Summary: I bought this from another vendor back in 2011 (it was $178 at the time -- the cheapest name brand smart phone....price has gone down significantly!). Then I bought another one for my mom in 2012 from Amazon. Unfortunately she lost it a year later. My phone still runs great 3 years later.
Excerpt: Just bought it last year and it is a remarkable phone! It could support the latest andriod 4.1 with many things scaled down. (find how yourselves) Battery life is so-so after kept listening to music and reading comics, but shockingly long when left it by itself(lasted about 4 days without offing...
Pros: great for gaming, sleek,sturdy build, good battery life, standard music player with 3.5mm jack, cheap, light, CM mod ready (google cyanogen mod for galay 5 if you do not understand my post)
Cons: irritating samsung apps that is never used, Armv6 cpu, small screen, is not upgraded to andriod 2.3

Summary: I bought this from Amazon two months back. I was looking for an unlocked quad band phone which is not very expensive and can be used during international travel and I found this phone in Amazon.
Summary: I bought this cellphone for my daugther and she is very happy, for the many apps it has. I am in a foreing country and we are in touch by mean skype, both speak under voip. And many amazing apps like games, music, etc become it a great cellphone.
