Pros: Zippy, excellent screen, great battery life and camera. This phone is perfect in every way assuming you like Windows Phone software, which is rapidly catching up with other operating systems in terms of apps.
Cons: 3G rather than 4G speeds..but honestly the dual core processor makes this faster than my previous 4G Samsung Focus S. Lack of marketing! Nobody knows this model, but are impressed by it's capabilities and price.
Excerpt: My first wp device. This phone is outstanding, best buy. It's very fast, faster than S3. Battery life is great, design is awesome. Overall, I'm very satisfied, but Music+Videos and Multitasking are immature and limited.
Excerpt: Excellent phone, I'm very satisfied, excellent screen, reacting to every touch, no lag ... I could not wait to take it and now I am very happy now. All recommendations for purchases. I do not know why this phone is in the shadow, but it's good because it is more than reasonable price, and the best ratio of price and quality.
Excerpt: Bought this phone for myself as a replacement for my ageing Lumia 800, I have to say well done Samsung. This phone is fast, powerful and reliable, has already dropped a couple of times and still works perfectly. The camera is exceptionally good. There are some let downs though. The call quality is a bit grainy at high volumes, the apps are limited (but that's not Samsung's fault, that's Microsoft), and accessories are extremely hard to come by.
Summary: screen beautiful. very fast. battery excellent. light to medium user and have 50% left after 24 hours. great call quality. loud speaker.easy to hold and very thin considering the screen is huge. pictures and video are really good. the only thing samsung could have done to improve this phone is give it the abilty to make my breakfast!
Summary: This phone is very nice, elegant, powerful, and with the right screen size for fun and work! It has a very refined exterior design, responses to requests are very fast, the screen is very clear, and in terms of memory and processor make it a very powerful phone, this phone competes with the members of the latest Galaxy series but at a convenient price
Excerpt: Great phone overall but missing some little features. The UI is snappy and intuitive, pictures are decent but not amazing. Calls are very clear. Little things are missing such as being able to use your own ringtones for SMSs or assign an SMS ringtone to a contact. Also there's no way to see the battery charge left at the top of the phone until it shows up at 50% or less.
Summary: Everyone on the boards says that Windows 7 was great. Windows 8?? Eh! The thing I dislike the MOST about the Odyssey is that it's almost impossible to manage the memory. I have an 8 gb SD card. I can tell the phone to put new pictures and sounds on the card. Everything else is cemented in place. The phone has 7.8 gb of memory. Mine is FULL. Even when I delete apps, the math doesn't work out.
