    Everything was perfect for a phone for my fiancee but one thing that spoilt the rest was the 1750mAh battery. She likes to play games with her smartphones and this will die on her in a few hours.

    I am gonna pass on this one despite the beauty.

    It was always under $160 at 1949deal. I bought it in February for $156 but the phone I received is defective. The camera autofocus is broken and the battery overheats after 5-10 minutes of normal use. I must also mention mediocre build quality.

    well, if you consider that the inew v3 can be had for 165 USD this doesnt seem to be such a good deal.
    and also – the back camera is not 13MP – its interpolated from 8MP (and the sensor is a cheap piece which makes only fairly decent pictures in good light.)
    for 10 USD less you have to give up a lot in comparison.
    no Gorilla Glass, no backlit touch buttons, no notification LED, no NFC and the camera is at best average with a flashlight LED instead of a LED Flash. not worth it if you ask me.
    the design is nice, but its definitely overpriced.
    The Android experience is very clean though, its almost all the way “Vanilla”, no crap/bloatware.
    dont let the 4.2.9 fool you, its 4.2.2 like all the others. (and yes, 4.2.9 does not exist in the first place).
    if this phone had similar specs like the inew V3 it would sell like crazy, but like this?
    there are a lot cheaper ones with the same specs (but not a nice design)
    if you dont think the design alone is worth 30-40 USD, then do yourself a favor and look at the iNew V3 instead, it ticks all the right boxes, even the design
