Samsung Galaxy Light Review

 

With the Galaxy Light, Samsung is proving that it can scale its smartphone design and production costs. After hitting home runs with the Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4, and Galaxy Note 3, Samsung is bringing some of its most noticeable aesthetics and features...

Samsung Galaxy Light review:

 

If you're seeking an affordable Android phone on T-Mobile, the Samsung Galaxy Light is a serious choice. There's nothing flashy or even particularly interesting about a this 4-inch, entry-level smartphone that just looks like a slightly mutated Samsung...

The Samsung Galaxy Light gives you 4G LTE, a decent processor, and a pocket-friendly form for under $250. Call quality is strong, too.

Camera images seemed dull and soft on the Light's 5-megapixel shooter, and the 4-inch screen makes the virtual keyboard feel cramped.

Buy the Samsung Galaxy Light if you're looking for Android on a budget -- just be aware that you're trading price for performance.

Samsung Galaxy Light (T-Mobile)

 

Thanks to its LTE support and solid call quality, the Samsung Galaxy Light stands as a good value for entry-level Android smartphones on T-Mobile.

Solid feature set for the price. 4G LTE enabled. Great call quality

Mediocre battery life. Middling camera

Remember the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit, aka the Galaxy S III Mini? As if two versions weren't enough, Samsung and T-Mobile have teamed up for yet another iteration of this diminutive Android smartphone. The Galaxy Light ($216 direct) adds LTE and NFC, and...

Samsung offers a smaller handset for the phablet averse with the Galaxy Light, an Android phone for everyman.

"Upgrade quickly or you will regret it"

 

This was my first smartphone so I loved it at first. The ability to use apps, take pictures, use emojis etc. was great...for about 4 months. Battery life: I've had this phone for a little less than a year now and if this thing is off the charger for...

"Amazing smart phone for the price"

 

I have had this phone for about a month, and it is an amazing smart phone for the price. Here are some notes: - The size is perfect to fit in a pocket. The 5" phones are just too big. - The battery life is good. At the end of the day, I usually have...

"fabulous"

 

This is my first smartphone, and I have had it for 2 weeks. It is great! It has all the features that I want in a phone: phone, text, email, GPS, internet.I haven't used the GPS because there are so many other features that I am still learning about....

great all around

typical smartphone battery life, and no flip case

Wrong size SIM Card

 

I can't believe I got the wrong size SIM. The SIM number matched the number printed on the outside of the box. Also there was no activation code number.

Got on sale for $99 ; Nice phone for the price

SIM Card that came in the box didn't fit ; Got regular SIM but phone needed MicroSIM ; Need to spend $10 to get a T-Mobile MicroSIM card

Awesome deal, especially with $40 T-Mobile plan

 

I turned off the Wi-Fi calling like many people have recommended, and I have not had any problem with signal strength. You really do not need Wi-Fi calling if you have unlimited minutes.

This is an amazing phone for the price. It does everything you expect from a smart phone. The battery life is good; it usually has about 70% of the battery left at the end of the day after a moderate amount of use. The wireless hot spot (tethering)...

You have to avoid heavy internet use with the 500 GB data plan. You can always upgrade for more money

Ridiculously good value

 

Had to get rid of my otherwise nice HTC Wildfire S due to intolerable lack of on-Phone flash (couldn't install apps any more.) iPhone ruled out due to rapacious pricing. Wi-Fi calling, hotspot a requirement, so needed a T-Mobile certified phone. Most...

Not too big (unlike most all Androids), fast CPU, plenty of memory, SD slot, 4G, Wi-Fi calling, Wi-Fi hotspot. Wireless reception solid. Good battery life. Battery easily replaceable. Speaker tolerable ; CRAZY value @ $119 (vs. $550 for iPhone 5c??)

So-so fit/finish - the "skin" at the bottom of the battery cover is peeling away a bit on mine
