Summary: The GT-S5690 was my introduction to smartphones. It was very easy to learn touchscreen and android functions on this phone. You also get all the capability of gps, bluetooth, voice recording, and voice search. Above all, this phone is water-resistant and has a durable glass digitizer! While it is not indestructible, it can stand up to more than many newer, more expensive smartphones.
Summary: It is one of the best phones I have ever owned. The Corning Gorilla Glass is durable and scratch resistant. It has a great battery life, which is good, especially when you are on the move, using GPS. The Play Store has 1000's of apps to choose from. The phone has an amazing build quality, and is very tactile as well, the display is well lit, and it's easy to customise your phone, to your own liking. It is great for taking rainy day pictures when nothing else can survive.
