excellent little smart phone

Summary: I've had this now for thirty days and its s smart little device. Its not for power users, power users need to buy a galaxy s3 or higher. But this works excellently as a basic smart phone I have several apps installed. One sad limitation is YOU CANNOT move apps to the sd card. That's an android limitation, this phone will probably not support lots of games and apps, only a few at a time.
Summary: This is my second Galaxy so there was not much to be surprised about. My old phone was a Reverb. The only real difference is that the Victory is 4G where available. When it's on 4G, the speed is much greater. Where I live 4G is most everywhere. But on the road it is mostly 3G - okay - but don't expect to use the internet a lot. One complaint I have with both phones is that Virgin Mobile keeps trying to install its "Essentials" package.
Summary: This is the best smart phone I have ever had, not that I have had many. I use Virgin and there have been no issues in several months. I do have issues with Andriod, but this phone runs it as well as any I have seen. I can easily run GPS, Netflix, Pandora, Gmail, Yelp, Facebook, browse news websites, and I can actually make and receive clear phone calls. I cannot believe how easy Swipe is, I have large hands that I use for work and I can actually text with this thing.
Summary: Great 4G LTE phone. Call quality is good and speed is great. Lots of great features. Touchscreen is smooth and efficient. Virgin Mobile uses Sprint Service so that is a huge plus. Love the front facing camera and all of the apps like the photo editor and the camera quality is pretty good for a cell phone. Sound quality is also great.
One month into ownership I discovered this phone was great at one thing

Summary: One month into ownership I discovered this phone was great at one thing: putting itself into weird modes. If you're lucky, it'll just be "safe mode," and you'll just have to pull the battery out. If you're unlucky, it'll be "emergency call" mode, and you'll have to do a factory reset. Which wipes out everything. Oh, but it's easy to restore -- you just have to re-download every app you want, re-type in all your passwords, etc., etc., etc. This phone is cheap.
Summary: This is a pretty decent phone, especially for the casual smartphone user like myself. Virgin Mobile has been great to work with, and the phone itself has held together in the year that I've owned it. However, there are two things that I've learned that you may want to keep in mind with this phone. There is very little physical memory on the phone. This can easily be solved with a micro SD card, which is cheap and easy to find. The issue comes with the Android software.
