Being a first time Android user, I'm really enjoying this phone. I've had it for about 2 weeks. Really simple to use. I'm by no means a phone expert, so I'll just give my SIMPLE review.

The bad:
-I'm used to going two or three days without having to charge my phone, but I just charge it when I go to bed, and don't have a problem with it dying. If I don't charge it at night, I might as well leave it at home, because it's going to be dead before I know it.
-Only having it for two weeks, it has already warned me that I was running out of space. I eventually moved my apps to my SD card (that is included), and that freed up space. But I'm sure I'll need to upgrade the SD card, but the phone itself doesn't hold much. (I think I have downloaded about 6 apps)
-No flash for the camera.

The good:
-Fairly simple to text. I have always been a little nervous about a touch screen. I've got wide thumbs, so I was afraid it'd be almost impossible. Very impressed. Easy to text!
-Obviously, you can't be the price for the service ($50 for unlimited talk, text, and data) and the phone.
-Very easy to navigate.

I did alot of research on this phone before I bought it, and the pros definitely outway the cons. I'm finally up to date, and for a lot less money than alot of others are paying! Very satisfied!

I am a Straight Talk customer for almost 2 yrs now, but I have had bad experiences with 2 other androids of theirs (Samsung Galaxy Precedent, Huawei Accend) that didn't even last more then 3 months before they quit working. But being BIG on Android devices I didn't want to give up. I took a chance on this cell phone after reading a positive youtube review on it and I gotta say.... I LOVE THIS PHONE!! It is easy to operate, it streams video VERY well with very minimal buffering. The sound quality is LOUD! It has several accessories available for it here on amazon as well. It works off of ATT towers so the signal is strong even when your not in the city. I am going on 3 months with this phone and it has worked flawlessly! I do highly recommend you purchase an SD card of at least 16 GBs of memory to go along with it. This is Straight Talk's most solid Android phone on the market right now if you ask me! At least for the price.

PROS:

good video streaming
loud speakers
charges FAST
decent battery life with the right battery saving apps

UPDATE***

CONNS:

Over time the metal around the charger outlet spreads out after a month or so of daily charging to the point where your wall/car charger no longer will work and your charger stem becomes loose inside of it. It's frustrating but I did learn cell phone stores with on duty repair guys do have a tool to fix that.

Like several Android phones, internal memory is pretty weak. Don't forget to buy a large memory SD card.

Now get a load of this, I used to get all my phones from Virgin Mobile and It had awful service so i decided to check this one out from straight talk! And boy it is lightning fast!!!!! It only cost around 35 to 45 dollars each month!!!!!! And it uses at&t towers which makes it a awesome service!!!!! It has lots of features that are really fast!!!! The picture quality is awesome!!!!!! I was hopping for a physical keyboard but the touchscreen keyboard is super responsive, it might take a little getting used to but out of the 5 phones I had this was far the best phone I ever had. it's super easy to activate!!!!

In the first 2 days I had cell phone memory issues. There is only 160MB... Google pre installs apps which take up like 45% of the memory. Then with out permission new apps are installed which are un installable. Which takes up like 15% of the memory. So you are left with very little memory. After about a week the cell phone started to have issues with programs. All the programs are malfunctioning and the WiFi stopped working. The GPS also stop working properly. Also the sound buttons have a extremely light electrocution. Almost unnoticeable. Also for some reason when I unplug my ZTE my tablet Kindle Fire starts to turn on and flicker. Also my laptop stops working when my cellphone is put onto my computer. Yuck don't get this cell phone.

UPDATE------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a Post LTS review. Anyways Ever since I got rid of this devil phone I stop having issues with my electronic devices. This will be the last update for this review.

I swore I would never spend the money for an iPhone - and I won't - but for me this phone is the perfect substitute. I basically only use it to be on the phone or text, but I can get on e-mail if I need to, and I like having the ability to put a photo on Facebook right away. Best of all, it was only $79 at Dollar General! I see my daughter paying more than $150 for her iPhone service, and am so glad I pay $50 for unlimited Net10 service on this phone!

well ware to begin... as everyone has said this has literally next to no internal storage if you plan on getting any apps this phone is out of the question for you. I cant even install a app killer or anti virus for it and that's with the 2gig sd card it came with it will not put anything on the sd card to begin with. I have had the phone for almost 30 days now with nothing but problems I have to shut the phone off and on about 3 times a day because nothing will work it will close out of everything u try to open and make u force close it... navigation is mediocre the internet service is slow as a school bus with 2 flat tires. the screen cracked a couple days after I got it from falling off a lawn chair into soft grass... if all you plan to do it use it to talk on save your money and buy a non smart phone even though this isent much of a smart phone itself bottom line a bogus product not worth anyones money once this month of service is up in 3 days im getting a different service and phone the whole thing was just terrible
