Summary: Just what I wanted. This model may not have all the features of the most current Android phones, yet it is a solid smart phone and a good value for the money. I didn't mind buying a new phone (which is an older model) to save some money. I've not as yet been able to verify that it is unlocked. When I first turned the phone on it automatically updated the Android OS to 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. Good reception in weak signal areas. Battery life is not as good as I was hoping.
Excerpt: Over the past two years of owning a samsung galaxy s2, i have experienced ALOT of internal damages in the phone especially the battery as well as the charging port. The build quality of samsung is really good, no damages, the real damage is in the internal part of the phone. The battery dies out too quick, camera quality not so great, most applications just shut down randomly or freeze especially apps like snapchat.
Summary: I don't use this as a cell phone, I bought it to use as my camera/camcorder and mp3 player primarily. I love all the features that I have taken advantage of so far. The screen size is excellent, that leads me to another reason I bought it. Come NCAA tournament time I will be able to watch 3 games at once, and whenever I am out and there is wifi available I catch up on the "real news" on my watch ESPN app.
