Yep but it takes a while if its a cold lock. But gps is awesome outdoors. Best I have ever seen on a phone! Locks in almost instantaneously if you have a data connection (I have 2G).
I'd say battery behaves more like the 2000-2500mAh battery on my 4.7" Xolo Play T1000. On a 12 hour workshift, I need to charge it in my workplace. On a 6 hour shift, it can last me. It would help to buy an extra battery (costs ~490 bucks off ebay).
Playing PVZ2 for ~1 hour sucks 35-40% of the battery.
I am a moderate to heavy user as you can imagine
