Easy to use and understand--especially for the older generation...
3 December 2011
Summary: I'm one of those 50-plus year old guys that likes simplicity with a phone...I bought a 'windows' phone and was aggravated with it from the beginning! (I had dropped the SGH-A827 into the water bucket at the gas station) Upon giving the 'windows' phone to my daughter, I went and bought another Samsung SGH-A827 and love it! Easy to use and understand. Nice screen size and you can get them used for around $ 40.
Summary: Overall it is an excellent phone. I have had it for the past 3 weeks and I have only found one very minor fault with it. The vibration when you put it on silent vibration mode is on the weak side. This can also be a plus in some cases because, I have had other phones that you could hear vibrating away and I would have to put them on silent mode. It is very user friendly, simple to operate with outstanging reception and good speakerphone.The camera is excellent aswell.
Summary: The Samsung SGH A827 has very good reception compared to the other phones I have used. With my other phones, many times I would have to go outside of house to talk. With this phone, there is no problem.
Excerpt: I wanted a TV phone, but didn't want the price tag of the Vu. This phone would be really boring if it wasn't for the TV. I watch it all the time. I really do like it and think it is a decent phone, but I think I am going to just deal, and buy the Vu, which I enjoyed very much when using it at the store.
