Beware even though this is advertised as Sapphire Blue it ...
19 July 2014
Summary: Beware even though this is advertised as Sapphire Blue it is not. I ordered two they both were black. Sent them back and ordered the blue ones again, received black phones again. If you want a blue phone do not order these.
Summary: The battery life in this phone just does not last at all. Sometimes not even for a few hours. There is a general defect in the manufacturing of this product that Samsung does not seem to want to address. This is the second phone that I have bought of this model and both have the same problems. It really is too bad because if it worked as advertised it would be a great phone. This is a really good phone, it just does not work.
The texting works and the phone recieves calls but you can't verbally communicate using this phone.

Summary: The texting works but talking to someone does not. I can hear people but they cannot hear me making it difficult to use this phone when calling people that do not have texting on their phone such as my Grandparents..
Excerpt: One of the worst phones I have ever owned. Quality is poor. Options are poor. You cannot have a pic as the background. It's the menu and you can't change it and the menu will take you to another menu!
Thought I was getting a great phone for the money.

Summary: I bought this phone because of ease of use, touchscreen feature and an upgrade from my Samsung Intensity II. I used the Calendar & Alarm daily on my old phone. On the Samsung Brightside: Calendar & Alarm functions EPIC fail - both features! Verizon denied any problems with phone but apparently hundreds if not thousands of consumers have purchased this phone and have found out and are still finding out that the Calendar & Alarm features DO NOT WORK.
Pros: Love the touch screen. No problems. Love the keyboard -- no problems texting. Picture quality is fine with me. Audio on vid feature could be better but I seldom use so no complaints there. Phone features easy to use.
Cons: DEFECTIVE! Calendar & Alarm EPIC FAILURES! have NOT worked since purchased 3/11/12. Firmware? Old Samsung OS? Software BUG never removed? No answers from Verizon OR Samsung. Brushed off like bothersome fly.
Summary: When I first got this phone, I thought it was decent enough. I didn't really use phones in the first place anyway. I got this phone near the end of March, and it's only seven days into June which means the terrible glitching started only within two months I had this phone.
Pros: -Large screen, -Nice qwerty keyboard
Cons: -Laggy, -Color scheme options... so bad., -Design
