User Reviews and Opinions


  1. I just got this phone and i couldn’t download Instagram from the play store because they said its not compatible …. what can I do pls

  2. Please i misplaced the little injector pin for opening the sim and sd card space, is there any other object i can use to open that side or how can i open it?

    • Use any pin that can fit into that tiny hole, and the SIM will still eject. You can use SIM ejector of another smartphone, or simply use needle. However, as tempting as it might be, you might want to avoid the use of broom stick, or similar breakable objects.

    • Go to xender, click on the menu, a dialog list will come up, go to setting, click on it, it will take you to download to SD or phone memory, click on SD card, then you click save

  3. why is it that each time I receive a call while playing music,the music stops after I end the call and will just restart instead of pausing so I can play again

    • I might not understand fully what you mean. But it a normal thing for your music to get pause when a call comes in, and then resumes immediately after the call. But if what you mean is that the music doesn’t resume after call, the you should try another music player in that case. Google music app is a great alternative bro
