    Great phone even for its stats and price with good battery life and performance, not as good camera but thats ok. I do say it does have a issues with wifi tho as it will connect but after a while it will turn off the wifi and glitch and not turn it back off if you try I currently have one and had that issue, my grandma has it as well and had it a couple of times on hers but not sure if she does constantly as she never uses the wifi. Does anyone else get that issue at all?
