Excerpt: The phone did a really great job when I had it. For my needs, this phone is very good. Unfortunately, I dropped it on a bare floor on its screen from a height of 3 feet. The glass was cracked, but it was still completely working. But it was unusable as the glass could easily scratch your hands and with a light touch it can touch the LCD display. It was not worth it to get it repaired as I will pay half its price. I beg every owner to get this phone a good case.
Excerpt: I got it few months ago at a great discount, and it's my first smartphone. Everything's good for a device of this price range, the only things that I dislike are no autofocus and flash on camera, and narrow screen viewing angle. The camera itself works very well outside in the daylight, and although it lacks flash, it has one of the better "night modes" I've seen. Build quality is excellent, a common thing for Samsung phones.
Excerpt: Decent smartphone. Touch screen responsive. Wifi fast. Gps with google map with installed text to speech working outstanding. Setup really easy. The keyboard is a little difficult to use -- For the price, features very good deal. The Samsung 5830 probably will be better, but I am happy with this phone's feature and especially price.
Excerpt: Actually, it might just be me being lucky, and you might not believe what I’m about to write, but this phone fell from the 2nd floor and also splashed into a swimming pool (on my wedding day!) and it still works perfectly…but don’t try this at home, I don’t think Samsung warranty will work against water dropping and downstairs falling!
Summary: Arrived promptly, can't fault the phone itself - it's a very nice little unit. Bought for my father who wanted something up-to-date compared to the (very) old motorola he's had for the last 10 years. Just a shame it clearly came from Europe as it has extra German instructions in the box and only a European pin charger (even though the box has a section cut for a UK-style plug!).
