I've been using this the last three years. For phone calls and light texting, it's fine. The keyboard is small, if you have large or callused fingers you're going to need a stylus. For browsing, it's very slow. 2GB of RAM crawls along with Facebook, forget about loading any videos. The photos and video camera works fine, not fantastic, but good enuf. Cheap phone, does the job. If you want to do a lot of browsing better get something with more RAM
used this phone for a couple years. It is a low cost phone that is good for texting and talking and maybe using wifi once in a while. If you want a phone to use a lot of data on then get a data package and your carrier will set up with the phone of the month on a data plan and a Contract if your not into that then. a newer version of this phone will do. I say a newer version because this phone was low end when introduced. At this point in time you can get a S2, a HTC amaze or iphone 4 for the same price and any of these phones will do more than Just txt and talk.
BtownD, 05 Oct 2015I bought this phone in 2012 for $100 and it came with a free sim card ($20) as well as $10 air... moreIf you payed $100 you were overpaying this wasn't worth more than $75 new. Max.
paddy, 29 Aug 2015I new a new Samsung discover sgh 5730 m cell phoneI can factory reset mine and you can have it for under $50. I hate mine and if I "lose" it I might get a new one.
I bought this phone in 2012 for $100 and it came with a free sim card ($20) as well as $10 airtime to get you started. It was my first Android phone, and is a decent basic phone. The screen is very low-res with horrid colours as its only 256K colours versus 16M for most smartphones. The battery is crap. The adreno 200 and 800mhz cortex A5 are very weak, so gaming won't work unless playing low quality games. All in all, its a good first phone to give a kid or an older person who doesn't need bells and whistles. But its truly a brick.
oliversmomrn, 01 May 2015How do I change the SIM card on this phone? You have to take the battery out of the back and the SIM card is behind it. Just pull the back case off, it won't break.
I love this phone! I have had it for over and year and it works really well and glitches every once and a while but it a great phone with a camera that works if you just want to capture a few special moments :) There are some reviews out there that say this isn't the best phone but for me it's great and I use it a lot for social media and games.
i had samsung galaxy discovery of model sgh-s730m and was stolen by somebody. i heard that there is a possibility to get it back through google. is it possible for google to indicate which sim number is inserted and be used in this mobile? if possible my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Oliversmomrn, 01 May 2015Does anyone know how to change the SIM card on this phone? It is underneath the battery, just like on any other phone, lol.
princess ㇬, 31 Jul 2014Its slow and I always have "low storage" it doesn't even have a camera. I seriously ... moreif you wanted a front camera then buy one that has it but the phone shows you that it dont have one so y would u expect more than what the phone brings lol stupid
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2014This is easily the worst and slowest phone I've ever used. Giving it a rating at 0/5 stars is ... morethe speed on the browser of the phone is based on ure signal or wireless speed dont blame the phone for your wifi connection or signal and fyi a mobiles internet is always slow no matter the phone model and if your carrier has 2G only in your area well ofcourse it will be slow.... stupid people
Pierson Jnr, 23 Mar 2015Can you please help me with how to take a screen shot??? looks like I have exhausted all means... moreto take a screenshot you press the power on button and the volume down button at the same time, holding them down till it makes a very loud snap and youll see the screenshot being shrunk - there is an odd delay before it registers the frame you want so if you are working with a video then you need to start pressing the buttons about 2 seconds before the frame you want
