Summary: Bought this product for a teenager, phone looks good but this phone shuts off automatically, and locks up. Very irritating to have to remove the battery 4 to 5 times a week. Color is very pretty and works great other than the power issue. Features are good and easy to use.
Summary: Samsung and Virgin should be ashamed to sell this phone. I'm not normally the type to write quick reviews, but if you found yourself in an emergency with this phone you would literally be screwed. Need to make a phone call? The screen lags when you're turning the screen back on. Want to listen to music? Not if the battery falls below 15%. Want to surf the web? Whoops, your phone is randomly crashing.
Summary: I have owned 3 of these phones. Warranteed each time. This is a good running andriod phone. But it has two issues to work around. It is Quite Warm against your head!!! Sprint Tech centers have told my I'm not the only one noticing this. It must have lots of emf fields. So I always use a ear piece. I never hand held it. But had no problems at all when using a blue tooth or old fashioned ear wire. Worked great for that. Second issue is the ear wire jack tends to fail.
Summary: I got this product in March, and was fairly pleased with it. Then I updated all the preinstalled apps, and it lagged a ton, so I uninstalled all updates, and didn't have any aftermarket apps on there. About a month ago, I was texting someone, and my phone ran out of space randomly to receive texts. I did some looking and find that it updated everything again. It took me two days to restore my phone to working status.
Summary: First, I switched from T Mobile in 2011 when there was talk of them being consumed by A T&T. YUCK. I loved T Mobile, great customer service & I had very little reasons to ever call in for support. I was paying around $70 a month for a non android plan and I had the Motorola Zn5 which took unbelievably good photos with the onboard Kodak camera. But I was too far behind in technology to stay in that phone profile.
Makes a decent thrown projectile. Too slow for Android OS.

Summary: In short, this phone is too slow to run Android. You will get 5 frames a second on Angry Birds, so don't even thing about it. Texting is an adventure, and you will miss phone calls simply because the phone is too slow to recognize that you trying to answer. The phone does play music, and has the feature of playing your favorite music via the speakerphone. If for any reason you need to pause your music or turn it down in a hurry, expect it to take 10 seconds.
Summary: I got this phone for my 17th birthday in January 2011. I love the phone at first and it was also my first android. At first it was fast acting and the touch screen was very responsive. About 4 month later the phone started slowing down, the battery started sucking (i mean like 3hr life) and it started to freezing a lot. On my 6th month the touch screen like totally died and virgin sent me a replacement phone.
