Excerpt: Main plus side is the screen size, but this is where the problems start since bigger screen equals more drain on the battery so you can literally see the battery power going down before your eyes if you are a frequent user of this beast. The build quality in relation to its price is poor. I had mine for about 13 months and the power button got stuck, plus all sort of other niggling problems.
Summary: I think they built this to work for 1.5 years, I didn't expect these: Restart automatically; With WiFi, it won't last like 4 hours; Freeze a lot recently; Won't charge sometimes recently; I will never buy anything from Samsung.
Excerpt: People thought I was crazy. Now its 2013 and everyone wants a phablet. This was and still the original champ. Loved everything about it. Granted I got tired of TouchWiz but this phone was still the best at everyhting. Phone calls are clear, screen quality is superb, touch screen is responsive and the camera is still one of my favorites. The build is great overall and after 3 years of use the plastic materials are still in great shape.
Excerpt: Been using this phone less then 2 years and I can't wait to change it when the contract is up, this phone isn't tough enough like iphone, the interface still sucks, I still get lost when trying to find a certain pictures, the battery is really bad, even on idle, imagine with 70 percent batt before going to bed, it might be dead by morning, even without touching it. It auto run apps on idle, I tried using Juice Defender, but it doesn't help much now.
Summary: I just want to add that this phone is unlocked and works on T-Mobile prepaid plan. I'm getting 4G LTE, on NJ. Also, To update to Jelly Bean 4.1.2, just install Samsung Kies, it's a free app from Samsung. Connect the phone, and after connecting to it, it will request to update. I personally recommend that after an update you do a factory reset to delete anything left from the previous 2.3 android system.

Summary: I ordered this phone through Tablet Distributors. I got the phone on October 7 2013. Upon opening the phone, I noticed that the phone came without the stylus. how upsetting. the phone was sealed, but upon opening the device, the phone looked dirty and tampered with. I contacted Amazon and the told me that they will refund part of my money because the phone did not come with a stylus pen.
