Summary: So far so good. the phone has a very crisp and clear picture. My only peeve is that the battery is poor. It doesn't hold charge for long and runs down even faster when the WI-fi is turned on. For that reason i gave it four stars.
Excerpt: A really good budget phone, for not much money. Since the Android 4.1.2 JB update, the phone is better to use but sometimes there's lagg or slowness. It's fast enough for me, and the camera isn't bad. The screen is not really great, but not bad.
Pros: Nice software (Android 4.1.2 with TouchWiz UI), Fast with it's fine processor, Easy to use, also with one hand, Nice camera
Cons: Low resolution display, Little battery, Little memory
Summary: Pretty decent smart phone for a cheaper price. My wife loves it and works well with ATT GoPhone. This model is intended for european market and manual are usally not in english. But you can download the english version on samsung website.
Summary: I purchased this phone to use in South America, and yes the previous reviews are true this is the GL-I8160L version of the phone. Which as of this writing of this review, the phone has a official Jelly Bean 4.1.2 update that has been released for this phone model. You can update the phone to Jelly Bean using the Orion loader and the official Jelly Bean update from Samsung-updates website by looking up the exact model number and version.
Summary: I am not a heavy app user. I have no data plan. I only use WiFi. I got this to replace my MP3 player, for TouchOSC, a video/still camera, Angry Birds. This is plenty sufficient hardware for me for a price that it reasonable (two-fifty). If the upgrades are for real, it may be an even better bargain. Overall, I'm very happy with this.
Pros: Inexpensive dual-core, expandable to 32GB microSD, decent screen, size, mass. Does what it should. Is stable.
Cons: Description states that the OS can be upgraded, but that is only a rumor. This phone seems to be a non-US market phone, as there is no record of it in the Samsung US site (it shows up in UK and UAE). If you are fine with Android 2.3.6 (as I am) then you won't be disappointed.
