It also reminds me of appointments instead of having to check my S planner everyday. What is the difference from a normal calendar?

I think its a great phone as a secondary device only used for personal moments (selfies,etc),enjoy the great 13mp Camera, pristine quality.
not so much of a bad phone.the battery is strong and the graphics are great,never seen anything like that before. But the truth is i think they over exaggerated on the specifications,why? cos the screen is not as strong as its supposed to be,it ain't water resistant and so it falls into water and the phone is done,dead and gone.too bad and it heats too.
I am thinking about switching from my iPhone 4s to a Samsung but I don't know which one is should get?
I bought this phone about a week ago. I am quite disappointed firstly because the resolution is low and secondly and more important for me, the phone has no notification led. How is possible for a smartphone nowadays not to have a notification led? If I knew I wouldn't buy this phone.
