I have been using this phone for over 3 years now, it is my first smartphone, and overall I'm really happy with it. Right now I am looking for a new phone because sometimes when I am talking to someone, the other person goes all mute, I can't hear them and I have to hang up and call them again. Also, there are some charging problems, but they might be connected to the charger, not the phone itself.
I can praise this phone for its endurance: once I was running, the phone fell out of my pocket and slided on a stone sidewalk for about 5 metres. I thought the display would be broken for sure, but it only had some minor scratches on the plastic housing! (as opposed to the much fancier, but also much more sensitive smartphones whose displays would break instantly).
So overall, I think this is a great "first smartphone" - easy to use and enduring.
The world's worst cellphone ... samsung galaxy pocket, GT-S5301
My wife and I have had one each for two years and had the same troubles with both phones.
Battery life is only hours so they live on the chargers, not in our pockets and we have keep the screen very dim and switch off WiFi most of the time.
They regularly 'lock up' and only fix is to remove the battery and restart.
We had ROM upgrades which reduced the problems from days to weeks.
For no reason the battery will start to get extremely hot and very flat; fix is to pull it out again and leave it on the charger overnight.
Phone will look like it is working but has stalled ... so take out the battery and restart yet again and the sms's flood in. Our two year contract is up and I can't recommend a Samsung!
itzzz all about with hanging problems!! Heating little! To minimise it remove the high apps performing in it bcoz it only has 512 MB RAM..SOOOOO POOR!!!!!!!
