  15. Chris says:

    So I bought this phone expecting basic functionality. Yes it has whatsapp, YouTube etc. It even has an app store. Well I don’t care. To me this phone is useless because 1. It does not have call conversation recording, 2. You can’t even edit a number in the call log before calling just incase u dialed a wrong person, 3. You can’t call a number you received sms from just like other phones u allows you call by taping the call button. 4. This phone lags a lot, 5. It does not hv blacklist function, 6. It has very limited items on the call option button. And I could go on and list more. I want to give out this trash phone. Even typing and dialing number war. Waste of money.
