  • Excerpt: I purchased this Samsung mobile phone and I recommend that no one purchase this phone due to the fact that it not navigational friendly. It is slow. The navigation keys are hard to find and not readily accessible in times of urgency.

Bad Choice

  • Excerpt: when first buying this phone, I thought it was great.  I loved it for the first month until I started getting the white screen of death.  After going through hell with samsung to have it repaired, two months later and 2 trips to Texas, I had it back and working again.  Less than 6 months later I started having problems again.  Then once again 2 months later after receiving a reconditioned phone.

Great phone

  • Excerpt: This phone is overall just great. Great look, lightweight, great video, clear screen, good battery life, very very tough even when dropped several times, easy to text and find your contacts. I am a logger and this phone keeps better signal than our southern link work phones, even while in the middle of no where. On several occasions my boss has asked to borrow my phone to make a call.

Samsung M520 is a GREAT phone.

  • Excerpt: I've read some of these negative reviews and I just can't agree. I have had the M520 for almost 2 years and THIS PHONE IS TOUGH. I have dropped this phone, on average, once per day for since I bought it new. I have dropped it on hardwood. I have dropped it on asphalt. I have dropped it on gravel. I have dropped it and then stepped on it. I have dropped it and then accidentaly kicked it. I have even dropped it in a sink full of water and the 520 just keeps going.

not so happy with my decision

  • Excerpt: after only a couple months of having this phone the screen started acting up and then just went completely white to the point where i could still call people on my speed dial and other numbers but i could not see anything on my screen, not even the time. i called the company and they suggested that i bring it in to a store and pay for it to be tested.

  • Excerpt: We have had this phone for about two years. We have had to have it replaced 4 times in that two years because of the screen. Our carrier even discontinued the phone because of all the issues it has. The screen will just go white, and the phone will freeze. There are no pros to mention. The ringers a to quite and its not durable at all. We even bought a cover to help protect the phone but even that did not help.

I like it.

  • Excerpt: I've had this phone for a year. I like it. I love the way it looks and the sliding design. It's very sturdy. I've dropped it several times and you can't tell at all. It picks up signal pretty well too (much better than my previous phone). It has it's cons though too. It freezes up quite a bit and the back is almost impossible to get off so I can't even take the battery out to unfreeze it.
  • Pros: design, appearance, very sturdy, good signal
  • Cons: freezes up, can't do multiple page texts, speakerphone glitch

Good phone

  • Excerpt: I bought this in June 2008 to replace my m330 ( i think that was the name) that fell apart. So I had this for a year. It is extremely sturdy. I have dropped it plenty and it still looks and worksd like new. the tv feature works rather well. I seem to have problems hearing and understanding anyone that calls me from a different network but i do not know if thats just my reception or the phone itself. ONE THING I HATE........NO HEADPHONE JACK!
  • Pros: Sharp looking, good TV play
  • Cons: can not charge and listen to music at the same time, you have to have an adapter and a compatable headset to listen to music. pain

Stupid Phone

anonymous #2, Phone Arena

  • Excerpt: The phone is sleek, silver, and takes better pics than some of the other sprint phones. great bargain right? CORRECT! until you get the AWESOME white screen of death! then the phone is just a total pain. I don't advise getting it people ALWAYS drop their phone at one time or another, so a phone SHOULD be made to handle a little rough handleing. it makes no sense that a phone would stop working after a minor fall. mine stopped working before i even dropped it.
  • Pros: sleek design, easy to use
  • Cons: white screen of death, phone started freezing at around 3 months
