Rated 3 out of 5 Eventually disappointed
Bought this phone last March so it's almost one year old. Several months ago the handset volume froze at the loudest setting and I can't turn it down. Almost the same as speaker phone. I read on the Samsung web site someone else had the same issue. Apparently a problem with the OS (icecreamsandwich) and the phone. He got a refurbished phone that developed the same issue. Slowly a phone I initially loved has become a disappointment. It operates slower & slower. Occasionally switches apps randomly. I'll be in messages & it will open the camera. The built-in storage is a bit small. Downloaded 11 apps I have 311MBs left. Data speed is less than desirable at times, even in 4G areas. Positives-small but still decent screen, bigger than iPhone. Has many useful widgets. Camera takes nice pics. I have 4 different email addresses and have no issues getting any of my emails on all 4, no prob. GPS is reliable, Going to Service to see about a fix on volume. Likely will upgrade to S4.

Rated 3 out of 5 by chrislili04 This product works fine, but very limited on memory
I bought this phone as a cheaper replacement option after my iPhone was stolen. It has served me well, but does not have the memory I need to use a tool to help run my business. I will be looking to upgrade in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mrshansen92 Great basic phone
This would be a great phone...for your young child or grandmother, its very user friendly.
Doesn't have very much memory, and hold about 3 small apps and 2 bigger ones like Facebook or a "farm game" the camera is pretty decent as well as call quality, and the gps is awesome.
Over all it gets pretty good reception better than my husbands galaxy 3. The battery lasts FOREVER.
The screen is nice but it is a small phone. The operating system is basic android so you still get the feeling of a smart phone. Not too big or heavy. Not super fast. This is a great "starter smart phone."
DO NOT pick this phone if you need it for a "Business phone" or "keep your life on your phone" the memory just cannot handle it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by vettehead1989 This phone is on the poor side
I recieved this phone as a replacement. Though I am happy with the durability of the phone, everything else is fairly poor. The performance of the phone is less than adequate. Very slow to react to requests. Battery life is ok, but don't plan on listening to music for a long period of time as it will kill the battery if you tend to use the phone while listening. Overall the phone just stinks. If I had a choice I would not have picked it as a replacement. I only chose this device because the other was much worse.
