I have this phone more the five! (5) years, and besides i changed the battery last year, i dont have a problem with it at all.
The build quality is very good, i dropped the phone in several time, even from 2 meters hight to a tile surface...yes the battery felt out, but besides that nothing happened.
This device have problem when i browsing on the internet, because the pre-installed browser is s**t, and doesnt have a lots of RAM.
And well, the camera is mediocre (I mean not in 2016, it 2011, when i bought).

i dont know when it is going to upgrade to froyo but when it will upgraded to froyo this phone will still miss the flash.
here is quick review
1. the phone is have good capacitive touch screen and very responsive but
display resolution is too poor for reading and all.
2. it has 667 mhz processor which is also good but it lacks of when start numbers of applications.
3. the touchwiz interface is best at the time you can have in phone. specially the swype to call on numbers it's feel like your having a smartphone,
4. it has good audio and video quality with speaker is and also if you switch to then the music rocks.
5. internet browsing is good on the phone but when you will open several pages it automatically close.. i dont know why?
6. the screen is not scrach resistance it always get scratches on it and back side plastic is also not good very sweaty,
7. battery is not working as mentioned in spectifications. it always get down if you are daily internet user then you have to charge it 1 or 2 times in a day.
8. 3g is there but no secondary camera.
9. and the biggest and biggest problem you will have the inbuild memory... samsung says in their commerical 80,000 applications with android market but they forgot they are on android 2.1 installing apps very short always you have to something unistall to install a new app and dont even think about to install games on the phone you cannot play 3d games
