A good sounding but mediocre phone beset with problems.

  • Summary: Samsung should have dispensed with some of the nonsense features. Given the circumstances above, I doubt that most of these silly enhancements even work. Samsung, and Verizon, ought to have given their customers a durable basic phone. They seem to want to give it the appearance of being more than what it is. They failed miserably and I regret having purchased the phone and regret having renewed a two-year contract.
  • Pros: The voice quality and signal strength appear to be excellent, the keypad is easy to use and the fonts are not all difficult to read. But this might be faint praise.
  • Cons: It takes up to 5 seconds for the screen and background to appear after one has opened the flip. The calender icon goes away only after one removes the battery. The alarm does not work and the keypad backlight functions only occasionally. Garbage!

Not a good phone to carry in you're pocket.

  • Summary: I regret my choice of phone
  • Pros: Acceptable call quality
  • Cons: My screen broke in my front pocket without a noticeable impact and the external keys never stay locked which kills the battery very quickly if it goes unnoticed.

Not The Best

  • Excerpt: Long battery life, large bulky flip phone - poor screen resolution - camera okay, not great - lack of accessories, i.e. cases/covers - fair call quality in fringe areas - okay call quality in good signal area - not one of Samsung's best phones. Feature phone uses are being left out when it comes to good feature phones, carriers plan to force everyone into a smartphone to generate more revenue.
  • Pros: Long Battery Life
  • Cons: Bulky - no cases/covers - poor screen - marginal call quality
