Summary: This is an old fashioned flip phone. I have been using this same model for years and have had to replace them several times but I know how to use it and have no desire to learn how to use a smart phone. All I want to do is make and receive calls.
Excerpt: This phone is good and basic. Battery life on casual use was not the best but it worked to last the whole day. The speakerphone is built into the earpiece (but there is no speaker hole on the outside, like some Samsungs). The dial pad is responsive and easy to use. There is also a camera key to quickly get to the camera, and also take self-portraits (by holding it down when closed). The speaker is nice and loud, good for alarms.
Summary: This is the good Samsung model. Easy to use. Battery life 2-3 days. You can use different melodies for callers. After one month I replaced battery because phone got warm during charging. It's normal for used phones. Good alarm functions.
Summary: I like the SGH A437 so well that I bought an extra to use when my current one poops out. It's been a durable, easy to use, inexpensive cell phone. It's small size is convenient for carry and it has some good features, in my opinion a good buy for your buck.
Summary: I currently have a SGH-437A, dropped it into a bucket of paint, worked for a little while then the paint started drying and the microphone quite working. This is a hard working phone, easy to use and a BIG screen and can change the size of the fonts and colors that are easy on the eyes. if you text you can change the setting to large print. The battery does not last as long as many but no problem putting it on a charger every night or 2.
Summary: The best flip phone I ever had. Using it in USA - no contract. Took it to Europe 2010, slipped their SIM card in it worked great. Just find one that is un-locked, or find way to un-lock it yourself & you are in business. One bad thing: when it needs repairs, it is cheaper to buy another then sending it for repair.
Summary: My husband had this phone for awhile and really liked it. His was looking pretty bad and had a cracked screen but he only wanted the same phone. It has a good battery life and small but not to small size. Easy to learn the functions. Great little phone.
