Mine was ok out the box. Pretty good phone for the mere 100 bucks I paid for it as a backup phone. Now with rooting and tuning, it's a right nice little phone. People unhappy with it should make it there own(root it) and adjust it to suit their needs. I've looked around and for the price, you'd be hardpressed to find more of a phone.
I thought I could use it with at&t but it turns out to be impossible. Bought it from a friend for only $75 now I cant even sell it for $50 it is in perfect condition. Nobody wants it. If anyone is thinking of purchasing one I will sell mine for $50.
The only problem i've had with this phone is my photo files corrupting. I don't know why.
gkc, 21 Sep 2015You know for a hundred and fifty bucks I have nothing to bitch about! Every thing about the ph... moreI agree, u get what u pay for, so dont expect it to be top of the line, dont bitch if wont perform like a $600. Devic., HOWEVER, You do have a reason to bitch if the $150 + NEW Samsung Avant, you just bought, oh, thats after finding out the LG you got from same store & paid off mos early,has depreciated by 99%,in less than 5 mos. And the NEW is actually a "Certified" refurbished pre-owned, Device. It clearly states it on thier own site when I put in the model, seriel ect #'s. It also started having problems from day 1. I told them, the acted like I was to stupid to breath,said thst the cetified preowned was a glitch, ignore it. Then immediately changed it in the system, promised me a NEW one. NOPE. SO, I'VE BEEN TOLD "I'll nvr get new." And, while I try to transfer all my stuff, there threaten to chrgs me $450.... $for a used device not worth the $150-$75 already paid. How do they justify that price?

CC, 14 Sep 2015when I'm on a call and my phone screen is not locked my face is constantly pressing buttons. T... moreOh and the camera sucks too, my pictures are not as clear. I've had flip phones that were more clear
when I'm on a call and my phone screen is not locked my face is constantly pressing buttons. There will be times when I call someone and then my phone will call them while i'm on the phone with them still, putting the person on hold and then sending them another call. When I lock the phone screen the call is muted. Its extremely frustrating and I never had this problem with any other phones. It freaks out and I wouldn't mind chucking it against the wall.
I was given this phone by a friend because the little copper connectors for the Sim card is missing one of them so the phone is not able to be hooked up. All I use it for is for the WiFi and it works great. So I'm not sure what other people's issues are but I have a box of kleenex for you.
I really like phone but it likes to switch to different screens when im doing things for example ill be texting and it will randomly go to the internet and have somethins like click this and win something. or it will go to the play store and ask me to download an app.... any one have tis problem or know what i can do to fix it? please let me know!
I just got my Samsung galaxy Avant and my parents say its not a good phone but I think its okay but I'm not sure if it will be okay in the future when I use it reading all these opinions that all these people have wrote. So...... please help me!!!!!:(
got this back in april from a metro pcs store w/ rebates and such was only 88 bucks -the phone im sure is fine on ANOTHER carier but on metro it sux-i had a lg optimus that had way better signal strength where i live-will go back to lg round x mass prolly
I have had this phone for over a year now. It does what I need it to do. Calls, texts, internet, Facebook. No problems whatsoever. Great for GPS navigating in unfamiliar territory. And it didn't cost $600. Granted, I am not glued to my phone 24/7. I am happy with it.
I am not part if samsung first off,
I don't know why people call this a laggy glitchy phone I have no problem with it(I use t mobile by the way). The camera could be better but I quite like this phone
Moe, 20 Aug 2015This just started happneing to me 2 days ago as wellHappens to me all the time. Never had that problem with out phone. Worse phone I've ever had. Shuts off by itself and screen turns black. I do not have the money to replace it.
This phone is ok, if you're using it for calls and texting. As soon as you put a few apps on it, it bogs down drastically! My husband doesn't have any issues with his, but he doesn't do anything on it but calls and texts. I have facebook, ebay and etsy accounts and this phone can't handle it. I just upgraded to a G3, hoping to have better luck.

The go... moreIf you are saving your photos on a Micro SD card and not on the phone, it can be caused by a low quality memory card, if you're saving your pics on the phone memory, maybe you have used too much memory, I had the same situation, it was due to a bad Micro SD card that i bought on Ebay.
