I am satisfied with the eBay service and with my purchase.
8 May 2012
Summary: To be the most useful, I highlight the features that could be improved. 1. The disk supplied with the phone is in Korean only. I would like to have it in Russian or in English. 2. The font in the Menu is a little too small for me. It is not easy to study the functions of the phone. I am quite satisfied with the eBay and PayPal services. In total, I am satisfied with the purchase.
Excerpt: i dont know when it is going to upgrade to froyo but when it will upgraded to froyo this phone will still miss the flash. here is quick review 1. the phone is have good capacitive touch screen and very responsive but display resolution is too poor for reading and all. 2. it has 667 mhz processor which is also good but it lacks of when start numbers of applications. 3. the touchwiz interface is best at the time you can have in phone.
Pros: Price..., screen size, social integration, touch interface
Cons: Memoray, batter life, no 3d games, no flash in future as well because of adobe specs
Summary: As a budget device I have no problems with this. The screen however is of poor resolution and looks rather grainy, great that it is a capacitive screen though. Now somewhat dated. Even after a year or so. A Reasonable budget level device. Just don't expect the world from it and you won't be disappointed.
Summary: Got this phone off a friend who bought it but didn't use it at all. So imagine how shocked I was when I found out how quickly the battery runs out. I only started to use the phone 4 days ago and I've charged twice already with just a phone call, 15 texts a day with less than 5 min. on the internet a day!!! I came on the site to see if anyone else has encountered the same problem and sure enough it was mentioned.
A good not-so-expensive smartphone but battery poor

Summary: I bought this pone back in June this year from the CPW. It is very easy to use, touch screen is responsive, the swype text feature is good, although takes a bit of getting used to. The camera at 3 or so MP is ok - best used for outside shots as there's no flash. My main gripe is the battery. I find it dies too quickly - I'd say I need to charge it every other day and that's just a few calls/texts each day.
Better than other cheap Androids, but still not recommended

Summary: I've had 4 or 5 budget Android phones now, and they've all disappointed. The Galaxy Apollo is no different, with a few good surprises but also a few flaws. First: the good. The Galaxy Apollo is stable - it's the first Android I've had that hasn't crashed on me once. I almost want to give it five stars for this alone. It's fair to say that some apps have crashed, but it's a real achievement for the OS to remain running when they do.
Summary: I needed a phone which allowed me to watch videos, after some research i fount the smart / iphones have the video support to play AVI files etc. Normal phones only play 3GP. The cheapest phone i found that met my needs is the Samsung Apollo, I got it at special offer from Carphone Warehouse for £85 with £10 top up with o2. Pros: Great Video support, plays almost anything, drag and drop AVI files, as long as the video is less that 740x480 which most videos are.

Pros: Pros: Great Video support, plays almost anything, drag and drop AVI files, as long as the video is less that 740x480 which most videos are. Nice big screen but not too big. Great 3mpix camera and video. Has a 3.5mm head phone jack, so you don't need to buy an adapter. Takes up to 8gb card.
Cons: Cons: Although Carphone warehouse sell this for for o2 network, o2 do not support this model, so when you put you sim in and go to "get setting" it cannot. I called o2 and they sent me an email with manual input details for the nearest type phone (Europe) and it works, but i do get signal drop from time to time. The internet works fine but i am a little worried about going abroad in case other networks cannot connect and allow "roaming". Compared to my old Nokia, poor...
