Summary: This phone is great! Easy to use. The volume, especially on the speakerphone, is fantastic. The phone is sturdy. Camera is great and takes really nice videos also. Even though this is "unlocked" I couldn't get it to work with my carrier as far as the MMS messages, which is frustrating - That was my whole reason for purchasing this....but hey, you win some and you lose some.
Summary: This samsung with 7.5-7.8 OS can easily provide everything that common people need. I have an iphone 5s also and I'm definitely sure that apple is really much more expensive but aint much more useful than i917 for me.
Summary: Who ever wants to buy this phone do not have any second thoughts.this was the first smartphone that i have bought and i wont regret it. I have att so once i put in my sim everything work. The internet texting and calling all work. I thing that got me angry but i soon got it to work was that i couldn't download any applications on the phone. Then i went to the att store and they told me that i needed an update.
Summary: I have had Iphones, and liked them, but this windows phone is the best I have ever encountered. The operating system works flawlessly, thousands of good practical and entertaining apps are available for any interest or need...and call quality is excellent. battery life could be longer, but I do spend an inordinate amount of time reading on mine so....
A great little Windows Phone...one of the originals and one of the best!

Summary: Why did I buy this particular phone: I wanted a smooth functioning, easy to use smartphone for my dad. Likes: The phone is very easy to use. The live tiles make it easy to see social, email, and other updates with little trouble. The tiles are also big...perfect for my dad to see and touch. Dislikes: Now, that I have updated to WP7.8, I have no dislikes. I will say that the stock OS version is absolutely suitable, as well. The Samsung Focus is a great phone.
