Summary: Bought it for a cheap and easy unlockable smartphone. Wasn't able to make it run the most current Android OS, but it runs Gingerbread nicely, and had it rooted no problem. Functional replacement for my broken smartphone. Got what I paid for, works great!
Summary: I was looking for an upgrade to the Blackberry Curve, but did not want the most current phone. I found it in the Samsung Galaxy S. This is a great phone! It has good photographic abilities. Additionally, I love the fact that I can use my Golf applications.
Summary: I do not know that much about this phone...but there are many features I have never had in a phone before. Frustrating at times b/c it is so different. There are some features I miss from my "dumb" phone and I could have them with the Mesmerize...just need to take the time to read the disk. Overall a great phone.
Cons: Takes screen captures randomly when lock button is pushed, sent back and new one does same, gave up. 8 months old, good condition, but now it doesn't want to connect to computer, doesn't always stay on charger, out of room... more in summery
Summary: This is the best beginner smart phone out there for the money. I owned one for 2 years with no problem. Recently sold it on ebay for $75, only to have my daughter wash hers in the washing machine. It didn't live thru that. Very fast network for internet and playing games on. Very loud speaker and ringer. The only downfall was the battery life. If you play games or get on the internet at all you will use up the battery fast. So carry a charger.
Summary: My wife had an HTC Rhyme and has not has near the problems I have had with this phone. 1) GPS function is very poor. I cannot use the navigator function on Google maps because it cannot find a GPS signal 75% of the time. 2) When I receive a text message (at least 4-5 times/wk) it does not show up in the icon window or indicate I have a message. I have to go into my text message screen then it shows up there.
Summary: My wife really loves this phone. The Galaxy is definately an upgrade from the HTC Wildfire. It is light and resourceful. The Amoled screen is really bright, crisp and displays really vibrant colors. The ear mic and speaker phone are loud and clear. I've heard some users say that they have problems with the battery life. However, this is not the case with my wife's phone, when using the standard 1500mah battery.
Summary: I BOUGHT THIS PHONE BECAUSE I WANTED A TOUCH SCREEN PHONE AND I ALSO WANTED TO BE ABLE TO RUN MY EBAY BUSINESS WHEN I WAS AWAY FROM HOME ... THIS PHONE IS AMAZING AND SO WORTH THE MONEY SPENT I WOULD BUY AGAIN AND I WOULD TELL OTHERS TO BUY.
