Durable cell for the right price. but has small internal memory.
10 March 2014
Summary: One of the toughest and most resilient cell phones I've ever had. I took it snowboarding and fell on top if it several times and it still works like a charm. my biggest gripe about this cell is that it has a very small internal memory. if you update all the built in apps, you'd run out of room fast, and some system apps can't eve transfer to your SD.
changing from one tower to another when signal strength is low

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. It appears when I get into service with another tower the phone doesn't see it and is looking for the tower near home.
Summary: I purchased this phone (my first smartphone) with the intention of getting up to speed with the latest technology (I am getting on a bit ) However I cannot afford to run it with the features in use..In sat nav mode, it connects to mobile internet as well as gps,and in the space of 6 minutes it used an incredible £15 worth of data,it continually connects to update pre loaded apps..you can turn all this off and use it as a standard phone but that defeats the object.
Good, but need to be a phone geek to avoid memory issue

Summary: Three things steered me to this phone - it's a Samsung Galaxy, it's waterproof and it's not too big! For me the size is perfect - fits in your pocket and has a reasonable size screen. Having said that, the typing keys can be a bit small and awkward when in "portrait" mode, but rotating the phone to "landscape" makes the keyboard bigger and easier to use. Yes it is waterproof although only for half-an-hour submersion. I am however disappointed with the memory.
Excerpt: I have a habit of breaking phones. Not on purpose, it is just that I can be a bit clumsy when transferring them from my civiles into my working clothes and have been known to drop a couple of them. Hard. Breaking them totally beyond repair or otherwise rendering them not that pretty to look at any more. So you can understand my reluctance to fork out on an I-Phone/ Smart-Phone any time soon..... Until now....
Pros: Built to take a bit of punishment and still keep on fighting . . . . .
Cons: I have a habit of breaking phones . Not on purpose, it is just that I can be a bit clumsy when tran

Summary: das Positive: Kein Handy kann so viel wegstecken, wie dieses Handy. Mein Exemplar fiel - ohne Schutzhülle - bestimmt 20 Mal aus eineinhalb Metern Höhe auf den Boden und "übernachtete" im Regen im Schlamm. Es geht nach wie vor und hat keine Kratzer! das Negative: Der Systemspeicher ist so gering, dass schon 2013 eigentlich Schluss war.
