All I want is a basic phone, talk/ text and send photos.

Summary: I don't find it user friendly and I am not using it any more. I don't want all the features this phone has and with all the junk on it still would not send a text with a photo in it, it was a waste of money and I am not relisting it for sale because I don't want to upset the buyer.
Summary: I got this phone to replace a Galaxy Stratosphere and found it to be similar but much slower to respond to keystrokes. I really like a dedicated keyboard but, the operating system seems sluggish. Front and rear camera are ok but, doesn't have a flash which limits picture taking. Over all it's ok, would make a decent cheap first phone for a casual user.
Great phone, Great price, But the battery life is terrible.

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: Update again: I still like my appeal but I am carrying a second battery around with me, not good. The appeal spawns processes like rabbits and I have to shut them down in setup every time I turn the phone on to save my battery. I think there is definitely a flaw in the OS or in the phone. Not sure which, but I am tired of the extra battery.....just to be sure I have a charged cell phone. May have to go to another phone. I do like what it has to offer..
