I've had this phone since December last year. here are my views about it
1.the rear camera is actually good for a 5mp. especially in good lighting conditions. the pictures get a bit dull under low light but not a deal breaker.still good. The flash is rather powerful and is a good flashlight during a blackout video is good again under good lighting especially in the daytime but videos shot in low light environments are nothing to write home about. I wont go into the VGA front camera for obvious reasons.
2. The display is Decent. bright and has good viewing angles. colours are vivid. it also doesnt scratch easily. 233ppi doesnt give world class viewing experience but is good enough. the pixels can only be seen from upclose. text readability is decent.
3. performance is decent keeping in mind its specs. it isnt lightning fast but good enough. a few lags here and there will be expected if you demand too much of it running apps but generally a smooth experience.
4.build quality is good.the matte finish on the white version means there are no ugly fingeprint smudges.
5. call quality is good. the enhanced volume option during a call is even better meaning you dont struggle hearing the other party during a call.
6. the touchwiz media player is simple and good looking with an option of equaliser
7. the phone is relatively small.it fits comfortably in the hand but can be a bit slippery without a case.
8. browsing experience is good.pages load quickly and the pinch to zoom feature works smoothly esp with the touchwiz browser.
1.poor battery life. only 4-5 hours of heavy use
2. the display is abit on the smaller side at 4".
3 . mediocre vga front camera . useful only for video calling.
4. low ROM at only 4GB with only 1.9GB available to the user. this is remedied by provision of a micro sd card slot. Apps can be moved to the mem card but only partially and not all the apps.
a generally decent phone.average performance. for a samsung loyalist under a budget I would recommend it. if not, there are better offerings from other brands for the same price.
