Summary: I bought this phone because my other Droid phone would not work (that was my second phone). The phone was working well until a couple of weeks ago. Now when I make a call, the person on the other line has to hang up because my screen goes blank and won't turn on after a call. It is alright when you reach a person, but if you reach voice mail you have to turn the phone completely off to hang up. I will never buy a Droid phone again. I have had three in the last 18 months.
Summary: This phone was exciting at first as it was first smartphone, but that excitement soon wore off. This phone was has been a constant frustration. It typically freezes at least 2 times a day where I have to restart it. It will also do mini restarts where it suddenly closes all apps, loses connections and then reconnects at the home menu, this happens at least once a day. That's just part of it. Even things that should be simple are feats sometimes- texting, for example.
Pros: Built-in speakers, Durable, Realistic color
Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, unreliable, poor battery life, cannot be used abroad
Summary: This phone has good points and bad. I bought this phone for the price and features. The battery is awful! If I am lucky, it lasts an hour. I like the features it has but have not used much of them. This is my first smart phone, so have needed help from my teenagers to get me started and still ask them about how to do this or that. It freezes up at times while I am playing the one game that was downloaded and need to restart phone. It has shut down a few times.
It's an OK phone but nothing compared to whats out there today

Excerpt: I've had this phone since June 2012. I feel that the overall quality is kind of cheap as many other smartphones are built with stronger plastics, even metal and kevlar these days. This phone's battery life doesn't hold up, even with phones that were built around the same time, the battery would drain in less than 10 hours, even with light usage.
Summary: Biggest waste of money ever!! This phone has been nothing but a nightmare since the day I got it. I've had it now for 1 1/2 yrs and I'm just biding my time till I can get a new phone. I've done the factory resets and downloaded the upgrade but nothing has helped. Freezes up and shuts itself off constantly. Can't access any apps because it zaps the battery instantly.
Pros: Built-in speakers, Realistic color
Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, freezes up and shuts off constantly
Samsung's worst device ever created: HEED THIS WARNING!

Excerpt: This phone is not a phone, this phone can barely be considered to be a paperweight as it's so fragile I could sneeze and cause it to freeze! At times the phone lags so much that when imputing text into a text message the phone won't even register what I am typing until I close the app from the task manager, MULTIPLE TIMES!!!
Pros: Nothing. Really Nothing., How about nothing with a side of disapointment, Really Nothing
Cons: everything that has to do with the term "phone"
Summary: Phone works like it should but has some quirks. At times your voice will get strange when talking to others and the phone will just shut off by itself. The battery life is not good at all and you should always carry a charger with you.
Summary: I'd rather give it like a 2 and a half. Because you get what ya pay for, very nice, snappy out the box, but like everyone else says, battery is atrociously short on terms of life. I fully charge it and on standby, wifi off, GPS off, mobile data off, it'd last about 15-18 hours I'd say. But as soon as you turn on that beautiful screen and use it, say bye bye. I have a special speed charger and being on Skype drains the battery faster than it can sharge lol.
