One of the better phones I've owned!

Summary: I wanted a nice phone, but I don't want to spend a whole lot since I tend to break phones quite often. This does not have all the features as that actual galaxy, but it's close enough. Not to mention, this phone seems pretty indestructible. I've dropped it down the stairs several times at work, landing on hard concrete. it's been sprayed with water, oil, dropped in snow. And it still works.
Summary: This is the best replacement phone I have purchased. I love all of the features this phone has and the color is great. It is a little smaller than my previous phone but I still love it. The battery lasts a good while and my other phone was always going dead. I would definitely recommend this phone to anyone. I believe Samsung makes good quality products.
Summary: This is literally the worst phone I've ever had in my life. I wouldn't buy this piece of garbage again for $5 with the multitude of problems it comes with. It basically started breaking itself down after a few months of me having it and only got progressively worse until it was virtually unusable. Samsung shouldn't have released this model.
Excerpt: I have had this phone for only a couple of months and its horrible. Its slow and the battery is terrible .. it shuts off randomly and always is freezing.. i have taken good care of the phone but I dont like it one bit.
I'm now on my third one as the first had terrible call quality

Summary: This one was purchased for my daughter, but I have the same phone that I bought at Radio Shack in December 2013. I'm now on my third one as the first had terrible call quality. The second one lasted until October. It has always had an issue of randomly rebooting itself, freeze up, and sometimes was difficult to get it to turn on. Finally had a day where it just wouldn't turn on no matter what I did, even after swapping out the battery with my daughter's.
Excerpt: After coming off the leading competitor's product, boy was I surprised by the Galaxy. Surprised by what a poor quality product it is. Honestly, but for the fact that I need a cell phone, and can't legally unlock my brandX phone (at least not yet), I'd like nothing more than to take a hammer to my Galaxy. My 5 year old prior phone is a better product than this poor excuse for a smart phone. It crashes repeatedly, every day.
