I call this a 'girlie phone', since the young 'real men' prefer to jam their phones 'naked' into their jeans' pockets. Maybe the phone doesn't last, but they'll most likely lose it before it breaks. :)
This phone is a 'phablet' and has to live in a purse. If you have good young eyes you can do everything you can on a Nexus 7. It has been a great success for the daughter. Going unlocked means I am saving $50 a month over the old stupid Blackberry, and this pays for the phone in a year. And finally the Android updates are over the air!
