Poor Battery Performance

DaMenehune, Samsung

  • Summary: Had this phone for a month now and disappointed with performance of battery. It does not seem to hold the charge but for about two days and this with not much use. Used only for talking with no texting, photos, Internet, or Bluetooth. Could be a bad battery. Phone very good, otherwise.
  • Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Lightweight
  • Cons: poor battery performance

Very Good Value

  • Summary: My wife and I both have this phone. Low price from T-mobile. We both like the phone except for one thing-the volume button is on the side and gets mashed almost anytime one picks up the phone or even while talking. I would give the phone four stars overall but had to give it only one star for 'design'. My four stars would be for the overall value and features for a low-priced, simple flip phone.
  • Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Inexpensive, Lightweight, value overall
  • Cons: volume control

text messaging

  • Summary: The sound on an incoming text message is very low. Unless the phone is in my pocket or sitting beside me, I cannot hear the incoming text message. This phone is supposed to be an "upgrade" from the previous model, but I am really not happy with it.
  • Pros: Built-in speakers, Inexpensive, Lightweight
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations

Good phone for the price

  • Summary: This phone has a great speaker, sound is clear. The screen is a bit small, so sms are hard to read and of course the keypad isn't easy to write sms either. All in all, this is a great phone for somebody that just wants to make and receive calls. Can't complain for a phone at that price!
