Old today, good phone at the time. Very tough. survived 2 years of constant dropping ( tiny chip in corner), low memory so I just used opera mini.
I still to this day miss its keyboard. and the fact it actually fits in your pocket.
The only thing to bring the death of this phone, was one night it fell behind my bed plugged in ( when I grabbed it, usb plug bent wrong way) the micro plug in detached from the soldered on part of its memory.
I own it since August 2011 and still using it. Besides its technology has been outdated, it is still working fine even after flashing many times, it only gives problem with its wifi. It is working but i have to reboot system after toggling wifi 4-5 times on/off cause it gives error.
People says their cellphones are slow and hanging but they never have dealt with this model and people still using this can handle any hardware with their patience. :P
Probably the best model built by Samsung.
Mine is alive since 2010. After many flashed roms, falls and heavy use, the only thing damaged is wifi and I think that was on me. Best money I've ever spent.
This Samsung Galaxy 551 is a very good but it is shockproof. It started the system and then working! It is in a good health in more than 5 years old.
Awesssome Phone which is still running smooth still with me for more than 5 years, I am now getting a new Oneplus pne but still wish to use this phone and not sell it off, phone was dropped so many times from my hands, but still worked great without any issues.
only problem it gives me now is the battery drainout even after replacing with the new, but overall rating is 5 on 5 for this phone
Excellent phone, that served me for around 5 years. Tried to use the phone 'till it would not work anymore. In the end it wore me out instead...Today i am swapping it for a Asus Zenfone 5.Hope i get atleast 1.5 years usage from it.

Excellent and durable phone, that served me for 3.5 years. With a bit quicker processor and newer Android I'd be still using it.
