This phone is crap. Keeps freezing all the time, it's slow and useless. Don't waste your money.

I'm having the same issues as many others here. The apps stop working frequently and even when they do work, they're glitchy. The apps change position on the home screen all the time and reception is crap. Also, the GPS shows that I live in Louisiana but I live in northeast Georgia. Even calling my provider couldn't figure out why. In all the only thing this phone is good for is the occasional phone call. Rating it a zero would be a compliment.

This phone was the worst phone ever made. It was slow as hell. I would literally take about a minute and half to open any app. It would also make me miss phone calls. The battery life aND camera sucked. And forget about the alarm clock. It goes off a couple minutes after when it's supposed to.

I love this phone, great combo of affordability and functionality, can do most things other Galaxy phones can do, but at a fraction of the cost.

This is easily the worst and slowest phone I've ever used. Giving it a rating at 0/5 stars is too much for this pile of garbage. At the very best an app or page will load in about 3 minutes (don't be suprised if it takes up to 10.) I would rather have no phone at all than this. The only upside to this phone is it has some good apps but other than that it is so bad that it is almost funny.

As with any ion battery you should follow these steps.

1) When you first get your phone , don't turn it on.

2) Insert the battery , and with the phone off , plug in the charger.

3) fully charged , turn the phone on and use it as normal.

4) For this first time , run the battery down completely.

5) turn the phone off (no charge maybe its already off) again completely charge your phone.

6) once charged , turn on the phone and use as normal.

7) Each night attach your charger and charge with the phone on.

All the above trains the battery to not lose its charge. Once in awhile (perhaps each month or so) follow these steps as if the battery was new. I do this with every ion battery and have never had a problem. This phone included.

GPS requires line of sight view of a good chunk of the sky, so it can "see" the GPS satellites. If it can't see enough of them, then it won't work. Tall buildings, like you see in most downtowns, will block that view, making GPS less reliable, not more so.
GPS works best out in the open, in the middle of nowhere.

This is Samsung's unltimate fail!!! Every 70 sec almost every app stops responding; facebook, google chrome, google+, calander, clock, processing, & youtube. I then have to wait for each one to respond again to close it AGAIN (what good it does since 70 sec later it all stops responding AGAIN! The thing won't make a sound either unless headphones are plugged in.

This phone sucks! It is so glitchy and hard to work. My old slide phone was more reliable. it is hard to find what u r looking for to fix settings and u can't even find how to do stuff in the manual. This is also not coming from a 15 year old girl... We live off our phones. My friends and I have spent hours trying to work this piece of junk
