    "I had a damaged flash drive with a bunch of photos on it of my family. I needed to get the data off of it, so I used Stellar Data Recovery. It got all my photos for me perfectly. I will be using it again if something like this comes up."

      "This is a great phone with Dolby sound and it comes from Nokia, one of the "classic" big dogs in the mobile world. The specs on this phone are fantastic for the price you'll pay, but the link points to an version of this phone with ads and offers from Amazon -- kind of like the lower priced Kindles. And you need to be a Prime member to order it. I'm ok with that advertising, but not everyone would be, which is why I went one star lower. Otherwise this is really an awesome phone with a midrange price."

      "I like this phone because the battery life on it is really good. I can get a full day of gaming and use of other apps on this phone without a drain of the battery. The only draw back is that I cannot choose my carrier. The phone itself is lightweight, I can carry it around easily. It's not bulky by any means. The memory is good and I always have an extra amount of storage should I need more. I've installed a few games on this phone and they all work really well. A great phone for gaming!"

      "For something reasonably affordable to play all the latest games this phone is essentially terrific! Having an Octacore processor with 2GB RAm allows you to play almost any game without issue provided you have cleaned up anything going on in the background before running the game. I can't imagine paying three times the price just for the ability to play the same games that this phone supports. If you can't afford the latest and greatest iPhone or Galaxy then you would be hard-pressed to find a better alternative for the price."
