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: pro's .includes aim,msn, and yahoo .extremely easy to text with .has tv (which will be coming out soon on feb 09) .great memory space .you can edit the pictures on the phone .easy to use, and learn con's .you can't set a song to be your ringtone if its over like 300k .the videos don't take up the whole screen,(which is stupid because the phone's screen is super wide) and don't last too long
Excerpt: I must say that after looking for over a month for a new cell, I have finally hit the jackpot. This is a great little phone. Pros: Clear reception & speaker phone Great screen Great Pics & videos alarm clock w/ snooze Battery life is really really good! Easy to text Cons: If you aren't familiar with these type of a phone, it might take awhile to get all the ins & outs down All in all, I am very impressed with this phone and all the fun stuff with it - TV, music,...
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.
