Loan phone (Even the teckie had nothing good to say about it)

As I currently own a Samsung A5 (Amazing phone by the way) I had it in to be fixed due to a software update. So I am given Loan phone. In replacement for my Amazing Samsung. Only to be given a loan Phone. THE BLOODY Alcatel OneTouch pop icon. Brand spanking new out of the box. I think they were looking for a way to get rid of them. The techie (who was an expert apparently) said it was brand new, could do all the things as I could on my original phone. Text call only on a smaller screen. I trusted him. Blinded sighted. Within 1/2 it crashed. Burnt my hand, my ear during a phone call and get this. BURNT A HOLE IN MY SHEET. Yes, it was charging overnight on under my sheet. Woke up to a slight burnt smell. Crashed on me a phew times today, Extremely slow in loading and it takes me 16mins to type a one sentence text. I've had the darn thing for 3 days now. (The 16min thing is a bit of an over exaggeration) but reading the reviews and how much it retails for hear in Aus. $40. I started laughing cause no wonder its crap. I would not recommend this even for a 13yr first phone. Brick phones have worked better. AND DIDN"T BURN A HOLE IN MY SHEET. It's crap. My advice. Don't buy it. Unless for a prop for a play and its not going to be turned on. Should have known since the (Tech expert) had nothing good to say about it.
