Summary: The phone looked perfect but it constantly stays on no signal, always freeze up especially when I'm looking thru my photos & it deletes some of my photos on it's own! I feel like this phone was a waste of money!
Overall, this "smartphone" is not a good phone. I give it a 3/5.

Summary: This phone is good if you never had a smartphone before. It is a low end smartphone. The calling on the phone is bad. I tried calling a few people and they couldn't hear me. The phone itself is very durable and nice. The battery for a phone like this is suprislingy good. I charged it all night and 5 hours later it is still full. Very impressed. The memory is TERRIBLE. You NEED buy purchase a micro SD card so you can download more games or apps.
Summary: This phone is getting no updates from Samsung or any carrier. It gets very slow less than 30 days after you start to use it. Even if you add an extra SD card, most of the apps you care about insist on going on the internal memory card, which is WAY too small. We only got this phone because of the dedicated keyboard that provides nice tactile feedback during texting. Really wish there was a better alternative than the $400 phones.
Summary: Seller experience was excellent. The product itself? Not so much. I replaced a dead Samsung Sidekick with this, and the battery dies within a couple hours, with normal use. I have since replaced this phone with the Galaxy S4, and this one is back in its box.
