Could get a better phone for that value
7 September 2014
Summary: I needed a phone to use cos my lg phone broke. I thought i could go on youtube and all only to get the phone and couldn't access yourube etc. It's more of a basic phone nothing special about it.
Summary: I liked this phone for the first few weeks because it was an upgrade from what I had previously. I even bought my daughter one a couple of weeks later. What a mistake. If I knew then when I knew now, I probably would have paid a few extra dollars for a phone that didn't give me so many problems. I can go to my phone log to recall a number. By the time the call processes to connect, I forget I was calling someone.
Pros: Able to download Android apps., Like the picture quality.
Cons: Phone Freezes Consistently, Receive the same text 2 - 10 times within 5 minutes., Takes a long time for a call to connect., Apps always force close. Could be the app or the phone., Can delete apps that I have no interest in having. 10 already installed.
Summary: I'm a retired expat living abroad and I bought my Samsung Galaxy W I8150(also known as the Galaxy Wonder) in Manila PH earlier in 2012 when this cellphone model was discontinued. One review website calls it equivalent in specs to the Galaxy S-II except for the plastic case. BUY A PADDED CASE and screen protector! It came unlocked as most new phones sold in the Philippines do, i.e. you buy the phone, then chose a network provider and buy their SIM card.
Summary: It is a low end smart phone. It does a lot but it is slow. The most annoying thing about the phone is the number of times you have to touch the screen to get the keyboard to come up to send a text message. It can drive you crazy!
Summary: I was glad to buy the phone a year ago. However, I found some problems in a long run: 1. Samsung didn't update Android to 4.0 and even did not deliver the promised value pack, at least in my region. Shame! 2. A battery is dead just after 10 months. 3. The phone is not very popular, that means it's not easy to find spare battery in a store when you need it ASAP I'm on a serious doubt whether I'm going to buy S3, or out of Samsung.
This Android Smart Phone Is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G ! ! ! ! !

Summary: I love this phone! There's so many reasons why this is such a great phone, here's a few off the top of my head... 1. Low price for an unlocked full featured phone (have to wait 60 days to unlock free) 2. Large User base and developer/hacker base. Plenty of Samsung Exhibit II user forums to get most of your newbie questions answered 3. Lots of inexpensive accessories/batteries/cases. I paid $13 for a bundle that included 2 batteries/charger/gel case/screen protector 4.
Excerpt: Well the phone has very little available ram (356 mb available to you) Also this has a very crap camera. Don't buy this phone. Unless you don't mind allot of slowdowns and plenty of lagging moments. It has a nice build and a very nice screen. But it has too little available ram too you. Go buy yourself the blaze 4g instead of this.
Summary: I pay $30 for unlimited data/text and have 100 minutes of talk, and if I need more I just use the Skype app I downloaded and buy minutes from there and talk for 2 cents a minute. Compared to the $90 with my contract phone this is great! Unfortunately, the phone is rubbish compared to my previous HTC HD7. I try and keep my patience and remind myself of the savings but popping my battery out to restart my phone because it freezes several times a day gets extremely old.
Summary: I ordered this off amazon, tax free, with two day shipping. Arrived in a timely manner, but just got to activate it this morning. Activation is very simple. The kit includes a sim card, which you just insert above (and to the left) of the battery in the back. Then you will want to go to t-mobile.com/activation and follow the instructions. It comes with a random $3.34 balance.. for emergency.. instant calling or something I suppose.
