I've had this phone now since 2008 or 2009, so over 5 years, and the battery is still going strong. If I make phone calls / txts / some light browsing, then it might last 3 days, otherwise on idle it still lasts about 1 week! :)
I've dropped it a few times, but not really noticeable as the black hard rubberish-like substance has protected it mostly. Otherwise, the middle rocker-key has come off by itself once, and then super-glued back on :)
The other massive down-side is the really rubbish microphone, so people can't hear unless you speak up, or in a closed environment, or put your hand near microphone to drown-out the external sounds. Another massive downside is that despite the large storage, it has a fixed storage for messages, so it only holds about 210 sms messages in inbox, and 200 sms messages in sent items - so pretty stupid thinking from samsung.
Another huge downside is the rubbish cpu, so even browsing menu's is very slow, so web browsing using Opera mini or the rubbish Netfront browser requires a lot of patience!
The only reason I don't replace it is because Android is spyware, iPhone's are too expensive and too distracting, so no other choice. And the newer feature phones from Nokia have terrible display quality (low colour and ppi), and terrible camera, and Firefox OS is too primitive and hard to get in the west, and Symbian is dead and it has massive memory leak issues, so after 2 years the phone will just die by itself.
So I guess I'm stuck with this phone for several more years to come...

I got this phone in 2008 but luckly switch on this phone in 2012 its amazing. request to samsung please launch next version in touch screen.
For it's size and the time it was released this phone is truly amazing. Excellent. I think samsung should consider making a new version of this phone
I love this phone! I have this for like 3 years now, and except for a few scratches and where the paint has peeled off, and the shorter battery life, it still keeps going.
It also doubles a reliable 3G modem when I couldn't pickup a WiFi signal on my laptop. If there's one thing I could change I wish it could use both Bluetooth and Modem function as the same time, otherwise it's one heck of a phone.
When I use this as a modem and it's been at it for a few hours, it would get really hot and would sometimes cause it to hang and reboot. The workaround is to make sure you keep it cool
