User Comment on Product: "I have this phone and completely disagree. I bought it for my 4yo son about 3 months ago, and he uses it every single day without issue. He uses it for games, movies, and music, and it has been rock solid. Sure, it's old tech with a grainy screen and slow processor, but the thing just works, and the battery lasts forever. Best $20 ever spent.
I'm not sure if the people having issues with this phone are downloading all kinds of apps that are incompatible and causing the issues, but I have not seen any issues with random reboots or locking up. My own Samsung Galaxy S3, on the other hand, has been terrible in this regard" - SquirtTortuga
User Comment on Product: I have this phone and haven't had one single issue with it freezing or rebooting. Been using it for 6 months and use it for hours each day facebooking and stuff at work. Awesome deal.(...) Battery life isn't so good though.- qhomie
