While this is by far super fast compared to my old HTC Aria, more memory and larger storage, the Aria is by far better to use as "a phone". For a smart device, the Samsung is great. Dropped calls is annoying, but the ability to use my apps and lightning speed helps overlook that!
I am an iPhone user but my son wanted this one which I believed rivaled mine. It is a great alternative. Samsung makes wonderful products that stand the test of time. I have Samsung electronics all over my home. The screen is big and vivid which I loved. I catch myself looking at CNN videos on his phone instead of my iPhone.
I have one of these now, but I have had quite a few minor problems with it. My screen will freeze when I'm trying to pick up a call, I will swipe to pick up a call three or four times and instead it reads it as 'declining' the call, I will try to turn on the screen to push buttons (like in a phone queue) during a call and instead my phone will flicker off after about a second - VERY annoying when you are trying to call the doctor's office and can't push '2' for appointments before the phone queue hangs up on you!!! Also I dislike how fast it uses up the battery. I can't seem to make it even a full day before mine is zapped. I do like the big screen however, and I like how many apps I can get on the phone (it has plenty of memory space) but I think next time around I'm just going to go for the iPhone.
I have been through a lot of phones over the years, but this is by far my favorite. It holds up to the abuse of my 2 year old and myself. It's very user friendly. I absolutely love that you have SO many options to personalize this phone. The screen is a great size, picture quality is good. the only thing I consistently have a problem with is when I use talk to text, it doesn't seem to register if I say more then a few words and it often picks the wrong word. If you are buying this product, you should also make sure to purchase screen protectors.
