Summary: Exactly 6 weeks after I bought the phone it completely stopped working. I treated the phone properly - it did not fall and did not receive any other damage. I am very disappointed by this defective phone. I would recommend NOT buying this phone.
This cell phone is useless for conducting person contact

Summary: I do ONLY phone calls on this phone (no texting, email, etc.) and it is difficult to turn on or off. The screen displays change from one use to the next. It locks itself and has to be turned off/on in order to get it back to normal.
Summary: The crashing problem happened right out of the box. If my friend had gotten it from Newegg, I have no doubt that he could have exchanged it for a good one. Other than that it is a fantastic phone, and worth the price several times over once you realize it just got wet and did not suffer any damage.
Pros: It is as durable and as waterproof as it claims to be. The Corning Gorilla Glass is durable and scratch resistant. The phone has survived several island vacations and more than a few drops. It is great for taking rainy day pictures when nothing else can survive.
Cons: Crashes and reboots every few hours. Usually the display does back off after this event, but sometimes it stays on and kills the battery. My friend wanted to get this at Newegg, but they were out. The source he got it from offered no support, and neither did Samsung in the USA. Only has Android 2...
Excerpt: Don't understand what problems the others have with the internet, it works fine for me. 3g and wifi... battery is fine once you tweak it a bit. I use mine about 2-3 days. I use "2x Battery -" so it shuts off 3g and wifi when its in standby mode. I have no problems with speed.
Pros: Durabilty, Price
Cons: Low internal memory(150mb), Camera only 3.2mp
Summary: I use mine in place of an iPhone while out on the boat. AT&T callibg works but no internet unless on wifi. No worries if it gets rained on (for a bit) or splashed by salt water. I submerged the phone in a cup of water when I first got it and it survived about 2 minutes but haven't fell in the salt...

Excerpt: I am working in an area where there is no signal in gullies and limited signal strength on top of hills. when I get to an area that has no signal and get on to a hill top where I know there is a signal I have to shut the phone down, take the battery out then restart the phone to get a connection.
