I've had it for over 3 years, its a pretty decent phone, very good for it's price range.

The camera is not too great and the GPS always takes some time to fix, even after some tweaking. the gps is very precise though (I'm a geocacher, usually we go in groups and I can tell you I've never seen one more precise than this).

The battery, I seriously don't understand why everyone is complaining. Beats most phones out there.
When it was new it lasted for over a week, now it lasts about 3-4 Days with average use.
The least time it lasted was about 12hours during a 600 miles trip, among a few average calls, I was using GPS and 3G all day, and I really mean ALL DAY!

The GPU is bad, this phone can't handle heavy games but since I mostly use GBA emulators its ok.

Overall its a good phone, if it were lost and I found one for cheap enough I would definately buy it, even after 4 years of it being launched.

Also, I should add, It was pretty easy to root and unlock, and it handles custom roms pretty well, also overclocks to about twice it's default clock (1,2Ghz), if you dare to.

This smartphone is good since it is one of the earliest smartphone of samsung. Yes there are demerits of this phone it hangs frequently, its memory. Even though its camera is good. This is not bad.

This phone is three years old with a single core processor. So, it will always be too slow to run the latest versions of firmware or software - designed for two or more cores. Don't believe tales of rooting giving fast speeds, overclocking - will eventually wreck it, and installing Ice Cream Sandwich. It will do the things a good phone would do three years ago, and that's all.

If all you need is a phone, acceptable camera, GPS, radio, wireless etc. this will do it. Battery life is as good as you make it using software utilities. I can make mine last 10 days by not using internet or wireless. It is also a much stronger phone than the current crop and better made, although thicker than more recent offerings. I work outside most of the time and am very active - no problem with this baby. I'll be very sorry when it breaks!

I'm having this mobile. This mobile support ordinary SIM but not mini. Internal memory will be exhausted to 256MB after upgrading to FROYO.
