Great bang for your buck but not for children under 13.

Summary: I bought this phone for my teenage daughter as a Christmas gift. It is only her second phone and her first with a touchscreen. As a father on a budget, I have opted to use gophones for both of my daughters and really couldn't afford to buy either of them the phone they really wanted. I figured this looked like a decent compromise. The phone has been easy for her to use and she says that she loves it. Her only real complaint is the battery life.
Summary: Short of it: If you want a big screen and the use of 4G LTE on AT&T's network this is a good buy. If you read a lot on your device or want a pure Android experience look elsewhere. I got this phone because I killed my HTC First which I actually liked (and can be found for about the same price.) I was in a hurry to pick up a roughly equivalent replacement and got this after some research. It is a respectable handset if you can get over the Samsung-ness... which I can't.
Summary: It's a great first phone for a kid. The keyboard is not that useful in my opinion as it is too small and does not give you an added benefit to use online keyboard. otherwise, it is a great phone. A bit thick and the screen a little bit small but that should not take any points away from the phone. Quality of pics is not great and it takes too long to load.
Summary: Bought this for my dad as a christmas gift. Tested it out and installed apps before giving it to him. Its a user friendly phone for beginners who are new on the touch screens/smartphones. It's fast and performs better than the Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830i I bought for myself a year ago.
Summary: I used to have an iPhone 5 on Verizon. I had just finally finished my 2 year contract in November and decided to go a cheaper route (mostly because I would be paying the bill from now on). So after checking out a few of the cheaper cell phone plans, I came across Aio (which I found out is AT&T's new prepaid alternative). They offer unlimited talk/text and 2 GB of what they refer to as "high speed data", which is 4G LTE.
Summary: When I first got the phone I had a problem where it shut off and would not come back on and it was fully charged but eventually days later it did come back on and since then it will still shut off by it self occasionally, but I can still turn it back on. Other than that I like the phone, love the ease of the Qwerty Keyboard for texting, it also takes good pics too. Sometimes I do have bad reception of phone calls, even when I have full service.
Summary: Purchased this item a week ago. So far so good. Recently switched to this phone from Boost Mobile/Sprint. It has a huge processor, pretty decent camera, 8GB internal memory storage, and a 800x480 screen resolution. I've heard complaints that the screen is not high resolution, but it looks pretty crisp and clear to me. The phone is very similar in terms of specs and appearance to the Galaxy S III.
Summary: Phone is great, however runs a bit slow at times...takes a long time to charge and loses battery quicker than other phones i've had in the past...alot quicker...overall, good phone, very satisfied.
