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.
Summary: Rarely do i regret what i purchase. I did like the phone, but had to keep it on Bluetooth most times because the speaker wasn't good at all from the first day. Changing the volume didn't work. Using the Bluetooth turned out to be my downfall. I got in a habit of leaving it somewhere close charging while on the Bluetooth & it was stolen from my car. It never failed on me, however, and all the apps worked fine.
The battery life isn't fantastic and will go down quickly if you use it ...

Summary: It's an OK phone. I've had it for 5 months now with no major problems, but it's not the fastest, the sound has glitches, and it sometimes freezes up so you have to take the battery out (though this only happened maybe 5 times since I got it). The battery life isn't fantastic and will go down quickly if you use it heavily.
Not very powerful but the absolute most durable screen EVER

Excerpt: I picked the galaxy ring up about year ago becouse my previous much better phone (the htc dna) fell and broke and at the time I couldnt afford anything better and needed something right away so i picked it up and switched to virgin mobile. Vigin mobile by the way gets horrible reception in the area i live but that's another story. anyway over time i noticed that the screen on the galaxy ring is near impossible to break.
Pros: unsmashable plastic screen, works fine enough for calls and texts
Cons: short battery life, low resolution, slow processor
Summary: It was okay for a while but lately my phone is doing some weird stuff. Not only does it kick me out of apps that aren't running but the background sometimes goes black and i have to restart my phone.
