Excerpt: I upgraded to this phone from my old school flip phone. it was a good deal and ive had it for over a year. I bought it to see if i really needed to upgrade to the more expensive data plans. it turns out i do...... I love having all the apps at my disposal!......if only this phone was worth more than i paid for it (0$) after a year of this thing I upgraded to the S5. and wholly crap the difference. if i ever looked at that phone again it would probably give me a headache.
Pros: small, light weight, super durable, cheap as dirt (i think it was free w/ rebate), ringer is super loud
Excerpt: I've had this phone for about half a year and it's pretty terrible. The phone is constantly crashing and freezing. The screen sometimes will refuse to turn on as well. I haven't used it much for calling so I really can't tell how good the quality of that is.
Summary: Sir/Madam I ordered a new unlocked phone and when received I found that it needs a code to unlock, I tried some numbers 000 also 0000 and now there are two tries remaining, I do not want to try another number, but I would like to have the code to unlock, can u please send me the code, I would greatly appreciate it, thanks.
Summary: The Battery on this phone is awful!!! After fully charging, being put on airplane mode and being placed on the dimmest setting, this phone is already at 55% battery & it was put in my purse untouched, for about 3 hours. I will be replacing this phone ASAP!!! This is the second Samsung smartphone I've had with a horrible battery. I will NOT be replacing it with another Samsung!!!!!
Summary: The only thing this phone has on Blackberry is the apps and the price. While this phone is an entry level phone it is missing all the little things. I find it annoying that in order to find out if you have missed a text or a phone call that you have to pick up the phone to check. Why don't they have a flashing light like blackberry's to let you know. When texting I ended up turning off the predictive type as it is terrible as it was more of a hassle to use.
Summary: Just had phone for 2 weeks and battery will not last a full day with minimal use,camera is froze and cannot be used.I'm ok with it because i'm not a person that uses it other than a few calls and texts,but for someone that is really into the smartphone for heavy use would be disappointed.
