Completely useless lump of fecal matter
18 November 2014
Summary: My wife and I changed over to t-Mobile a whileback from Verizon. I have no problem with t-Mobile except with the free phones upon which we were saddled. Since we have had the phones, we have experienced: random reboots that never stop, an operating system that has steadfastly refused to update, calls that cannot be answered, calls that are repeated up to 5 times without hitting send, full on electronic embolysms that render the phone completely useless, requiring a...
Summary: i would not reccomend this phone for anyone that that wants to run game apps, pic apps, etc, i have had nothing but problems from this phone ive had it replace 4 times just to have the same issues happen and t-mobile wont do anything about it. I disliked this phone so much i wouldnt have given it any stars.
Pros: you get lots of talk time on the battery
Cons: it constantly freezes and lags, it randomly shuts itself down for no apparent reason, the battery itself sucks, charge port has gotten messed up on every ive gotten replaced.
Summary: Dont rely on this phone if u want to make a phone call.
Pros: Nice apps but that is it
Cons: worse phone I have ever had in terms of performance and reliability.On my 3rd replacement and still awful. It takes forever for an app to process and the dialer takes (I timed it) 53 second to load up for a call.
Summary: OK, so the phone sucks. But the fact is, Samsung now sucks. I became a true believer in the company over 20 years ago when I bought a, of all things, a microwave oven. I went on to purchase a 35mm camera, and a 21 inch old school PC monitor, plus many other of their products. Today Samsung has become $amsung. Their customer service is terrible, and they now have a way of alienating buyers. They keep producing more and more phones and then not supporting them.
Pros: Allows me to deal with anger management issues.
Cons: Atrocius camera. Very hard to use bank app to take check snapshot. Difficulty also applys when trying to use scanning apps. Screen imposible to see outdoors. Try to take a pic outdoors using the already crappy camera. Loaded with appware. Overpriced.
Summary: The phone goes very, very slow. Must of the time I have to have till 5 sec to go Home. When the phone is blocked and I try to get access to any app, it takes at least 5 sec to validate the pass.
Summary: This is the absolute worst phone I ever owned!!!! Customer service was not helpful and they replaced my phone with the same phone which now works worse. I have all the issues ever reported with this phone. I have not been sent the update as of yet. I tried to complete the update today and it isn't working or downloading. I am a new customer to T-Mobile and have been very dissatisfied since Day 1!!! They aren't helpful.
Excerpt: The most expensive and easily the worst phone I have ever had. Have had to have it exchanged three times in four months because it keeps failing. Overly sensitive when you don't want it to be - no sensitivity when you want to actually use it. Piss poor functionality - too complicated, difficult, functions too hidden. Does things you will never need but can't do basic obvious things - like delete draft messages!
Summary: I normally don't write reviews, but this phone is so horrible I must. I was led astray by the various glowing reviews I had seen here, and needed to replace my horrible Motorola Defy, and this seemed like the perfect fit. Unfortunately, this new phone is almost worst than the Defy was. It freezes ALL THE TIME, and like some of the other reviews have pointed out, is horribly unresponsive.
Summary: Based off of previous experiences with Samsung products I thought this was a great deal, boy was I wrong. The phone constantly shuts off and repeatedly freezes. I don't believe the phone has enough RAM to support many high end games/apps available in the Android or Amazon Market. I would not recommend this phone to anyone.
