If you want a smart phone that works, sends and receives e-mails, mms, sms and phone calls. It has some good apps as well and even with my big fingers I still find it ok to use. If you want a good camera then this doesn't have one, but then in my opinion as a dslr and film slr photographer, I don't think any phone has a decent camera.
If you are inclined the way of endlessly annoying people on public transport with your phone calls or are addicted to social media and need to send a photo of your lunch to all your contacts, then this probably isn't for you.
But if you want a good quality phone that works, a reliable platform (Android jelly bean) and have a life, this is a good choice and you'll be able to afford a decent real camera with the money you'll save.
I have found that it connects very quickly and drops the connection less frequently than the Nokia Lumia I had for a while which was well over twice the price.
This phone won't set the world on fire, but it will be useful for calling the fire brigade if the world does.
The only real niggle is that if you are using a gps app for navigation it's battery doesn't last long, but in normal use it's liveable with.
