With its more basic specs, the Sonata is definitely a smartphone for first-timers, from the Android 4.1 operating system to the 5-megapixel front-facing camera. The 1.2GHz dual-core processor isn't the fastest available by far, but it fits in with the rest of the device.

If you can pry off the tight back cover and dig beneath the battery, you'll find a microSD card slot to expand the otherwise feeble 4GB of storage.
