Worst product I've had
8 November 2011
Summary: I have to say that this is the worst phone I've ever had. First off the touch screen is not calibrated at all and there's no way to calibrate it either. When I touched the call logo it went to the menu and when I touched the menu it went to contacts and so on. Second, the response on the touch screen was very slow.
Summary: This "smart" phone does nothing without Internet. All that my wife wanted was a phone that would keep her calendar and events. I decided to buy her something a little better and purchase an Android. She cannot store calendar events on this phone because it requires Internet. No problem, we took it to wi-fi.
Summary: Do not waste your money on this!!! The phone is all but unusable. The screen is tiny & it is impossible to hit the right key when texting. To say the phone is not user friendly would be an understatement of the highest order. A piece of garbage. If you want one you can pick mine out of the dustbin as I threw it away!! The worse phone I have ever (tried) to use!!!!!
Summary: I bought this from Carphone Warehouse about 1 and 1/2 years ago. For the first month I thought this was brilliant- it had lots of features similar to expensive smartphones, it ran well and was easy to use. However, later on I was less pleased, the screen's sensitivity is awful (I ended up having to rely on the key pad), the screen scratches so easily (mine did within 2 days), poor storage space (after downloading 2 games it said the storage was full), very slow to run,...
Summary: I have had this phone for over 2 years now. I don't use it all the time anymore, since I have a GS4 now, but I still keep it as a spare phone and use it once in a while. It is painfully slow (it's on Froyo by the way, got mine locked to 3 from CPW) and it has an annoying glitch: virtual keyboard stays on screen even when you have finished typing.
Summary: Texting on this phone is so "fiddly". The keys are so close, making it tricky to construct a text quickly. Also, when I press and hold a key for a number, the number doesn't appear. Instead, a series of letters appear. Very frustrating.
Summary: FREEZES ALL THE TIME! TEXTING IS A NIGHTMARE. IT TURNS OFF WITHOUT ANY NOTICE AND THEN DOES NOT SWITCH ON AGAIN UNTIL BATTERY IS TAKEN OUT AND PUT BACK IN!LETS FACE IT...IM A FAN OF SAMSUNG BUT I HAVE TO SAY THEY REALLY BLEW IT ON THIS ONE. THIS PHONE ISNT MADE FOR ANDROID.THE WORST PROBLEM IS THE WIFI JUST TURNING OFF WITHOUT WARNING! I WAS MAKING AN IMPORTANT CALL ON VIBER AND AND THEN IT JUST WENT. THIS HAPPENS ABOUT EVERY 3 MINUTES OF USING THE INTERNET.
Summary: I own one of these phones and can confirm it's the worst phone that both friends & myself have used. First of all I will list all the faults. 1 It has a habit of corupting the sd micro cards ,so that you loose all pictures & music. 2 The screen lock doesn't work ,so it phones up random ppl from my pocket. 3 texting is a nightmare it keeps on spelling the wrong words or language.Also you'll need tiny fingers to text like stuart littles.
