I love the size of the screen. Great to watch movies. However, there is only one thing I dont like. I've had many problems charging the phone, (sometimes it would charge sometimes it wouldn't). This has been happening for weeks now. And now my phone is completely dead and I can't charge at all.I am without a cell phone. There is a design defect in the charging connection inside the phone. I don't recommend this phone. For such a high cost of the phone, it should not have any charging problems especially for a phone that I've had for less then a year.
