Good: 3.2 MP camera. Big, bright screen. Doesn't require a data package ($$$) through certain providers. Music/sound quality from God. Bad: No way to calibrate or adjust touch-screen settings, which seem dull to begin with. Can't listen to music while accessing anything else on the phone. When choosing music by an artist, the songs are listed alphabetically and not by album - why? SLOW transitions between screens (a "message sent" alert that stays on the screen for a solid 2 seconds after each text - who has time for that?). Really annoying (and slow) three-buzz text vibrate that should have been phased out years ago. When my phone is on vibrate only, I have to wait until the fourth ring before I know that it's a call and not just a text. The bottom line: This is an attractive phone that is mechanically sound and easy to figure out. However it is too simple, dated, and un-customizable for the modern user. My 2009 Chocolate Touch is better in most ways and was cheaper too.

This is a great phone! The touch screen is very sensitive, but not too sensitive, it's just right. The call quality is very good, it's pretty light for being a bigger phone, and the slide out keyboard and on-screen keyboard work very well. This phone is very user-friendly. Plus, for being fairly uncommon, there are lots of covers and accessories available for it.

This phone is great for users who want the touch display without the data package. Couldn't get a better phone for the price!

I use my cell phone for personal travel; it connects to the bluetooth snycmyride in my Ford Edge so I can use hands free dialing, GPS, radio controls, etc. I don't need a smart phone because I have to carry a blackberry. Anyway, Ford updated the software in my car and since then the phone will not connect. I would hate to think that every time the software for my car is updated I will have to buy a new phone. I have returned the phone to Samsung and was told that the phone's software was updated but it still didn't connect with the car. I received the phone Wednesday night, tried to pair it with the car Thursday, even took it to the dealership, it still didn't work, so I returned it Friday. If it still does not work (and I don't believe it will because it is not a smart phone) I will have get another phone AND it will NOT be a Samsung after reading the other cell phone reviews on this site. But to be honest my old phones (which I reactivated why Samsung is updating the software on the Brightside) will connect but they do not stay connected.

I got this Phone with a new plan. This phone randomly dials while sitting on the counter while charging. (It's fun when the Police bang on your door at 3 am because your phone dialed 911 on it's own.) You are unable to answer a call without the phone disconnecting it as the touch screen is so sensitive it receives a signal through a leather belt holster that came with the phone. When messaging the phone regularly types the message into the send to side so your recipient gets a blank text. Ear speaker too quiet even with volume at maximum, and the proximity sensor is weak so your cheek touching the screen ends the call. This phone is too thin so it is difficult for large hands to hold. There seems to be no way to increase all font sizes. The camera zoom does not work. You cannot zoom in on pictures taken. Just if there were a phone that only would call and text, that would make me happy.
