Summary: I bought the phone through Amazon and the first issue is that it came with a European charger. I spoke with the seller and was promptly sent an american charger at no cost. Recently I started to really use the phone and as luck would have it, the phone is giving trouble. The screen is constantly rebooting itself over and over again. Buy at your own risk.
Summary: LOVED THE PHONE, just was not able to activate it, even after I called StraightTalk first before purchasing it to make sure it could be used in my area! So be careful purchasing Unlocked phones! Also, some phones on Wal Mart site states some phones can't be used in your area, but on Straight Talk site it shows different! VERY CONFUSING INFORMATION!
made for Australia market, balky, crashed and dies
14 March 2014
Summary: bought it to use in France with local SIM card; came with Australia market presets and a lot of unwanted news feeds that I could never get rid of; keyboard is small even for my avg size hands and typing was laborious with corrections and autocorrect frustrating; used only a handful of google play-sourced apps for metro service, social media and mapping, it became very slow and was balky, even with moving most apps to micro-SD.
Summary: This phone does almost everything I need. The main thing missing that I'd like to have is a front camera, but for the price it's fine. I've only had it for a couple of months, but so far it has performed perfectly.
Summary: I was a little surprised at the size and it seems to not function as well as my previous Samsung phones- not sure if it is just this model. It is a nice size and not as large and clunky and it has less buttons which can be a positive for someone who likes simplicity.
