Summary: I got this phone a couple of years ago and I haven't really cared for it! My touch screen never really wroked that great to begin with. A couple of weeks ago it just froze up on me. I can't do anything, but recive calls with it. POS in my opinion! I don't remcommend this phone at all!
Summary: This is the worst phone I've ever owned in my life. I received this as a replacement for my Alltel phone when Alltel switched to AT&T. The picture resolution is very low compared to my old phone, the features on this phone are poor, the menus are not the way I'd like them and you can't change them. The WORST feature of this phone is that it freezes CONSTANTLY!!
Summary: I would never recommend this phone and I don't think I would like any Samsung phone after this. I got this phone in January as a replacement phone through my insurance so I didn't pick it myself but I thought it would at least do the job until my August upgrade. I'm on my 3rd phone since through the warranty with ATT I can only get the same phone if there is a problem with it. Callers said I sounded like an alien or under water or could not hear me at all.
Pros: *It looks sleek *three images on the wall are cool *lots of different little apps *can be hacked to remove unwanted items
Cons: *Abysmal touchscreen - poor response to touch *swipe moves way to fast on list items so that it passes the one you are looking for *selects the wrong item as you swipe to find the correct one *shuts off on its own *touch screen keyboard is excellent (if y
Summary: This phone does not work most of the time. There have been many times that I do not receive test messages or calls. My family and friends will tell me that they have called and or text messages. and I do not answer. The reason for that is because I am not getting the calls nor the text messages. The majority of the time it directs them immediately to voicemail in which I do not even get those messages. It is really frustrating.
Summary: 4 days past ability to exchange. darnit. gotta learn to love it, but i will be hard pressed. hangs up if my cheek touches it, doesn't like my finger play, dials when i'm no where near it, and takes 6 minutes to find a contact and dial the number! yike, not my cup of tea.
Cons: Did not meet expectations, volume lousy, hard to learn
Summary: I've had this phone before and this one does the same as the other 3 I had. Thought it would fix itself with the next phone or batch of phones but it didn't. The phone locks up in the middle of texting at least once a day and will restart itself. I've learned to deal with it but its annoying. It is no reflection on the seller at all - its the phone. Wonder why it isn't in production anymore.
Summary: I might go as far as saying I hate this phone. 1) You can't change the buttons on the first menu screen. I don't want to, nor will I ever use TV, AT&T Social Network, YPMobile, IM, or Family Map, but I am required to leave them on my main page. 2) Due to the inability to adjust how my menus look, I have to go to page 3 to find tools and settings for the phone. 3) There are 4 map/navigation apps within the first 2 pages of my menu.
Pros: Lightweight, loud ringer
Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, can't move icons on menu
Pros: None that I can think of, and I am being fair. Oh wait, it does fit in my pocket.
Cons: Let's see: 1. All touch screen interface and the friggin touch screen works like a charm, if by charm I mean disaster. Scrolling contacts takes forever, as it always thinks you've selected something, same is true for drag and drop. And typing, oh don't
