Photography can be a pleasure using the 5MP rear camera, which has LED flash and 720p HD video recording capabilities. A 0.3MP front camera provides video chatting and Skype support. HD videos, music and important documents can all be stored using the 4GB internal memory, expandable up to 32GB using microSD card.

Overall User Rating (3.9 Out of 5 based on 58 ratings)
Overall: i had lost my iphone 4s, so had to look for a cheap alternative, i was looking for something that is compact, easy to operate in one hand, slim factor etc..
this phone has everything that i was looking for except the ram and processor, otherwise it is very light in weight, small form factor and very slim. primary camera is above average whereas the front facing camera is crap. although i love everything about the design of this phone, this phone is SUPER LAGGY! would have given a 5/5 if not for the excessive lag and the crappy front cam. buy this only if you prefer design over speed. it is usable, but one needs a lot of patience.
