Diappointed and Frustrated
30 September 2013
Summary: This phone came in promptly. It worked for 10 days and the touchscreen became unresponsive. I tried taking the battery out for a few minutes several times. I did not drop this phone or get it wet or anything unusual. I did contact the seller and they said they didn't know what I was doing with the phone for 10 days. I could not RESET the phone because the touchscreen would not work. I am very disappointed and will not ever buy from this seller again or recommend them.
Summary: I bought this phone to replace another Mythic that no longer worked. It came with a batter 1/2 the capacity of the phone that I'd had, requiring frequent charging. I forgot that I'd upgraded the battery in the first phone. New battery is on order and should fix the problem. Great product, shipped promptly and arrived as billed. Excellent transaction.
Summary: Quality was low, battery life-awful! Wondering if it was refurbished or just a crappy phone. I used to have this phone years ago when it was new, I do not like the one received from this seller.
Summary: Touchscreen is terrible. You need to press the screen really hard to get the 'correct' thing done. Otherwise, it will stay dumb! I used to have iPhone before for 2 years, and I got this one only to get rid of dataplan (as I was not using dataplan much). This phone doesn't need to have dataplan and that's the only good thing about this phone.
Summary: This a very Large Pyle of "Phone" I have given this away "Twice" & received it back Both times. Feels like a kids toy in your hand. The screen is hard to use when pushing on it. The battery went dead within 6 hours of NON USE! Junk Justin.
Summary: I bought a Samsung Mythic as an upgrade to my Samsung Eternity. I'm glad I kept the Eternity as it is a better phone in all respects. I recently switched my AT@T Sim card back to the Eternity and couldn't be happier. The only thing lacking on the Eternity is speed dialing which I can get along without. See other reviews on the Mythic to understand the undesirable bugs that have to be dealt with in everyday use of the Mythic.
Summary: So far a good phone for the price. I like the size of the screen. Texting is really easy on it and I like the side menu you can pull over. So far no problems except the battery that came with it died after full charge in about 45 minutes. I was sent a new battery for free. All good.
