2. Dual SIM. No carrier lock.
3. Good screen. Higher resolution than the competition.
4. Good build. Doesn't feel cheap when handling it.
5. Comes with all the usual accessories.

1. Sluggish processor. 1/2 star deducted.

Excellent value for money

I am more than satisfied with this purchase, it is amazing what this phone can do with such shoestring hardware. It supports live wallpapers and 7 homescreens with hardly any lag.
