hmm, if this is HSNs price, then that means it must be cheaper elsewhere...
Actually, that's a good price when you factor in the Android App deal, and 600 minutes.
I bought one from this offer LINK, for $75, and after the discount and $10 promotional restaurant gift card, it cost me about $56.
The phone isn't that bad, if you buy it knowing it's an economy phone. There are a few cons. One, it's slow, so don't expect snappy menu navigation or app tasking, though its quite useable. There's no front camera, so Skyping is out. There's no camera auto-focus, so trying to scan QR codes might be difficult and somewhat impossible for barcodes. Also, if you use your phone to deposit checks by taking a picture of them, then this phone might not work too well, since banks will only accept a picture check if the picture is clear, something this phone won't guarantee. The screen is very small, so internet browsing will be quite difficult, especially using the keyboard. Battery is OK, can be better if you turn off Auto-sync data, and turn on Limit background data, in Data usage under settings.
The things I like are its compact design, fits nicely in the hand, and easily in the pocket. It runs Android OS 4.1 fairly well. Works great with Google maps for GPS navigation. Speaker is decent, could be louder, but not bad. WiFi works well. Call clarity is great, though that's also dependent on your network coverage in your area. It accepts up to 32GB SDHC card for expansion. Its camera has a flash.
I wouldn't buy this phone as a tablet replacement, but for economy phone usage, and light browsing, it's quite good.
