Great product, two things you need to know before you buy

Summary: This product I great. It is my first phone and has held up wonderfully. There only two annoyances. First, it is nearly impossible to find a good case for the phone. Most cases pop open when you drop them, and off comes the backing in the battery. Considering how many times I've dropped it my screen hasn't cracked. The second thing to be aware of is, the power button is sticky and sometimes it gets stuck in the phone causing it to restart.
Summary: I bought this phone in August 2013. It was a little buggy at first (freezing up and restarting on it's own once in a while) then Samsung/VM had some updates that fixed that and I haven't had any issues after the first couple of weeks.I've been using it for 10 months now. It's running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. It's been a decent phone, great screen quality, good call quality, half way decent pictures, battery life is average.
Summary: Switched (upgraded ) so I thought , from optimus elite to this galaxy reverb, I used the reverb for 2 months and then switched back to optimus elite . I dont know if I got a lemon (Reverb) but I have nothing good at all to say about it. Horrible !!!
Excerpt: Oh well was good until they updated from ICS to Jelly Bean and I truly think it was the update that ruined this cell. Previously it was fine for me in midrange cells like the HTC ONE V but the Update made the cell MUCH SLOWER IN BENCHMARKS, USAGE AND NOW IT HAS RANDOM REBOOT ISSUES. I sent it back to Virgin and got a New Boxed one with JB already formatted on it and it was still no good with reboots and occasional freezes.
Pros: Large 2gig User Memory, Attractive Design, Good call quality, Brilliant Display, Easy Navigation, Super customizable, Long battery life, Decent Network considering the cost
Cons: Jelly bean made it almost unusable with random reboots up to 8 times a day. Some days its OK, WHY??, Ram is just 768meg but shows just 585m after hidden apps are accounted for, Virgin Mobile has the dumbest techs on the Planet and Samsung is not much better now, Why didn't I buy the extended warranty LOL!, I'm almost sure Jelly bean needs a a dual core CPU like the Victory and that cell has NO Issues with JB, Buy the LG F3 LS720
Summary: We'll a upgrade compared to most of all other virgin mobiles phones. Not much to say it works and depending on your location apps like YouTube should work. It's a 50/50 chance. Can play big games on it and great pictures. A lil low in volume when you call or get called. Not too buggy. Nice design.
Summary: I got this phone because of the on board space available. However, you cannot actively put apps on the SD card, the screen has a tendency to simply stop working and it seems to get really laggy at times. When the touch screen simply stops working, the only fix I have found it to disassemble the phone (pull the battery). If this didn't happen as frequently as it does, I would rate it higher.
It worked once... before the OS update then is went snail slow

Excerpt: Ok when i first bought his phone was great then there was a system update that broke it. Constent freezng where the screen becomes unresponsive, its very slow, So slow as it can take 15 seconds for the keyboard to come up for you to type anything. Oh and also random restarts wile your useing the phone or it will just power itself off with 50% battery.
Pros: works kinda
Cons: slow, camera take long time to use, freezes, random restarts and powering off
