  1. OMG its just 600 mhz ? and running Android ? ahhahaha u gotta be kidding me, that thing is gonna lag like hell. The galaxy ace has 800mhz and its lags allot how much more for this crap haha

  2. FYI, for battery problems, search for Battery Calibration ZTE Blade,
    there are instructions on how to improve your battery. Netphone is very
    customizable, you can upgrade it to Gingerbread, rooting and using
    custom ROMs will automatically “OPENLINE” your phone. there’s a
    SMARTNET.apk out there. just need to search, and yes it can run on any
    devices using a smart SIM. For custom ROMs, use Cyanogenmod. a “LOT”
    can be done when rooted. I got a Gingerbread 2.3.7 OC @ 700+Mhz. the
    downside is, you’ll void your warranty, heck, just backup your previous
    ROM and if there would be any problem just restore the ROM and have it
    checked, I’m sure they won’t know the difference.Check out on youtube netphone vs galaxy ace. see how it exceeds Ace =)
