dont compare this phone with smart phone! this is feature (value) phone. i bought it in Semarang, Indonesia (july 2012) IDR 815,000 (about USD 86.06). eventhough it doesn't have 3g, wi-fi & gps connection, it is IP 67 certified phone & this is Samsung phone. i've soaked it into water. awesome! it has basic social media tools such as FB & Twitter. while on the go, i can listen to my favorite songs & radio without headset. yes, it has built-in internal antenna. generally, this phone is good.
Good phone, but the screen is weird. It produces different saturation for left and right eye. I got dizzy sometimes. Is it 3D screen?
I think this phone is a very poor substitute. I had it a week the screen scratched badly, the back comes off easily the i nternet access is rubbish and takes a life time, and it shuts down when it feels like it. Last model was 100% better. Just a shame i'm stuck with it for 2 years now
sayon, 06 Jul 2012is this rain proof? I want to talk while walking into the rain... Even this one is rain proof, someone might also got struck by lightning while talking the phone. Certainly, there's no lightning-proof phones, right?
I just bought it 3 days ago.
As far for this phone review:
+ it is quite easy to type short message
+ water resistant, I can use my phone during swimming. Hehe
+ Superb battery life. I used it for 2 days and the battery indicator still full!!
+ can turn on radio without earphone
+ easy interface, user friendly.
- the body is to big. I would like if it is as small as W350
- frequently to make mistake for push the center of d-pad while texting message. it would send anyway when you accidentally push the center d-pad button even you are not finished the texting.
It still a candy-bar phone. It shouldn't cost $89.00. Plus, its a Samsung phone.
I think this phone is a real gem! Its not for everyone, but its my biggest selling handset. I'm a manager of an orange store in a strong farming and building community. Hard working, fantastic battery life, fantastic signal and basic social networking integration. Love it!

Chud, 22 Apr 2012I farm in SA, and am just a bit peeved that it doesn't have a cover. It may be water resistent... moreHi Chud. I got bought this phone a week ago from a local Vodacom outlet. Suggest getting any Bodyglove screen guard and just trim it to size. I found the spare I had for the BB9700 did not require too much trimming. Other than that I am very happy with the phone...does what a phone should do and an awesome battery life!!
