Summary: This is a horrible product. It freezes when you try to answer a phone call, it turns off by itself, not very much memory, not really worth to spend your money!. Save your money and buy something that isn't worthless and that actually works!
Excerpt: What a shame that phones this bad still exist in the age of Android 4.0. Upgraded to this after my Optimus One became essentially unusable, and was dissapointed with what I got. Low resolution screen, bad camera, no front camera, slow processor, barely any RAM (even less than the outdated Optimus One), and measly 1300 mAh battery. Even ICS couldn't save this thing. Slow and cheap, with a pathetic battery.
Pros: ICS, Decent built in storage for such a cheap phone
Cons: Ridiculously bad battery life, Not enough RAM to run anything, Slow processor, Slow UI, Bad camera
Summary: Nice phone but the lack of a manual of any kind makes a frustrating experience to start using it immediately. Some of the functions are non-intuitive. Once one goes over the initial difficulties, it's a good phone.
Summary: This product has repeatively stopped working (forcing me to remove the battery and restart the phone) Also the phone should have a camera on the front and back of the phone. I wish to inform those thinking of buying this product not do so.
Summary: Essentially the phone is not of a high quality like the fusion I presently have but the price is right. Also, it does not have the hot-spot feature I was looking for. I should have checked that before I unlocked the phone. In any case I will keep it as second phone and for travelling since I bought it for this particular reason. Another thing, the phone screen is quite cheap and it doesn't compare with really good phones.
Summary: I looks nice, a great size. Battery is average, gets me through the day. But freezes if I turn off the wifi and turn it on again, lags constantly or completely freezes and requires a restart. No flash or screen light up, can not block numbers.
Summary: This seemed like a steal. It was great value as a prepaid...or so it seemed. Compact, speedy, new OS etc. Did everything I needed it to do. Except maintain a charge. It would run down the battery in half a day and no changing of the settings could fix it. Think I got a lemon, sadly.
Good overall, poor component quality, requires setting "adjustments" to have decent battery life.

Summary: Bought 2 on sale last summer. One had a defective component which caused rapid battery use and overheating. Samsung warranty repaired at no cost within 3 weeks. Both phones had to have settings "adjusted" in order to have acceptable battery life. Adjusting settings is not an easy procedure for non technical users. Otherwise phone is good overall. Good size, fits in hand and pockets, takes standard google and other android apps.
