Moi Oliver!


Haha, sorry to hear you are not enjoying your phone.. :wink:

But yes, you can say 'kamala'. It generally means just 'horrible' or 'awful'.


Best Wishes,

Kyllä, minulla on kyocera. Se on kamala.



Is 'kamala' the right word for something that is functionally bad but not really an offense to humanity?
