Good 2011 Phone But No 4G LTE

Summary: Back in 2011, this would have been a good entry level phone for Boost. However, Boost is now converting its network from being America's slowest 3G network into a new high speed 4G LTE network. Oddly, Boost sells new 2013 4G LTE phones at prices similar to old 2011 3G phones. As of October 2013, there is simply no reason for a Boost customer to buy a phone that lacks 4G LTE. Remember to check the coverage in your neighborhood on the coverage map on the Boost website.
Summary: I purchased the Samsung Prevail 2 mid August 2013. Expected a "less expensive" alternative to high end. I was moving from a Net10 ZTE Merit. I suppose most anything is a move up from there. The Prevail 2 works for me - carries lots of tunes (with an SD card,) room to add the basic apps I want (Radio tuner, facebook, etc.) I don't do games or much texting, etc. Prevail 2 had what I wanted. Perfect set up for a reasonable price. Got it with Boost Mobile so no contract.
Summary: I bought this cell phone for my grandaughter and she loves it! I love the price. She loves the fact that it was easy to set up, it has two cameras (front and back), loves the color, the clear screen, and most of all---SHE LOVES EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!
Summary: I bought this phone for 180 dollars from my local boost store and wanted to write a review to save other people from buying this phone. I have owned it for about 2 weeks and at the end of the month I will be throwing it in the trash and buying a different phone. I will never again buy a samsung phone after my experience with this phone.
Summary: I purchased this on the chance that it would be great (there were hardly any reviews online when I ordered it). My reference for this phone is my Galaxy S3. It's definitely smaller, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It fits in the pocket much easier. It's probably 1.5 times thicker than the S3. The screen seems nice and crisp, as you would expect from a Samsung phone. The screen is definitely A LOT smaller when surfing the web and such.
Summary: I didn't want to go for a BIG Samsung phone, as I have access to a laptop a lot of the time. The Galaxy Prevail II is a great smaller phone with most of the bells and whistles of the bigger Galaxy phones. Tons of room for apps; great performance; easy to use. Battery life seems excellent. This "entry-level" smartphone of 2013 seems superior to top-end units from just a few years ago. A great choice for users who don't want a bigger phone with them.
