Easy to use and manage

cantavilla, Ebay

  • Summary: Very good option to a blackberry if you like this type of phone. I really enjoy it and trust the Samsung name. Phone is of very good quality and camera is excellent. Good clarity and easy to use and manage.

Not user friendly

equniox, Ebay
4 January 2014
  • Summary: We purchased this phn thinking it would be a good alternative to the bulky sliders we have, but within minutes of receiving them we realized they would not work for us but decided to give them a try anyway. The key pad is so small that the tip of my smallest finger covers 4 keys and texting is a nightmare, not only that the user interface is so confusing my wife wanted to throw the thing out the window as we were driving down the road.

Great phone for texting and calling

blueyes8x7, Ebay

  • Summary: This is the perfect phone for you if you need it only for texting and calling. It is pretty user friendly. I down-graded from an Iphone so in comparison i am dealing with totaly differernt applications and what is available. it offers email and a camera. :) i dislike that it is somewhat hard to text on the small keyboard buttons. I like that i do not have to pay for a data plan. it has a great battery, I charged my phone 3 days ago and it is still going strong.

  • Summary: Really don't like this phone. Keys are so small they go under my nails when I text. The phone is much smaller than it looks. And the keys some times quit working when i am texting. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE.

Good phone

Debra Schnell, Amazon
10 November 2013
  • Summary: The phone works very well. It does not have very good ring tones, and does not take good pictures. It is hard to figure out how to use the question mark key as well as the exclamation key, but other than that, it is a really good phone.

A solid low cost full QWERTY phone in a small and light package.

k-snax, Ebay
14 June 2013
  • Summary: This phone is a good value for basic text and talk, particularly if you want something in a really small package without a data plan. (But if you really want a true smartphone, the HTC Aria is fantastic alternative to the Magnet in a similar size.) Anyway, after a month of use, here's what I like: - Size. With a QWERTY keyboard, it is simply hard to get much smaller and lighter. I often have to double check my pants pocket to make sure I actually have it.
