If you like apps this isn't your phone
21 March 2014
Summary: First of all I purchased this phone as an upgrade from a Samsung express, which didn't have a lot of internal memory either, but you could put your apps on the sd card. This phone you don't have that feature and ONLY 2gb for apps that includes installed and running. You can't move apps to the sd card unless they are larger than 1GB. I have yet to see an application that is 1GB. Live chat was absolutely no help whatsoever.
No victory for Victory as Volume Control Malfunction kills user experience
26 November 2013
Summary: I really liked this phone for its size and features and for about the first 8 months it was great. Then the ear speaker did not respond to the volume control. The problem went away until last month when it happened again. The ear speaker is stuck on the highest volume and it sounds like the caller is on speaker, very loud and distorted. I have to hold the phone 5 inches from my ear and although I move the volume control down, the volume does not change and is very loug.
Pros: Bright display, Durable
Cons: Poor quality, software issue, volume control issue
Summary: This model is probably at the top of the low-end class of smart phones now-a-days. I consider it actually more a mid-range class. Great quality, as always expected from Samsung, Very smooth performance. Very fast and responsive.
Summary: For anyone starting in the Android world, this is a great phone to begin with. While some features are rather annoying - using the Connections Optimizer will turn on WiFi when not desired and the SD card is not treated as the SD card in previous versions of Android - some will enhance your experience with the phone. For example, the NFC capabilities have enabled me to use the phone as a credit card and I am able to leave the real credit card at home.
Summary: This is a good phone, but there are a few issues that hold it back from being a great phone. The first and most annoying for me is that the keyboard is reset to the samsung keyboard after a restart. Second being a random restart or two that I've experienced. (Could have been caused by an app) Also, the screen isn't the best, but for the price It's not awful. Overall this phone is great if you're coming up from something a lot cheaper.
Pros: Inexpensive, great features, call quality, performance
