Summary: It froze all the time. Turn off by itself. Slow phone dialer. Not ready for this hectic life, it can't handle the pressure.Second one I had, the first one, the speaker broke on the first week. Get something faster instead!
nice screen but everything else is sub par. too bad it looks good but does not perform

Summary: Samsung did a very poor job with this phone. slow, bloated os. crashes. reboots for no reason. drops calls. looks cool but fails way to often. Be smart buy: get a Nokia a windows phone and forget Samsung and goog/droid.
Summary: I bought this phone because I had it once and I broke it. I was so happy with this model I wanted to buy the exact same one. This one I bought on ebay was a bad copy of my previous! The battery was low half an hour after a full recharge. I had to send it back and ask for a refund.
Summary: Returned to vendor. This phone is the original Samsung Galaxy, and not what expected. I want the S-4 not the S (4g). They could have made this clear in description of item. Phone returned and received by Vendor last Wednesday. Haven'y heard anything back.
Excerpt: 1.) The first time the phone hit the ground i had a crack that branched out across my screen. 2.) A memory card is a must, because the internal memory gets full quickly. 3.) It throws an error message every few minutes(regardless of what im doing on the phone,including talking)that reads "googe play services are not resonding," and the only options is the "force close" button.
Excerpt: This phone is terrible. Worked well for about 6 months then downhill from there. I now have to factory reset the phone at least once a month to get it to work and if I put any apps on the phone it won't work at all. Would definitely not recommend.
The Honest Truth About Samsung Fascinate Cell Phone
1 August 2013
Excerpt: I was incredibly excited when I purchased the Samsung Fascinate. I have been looking for a phone to rival the iphone when Verizon did not yet offer the iphone. Upon initial inspection I liked the screen size which is over 4 inches and the screen was very appealing to the eye. Samsung has a great reputation for quality screens. Unfortunately I was very disappointed with the original betery, so I quickly purchased the extended battry and back cover.
Excerpt: I was excited about purchasing this phone. However, I have had nothing but problems with it. My first problem was syncing with my employer's server and receiving my work email. I keep getting security certificate errors. My employer can not figure out the problem because one of my coworkers has the same phone and has no problem getting his email. My phone will also stop retrieving my personal email. I have not been able to figure it out.
Samsung Galaxy S Smartphone is not the best smartphone.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy S Smartphone is not the best smartphone I have ever owned. The charging cord is very tricky to get to work. If you don't have it just right it will not charge, you have to wiggle it till it starts to charge and then not move it. Also it is not very good for signal strength. I can have service and then move alittle and then I loose service. I also can have 3 or 4 bars and then dial and it goes to 1 bar and I cannot make the call.
