At the end of 2014, Tracfone added this phone as part of the phone that use their prepaid service and it add the long list of smartphone for Tracfone customer to choose.
It may not be the biggest smartphone from Tracfone, but with its 4.3 inches of touch screen, it is big enough to provide user with clear view about everything on the screen. It use Android version 4.4 as it OS that still usable and compatible with lots of apps in Play Store up until this day.
The good thing about the OS of this phone is that it will continue to update to the latest version because it was made with partnership with Google. It means that user of this phone don’t have to worry for not being able to enjoy the great things that comes with the latest version of Android this day.
The screen is also protected by Gorilla Glass 3, which is strong enough to deal with daily use so people can expect the phone to be able to stand for long time. Perhaps one of the best things that this phone can offer is the long hour of talk time. With it 1980 mAh battery, this phone able to last for 16.5 hours of talk time and 30 days of standby time.

The phone use 1.2 GHz dual core processor, 1 GB RAM and 4 GB internal memory. This combination may not seem much but it is more than enough to give good phone performance even when the phone was used for multitasking. Just like most of the smartphone this day, it also comes with external Micro SD card that can keep another 32 GB of additional data.
So far this phone seems very solid, but still it has some aspect that some people think as its weakness. First, it only has a 5 MP camera without any front facing camera. It also doesn’t have flash features that could help to capture better picture in low light area.
The last thing that people need to know is that the battery of this phone is non-removable. There is no way that the user can change the batter with spare battery and if there problem with it, they may have to change the phone as well.
Other than those weaknesses, this phone is indeed a solid one. It is also available at affordable price where Tracfone offered the reconditioned one for $19.99.
