Samsung Brightside (Verizon Wireless)


Nice keyboard. Responsive touch screen

Terrible viewing angles. Poor camera. Lousy multimedia playback

Only option to avoid smartphone data requirements


I will start by saying that my wife and I have both had this phone for nearly 3 years. I am old school and frugal...had no need to for data and certainly no desire to pay for it. We have a legacy voice plan from our GTE, then AllTel days...before...

Not recommended


This phone kinda stinks. I was happier with my LG Envy 2. This phone is always trying to pop on the Navigator tool or internet and only want to use this phone to text or make phone calls. I wish I can delete the two functions entirely. I would not...

My wife uses this phone. The video quality is horrible, but pictures are good. Menu is weird but for a free or cheap phone you can't go wrong with this!

Good basic+ phone


I found the phone easy to use and setup. The numbers and characters are large enough that I don't need to put my reading glasses on to see them.
