This is easily the worst and slowest phone I've ever used. Giving it a rating at 0/5 stars is too much for this pile of garbage. At the very best an app or page will load in about 3 minutes (don't be suprised if it takes up to 10.) I would rather have no phone at all than this. The only upside to this phone is it has some good apps but other than that it is so bad that it is almost funny.
As with any ion battery you should follow these steps.
1) When you first get your phone , don't turn it on.
2) Insert the battery , and with the phone off , plug in the charger.
3) fully charged , turn the phone on and use it as normal.
4) For this first time , run the battery down completely.
5) turn the phone off (no charge maybe its already off) again completely charge your phone.
6) once charged , turn on the phone and use as normal.
7) Each night attach your charger and charge with the phone on.
All the above trains the battery to not lose its charge. Once in awhile (perhaps each month or so) follow these steps as if the battery was new. I do this with every ion battery and have never had a problem. This phone included.
BadLuckwithPhones, 05 Feb 2014This is definitely the worst phone I have ever had. It has the worst battery life, GPS doesn't... moreGPS not working downtown isn't a surprise at all. GPS requires line of sight view of a good chunk of the sky, so it can "see" the GPS satellites. If it can't see enough of them, then it won't work. Tall buildings, like you see in most downtowns, will block that view, making GPS less reliable, not more so.
GPS works best out in the open, in the middle of nowhere.

Anonymous, 18 Apr 2014Nothing wrong with the phone Ihave had 6 of them Is that sarcasm?
This is Samsung's unltimate fail!!! Every 70 sec almost every app stops responding; facebook, google chrome, google+, calander, clock, processing, & youtube. I then have to wait for each one to respond again to close it AGAIN (what good it does since 70 sec later it all stops responding AGAIN! The thing won't make a sound either unless headphones are plugged in.
This phone sucks! It is so glitchy and hard to work. My old slide phone was more reliable. it is hard to find what u r looking for to fix settings and u can't even find how to do stuff in the manual. This is also not coming from a 15 year old girl... We live off our phones. My friends and I have spent hours trying to work this piece of junk
have had the phone since end of december 2013. Yes..battery life is much shorter than expected but am getting at least 24-26 hrs. Have had is freeze up a few times, but this happens on my home computer as well. This is my first "smart"phone and for $70cdn it suits the purpose I bought it for...texting coworkers/vendors and emergency situationss while I am on the road
This is the third samsumng discover and is a waste of money. Always frezes, conect and disconnect wifi. Drop phone calls, etc etc. Would never buy another dicover
ryot, 14 Feb 2014worst phone i've ever had so slow does whatever it wants dont waste your money on thisbetter than virgin mobile
overall an ok phone my only concern is the batteries for these phones died too fast. they should be made with longer staying power. I am charging this phone every day unlike my other phone. with all the new features and running apps these batteries should have been made to sustain these operations.
worst phone i've ever had
does whatever it wants
dont waste your money on this
cal, 29 Jan 2014Worst phone ever do not get it always freezes up wifi always connect without your permission t... more
I am very new using any type of cell phone but there seems no easy way to use this.
It is a waste of my children's money to buy it for me.
I need to get a very simple cell phone. Send me an idea with easy instructions.
