I have had this model of phone for 2 years now. when I first got the phone it was great I would always drop it and it would never crack but march 2015 the screen started to go haywire and have lines up and down the screen I had tried everything to fix it restarting it, replacing the screen yet it still kept the lines going up and down the screen ... I had insurance so I took it into team mobile and they replaced it and the replacement phone has been fine up until now the completely new phone that I got in 2015 stared to get lines like the one I had before ...I highly don't recommend this phone unless you need a temporary phone for no more than a year.

SparkelStar, 02 Jun 2016I love my Samsung Avant but lately it seems to whistle or chirp announcing "Notifications" way... moreI have had the Avant for a while now - I can't get it to stop vibrating. It does it constantly now and I turned everything off. All I want to do is have it notify me of my texts and emails. Frustrating!!!
JueJue, 04 Jun 2016My daughter bought me my Avant 2 years ago... now it's kinda slowing down... I LOVE MY PHONE..... moreHave you tried loading and using a "clean-up" app? I use Avast, I found it at the Google play store. I have not experienced any more slowing except when it's time to run the app again. Avast offers several different phone helpers and I have found the company to be trustworthy. I hope this helps you.

Anonymous, 22 Apr 2016I got my Samsung Galaxy Avant about a year and a half ago, and have had an ongoing problem eve... moreThe phone get to hot I have to switch left and right ear position to relief from discomfort in my ears, I spend about $100 dollar twice to fix cracked mirror it can easily break. very poor quality, I don't trust t- mobile phone offer anymore.
I got my Samsung Galaxy Avant about a year and a half ago, and have had an ongoing problem ever since purchase. I talked to T-Mobile and they replaced it. I used the same battery. The replacement phone started having the same problem within a couple of weeks. The problem is it shuts down and restarts on its own. Obviously this causes dropped calls and interrupted operations of all sorts. The other issue is it gets very, very hot. Sometimes it happens when it is plugged in for charging. Other times, it will be as I'm talking or texting or playing a game. Does anyone know what causes these two issues? My husband has the same phone, so we switched batteries to see if it was a battery issue, and his had not had any problems at all. Mine continues to have these two problems.
Switched to T-mobile and bought this phone on clearance ($40) just to try out their cell service. That was over a year ago. I'm fairly impressed with the little thing. 16GB of storage and 1.5GB RAM is very generous for a budget phone. and It's pretty darn fast; even bloated, memory hog apps like Facebook open in less than 4 seconds. It had some hang-ups and glitches at first, but the latest revision of KitKat is absolutely perfect on this phone. Smooth as silk.
The display is a cheaper TFT display, and there is no auto brightness. Also, the camera. It gets the job done, but at 5 MP, it's nowhere near the caliber of an iPhone 6S or Galaxy S7, but that's expected in a budget phone.
It's got a nice rubberized back that slides into your pocket well, and it isn't gigantic so it's fully operable with one hand like my old iPhone was.
One other thing though, if you're tap-texting, if you go too fast it doesn't seem to work at all. Typing on an iPhone I can type as fast as I want and it seems to work fine. This one, I end up with nothing but typos. Guessing the touchscreen on this little guy is budget-grade, but swiping works fine.
I totally disagree with all of these comments . You need to read the phone menu in other to know how to used it. I CAN MAKE A 3 WAY CALL AND DO ALL OF THESE THINGS YOU GUYS ARE NOT ABLE TO DO WITH THE SAME PHONE. So pleas read the phone menu before posting negative comments about it, Thanks.
Bad I can't make a 3 ways call and that can be done by any cheaper phone
