Summary: This phone replaced my now defunct S II that I bought a few years back. Even though I've had every generation of Samsung Galaxy since then, I've always liked the S II. Probably because of it's simplicity; newer generations of phones came without some of the pre-installed apps I liked on the S II, and some of the features were actually easier to use on the old S II than it's newer siblings. One big difference is weight. The S II feels puny compared to the S4 and S5.

Summary: I am so tired of hearing my wife complain about this phone. We have owned this phone for about four months and the touchscreen works very poorly, and the phone just seems to lose information at random.
Summary: A near total disaster because it's overloaded with annoying features like taking its temperature! Save power like this, that ...it nags you all the time and misplaces e-mails, SMS' and is so light and dinky you wont believe it. The back door is dingy and while it looks good enough, skip this messy Samsung phone. It's a battery killer too.
Do not recommend unless you want to be a slave to your charger.

Excerpt: Battery Life is Terrible: I purchased this phone to upgrade from my old LG and at first it worked pretty well but soon the battery began draining quickly. I use a few apps that run in the background which quickly run the battery life down in this phone. So I bought a backup battery that I try to keep charged when the one in the phone dies. Then the batteries would constantly overheat and then restart over, and over, and over.
Pros: Good quality pics, Call quality, Internal memory, Screen is scratch resistant
Cons: Very sloooooow, Keyboard slow to appear and disappear, Battery overheats and drains within minutes as above poster stated., Slow to switch between messaging/phone calls/apps
Summary: I ordered this phone from entertainmart and it only took a week to get from Texas to Oregon . This phone is in outstanding condition , better than described ! Hardly any scratches & no dents whatsoever . It is also in perfect working condition all apps work as well as Bluetooth and wifi .
Summary: I have only had the the phone for a couple of weeks but so far am well pleased. I ordered the phone from Walmart on a Monday and it arrived on Two days later on Wednesday which was great. I was concerned about the thin plasic back on the phone but I use a silicone cover so it's not much of a concern for me. My husband doesn't use phone covers so I would be concerned that it would not hold up for him. Love the bigger screen. I am having some problems with the camera.
Summary: Was looking for an upgrade from my galaxy mini but did not want to hurt my pocket. I ordered this one which stated used but very good. The few scratches on it is not noticeable at all and once I put the case I ordered on it, it looked brand new. No scratches on the screen at all. I am in love with my phone.

Summary: Pros: Runs most apps from the store Decent aesthetically Minimal problems thus far Cons: Occasionally shuts down for no apparent reason (perhaps my pen hit the button in my pocket) Short battery life Overall: This phone is good enough for those that don't need the newest features. It works and it does so well enough.
