Great phone, Great price, But the battery life is terrible.
2 February 2014
Summary: I bought this phone because I wanted something up to date and affordable. I love that I can use this phone with ease, There are many apps to choose from, I can access the internet almost anywhere. It helps me stay on top of things whether it is checking my email on the go or keeping up with a social site. I have had two of these phones. Here is the biggest issue I have had with this phone.. The battery life is very short.
Summary: I was disappointed in the performance and quality of this phone. My first smart phone purchase, I would not buy this particular smart phone again. I have been a Samsung customer for many years, have purchased several cell phones and a flat screen T.V. made by Samsung in the past. The battery will not ordinarily hold a charge even when the phone is turned off.
Summary: Phone has lots of applications that you can't uninstall, battery performance is poor, I installed a battery saver and a task killer, to kill all the apps that are pre-installled that I have no use for, and they appear to increase battery performance so far. Love the keyboard though. Bottom line, phone could use some improvement, but OK for the price.
Summary: I bought this phone to use temporarily because I accidentally drowned my old phone. It's very slow because of all of the Samsung and AT&T bloatware, it has a very small amount of ram so heavy applications will frequently crash if there are any other apps running in the background. Also the physical keyboard keys are very hard to push and it makes typing very very slow.
Summary: this phone has let me down, i own my own service company and my phone is essential in my success.with in three week my screen went black and had to be sent away for six weeks and i lost all my contacts. now three months later its broke again. i bought a new battery yesterday because its stopped charging, its still wont charge but at least saved my contacts. now its says its charging all the time. but wont charge.
Summary: This phone is very compact and portable, the slide out keyboard makes texting and websurfing easy. However the screen will lock up sometimes and I have to hit the "home" key multiple times to unfreeze it, sometimes losing information in the process. It's also too easy to accidentally enter speaker mode or mute mode on the phone and the battery life is very short. However for a basic cell phone it's fine.
