Great Phone. Good Buy.
23 September 2013
Summary: I ordered SGH I717 on Sept 3rd. Got it Sept 13th. I'm a T-Mobile customer and i was looking for a device that would work on T-Mobile (Re-farmed) 1900mhz 3G Network & LTE 1700/2100 mhz When i looked at the bands this device supports it was a match. So i purchased this device. Shipped with Android 4.0 i updated it to 4.1 through Samsung Kies on my laptop. I live in Columbia, SC and T-Mobile has been refarming the 1900mhz for 3G so unlocked AT&T devices can have 3G/HSPA.
Summary: Phone got here quickly, in good shape and was new. I purchased it from Top 10 cells and, as promised, it was carrier unlocked. I am a T-mobile user and had written down all the apn information expecting to have to set up data access, voice mail and so forth, but nope, as soon as I inserted the SIM it realized it was T-mobile and automatically set those functions up.
Summary: Pros: Note has great screen, really nice colors, Super Amoled really shows off the difference. Phone is great for those people who want something between the regular smartphone and a small tablet. Battery can last one day of moderate usage. Cons: Software that came pre-installed is awful. Note is lagging, constantly running out of memory, applications randomly closing or taking MINUTES to start up (yes, minutes). I would try some custom roms.
Summary: ...there was a phone that was wonderful. It had many features, functions, and fruits of labor. It is a big phone. So think twice about how you will carry it around with you. I have been poking about with this phone since I got it yesterday, and it has so many things to learn that I will take a long time before I figure out all of it. From what I have seen, there is a lot customization allowed along with a lot of pre-loaded apps.
Summary: This is a terrific cellphone, tablet, handset. I do tech work for a living and know the diff.. Everything is right on this device. Videos are awesome, sound level is great even through the speaker [especially if positioned just right], gorgeous display, WIFI is strong with no complaining [unlike so many], calls are crisp, storage is fine for nearly everyone, it seems tough. I hear of way less screen-glass fractures on this vs others.
Summary: Is a nice phone for the price. The one bad thing about it is that there are only two carriers that will service unlocked phones and the signal strength is not as good as you would get from the phones each of the carriers provide, no matter how much you are willing to pay.
Summary: I previously had the Samsung Proclaim on Straight Talk (Verizon towers). I wanted a larger screen and Straight Talk told me that I had to go with an AT&T compatible phone, so I chose the Note. Since this phone was less than half the cost of the S4, I chose it. So far I'm glad I did. One thing I don't understand is why people pay the ultra high monthly costs for Verizon or AT&T when they can get unlimited everything for $45 per month with Straight Talk with no contract.
