Summary: I bought this phone for my girlfriend. When we got it the box was damaged. She took it in to at&t to get the phone working, but at&t can't get mobile data to work. Its a good phone to use if you dont care about using the phone under wifi conditions only. However thats not what I expected to get when I bought this phone for her.
Summary: this was my first official smart phone so i was excited to receive it in January 2014 however when it arrive there was problems first with the charger so l bought a new charger then there is a problem with the battery so l am about to buy a new battery and this is only May2014 four months since i have this phone it was suppose to be a new phone i am angry and i don,t think i got value for money hence it got two stars buyers beware
Summary: This phone did not come with a manual in the box except how to do quick set up and the online instructions for features has a lot to be desired. Also the phone does not keep the personalized ring tones that you set for each contact if you turn the phone off then back on, you have to reset them all again, finally gave up on trying. Also, trying to remove apps from the phone is almost impossible.
Summary: I bought the mini because of its size and because of my experience with the full size S III. I could not use the 32 GB micro sd in the mini that I was using in the full size S III because it would randomly say that it could not recognize the card. It worked OK with a 4 GB card. I have not tried anything between 4 and 32. The 32 GB still works fine in the full size S III. The performance of the mini is much slower than the full size. The mini will randomly lock up on me.
Summary: I was happy until I started having problems with it charging. I can not seem to ever get a full charge any longer. I'm very disappointed. I like how the phone operates though. I have had the phone checked out by 2 different specialists and they can not pinpoint the problem with the charging issue. I actually wish I could send tis one back and get another. I think something has just gone wrong with this particular phone.
Summary: before I buy my queries amazon page. my question was to buy it and that is not compatible for my sim card in Ecuador. I was told that there was no problem. the team was unlocked. but the phone was not compatible cell company and had to switch to another company if the phone was compatible. I had to lose an unlimited plan megs by the change.
Summary: Hello.... I bought this phone... with the intent of haveing the best over all plan... as I have never had a cell phone before... with my research the best deal for me... was to buy an unlocked cell phone and use stright talk with 45$ a month with no contract and unlimeted talk text and web... With my never haveing a cell phone befoe I find I must order the sim card through stright talk and install it and then it will work....
