Virgin Mobile Samsung Intercept

Excerpt: About two months ago I purchased the Samsung Intercept with the carrier Virgin Mobile. So far I love the Android 2.1 operating system, which I found easy to use; the battery, which has never died on me; and the included gps, which I use whenever travelling to a foreign location. $25 gets me unlimited data, texts, picture messaging, and 300 minutes every month (and there’s no contract to sign). The 2gb sd card that came in the phone comes in handy.
Not good as a phone, but works well as a GPS logger!

Summary: The Samsung Intercept was my first smartphone. It has such a small amount of RAM that even the most basic of operations takes forever. Often, when receiving a call, the phone would ring but not respond to my attempts to answer the call. Finally, the phone would spontaneously reboot. I'd end up calling the person back 5-10 minutes later. Do NOT consider this device for use as your main phone! This was Virgin Mobile's first Android phone.
Buy something with more power unless you just want to text and talk.

Summary: This is a solidly built tank of a phone, but unless you are primarily a text user this phone lacks in the memory department. That makes it slow running apps and even harder to use lots of apps as most will have to be stored on the sd card. The processor is mediocre at 800 MHz but would be sufficient for most apps if the phone had more internal memory. As it is, the phone chokes and is slow loading apps. Buy something a little more powerful for apps.
Summary: I got this for my little sister. I had one when virgin mobile came out with it years ago. I feel it's a good android to start off on. She likes the full keyboard which is one of the reasons why I got it. Her service is under kajeet which is also great. If you're looking for a simple android with a keyboard it's cool. but if you want something fast and updated go for something else.
Summary: I got this phone in black for Christmas. The Intercept sounds great in theory, but not when you get it. It is incredibly slow, ridiculously slow, to the point where it is almost not usable. I timed it once-- the startup time can easily take 5-10 minutes. It can't hold many apps because of the storage limit; if you buy an SD card like me, it's huge waste. Almost no apps are compatible with the SD Card.
Pros: Well, it's a smartphone. It's at least better than a flip phone., Pull-out keyboard is great for texting
Cons: Super slow-- up to 5 minutes to start up, takes very long time to load apps, Never does what is supposed to, Horrible battery life, No space, most apps can't go on SD card, Overheats, Tiny Screen, Crashes all the time, Can't find WiFi

Summary: I love, love, love this phone. It is like a mini lap top in the palm of my hand. Touch the screena and I am on Facebook or Ebay, (the 2 sites I go to most)Easy to text. Can't say enough good things about this cell.
"Still Using this thing! It is a great phone as always."

Pros: Best camera for price. Overall a great phone with all the features wanted and most often I found it to have more feature than people use, or know about. I use 90% of it's features.
Cons: ROM & RAM is the only thing that limits this phone. If it had just double this memory, and heck from what I saw on the LG copy of it with extra 50% more more, the performance is massively better. Almost any issues this phone has is related to memory.
