Summary: I had to return this phone because it would not hold a charge. After a few hours on standby the battery would be completely drained. I tried a new battery with the same result. Also the screen goes blank so fast I often did not have time to complete reading text or searching through apps.
Summary: Beware..starts off good..then about 3 weeks into it...screen starts getting stuck..slow..will be typing a text message and it kicks me out to menu screen..calls wont go thru..too many negatives to list..
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Appeal SGH I827 is a ATT GO PHONE I contacted ATT and they informed me that this phone cannot be unlocked contrary to seller's claim. I was planning on using it with my SIMPLE wireless plan but was not able to. I also was unable to use it overseas.
Summary: It was a dissater that I bought this phone from ebay and from this seller. This phone has its own mind. The battery does not lsst beyond a few hours even when I have not used the phone at all. The phone will will always disconnect within a minute or so when I am talking to someone. It decides to activates applications without my knowledge thus drain the battery. I am extremely uphappy with this purchase and the phone.
Summary: If a phone won't hold a charge it doesn't matter how many great features it has, it won't work! Being tethered to a charging cord is not acceptable. At first it would hold a charge for 4 hrs of standby time before it started shutting down to conserve battery. On the most battery conserving settings and after doing 4 deep cycles of the battery, it will now hold a charge for 11 hrs before being below 20% battery.
Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, defective batteries common
Summary: I bought mine 2 months ago from a major electronics store chain. It won't turn on anymore. They couldn't tell if it was the charger or the battery. My only 2 options are buying a new battery (shouldn't they last longer than 2 months?) or send it back to Samsung and WAIT to see what they'll do! TOTAL JUNK!!
