I think you have to get your phone formated, it may be because of corrupted software and this happened after android update.

It's good.
I liked this phone very much. The only problem I am facing is the heating issue. The phone gets too hot, during charging and while using internet. The best thing is it never hangs or lags. The sound is awesome both on speakers as well as on headphones. The audio enhancer is just fabulous.
