Battery not good

  • Summary: I love the phone. I ordered the exact phone I had before.... BUT, it will not hold a charge. My old phone battery is better than this new battery. I would like a new battery.

Not as good as Samsung Eternity

Amazon Customer "Alyn", Amazon

  • 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.

Great features and easy to use. Bad battery life.

  • Summary: Overall its features are very good. The battery life is terrible. The icons are easy to use and organize. The tools are also very easy to use and work well. Phone usage and volume are great. The querty keyboard is responsive but I have large fingers so often will type the wrong letter and have to redo it. It is sluggish to go into the keyboard and that is annoying. The one thing that holds this phone back is the battery life as it is terrible.

Temperamental at times, not very tough, good for camera and texting.

  • Summary: Not the best phone to carry in your pocket. Touch screen loses it's memory regularly (push the menu icon, you get the address book, try to dial and push the "2" it gives you the "1"). Apt to initalize at any time, lose stored numbers on speed dial or address book. Basically, unreliable. The camera is above average, the texting feature is good. Seems to pick up signal well.

  • Summary: Touch screen is not as responsive. Bluetooth is more difficult to pair but once paired, very responsive. Call quality is decent. Good battery life.

A low-end alternative to a more pricey smart phone. Battery dies quickly!

  • Summary: Lots of features including a TV app. But the main screen is confusing to use and icons are huge - hiding your background pictures. The battery life is expected to reach 3 hours of talk time, but in all actuality I'm lucky to get 1.5hrs in right after removing the phone from the charger. Takes a short time to charge the battery so that is a definite indication of how little power the battery provides.

Just not worth it if you text- doesn't group conversations, no qwerty

m7i7r, Ebay
30 July 2012
  • Summary: I really wish there was a qwerty keypad, but I will get used to that. The rotation device that allows the touchscreen qwerty to work doesn't come up half the time. The conversations aren't grouped together like the Samsung Strive so you have to just guess at what was said before. The camera is great and it has a flash. Do I wish I bought another phone? Yeah, but I will get over it.

The screen sucks

  • Summary: Screen goes out quick. so it went out on me and now i have to buy a different phone on top of this because it's a hassle. I know i could get a new screen but it is definitely not worth the time or money
