Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Durable, Realistic color, Lightweight, good-sized keys, simple to use
I chose this unit as my prepaid Go-Phone. I wanted something simple and easy-to-use in emergencies, on the road, etc.: not in the market for a "smart phone" at all. I love this phone! It was super-easy to set up and use right away. The keys are large enough for my old fingers to work, the screen display is more than adequate, the audio signals are helpful, and the case is extremely durable (I have dropped it a few times and it doesn't even scratch). This phone does exactly what I need it to, and also has many features I've ignored up to now. I wouldn't mind the addition of a simple camera and a non-glare display, but the price was sooooo right, and overall this phone is ideal for a minimal-use, non-techie like me.

Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Durable, Realistic color, Lightweight
Great slick phone for a great price. Has pretty much everything that an Android or I-Phone has except for ultra sophisticated features like camera, GPS, etc. Otherwise works great and it has a fairly strong outer design

Pros: Inexpensive, Durable, Lightweight, battery life
This is a decent phone for someone who does not need a lot of functions and just wants something to talk on. The pros for this phone are that it has a great battery life and good reception. I am on my second one after about a year cause I broke the top off the first one and have rarely ever not been able to get reception. I really wish it was bluetooth enabled for hands free talk in the car and wish it also had a volume button on the outside. All in all it is a good phone for the cheap price.

Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Durable, Lightweight, great reception
Cons: Did not meet expectations, does not use industry standard 3.5mm headset jack
Samsung makes an incredible product.
But I cannot use, or recommend, them.
Reason: I prefer using corded headsets, to talk hands free while driving. This phone, like so many other Samsung products, do not use the industry standard 2.5mm/3.5mm headset jack.
Samsung does not include a micro USB to 3.5mm adapter, nor do they sell them.
Therefore, this otherwise excellent phone is useless - a shame, because I need to replace my Wife's phone, but she too, prefers to use corded headsets over bluetooth.
