Summary: This is a GREAT phone!!! don't expect an iphone or a note 2 and your good. if you want a tough phone that can keep up with you and live to tell the tale, this is it. the functions are extremely basic and the headphones really suck but... I have destroyed the Motorola tundra 3 times already so I decided to move on. This phone can stand up to just about anything. I put this phone through hell...
Summary: The radio and mp3 music sounds great. Anyone who buys this though will definitely want the extra micro sd card, as the 7mb internal memory is nothing compared to what you will want to put on it. The camera does well for what it is. It is not a studio camera nor purported to be one, but the pictures it takes are decent and there is a zoom although some of the material said there wasn't.
Summary: Nice rugged phone - water resistant, drop resistant, dust resistant. Economical battery life. Quad band - use any SIM in the world, and wherever you are, it will work. Over-all, a good survival phone. You can keep this as a secondary phone along with your usual smartphone.
Summary: I bought this phone for a month-long trip to Europe. Here in US it worked great with an ATT sim card, and in Europe I bough a Vodafone card. The charger my phone came with is intended for European system, in US one needs an adapter. The phone was quite convenient, once I landed in Detroit I just replaced the Vodafone sim with the ATT sim. This handset is really sturdy and, if the port cover is in its place, waterproof ( I can vouch for that...).
Summary: I have bought three of these phones on different occaisions, and have had no problems using them in Jamaica. Call quality is exceptional with digicel or lime. Phone features are great, ease of use, fm reception great, imbedded flashlight exceptionally bright and useful,camera also great. Waterproof rugged and overall an excellent oudoor cell.RECOMMEND!!!!!!

Summary: Most of the criticisms about this phone are justified. It is clunky, the menu system is obsolete, the screen is small and it is a European version. If you are looking for a smartphone this is not for you. However, if you want a phone that will take abuse and keep working this is the best I have found. I have been using mine for 3 years on a island in the Pacific Ocean. It gets soaked daily with sweat, rain and salt spray and has never failed.
Excerpt: It was my dream phone that if one day a mobile having these capacities than i would suicide to purchase it. after all its being now 2 yrs. and i have kept it in =side cupboard bcoz i like it very much. in every day use it was like by best friend.
Pros: all things it have in that price.
Cons: camera should be 2.0 bcoz for camera lovers it could be little less.
Summary: I love this phone, keeping in mind it is what it is, a basic phone. Maintains great connection, works like a champ in the Philippines and China by simply installing a country specific sim card and carrier. Volume is good, connects easily with Bluetooth and has some good features. I am even able to sync my MS Office Outlook address book, calendar and notes by simply downloading software from Samsung's support website.
