"Active" features on the S-5 Active model are not ready
13 June 2014
Summary: Got new Active phone for use with outdoor activities such as hiking, skiing and fishing. The meters for barometric pressure, altitude and compass are way off. Still waiting for the NEO2 watch accessory to arrive to see if things improve, but suspect not. The chassis of the phone is very hefty and seemingly built for the outdoors, like they say. All other typical phone features are very nice, intuitive, fast. Camera is very nice also.
Summary: I bought these phones (2 ea.) as gifts for some friends in Kenya. I did not operationally check the phones until I got to Kenya, which was a mistake. It turnrd out that one of the phone would not recognize micro memory card so it usefulness was extremely limitied.
Summary: a moderate smartphone especially for new people in the smartphone world.Easy to operate. The problem however is that it consumes data unnecessarily even if you are not using the internet. And secondly the issue that you cannot sign out of your gmail account and if you do all your downloaded applications are erased
Summary: "wish it had a PIN lock feature opposed to the gesture lock because screen not very responsive and locks u out after several attempts.... bought another back up battery because all the amazing android apps drain your phone.... i always buy samsung....always have....always will.....a brand u can trust.... my last phone was a tocco lite......

Excerpt: "The samsung Galaxy Europa is a very cheap phone and the price is just right for what you get ,however if your looking for a fast energetic phone this is not for you it crashes on a regular basis ,the keypad crashes and freezes the phone it will press random keys and is very annoying ,But if you are looking for a cheap phone which you want for internet use and social websites it is good as there is wifi on the phone the internet loads fast and updates ...
Great phone many features but many problems at first

Summary: I purchased this phone on o2 the main problems with the phone was that i was receiving repeat text messages all the time. If anyone experiences this problem get your phone shop to upgrade your android software to 2.2 because for some reason the samsung kies wouldnt let me upgrade. The software was on 2.1 previously when i purchased it. There can sometimes be a delay when typing a message, with a slow response displaying the characters which you press.
