Samsung Fascinate was good, at first
29 August 2013
Excerpt: I loved this phone at first. It was my very first smartphone and I loved how it could do so much. A month after I first got it, I started having problems with it. I still have this phone since I paid so much for it, but if I had the choice again, I would have done my research a little more before picking this phone out.
Phone is OK but I wish I would have gone with Droid or iPhone
2 August 2013
Excerpt: I was so excited to get a smartphone, but have been kind of disappointed in this one. It has many features that I love, but some things that I don't like. I have had a really hard time getting used to texting without the dial pad option. I love to text and now it is a joke with my family that it takes me so long to write texts now. I wish it had the option of using the dial pad to text, but so far I haven't found a way. I love all the apps it has available for free.
Excerpt: When I got this phone I just wanted a cheap smart phone and it worked out okay. I found out that the headphone jack didn't work and had to return it. I got a refurbished phone and the head phone jack still doesnt work and the phone freezes all the time. As soon as my upgrade is ready, I am getting rid of this phone! The ticker bar at the bottom of the phone seemed like a good idea when I got it, but it is really just wasted screen space.
Needs a lot of improvement to fully qualify as a 'smartphone'

Excerpt: I think Samsung Galaxy S is a good phone for voice and texting usage, but needs a lot of improvement to fully utilize the 'smartphone' capability. Battery was already dying after just over a year of usage Screen freezes randomly when using apps. Need to remove battery as there's no way to get it responding again. Call quality is good. I think this phone is good for the normal voice call and texting usage.
Excerpt: When this phone is working properly, I love it. The problem is that I've had a lot of issues with it. I bought my first one about 6 months ago. In that time, it's been replaced under warranty 4 times. It seems like something is always going wrong with it. Some of the problems I've experience- the phone taking screen shots on its own, not being able to place or receive calls, the home buttons locking up, the screen locking, etc.
Excerpt: I have had my facinate for over 1.5 years now. It is getting a bit old, but I still like it! It functions kind of like an iphone and the screen is bigger than the iphone, which I like. The phone gets good reception. There are a few things I would change: 1. Being able to set specific ringtones for text messages from certain people 2. Extend the battery life. After about 8 months, the battery started to loose power quickly. I am constantly recharging it. 3.
Excerpt: If you're an Android lover, you'll probably adore this phone. If you have no Apple/Android bias, you two will be very happy with each other. But this phone was blah to me. It made my calls, it sent my texts and got a few apps. Given that it didn't crash and restart randomly. And it takes what seems like years to 'reboot.' I had flashbacks of Windows '98 when this thing was starting up.
I think it is an 'ok' phone, wouldn't buy it again though.

Excerpt: I have had this phone for abour a year and a half now and I guess overall it is satisfactory. But I can't tell you how many times it freezes up on me and I have to go and take the battery out to get it to start up and over again. It gets very annoying and I wouldn't think that this new it would be doing that.
Excerpt: When we switched carriers, I had to give up my much-loved iPhone. I wouldn't have been able to use any other phone than this one. It has a wonderful camera and video camera. The screen is beautiful and easy to read, but sometimes too sensitive. I don't like not being able to remove the pre-loaded applications. There are games on there that I don't use or care about, and they are just taking up space.
Excerpt: I have had the Samsung Fascinate for a few months now and am pretty happy with it. There are many pros but the few cons it has are heavy ones. This is a beautiful phone with one of the largest screens on the market. It is an LED screen which makes it easier to see in the daylight when you are outside. It's picture is crystal clear. This phone also takes excellent quality pictures for a cell phone camera.
