My daughter who has just started secondary school really loves this phone and it does everything she needs and more. One word of advice and this probably goes for all android smartphones- do yourself a favour and download a free app called Lookout/Plan B from the Google apps store. She lost her phone at school and we managed to download this app remotely to her phone as she had linked the phone to her google mail account. We were able to track the phone to a specific address in the town we lived in thanks to the GPS capacity- you just text the word 'locate' to the phone and your email address will get emails locating the phone to a googlemaps address sometimes down to as specific as within a 5 meter radius. We sent this information to the school and hey presto the phone reappeared and was handed in. There are lots of interesting similar stories on the Lookout/Plan B website. The app does not work with some more recent Android updates but it worked fine with this phone.
