Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this phone! I bought this phone in November 2018 and it's the best phone I've ever bought! Has fantastic features and very lightweight and easy to use. It is also so durable! I'm very clumsy with phones and have dropped this phone countless times but it has never broken or been damaged in any way. Compared to other phones I've had in the past which broke after only 1 accidental drop and also stop working and slow down after a period of time, this phone is amazing.
