Anonymous, 03 Dec 2013blaze is much better than light !!!! Highly disagree about the blaze. I have it now and it lags so much. Freezes up very frequently and it's slow reacting when you have more than 2 apps open.
YO, 12 Dec 2013Samsung Galaxy Light SGH-T399 will do update android 4.4 kit kat ?????Only Samsung can answer that unfortunately....
LindaDnl, 11 Dec 2013Cases for this phone are limited but available now.ebay has the lowest prices on them, but Amazon has a few as well. You just have to search for "SGH-T399" instead of Galaxy Light, and they pop up.
This is my review of the new Samsung Galaxy Light 4G LTE off contract phone. This is currently for T-Mobile only, but I believe it could be unlocked for use on other GSM carriers.
Getting to the specs, this is not at all what you would expect to get for a paltry $149.00(Home Shopping Network's price). It's packing an almost identical chipset to the one used in a Galaxy S3...no kidding. It's a Quad Core Cortex A7 1.4GHz processor with a multi core Mali 400 GPU, very, very nice. The screen is a 4" standard 800x480 resolution screen, but it is a good one. The color saturation is great, nothing is washed out or grainy, and pics and movies look great on it. What could have been a bad thing didn't turn out that bad after all. Samsung went the extra yard and sourced a high quality screen even if it isn't an HD one, good on them for doing that. The cameras are a 5 mp auto focus one on the back complete with a flash, and the front one is a 0.3mp VGA unit. Both work fine for the price paid...actually the rear facing one is pretty good. All of the pics I took with it have been good, with decent colors and good focus in all of them. Again, Samsung sourced a decent piece of kit for this phone while keeping the price really low. It also has a built in GPS, Bluetooth, NFC and the best version of TouchWiz I've ever used, it's smooth and pretty unobtrusive which is a huge improvement over older versions. Also of note is the phone ships with 50GB of free Dropbox cloud storage for two years, a nice value added option.
All told, the Galaxy Light is anything but, it's a much better phone than it has a right to be for the very low price asked for it. Check it out over on HSN for a great deal(it even has a Flex Pay option, not bad at all), or over on T-Mobile's site. Highly recommended!
Just got from HSN. It is a good price. You only pay 150 bucks, so should not expect to get a phone which can compete with iphone. I do not play 3d game on cell phone, so basically no lag for most of the apps.
RickRick, 06 Dec 2013Just compare the specs. Does the blaze have Quad core? LTE? NFC? 8Gb storage? 1Gb of Ram? OK I... moreI just bought it for $150 at HSN.com
Specs are impressive, lets see how it works out
Cases are hard to find - but the there are a bunch that are kind of hidden at Amazon... Search for B00GXG8TP8 and you will get a page with a dozen plus options under $10.
Anonymous, 03 Dec 2013blaze is much better than light !!!! Just compare the specs. Does the blaze have Quad core? LTE? NFC? 8Gb storage? 1Gb of Ram? OK I forgot how much ram the blaze had but overall the galaxy light is a legit option.
I have used the phone for a few days now, and I'm very impressed. It looks like a super mini S4 in person. The LTE speeds are very fast. The quad core is very fast. The galaxy light is a huge improvement over the blaze 4G most specific the 8gb storage over the blaze's 4gb.
If I had any complaints at this time it would be the camera. the autofocus is very slow especially in low light conditions also the resolution is a bit low. it could be a little bit bigger screen 4 inches its really small for me but for somebody with small hands it could be a dream come true. Download speeds via LTE 30Mbs down 5Mbs up.
I also noticed that the Wi-Fi was much faster than other phones or tablets in the house. I mean like Netflix click on movie and it's loaded and playing within a few seconds fast. It has exceeded my expectations so far.
One last thing is that I'm on the 30 dollar 5Gb 100 minute T-Mobile prepaid plan so I've been using the full version of groove ip voip app and its been a flawless experience. I feel like the
$149.99 hsn offer is one of the best offers for a tmobike device this fall.
Anonymous, 28 Nov 2013Does anybody know what phone cases are compatible with the Galaxy Light?t399 case on eBay. not the best cases but hopefully you will find something
jojo, 16 Nov 2013Bought 4 of them yesterday for my family taking 4 back today to get something else keyboard is... moreI myself am farsighted and have a hard time seeing keyboards and typing. But that shouldn't be an issue.. just hit the microphone and talk. It don't get any easier than that. I never type.. always use voice command. And it never lets me down. Just speak clearly.
