After too long of a time, Straight Talk has finally moved out of the dark ages and has begun to offer Android phones with the more current Android OS: 4.0 vs. 2.3 on most of their other phones. That being said this phone is an excellent phone. First, it works on the Verizon network and works well. Reception is excellent, call quality/clarity is crisp and clear. 3G is pretty decent on Verizon but don't expect anything near 4G LTE speeds. For having an 800mhz processor this phone responds very well-it's snappy and responsive with no lags. The screen is bright and gorgeous. If you're wondering how much memory it has to store apps the answer is 2.75GB which is a lot. It also has the capacity for up to 32GB external SD CARD storage (for photos and music, etc). Battery life is much better than expected. The rear facing 3MP camera is decent but is missing a flash. There is no front facing camera. It utilizes the Google Play App Store FYI. Setup was a breeze. Other features include picture caller ID and the ability to respond to an incoming call with a text message much like the iPhone 5. Voice commands work well on this phone too. All in all, coming from a smartphone geek, I rate this phone an A! Simply the best Android 4.0 phone Straight Talk has to offer. You can't go wrong especially for $99!!

Frustrating phone

This is my second Centura from Walmart and through StraightTalk. I am switching after about 10 months of use. The first phone was returned to the store within 2 weeks as it would not keep time and would shut off at random times. This phone seemed to work much better and has had no problem keeping time, but has its own glitches that I have now grown tired of. Various apps cause the phone to freeze entirely, while receiving group texts from iPhones is a nightmare. More often than not, when receiving a text from an iPhone I get a "Download" option, then a subsequent "Download failed" message. The download continues to attempt itself for hours afterwards, producing even more "download failed" messages. They have all attempted to change the settings on their phone but to no avail. My iPhone friends have adjusted and now no longer text me, but rather just call. I am giving it 2 stars because there have not been any problems with calling people, but problems with just about every other aspect.

This phone has already exceeded expectations for me. I bought in May and just activated today. However, I have been using the phone off of my Wi-Fi and was impressed with what I was able to do even before activation including sending photos and email plus getting the downloaded apps. I wanted. A great surprise this morning as the straight talk customer service worked like a charm. Last time I tried to activate a different phone with them it was a night mare. But today it was perfect, the phone was activated and number ported in less than 10 minutes. My first call was to my daughter and she said the voice quality was excellent I knew I was having no problems hearing her. Must add that st. talk listened and corrected my difficulties with them and managed to keep me as a customer when I had already convinced my self that maybe it was too big of a hassle. This phone with the updated android is huge step up for those of you wanting to remain on Verizon towers like I did and get a st. talk smart phone.

Before I get to my review. I have to make it clear this is my first EVER smartphone.I needed a phone with apps, especially for GPS for my new job. About a year ago, the last cheap prepaid I bought for almost 70 bucks I thought the phone had all the apps I needed/wanted FB/Pandora/Youtube and it clearly said on the box "download apps" but, it was just a regular old cheap phone. So yesterday the 22nd of May I went and bought this phone for 99 bucks. I was nervous I was going to waste my money again, get home set it up and not have the actual apps I wanted. Man was I happy about my choice. Not only did it have everything I wanted, it was the perfect phone for me. This phone is about 5 time the speed of my wifes phone and a lot easier to guide through the phone. I could sit here all morning about all the amazing things about this phone but, I need to get to sleep. If anyone is reading this and is having doubts about this purchase, don't. Go out and buy this right now!!!

This is my first smart phone. So please take into consideration that I am "smartphone challenged". At first I was ready to return it and go back to my old flip phone. After a little tutoring from daughter in law and 2 weeks of using it I like it much better. I am amazed at all the capabilities of this phone. The ST Samsung phones use Verizon towers. So that was a big consideration in the purchase of this brand since Verizon is very strong in my area. So before purchasing any phone read the reviews. Do your research to find out which brand of ST phones are serviced by what cellular provider and what service is strongest for your area. (My old flip phone was also a ST Samsung so I knew the brand I needed). The only reason I gave it a 4 is because some of the apps like the GPS really drain your battery. (not uncommon for all smartphones) I do recommend purchasing a car charger for on the go. I also spent the extra $9 for the damage warranty. Hope this is helpful!

  • A. I don't have this phone yet, but researching for an upgrade. Have used ST for 2+ years now using an old Samsung flip-phone. (Yes, they do still sell them :). ST offers 2 plans but the smart phones only work with the $45/month unlimited minutes, texts, data for a month. No need to purchase extra minutes. Based on monthly charge, not minutes

  • A. Straight Talk has 3 options with monthly plans as far as I am aware of. $35 - 1,000 minutes, 1,000 texts and some data too. (Walmart and Straighttalk.com has more information on the specifics). Then they have a Unlimited Plan and an International Calling plan as well, that cost a little more. With the unlimited plan you just need to pay for the next month to get more minutes for that month. With the 35 limited plan, you can add a card before the service end date (a month) expires, it will just change the next service end date. I haven't used or looked into the international plan, Straighttalk.com could probably answer that if needed. Hope that helps a little.
