Summary: What a poor choice of mine. It cannot be considered a smartphone because it's so slow.... so, slow.... it freezes all the time, it's bad for typing, and the batteries? If you don't use, it will last forever, but with normal usage, only lasts a day.

Summary: In theory, this phone sounds like a perfect fit for travelling to multiple countries and the USA, without being locked into global roaming and a contract. But it did not work. It would not acknowledge the 2nd SIM card when inserted, did not even give me the option to manually select.
Summary: I bought this phone for international travel and when it works I have no problems. Have used over half a dozen different countries sim cards but after 3 weeks travelling through SE Asia the battery wouldn't charge all the time and the phones software would crash on me.
Summary: Phone runs way too slow and android systems is out of date. Cannot use apps like Facebook or Skype, only texting apps. The big apps take up all the phones ram capacity and causes it to freeze.
Summary: I purchased this phone for international travel as it can accommodate two SIM cards. The order and delivery process from Amazon was flawless. But the phone itself has an inherent problem in that it comes with a lot of (in my mind "junk") software from Google and Samsung that cannot be removed.
Summary: I purchased this phone to use in Mexico. I found out very quickly that the memory on the phone is very, very limited and installing more than one or two applications such as skype and/or whatsapp will max you out. I keep getting a memory full message and had to delete SMS texts to clear the phone.
