I just bought this phone yesterday and I hate it... I don't like the fact that you are stuck with their stupid ringtones for notifications (text messages) and now my notification ringtone is stuck on one ringtone it won't let me change it up.. I am telling people that I know that are interested in getting a new cell phone not to buy this one... and Samsung should take this phone off the market...its plain and simple garbage....

The samsung galaxy Q freezes.
The Goods:
The flash on the camera is awesome. The quality of pictures is OK, not stellar, but ok.
The interface is quite easy to follow.But you might have to search deeper to find files.
I find that the Samsung Kies (which is similar to the Nokia Suite)doesn't work the way it should. You have to find a way around it.
The Bads:
And after the freeze spell, it can decide to come back on or go off. Sometimes when you are charging the phone it freezes and goes of. When you drop the phone it disintegrates immediately it hits the floor.

Have the phone for 13 months -- minor annoyances until this week when the screen touch stopped working. No support from phone carrier, not much help from Samsung.
Service contracts not the way to go when phones have limited life span! Not happy and do not recommend this Samsung product (and I will likely never purchase another Samsung product in the future).

I have this phone and it glitches all the time. When I first opened it out of its box and turned it on it glitched instantly. I'm changing this phone ASAP

I got this phone a couple of months ago. Since it's my first cell phone, I don't really have any to compare it to, but there are a few basic things that I don't like about it... The battery life sucks, sometimes the phone will ring and I won't be able to answer it b/c the friggin' touch screen won't work and the sound is too low for my liking; if your'e on the bus, forget it!

Cons:
Very poor battery (I need to charge it every day. I wouldn't trust it as an emergency phone.
Low earpiece volume (even at max. setting). If you have hearing problems, forget it.
Dialpad doesn't come up when you need it during a call
Low memory (internal)
Sometimes not responsive to touch or slow
Weak vibration
Pros:
Wifi

Bottom line: ok for light use but there are better phones out there at the same price.

Once the screen is unlocked, there is a tiny little number at the very top of the screen, why is it there and how do I get rid of it? I have seen it change from 1 to 2 but don't know what it is for.

Is NOT worth buying this phone, its internal memory is terribly low. It says 180MB available but once like 60MB is installed you always get the annoying low phone storage memory notification and you can't even receive text messages! You get the notifying sound that you got a text but this junk doesnt let you receive it. I'm getting it swapped tomorrow because this model is not worth being considered a smart phone.
