Without a doubt, the best entry level mobile phone on the market. Well priced, a solid features list and an excellent design make the D520 look and feel like a much more expensive handset.

Great phone so far


So far, this phone has been a very welcome relief from my RAZR that it replaced. The menus are very responsive and intuitive. Battery life is good, and the size of the phone is just about perfect for me

Signal strength isn't QUITE as good as it was with my RAZR, but is equal or better to other Samsung phones I've owned. The charger that came with the phone does not fit with adapter provided. In other words, you will have to go out and purchase one
