For the price, it's not bad. But it doesn't have a front facing LED notification light! The only way to see if you have any messages of missed calls is to turn on the screen. Luxury complaint for sure, but it is majorly inconvenient! So, incredibly majorly inconvenient. To the point where I don't even take my phone places with me.

Had problem one time. Phone wouldn't turn on. Reinstalled Battery and is ok. Samsung is a good Product.
Also use Note 4
hard to understand the caller or called. Looses connection easy, for me; I made a $100 mistake. Battery is dead in 6 calls of any length. If you are in motion, expect to be disconnected.
Samsung Galaxy Light SGH-T399 8GB review
This phone has a HORRIBLE battery.
And yeah .. I am very well informed how battery can be saved & I have tried ONE & ALL possible remedies. Still I have to charge it every day & battery drains out without even talking or using internet.
I have downloaded only 4 apps on it & have disabled automatic updates, dont use gps, / blutooth, / or ant thing that would consume power. have shut down mobile data, use juice defender app in aggressive mode, keep brightness to minimum level. EVEN THEN THIS MONSTER DRAINS OUT BATTERY IN stand by mode!!
rest all is great about this phone :)
samsung galaxy light is wonderfull mobile. I m using this phonem I have no any complain from this mobile. this mobile is so pretty and I like this most. I love samsung galaxy light

Does it display how full it thinks the battery is if you tap the power button just once. I have a different phone, but it displayed 0% battery fullness, but when I held the power button to turn it on, it acted like your description.
my phone does not want to turn on, i dont know what happend it was charging and now it turns to the galaxy logo and then it turns off again.
Anonymous, 04 Apr 2015Yup....you sound like a cronic nag. Like I mentioned earlier... It's an easy solution (LTE on both phones not working)... Put your house up for sale (or for renters - break your lease) and relocate to a better location. Be sure to bring your Android devices and check that the signal strength is 4G LTE... otherwise don't sign that lease agreement. See... easy fix! Tada!
Aman, 04 Apr 2015Have 2 and Lte doesn't work on either LTE on BOTH doesn't work...? Humpfh... That's odd. Process of elimination... not likely that both handsets LTE not working. To resolve... find another house to live that has stronger network signal. It's your location not your devices.

It just means you are locked out of the phone and you need a PUK code. To resolve... Call Customer Care and they will give you the PUK code.
rubydomingo40033, 02 Mar 2015exactly you get what you pay for some peeps just don't knowYou get what you pay for, but it was $249 2 years ago. By your logic, the features changed because the price is now lower.
