Excellent phone! The screens are large and clear and very easy to navigate with many interesting features. Also easy to edit most of the features. As for the camera, that is amazing!! Incredibly clear! The night time mode is astonishing. My partner will be ordering one as soon as she is able and can easily recommend this phone. Oh and the battery life on!!
