Fast, long battery, gorgeous screen, 3g/4g not so good.
10 March 2012
Summary: I love the features it offers, I think Samsung did great. The only cons are there might not be many Samsung updates for the phone and Sprint's service isn't as good, as I would expect.
Pros: It has a really good processor and it's capable of handling roms and personification, great memory capacity, and the price is perfect !!! , I truly like this phone.
Cons: 3G/4G are not as good as expected, I am going to have to blame Sprint because if they had a better 3G or at least more 4G areas the phone would be so much better. I don't get service at my home(San Bruno) and also Samsung wont make so many updates.
Summary: I've had a number of Android phones and I do not feel that any level of outstanding hardware design can compensate for Google's unfinished O/S. There are too many bugs. It will drive you crazy wondering what next will happen. My phone routinely sends the same message 5 times to the same person. The battery is abysmal (I carry around a charger). I randomly can't edit emails while I am writing them (I can't get the cursor to the correct line). And on and on ....
Pros: The look and feel is beautiful; the thinness is so easy to hold; it's like having a computer with you.
Cons: Android. Every Android phone I've used is weirdly buggy in a large number of areas. I.e., they say it doesn't matter that you can't exit programs, but it does. It sucks the battery and slows down the phone to the point that it doesn't function.
Summary: Very nice phone. Light weight. Beatiful screen. Responsive. A littile too wide to hold in one hand for me. I wished ATT had reasonable priced data package for prepaid users. I was willing to sacrifice speed to use their $25 for 2GB plan but disappointed to find out that is only availabe for month to month service. So what is the point for a no-contract phone? I would have been better off to sign the 2yr contract and get the phone for less.
Summary: Phone is awesome. However, it does not have 4G support for T-Mobile prepaid, so it gets 2G speeds only on T-Mobile pre-paid and does not work at all on the cheap Canadian networks (Wind or Mobilicity). Wish I knew that before I bought.
Summary: The ATT model of this phone is good to, at times very good, depending on what part of the country your in. The phone its self has a very good processor and can really do mutitasking very well. The screen is very good,at 4.3 the screen is quite large with fantastic graphics. Data and internet seems to work very well. Phone calls are rated as good not great. This ver of the phone was not LTE, it is the HSPA+ in some parts of the country i would get up to 7MBS very fast .
The main thing that got me was the screen size and super bright graphics.

Summary: I had to choose between this phone and the Iphone 4s because My 3gs broke. I decided on this one because I love the screen size, thickness and way better resolution/graphics. Found all my favorite apps from my iphone on the android market. By far the best thing is that you do not have to go through itunes loading music, pictures etc. Only downfall I can find is the battery life is not as good (compared to my daughters iphone 4).
Excerpt: Love the screen, love the size, but I HATE the fact I have to make this SMART phone DUMB so I can have it last atleast the time I am at work. Ihave tried to kill as many apps as I can can, finally had to disable push email, so its pretty much a large feature phne.
Pros: nice looking phone, most things are great
Cons: BATTERY, the worst. Each day I try to tweak it and still use it as a smart phone just frustrates me to the point I feel like smashing it on the ground, Samsung I love your electronics, but you need to improve the battery life on your android phones, if you want a beautiful phone this is it, if you want a smart phone that will last all day with using the features that makes this a smart phone, look elsewhere
