own a Jenny TV 2.8 and a Tank from Blu, both great machines for the price.
