I've used this device for almost 2 weeks now and enjoy it immensely! I really like the thinness of this smartphone, but the primary reason I bought it: the 12MP camera! I've been scouting on Amazon for the Huawei Honor 7x and newer but they cost around $200 each!

If you do buy this device at a local Target, do yourself a favor and get a case for it, as it is very slippery to carry. [I bought a nice wallet-type case on eBay for $3.99 that works wonders with this device! The seller is in the USA as well, so no need to wait for delivery from China/Taiwan, either!]

The only drawback I've encountered so far: Minion Rush requires Facebook (which stores Cloud-based game progress) won't be able to find your progress, as you are unable to log in with Facebook on the game app. I've spoken with Huawei USA customer support and they should have an OTA update within the next 20 days or so. FYI: The Facebook app works fine on this device; just when Facebook is embedded into the app is when Facebook doesn't function.

Good if you can find it. I needed a burner like this right now, but it's OOS anywhere brickseek can even search remotely near me, even if i was willing to drive quite a bit

Decent budget phone. Picked up the At&t Prepaid version for a friend of mine and she's been happy with it for the last 6 months. This is a nice deal if ya need a cheap phone and will be staying with Cricket for a while.

Looks like an excellent deal, and the only store that has it happens to be the one closest to me. Must be my lucky day! This will be a great first phone for my daughter.

Thanks!

I purchased the last 4 at my local Target yesterday evening. I had purchased one at the Morgantown, WV Target on June 24th at the price of $32.48 (pre-tax) and noticed the price drop exactly 14 days later at the Triadelphia, WV Target. The receipt only mentions the device may be returned up to 30 days later, but nothing about the 14-day limit for price reductions. I had to visit the local Triadelphia Target to find this out after 5 minutes of asking if a manager could assist. Their system is set up stupid....any mobile phone return is automatically classified as "defective" -- even if it isn't defective! So, even if I wanted the price refund, I would lose out on owning the phone. The reason for needing all 5 is that we have 5 members on a family plan, and all of them liked the phone I bought.

A bit of bright news, though. I wrote to Target on their dot-com live chat and they are issuing me a $13 eGift Card "as an exception" since the online staff thinks Clearance items can't be price reduced.

Oh, if anyone is close to the Morgantown, WV Target, they had 2 more available, as of June 24th. Possibly call in advance if that's a far drive, just to be certain; one was in the normal display section of their mobile phones; one was in the Clearance area 6 aisles over -- with the box being ripped a bit.

*Edit: Brickseek shows this item is out-of-stock at Morgantown, WV. You would have to check the store in person, if you feel extremely lucky.

Would you elaborate on this? Specific examples, please! [I have a vendetta on Samsung products, and won't buy them anymore. The Samsung Impression left a very poor impression of Samsung on me with their lackluster customer service on a few bugs they refused to fix, for example.]

I brought this phone a few months ago when my daughter and about 1-2 months after its use the speaker start to go in and out. Fortunately, I called cricket and they gave me replacement phone (which was new).

That said, I brought this phone 2 weeks ago when it was priced about $32.48. Probably going to sell it off in ebay in a month or 2.
