    • MEH says:

      Best Digital Camera with other features that make you want to chuck it to the ocean if it was a 5G phone.

  3. Judy says:

    Despite the otherwise good features of this phone, I regret having gotten this phone for two reasons. First that the power button is Right where I want to put my fingers to hold the phone. The last phone I had which was a Motorola, have the power button towards the top of the phone on the side. I never accidentally turned that phone off and I find this phone I accidentally turn off all the time. Also where it’s located and where I have to hold it is out of balance. Secondly, is the call waiting feature. It continually turns itself off even shortly after turning it on. What are royal pain! Unfortunately, I waited too long to replace the phone and I’m stuck with it now. We’re considering going to another phone company; it’s that bad..
