Bad choice for a phone

ar_barbara, Ebay
13 November 2013
  • 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
3 May 2013
  • 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.

1/2 of a star is way too much for this piece of junk.

win95man, CNET
4 November 2012
  • Summary: i need a phone for 1 thing: to call people. this phone has all kinds of "fancy" features, but all of these are useless when the basic function doesn't want to work. this thing just plain sucks. typing on that touchscreen is virtually impossible. the thing feels cheap. its service sucks. (typical at&t) the battery life is erratic. one day, it will last for a week, then it wont last for a day the next time i charge it.
  • Pros: there are none
  • Cons: it called 911 by itself, it turns on and off by itself, its battery life fluctuates, the service quality sucks, the camera sucks, unlocks in my pocket , feels cheap, touchscreen sucks, it doesn't break when i throw it against the wall

Random turn offs is a BIG turn off

johnsonm137, CNET
5 September 2012
  • Summary: It's simply a shoddy product. I've bought Samsung products before and not had these issues. The company should really rethink this product because it has given me such a bad taste, I won't buy another product of theirs again.
  • Pros: I can access the internet sometimes.
  • Cons: It turns off randomly. I miss calls because I don't always check it to make sure it's on. Whenever I go to make a call, I always have to wait for it to shut down and restart. I have never had a phone that can't perform the most basic of functions.
