It is a good android smartphone for $136.It has a good camera and battery life while the OS is old (Android lollipop).It has a good UI but not great.But for the price you are getting a phone which has an Octa core CPU coupled with 2GB of RAM.So if you are buying your first phone or buying for gift then this is a decent option.
