Excellent phone, but durability is a big issue.

The phone did a really great job when I had it. For my needs, this phone is very good. Unfortunately, I dropped it on a bare floor on its screen from a height of 3 feet. The glass was cracked, but it was still completely working. But it was unusable as the glass could easily scratch your hands and with a light touch it can touch the LCD display. It was not worth it to get it repaired as I will pay half its price. I beg every owner to get this phone a good case.

Excellent low-entry mid-range smartphone.

I got it few months ago at a great discount, and it's my first smartphone. Everything's good for a device of this price range, the only things that I dislike are no autofocus and flash on camera, and narrow screen viewing angle. The camera itself works very well outside in the daylight, and although it lacks flash, it has one of the better "night modes" I've seen. Build quality is excellent, a common thing for Samsung phones. The battery works well, but it would be nice if it lasted a bit longer. The operating system is great most of the time, with only occasional hangs and lags in some apps. Samsung included this phone in its famous "great update list", so it could receive Jelly Bean early in 2013 - and if this really happens, the already excellent low-entry mid-range smartphone could become even better.Build quality 9/10Reception 8/10Call quality 9/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 8/10Camera 7/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 8/10Display 7/10Battery 7/10

Pretty cool phone

Decent smartphone. Touch screen responsive. Wifi fast. Gps with google map with installed text to speech working outstanding. Setup really easy. The keyboard is a little difficult to use -- For the price, features very good deal. The Samsung 5830 probably will be better, but I am happy with this phone's feature and especially price.
