Great If U Root It & Remove All The Bloatware.

Summary: I would have given this model 2-3 stars originally because it comes loaded with a ton of useless bloatware that takes most of the memory, It even had a copy of the movie Inception on it taking up space! It used to have the Wi-Fi or GPS freeze every couple of days and I would have to turn it off then back on to reset it, then it got to the point that I couldn't even install updates because there wasn't enough memory.
Summary: I had the same phone and we ordered this one for my husband. He wanted a smartphone, though he hardly uses most of the features, so we didn't feel the need to buy a more updated model for $500. This one is great. The touchscreen is accurate and responsive. The camera is more than decent. We both use ours frequently for sending photos to friends/family, taking pictures of PowerPoint slides in class, etc. The phone is user-friendly and I'd definitely recommend it.
Excerpt: I received this phone for Christmas and have yet to have a single issue with it. My previous phones were all "dumb phones" and I was always hesitant to move to a new smart phone worrying that the touch keys would be too small, it would lag, etc. This phone has been a pleasure. Battery lasts about 24 hours but other than that I am happy with it. Very good screen and easy to use. I'm a fan of Samsung phones.
Excerpt: It is a good phone but still has some quirks to it that they need to work out. Battery life does not last as long as you would expect specially with the apps Love the big screen display it has It has a very good call quality It very easy to learn to use it specially if you have never used a smartphone before I have dropped my phone numerous times and it is still in great shape Love the slim slender design
