It's a good buy for what I paid (approx $60)
24 November 2014
Summary: I bought this 'used' to test FreedomPop service. I already had an iPhone 5 (now 6) and wanted to carry a backup phone just in case. FreedomPop offered free 500mb service with this, so I gave it a shot. It's a good buy for what I paid (approx $60). Pro: Good price Size - The small size fits your hand with ease and I carry around without a case since it feels good bare in my hands.
Summary: Its not the phone I wanted and I have never used it. I plan to trade it in for a Samsung Galaxy 5s. I wanted a larger phone but this was the only one I could afford. I have not used it and do not intend to use it. Just waiting until someone puts the 5s on sale. These phones are nothing like my iPhone 5s but Apple finally made the 6s and unless you have an upgrade, there is no way I will pay $700 for a new phone.
Summary: This is a big step up from my previous phone (the POS Kyocera Event), but still not the quality I expect from Samsung. I've only had the phone for two months and it's already starting to "reboot" on its own occasionally. It is constantly running out of memory, and I have to delete data (despite the 32gb SD card). Apps cannot be saved to the card but only on the device, so I can't load it up with all the apps I'd like to have.
Summary: This replaced an older samsung phone. I'm happy with how much faster it runs. Internal memory is low, and you would do well with a memory card. You can't store apps to the sd card without rooting it though. I also need to change my input method from the default keyboard every restart. The carrier map shows complete 4lte coverage for my area, but I haven't once been able to get it. I also don't receive mms messages in a timely matter.
Excerpt: I had to delete all my apps. Have had phone 5 months and the operating system has taken all storage, I can only use as a phone, texting, pictures are on external sd card. This phone is not worth buying.
Excerpt: This phone is ok except the small internal memory of 4 MB. It is great because it is part of the galaxy series. But if you want to play games or download apps, then this isn't the pgone for you.
Summary: Setting up the phone on VM was easy and painless. But when we made our first phone call, we could not hear anything. Found out that the phone was making the call okay as it worked on speaker mode, but the earpiece was bad. Called VM tech support who said they would replace the phone, but with a refurbished one as that is all they had in stock. Or, I could return it through Amazon, but only receive a refund and have to pay to ship it back and then order another phone.
