You get what you pay for

  • Summary: This phone was alright at first, I was looking for a basic, inexpensive phone that I could access the internet with and use basic apps like Facebook and Wells Fargo. The issue with this phone is the internal storage, there is practically none. Even with an SD card I was constantly getting warning messages that my space was running out, then I couldn't update certain apps because there wasn't enough space to do so.

HATE phone! Comes w/unwanted apps I cannot uninstall.

tula2, CNET
6 July 2013
  • Summary: With that said, I love Boost Mobile's affordable plan(s). I have been a customer since 2010. The only thing that would make me leave Boost: not finding a phone that works well on Boost and is not programmed with apps I am forced to keep.
  • Pros: It still works after 2 years, and has had no significant tech problems.
  • Cons: This phone comes programmed w/very many apps that cannot be uninstalled or moved to a SD card. Therefore, there is hardly any memory to install apps that I want and forget about the updates., This phone has only caused extreme frustration.

  • Summary: I bought this for my girlfriend about a year ago. I finally bought her a better phone. She has had nothing but problems with this phone. Short battery life, dropped calls and horrible reception. I would not recommend this phone.

Great smart phone on a cheap budget

Marie, Amazon
30 November 2012
  • Summary: This is a great phone for someone on a budget, like me, who can't afford a more expensive unit. There is limited space on this phone and not all apps can be moved to the sd card (like facebook) without tampering with the "computer stuff." But overall you can't beat not paying $300 for a phone and only a monthly bill of $50!

Don't Let The Reviews Fool You

RateThisPDX, CNET
14 November 2012
  • Summary: I've only had the phone for about 3 months and purchased it brand new. The phones internal memory is the worst I've ever experienced. I have only downloaded one additional app to the phone and that's Facebook. I have to regularly delete all of my text messages, clear my cache to apps and delete call logs just to make more room on the phone. My apps won't update even after doing this because it says there isn't enough memory.
  • Pros: *Call quality is actually pretty good, *Fairly speedy when cruising the internet, *Better durability than expected
  • Cons: *Internal memory is very poor, *Poor camera quality, *Charing and battery issues after only 3 months

Very pleased!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
22 July 2012
  • Summary: I have been looking for a new phone for quite some time, because I was tired of being the only person I knew that didn't have a smartphone. I found a used Samsung Galaxy Prevail and decided to order it. It was in my mailbox 2 to 3 days after I ordered it, which surprised me, because I was expecting a much longer wait. I was very pleased with the speed of the shipping, as well as the quality of the product.
