  • Summary: Speaker comes on whenever my cheek hits the screen. It goes into different programs after hanging up. The previous model worked better.

Bad choice for a phone

  • Summary: The phone locks up and the touch button on the screen nor the button on the side of the phone will unlock it. The only way is to remove the battery and put it back in.

Worthless JUNK

Movie'd, Amazon

  • Summary: Had THREE of these over two years, the last two in the last week. The first one worked for a good while but started turning off for no reason and drops calls all the time. The two I ordered to replace it have severe problems already. I rebooted one 10 times and it wont stay on so Im sending it back tomr. and giving up finally. I got addicted to the super small size and weight.

Horrible phone with inherent software and firmware problems that can not be fixed

Quest936, Amazon
9 March 2013
  • Summary: This phone is horrible. And after contacting Samsung I have found out mine isn't a lemon. It is an inherent problem with ALL of them (yet for some reason they didn't recall it or come up with a fix). It cuts off by itself, even in the middle of calls. Do NOT depend on its alarm because it will go off at the wrong times if it goes off at all. The touch screen is horrible calibrated and you can't change it.

Would give it half a star if I could

  • Summary: It's easier to say what's not wrong with this model then to say what is. Shuts off on its own, crappy signal, speaker randomly stops working right in the middle of the conversation, touch screen is not accurate and and there's no option to calibrate it... Pretty much garbage - do not buy.

Unless your luck can win you the lottery, don't get this.

  • Summary: I've unfortunately had an extremely terrible experience with this phone - even moreso than the other user who wrote about it randomly restarting. Before I go into details, here's a list of pros and cons after using this phone since last March until last month when I switched back to my older original Samsung Solstice (which is absolutely amazing). Pros: + Battery life is above average, lasting for a few days of constant messaging. + The touchscreen is responsive.

  • Summary: This is the worst phone I ever owned. Half the time I don't even recieve phone calls and when i do more than not the phone turns off in the middle of the call. it also just shuts itself off for no reason. I would NOT recommend this phone to anyone.

A big hassle for little performance.

sincityseal, Amazon

  • Summary: Before I get into why this phone deserves a tittle denouncing it as a hassle, I will review this little phone's positive aspects. First of all, this phone is indestructible! Relatively slim, light, and wearing a glass touch screen, this phone could have easily been fragile and useless beyond even its true capacity, But I can say that I have dropped this phone more than a million times and it works just the way it did when I first opened the box.
