Excerpt: I have had the phone over 2 years and it is a great phone very durable and easy to use. I love the talk to text feature and how accurate it is compared to others. I use it mostly for talk & text and it is beyond reproach. When using the internet it connects fast and has always stayed connected. Reviews that complain about the connectivity probably has to do with their service provider not the phone. I use Verizon and have never had any issues.
Excerpt: As my first smartphone it has far exceeded my expectations with one exception, the WiFi range is awful. When connecting to my home router (Linksys WRT54G) I get 1 of 3 WiFi bars at ~20-50 FT away, beyond that no connection and only able to get all 3 bars at ~2 FT from the router. Same happens in reverse when used as a mobile hotspot.
Pros: Seemingly indestructable for a smartphone, 4.0, TouchWiz UI, Excellent Battery Life, QWERTY keyboard, 4G LTE
