    This phone is the worst thing you can spend your money on .It’s too slow,jumps and cLoses apps while busy using,am even struggling to type this comment as we speak as I type and have to wait for it to show me what i have typed,doesn’t show me who is calling i have to wait,if busy on another app it just rings in the background,like I can spend the whole day here just wrItting this comment.I need to take it back and collect my refund or upgrade to another brand

    • Reduce your apps ReBecca. Just remove every app you are not using, and ensure you don’t install True caller or any app manage call history or you dialer. Better still, upgrading is a good idea though!
