I honestly am an apple fan but this phone is ok i guess. Its good for anyone on a budget who needs a phone. Not a person who likes to take professional hd pictures..just not the quality your looking for

This phone has the easiest root I've ever done. 2 downloads and a single click. It will solve any and all bloat/memory/speed problems using Titanium Backup's freeze option, and Greenify's hibernate.

Used this for the past four months. Mostly used just for phone and for email and internet browsing. Works well enough for that, and not having to pay the price for extra features is great. Comes with plenty of bloatware that is poor, I de-activated or removed as mush as I could. I've noticed things getting slower over time, that could be T mobile's unreliable service, or I may have to do some more cache upkeeping. Considering backing up and factory resetting. Looking forward to KitKat update. Hope the phone lasts long term because I am happy with it.

Have had and been using phone for a month now. It's a decent phone. That's about it. It reboots itself often and if you run more than 2 or 3 apps at once the phone will noticeably slow down and sometimes crash. Sluggish, can't keep up with me.

It has a lot to offer, similar to it's big brother (feature-wise). However, If you have the money to piss away, and prefer a phablet, Galaxy Mega, Note 3, or just a big phone, such as the Galaxy S4, or S5, and don't mind the bulky phones, then this phone's not for you. It can be bought for as little as $126.00, shipped to your door now. Walmart has this phone in the Univision packaging, for $169.99 now. A T-Mobile sim card can be purchased at Walgreens for only $10.00, plus tax. A heavy duty case with belt clip & screen protector can be found cheap on Amazon.com.

Have used this phone for several weeks now and I feel all the positive reviews must be coming from either Samsung employees or stock holders or T-mobile employees. Anybody spending the kind of money that a T-mobile data plan requires isn't going to be very happy with this little plastic turd

I have been using it for past six months. Great phone in its price category. I used S2 and HTC mytouch4gSlide before and I must say that Its faster then both. Battery is much much better. I am satisfied with the cameras and the good news is Samsung has added it in list of devices which will get KitKat Update.

I think this is a good phone but the thing to set up your wallpaper gives you a little bit of room.

But the rest of what you get is worth living without it for me. But it's a shame. The LG Optiomus F3 does not have radio either, but the cheap T-Mobile Prism II does... go figure

This phone is alright, but be aware that you really do get what you pay for. The specs on paper make it seem like a very good phone, but too bad, as of right now on Android 4.2.2, it's decent at best. The TouchWiz interface Samsung puts on all of their phones is alright, but I'd ditch it for another launcher like NovaLauncher. The front facing camera is terrible. It's grainy most of the time and the pictures are just generally dark even is really good lighting. The back camera is fine, though. Decent outside, but not so hot indoors.
Once past that, the phone, like I said, is decent. You can pretty much run any normal app on it. Gaming is a bit minimal and I wouldn't recommend playing any graphically intensive game on it.
The screen isn't an in an HD resolution (400 x 800) and the pixel density isn't as high as the high-end phones, but the screen still gets the job done. One of the best non-HD screens I've seen on a phone. Call quality is good, too. Not to forget, the phone comes with LTE, which is pretty good depending on where you are.
If you're looking for a basic smartphone and your money situation is a bit tight, I'd say go ahead. I recommend, though, giving it a try before you buy.

This phone in 2014 is perfect. Pocket friendly with all the features one would need. I bought 3 of these phones for members of the family and so far no issues.
