Pros: ~Slide out keyboard and touch screen ~Many customization options ~Gives Emergency Alerts ~Fairly easy to use ~Low price ~Has basic needs of a cellphone
Cons: ~Sometimes doesn't charge ~Turns off on it's own ~Claims it's charging when not on charger ~Has issues loading pictures/videos ~Turns off if keyboard is slid out/in too fast ~Very limited home screen choices ~Calls voicemail on it's own often
Summary: I have owned this phone for almost 2 years. It is definitely pretty durable. I drop it a LOT, and it still works decently. The edges are pretty scuffed, but nothing major. Whenever I drop it the back and the battery both come flying out, even if I only drop it from about a foot high. I am not a fan of the camera, though.
Cons: Poor quality, poor camera, can't have a background on homescreen
Summary: I bought this phone because my current (at the time) mobile phone was having some serious issues. My daughter had gotten a Samsung Brightside and absolutely loved it, so I decided to purchase one as well. I love all of the features, and the use was very simple to figure out. The battery life is another story. I am charging it at least once a day, and I don't really use it all that much (mostly texting, rarely the actual phone).
Summary: This phone is pretty bittersweet. Pros 1)Nice sensitive touch screen that responds fast 2)Very clear camera 3)Keyboard is very nice 4)Basic phone = no data plan Cons 1)T9 word does not work. Forces you to use the keyboard, very frustrating. Patch was put in for this phone, but it hasn't been fixed. 2)Call volume seems low even after cranking the volume up. It is one of the nicer Basic phones, but the flaws should have been fixed. I would recommend this phone.
Basically a Good Phone that does not require a Data Plan
9 November 2012
Summary: I purchased this phone June 1, 2012 to renew my phone Contract. The phone I really want brought back is th EnV phones. This phone does look like a smart phone without the expensive DATA plan. I am not happy about a few things 1. The wallpaper being the Menu BAR? Really, I liked my old phone when I could put my Grandchildren on it. 2. The CAMERA can not zoom when taking pictures---What camera does not zoom today--OH right the Samsung Briteside. 3.
Summary: Good: 3.2 MP camera. Big, bright screen. Doesn't require a data package ($$$) through certain providers. Music/sound quality from God. Bad: No way to calibrate or adjust touch-screen settings, which seem dull to begin with. Can't listen to music while accessing anything else on the phone. When choosing music by an artist, the songs are listed alphabetically and not by album - why?
