Ill keep it brief. This phone doesnt have a lot of bells and whistles. The 'internet' part of the phone reminds me of a dos program... its really really basic and crappy... but good enough for checking email if you use something like AOL, or just checking the weather.
But you arent buying this phone because you want an Iphone 9. You are buying this phone because you can drop it, dunk it, sit on it, toss it down the stairs, use it as a chew toy or any other number of abusive things you shouldnt do to a phone and it will keep on working. It took me 3 years to finally break mine after tons of mountain bike crashes, drops, being in water constantly... finally some saltwater got into the charger port which somehow came open and it died.
This phone is hardy, period. Not fancy, but durrable as can be. Its also loud, the front speaker is great you can hear the speaker phone loud and clear from 10 feet away.
Keep in mind there are two versions of this phone, one with a front speaker and one without. Get the one with the front speaker its better. I just got the new orange version, with no front speaker and I like the other one better.
