Excerpt: This phone isn't bad. It's the first smart phone after having a flip phone for years. Most things work fine for what it is but a few things have really bothered me. There is only 1GB of internal storage and with the stock ROM, you can't move the apps to the SD card so once the storage is full, you're done, no more apps. The other big down side is the swipe keyboard. It's MUCH worse than other Samsung Galaxy products, constantly putting the wrong words in.
Pros: Small, Nice design, Clear vibrant screen
Cons: TINY Storage - You WILL run out of space on internal storage
Summary: This phone work just ok in my opinion. I have a few issues that are ticking me off though. Without opening certain apps or even using the phone, it opens apps at random and keeps running and causes the battery to die too quickly. I have tried to remove and uninstall the apps, but the phone won't let me. It's usually apps that were already loaded on the phone like the Google Play Music, the Google Play Store and one I downloaded called Our Groceries.
Summary: Features on this phone are good and it's durable. The main reason I didn't give a better rating is the battery life sucks. A have a few of these for my company and my employees complain about short battery life even with wifi, GPS and Bluetooth off. Not too bad of a phone, but not nearly as good as an S2.
Summary: The phone is well constructed and relatively fast. It does freeze up occasionally, though, and the battery only lasts about a day. I'm quite happy with it though, and I'd say if you can get it for less than $125 as of August 2013, it's a good deal.
Summary: I think it's an ok phone. The only thing that I didn't like was that the battery was no good. Every time I would try to charge it the battery would drain even more so it was doing the opposite of charging. But you get what you pay for so I had to purchase an additional battery for it. It has great capabilities, as advertised. I still would recommend it to my friends and family-only that they should purchase this phone brand new instead of refurbished like I did.
Summary: Unfortunately, I was talked into buying this phone, by a friend, when I went to purchase the Galaxy S II... guess I should have stuck with my original plan. This phone is very aesthetically pleasing but, I started having issues with it after only a month. I had many issues with calls not coming through, text messages not being sent or received, tons of call drops, general glitchey-ness and wifi pretty much not ever working.
Pros: Bright display, Durable, Lightweight
Cons: Did not meet expectations, bad camera, too many pre-installed apps, overall poor function
