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!!!
Summary: This is, by far, the worst phone I've ever owned. I bought my phone about Thanksgiving time, so I've had it about nine months. It has been sent in for warranty repairs four times, so it has spent at least five of those nine months in the shop. As a result, I've been able to use it less than half the time that I've owned it. When it isn't freezing up or randomly shutting off, the screen flickers or it switches to vibrate on outgoing calls.
Cons: Poor quality, Did not meet expectations, freezes up, shuts off randomly, turns to vibrate on outgoing calls, screen flickers
Summary: Do yourself a favor and just buy a penny phone it will save you the headache. The phone is always freezing up no matter what I do. As stated before there is so much preinstalled there is no more room for you to even think about adding your own apps. Now I too can't charge my phone just goes back and forth charging and uncharging. Even when charging it is a total guess if the phone is really charging.
Summary: I bought this phone on the 4G LTE hype and was one of the first to have this phone in my area. I upgraded from a Mesmerize to this phone. I never had any issues with my old phone, it was capable of switching between apps and would very rarely freeze, the Aviator however can barely open an app, if you get a phone call or text message while using an app the phone will freeze and you will miss your call.
