  1. Looks to be a better buy than any Cherry Mobile models at this price poont. No idea however about the unit's durability or the brand's customer service reliability.

  2. Pretty decent specs. If the promo price will hold, it's very affordable.

  3. same specs as Alcatel Idol X. i guess. or not?
