So so phone, packed with spyware

This phone is not bad overall if it wasnt of the following point, seriously ... :
- The Internal USB Debugging mode doesnt work as expected. So there no way to 'develop' applications as Google intented us to does.
- Secondly, they disabled the WIFI HOTSPOT (or choosed a provider of cellphone which wouldnt support it through FCC) which suck big time, THANK TO PDANET to go around that so you can share your phone net to your android tablet easy.
- Thirdly, when you try to contact UMX, the manufacturer of the phone, you soon realize that youve hit a front-facing company, which absolutly no answer, even if you email several time, call multiple state number and write a normal courrier letter to get the propers drivers for Windows 7 x64 for usb debugging. Basicly, no support at all.
- It is freaking slow, packed with spyware such as EasyWIFI which, if you deactive it within the application, still run at the back, and cause lag on your phone, every X amount of second due to the service always restarting out of no where. If you look if the current running application/service, and that you have deactivated your EasyWIFI, try to listen to a song with some bluetooth headset, that the easiest way I've found to recreate the issue. As soon as I reactivated EasyWIFI (WHICH I DONT WANT), the lag was gone. To me, a application that is unwanted, cant be removed, with my phone by lagging it when I deactivated the thing, and that send unwanted information through internet IS indeed a spyware.
That for this reason that, I will definitly put a 0/5
