I love how fast it is when I wanna message or text someone. I also love how clear and focused the pictures/videos are. The quality is absolutely outstanding, even when zoomed in close! It is also very durable and long-lasting.

if you like to carry a great weapon in your pocket; this is for you: is big but not bulky fast enough to impress, great storage capacity and durability, carry great variety of bullets, so you don't miss a shot and over all is extremely smart, so you don't need to be a genius...
