Okay let's admit it, at $20 were not expecting this phone to perform miracles, plus the phone so far has performed from average to bad so far in the review, so no need to keep high hope for this section either right? Wrong.
The call quality on this phone is, to be put simply the best I have ever come across on a feature phone. It beats any other feature phone regardless of price tag or prestige and sounds better than most landlines. It is superbly deep rich and accurate, no flex in sound quality, absolutely zero background noise, not even the slightest hint of static or white noise; if your caller goes silent on the other end you'll think the call is over. The good news is this story remains just as fantastic on the loudspeaker, it's clear, loud, and just plain, good, old fantastic. Even the signal bar holds strong and true, rarely drops beneath 3 bars, if ever.
Rather than saying how good or bad the phone's web browsing experience, it's more appropriate to say the phone has the "potential" to browse the web. First of all you will need to use Opera Mini to get even a remotely discernible browsing experience, pages load slowly and rarely with fully rendered pictures, just use the browser for emergency email check ups and plain text sites like Wikipedia.
As for the battery life, the Li-Ion 800 mAh battery is capable of pulling 5 hours of continuous talk time and about 14 days on standby, the battery will last an average of two days on medium use, while heavy usage will warrant a daily charging.
