Summary: I loved this phone to death but the charging port broke and it just dramatically broke my heart. I really adored this phone, please contact me please! My charging port broke way to easily. I was shocked and outrageous at the fact on how fragile this phone is. I still recommend this phone to everyone dispite it's this flaw.
It's a cell phone and it does everything well except the phone part.

Summary: Nice phone. Easy to operate. Great battery life. But the call quality is waaaaaay substandard. When I retrieve a voice message, it sounds like the caller is under water. During a phone conversation, I'm always asking, Could you please say that again." No, it's not my hearing. It's the phone. Ironic. It's a cell phone and it does everything well except the phone part.
Summary: I purchased this phone in February 2013, so it is less than a year and a half old. It freezes, I have to take the battery out to 'reboot" it, some text messages will not open and all of this is very frustrating!!!! I paid $259.00 plus tax when I bought the phone and I wished I had saved my money. I love the Straight Talk plans but this phone is not worth what it cost. I didn't expect it would start having issues 6 months into the use of it.
Summary: I wanted to love this phone, I really did. It was my long overdue departure from the flip phone & I was excited to enter the era of the smartphone. My excitement was short lived, since this phone turned out to be a real turd. After about 2 weeks of use it developed some sort of interference that you can hear when making calls. I was disappointed, but I could overlook this. Next I noticed that if you put this phone in your pocket it would shut itself off.
Summary: The TouchWiz UI is, as usual, a slow and convoluted mess. Stock Android, while not as smooth an experience as iOS, is light years ahead of TouchWiz. What Samsung does to Google's baby could arguably be called abuse. And because Samsung will not allow stock Android on its devices, users are stuck waiting for them to implement TouchWiz on new versions of Android. Unfortunately, this means that the S Duos is stuck now and possibly forever, on Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4.
Samsung GT-S7562 The worst ever phone from Samsung India

Excerpt: Samsung GT-S7562 The worst ever phone from Samsung India. Except its Camera quality everything is worst. Used this mobile for 5 months wherein 1 month at service center changes the motherboard twice and twice other problems like handing rebooting screen lock etc Don't go for this product and be aware of Samsung mobile not good as it was 2 years ago.Customer Service and Service Center Service from Samsung India is horrible. Biggest Liars.
Summary: This is my second Samsung Galaxy duo. The first one has been a great cell phone. This one I ordered has had some problems. Maybe that is due to the fact that it is a refurbished phone. However, the phone is good for a first time user.
