Lasted me a long time. You could drop it and it was fine. Worked well for calls and texts. Not great for using the internet. Battery life was really good as well. Calls were clear. This phone never failed me. I would recommend for a first phone. Or even for an older person who wants a simple phone. Performance Overall I loved this phone. It worked great and never gave me any problems. Would recommend to anyone. Voice Quality Calls always sounded great. Never lost any calls. Battery Life Compared to today's phone the battery life was pretty good. I charged it every two or three days and I used it a lot. Durability I can't even count how many times I dropped this phone. It was always fine when I picked it back up. It got a little dinged up on the edges, but the screen stayed nice and clear with no cracks. VERY DURABLE! Ease of Use Really easy to use. The outside buttons are pretty big and easy to see as well. Design The design was good. Simple and easy. It fit well in your hand and wasn't to heavy. But It was kinda bulky on the sides.
