It's takes a long time to come on after pushing the side button.it also comes on for a second then clicks right back off. There's about a 20 second pause before lighting up, God forbid I'm in need of assistance and need to call 911. Other than that it's been an ok phone, however not good incase of an emergency, Bc you wait atleast 20 seconds before it even lifts up after pushing the button.
I have this phone for 3 months. Dont NEVER EVER buy this phone. Before it I had a chinese brand phone, Far better than it,
There are better ways to waste your money rather than spending money on AVANT. especially on internet it is horrible
I bought this phone brand new. since ever I bought it I was unable to make use of the phone . the network was locked. and it cannot detect my Sim card... I have tried using device unlock to unlock the network permanently, but not working telling me the phone I connect the WiFi network from, is not compatible with my device, and it request a working data connection. so is there no other method on how I could unlock the phone without contacting the customer care because I bought from another country. so please tell me what to do

Also I just got an avant and haven't had any real issues I couldn't fix on my own I'm with t-mobile.
I bought this phone from Costco less than three months ago. I agree with all the other reviews of this phone I just read because it happened to me one time or another. Besides those, just yesterday, the screen has started to mess up. It cannot be put to the original settings and colors are all changed. I cannot even recognize my stored pictures even watch videos. I am taking it back to T. mobile first before to Costco.

Runnn from this phone, it really sucks! After barely a month, the internet crashes frequently, and it beeps/chimes during calls for no apparent reason (no new texts, emails, or calls).
People complain about not being able to hear me, it drops the calls with excellent signal strength while talking to someone on their landline.
OH so i been seeing a lot of comments about not being able to hear, well it is because there is plastic over the mic and you need to remove it, its hard to see, also i see a lot of comments with people saying that can not get there phone to work correctly, but most of the issues are in the settings which can be changed, such as the screen rotation, or spell check and others stuff. so mess with your phone and settings and learn your phone, and you will find that most issues are with the user. Other than that, this phone is good for the price, it's no I-Phone or Samsung G 5, but will do the job and its a good phone for someone that is just starting out with a smart or someone that is not a big time user.
so did you take off the plastic around the mic, its hard to see, and many phones have this, and many people complain about not being able to hear you, well its because there is plastic there. Iphone and Samsung both have this

I've had the Samsung Galaxy Avant for 6 months now and I chose it over the IPHONE 5s and let me tell you, boy am I happy with this phone.First off, apple sucks. This phone is just amazing. You should get it
Great phone for light use. In terms of processing, it can be slow and programs can exit themselves. Freezes a lot, and I've only had it a few months.

I bought SAMSUNG AVANT two weeks ago and everyone complains that they cannot hear me. It has to be something with the phone and not the towers, since my husband has no issues with his phone (Nokia). Even more, when I call my parents, many times I have to switch to my husband's phone and they tell me that there is a great difference between how they can hear me between the two phones. Does anyone know what is the issue or has the same problem??
my mom bought this phone and it was really good its just that my little sisters keep messing with it and now when my mom is talking to some one after a few moments it starts ringing again but i think its fixed im not sure it this had happend to other people and im either going to get this phone or the l70 witch one would you get?
