Cons: doesn't support apps on sd
The biggest problem I have with the web reviews of this phone most likely had to do with the person's previous experience with phones. This model is being called the mid-range phone for 2013. It is the first phone on the Virgin Mobile network to use Android 4.1. For me, that was a deciding factor in buying a new phone. I refused to upgrade my phone until my carrier got this version. What you will need to know, if you're a hold-out, is that the $25/mo plan that you've been grandfathered into at VM won't work with this phone. You'll have to start using the $35/mo plan like all the new customers, but it's okay because I'm sure you weren't getting much benefit from your old service anyway. My previous phone was an Intercept. It was pretty cool when I got it, but the battery was never really good. The Intercept had a 12 hour battery life with minimal use (I mean like sending a couple of texts and occassionally checking the clock, that's it). I kept it so long because I liked the physical keyboard and didn't think I'd like the on-screen keyboard, but it really hasn't been that hard to adjust. This phone is lighter and slimmer than the Intercept, has much better battery life, a beautiful screen, makes better use of wifi, has quick response time. I'm not within the LTE area...actually, the area where I live doesn't get much service from any carrier, so I stick with Virgin Mobile because they cost considerably less. This phone still gets a great signal in my area and doesn't get stuck for 5 minutes trying to send a simple text. The few negative reviews this phone has gotten no doubt comes from folks who have switched from high-end or change phones regularly, but if you're like me and you've used the same phone for years, you're going to be amazed at how much better this one is. That's not to say like "If you've lived under a rock, you're going to be amazed at how bright it is at night." It keeps up with the current high-end phones just fine. Just don't load it down with apps you aren't going to use (they're right that you can't store apps on your SD with this one). The battery cover is very thin, which accounts for much of the "feels like cheap plastic" reviews, but it's strong enough to protect the battery, very secure, and keeps the phone from being bulky and heavy. I love the phone. I'm very happy with it.

Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, android 4.1
Cons: features are not working properly
For anyone starting in the Android world, this is a great phone to begin with. While some features are rather annoying - using the Connections Optimizer will turn on WiFi when not desired and the SD card is not treated as the SD card in previous versions of Android - some will enhance your experience with the phone. For example, the NFC capabilities have enabled me to use the phone as a credit card and I am able to leave the real credit card at home.

Pros: Inexpensive, great features, call quality, performance
Cons: buggy, screen quality, slightly cheap feel
This is a good phone, but there are a few issues that hold it back from being a great phone. The first and most annoying for me is that the keyboard is reset to the samsung keyboard after a restart. Second being a random restart or two that I've experienced. (Could have been caused by an app) Also, the screen isn't the best, but for the price It's not awful.
Overall this phone is great if you're coming up from something a lot cheaper.

# of SAMSUNG products I own:1-2
Pros: Built-in speakers, Realistic color, Lightweight
Cons: Did not meet expectations, 2gig internal memory, sd card will only take video music, apps will not run from sd card
First of all I purchased this phone as an upgrade from a Samsung express, which didn't have a lot of internal memory either, but you could put your apps on the sd card. This phone you don't have that feature and ONLY 2gb for apps that includes installed and running. You can't move apps to the sd card unless they are larger than 1GB. I have yet to see an application that is 1GB. Live chat was absolutely no help whatsoever. The 2nd issue, the phone has no accessories available from Samsung, so if you want a case you will have to go through someone else and VERY limited selection. If I knew these issues prior to purchase I would NOT have bought another Samsung, and this will be my last. My wife got the 16GIG i phone for 100 dollars more. Can you buy anything with 2 gigs of memory any more? I really dislike this purchase!!!
