Don't bother

 

Samsung should be ashamed of this rotten phone. Don't buy it, it's junk.

Nothing

It's slow, sometimes doesn't work and I can't wait to take a hammer to it when I buy an iPhone. No more Samsung

DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE

 

I spent $100 on this phone just under a year ago. It started behaving strangely about three months after that. I will NOT buy another Samsung again.

It's slim

It's slow, unresponsive, frustrating and should be thrown against the wall

Worst phone ever

 

When the phone goes to stand by it won't ring to let you know you a call or signel you have a text most of the time. Even with the phone in stand by if it's in your pocket it will call someone on your contact list. Biggest waste of money

learning how to use

 

I find the phone to be just great but I am still learning all the features. I use the online manual for such times and that is really helpful. I even showed my friend something that she hadn't done.
