    1 GB of internal Memory. 1 GHZ Processor
    6/9/2012

    Customer review by JohnATtheFALLS

    5.0 stars by JohnATtheFALLS

    1 GB of internal Memory. 1 GHZ Processor The internal memory is the most overlooked spec on any phone. Depending on the version of Android you are running, you may not be able to store programs on your SD card. All the other phones I looked at in this class only have 500 MB. This phones hardware is matched perfectly to Android 2.3. Bonus! -->>> VOICE RECOGNITION input that works without training. Just amazing. This model is on the Verizon Network. CDMA 1xRTTI for more detailed info. This was my main reason for giving up my Net 10 LG 800. I now have a good signal inside my cottage with a tin roof. It runs Netflix perfectly over my WiFi along with Live 365 internet radio. I loaded Skype onto it and it would make calls over my WiFi but the calls kept dropping ... which could probably be fixed with some research. But with unlimited call time, who needs Skype anymore. .... The call quality and sound is excellent and it works great as a speaker phone. The included music player gives me the option to play my music files according to their file structure on the SD Card so I do not have to mess with playlists and tags. I do not have a Google account and have downloaded my apps from Amazon ... Except for the Nook Reader which I downloaded from the SlideMe website. The SD card will show up as an external drive when plugged into my Win 7 PC. GPS: I live in the Adirondacks and hike and bicycle ride a lot. With a proper app, this plots my course and records speed, distance and other info. In my first critical test of the GPS, I found the repeatability to be within about 6 feet. More than good enough for tail survey work. It will use the battery up quickly on GPS but that is the nature of the beast. It seems that there is a learning curve in understanding how to manage the battery properly and I'm still down at the lower end. I'm willing to buy spare batteries for this feature. I learned to navigate Coast Guard Aircraft using 1950s vintage Loran A hardware, time delay charts, and calipers... This just blows me away! Camera: Good quality. It needs bright light otherwise the blacks are a little blotchy and some other colors are mottled. I have not had it out in bright sunlight in which I would expect it to make very nice pictures. Maybe I should say that it is only a little bit lesser quality than my friends 5 MP I-phone camera. I am a serious photographer and am probably being too critical of the photo quality. It has no flash but the exposure setting is easy to adjust. The real drawback of the camera is that it will not load any of the camera apps from the Amazon store. I was at least hoping to get Cam Scanner to make PDF documents. The upside is that it takes fine document photos that are readable but just not post processed like CamScanner would do. Do not buy a Droid phone because of the camera MP size. 3 MP is a great size for most common purposes. 5 MP is only a marginal increase over 3 MP and some of the 5 MP Droid phones have smaller memory and slower processors. I still have a lot to learn about this phone and the Android OS but this appears to be the best piece of hardware on the market for the price.

    I bought the samsung proclaim to replace my samsung precedent. The precedent was a great phone, dedicated camera key and the power button is on the top of phone. My new PROCLAIM is way faster and the unlock screen is better. Also when you make a call and put it to your ear the screen just goes black as to not press buttons then when you pull it away to end call or pull up keypad it just reappears (you don't have to hit unlock) With the precedent you would have to unlock by pressing the power button to to end call or get to keypad. I have had NO problems with this phone. No camera,freezing, or shutting off randomly. I loved my PRECEDENT, the only real reason for the switch was because I get better reception on VERIZON towers. Now that i switched to the Procaim I am even happier because it has built in documents viewer and ADOBE FLASH ! The phone speed and internet connection are extremely faster than the Precedent. But the power button is on the side of phone and doesn't have a dedicated camera key(you have to touch a button on the screen to take a picture). This phone was hard to get, so if you really want one, you may have to drive an hour or two to find a store that has one left in stock. Walmart has been OUT online since July 5th. I ordered mine on July 4th, picked pay cash, then took my email from walmart to the store, they scanned bar code off my screen, and I payed cash. Then the phone arrived at my walmart for pick up on July 10th 2012. ALSO this phone can install firefox and many apps that my precedent couldn't. If you have a precedent and you wished the screen was wider, get this phone! The screen size is perfect! The PROCLAIM also has some very new software included that some high end phones don't even have yet. WiFi DIRECT allows you to connect to a printer w/wifi and print things, also you can connect to other wifi devices and transfer videos,contacts,music, BUT AT Speeds that blows bluetooth away. This is not hotspot, as far as I can tell, trust me i tried to teather like that and it didn't work. BEST phone I have ever had! good luck trying to get one!

    I purchased this cell phone after making the decision to upgrade from the Nokia E-71. I compared the Proclaim against the Precedent, which I had purchased for my husband in April. He liked his and was impressed with it's abilities and functions. Capabilities of the Proclaim were greater although not vastly from the Precedent. My selling point on this particular phone model is that it is VERIZON based which has better coverage in the tri-county area. The Precedent is Sprint based...my husband has not had any complaints, but I'm on the road more often due to family responsibility and health services career. The call reception and placement has been perfect so far with the Proclaim. I have had no problems connecting to my PC. We have watched Netflix on the Proclaim in the doctor's office and in the car/field trip on bus without drag, lag, or interruption as it connects via 3G/WiFi. All in all I love this phone and the Verizon base sells it without the Verizon headache and astro-bill. Only negatives I have encountered would be the Proclaim didn't come with a rubberized skin as my husband's Precedent did, it eats battery life if the GPS/Internet/Bluetooth features are engaged (they can be disconnected from primary screen), and it has no flash for the camera. The camera/video is easy to operate, photos are easy to edit and send/post to social media. I would buy this phone again, although I do wish it was closer in price to the Precedent. The $50 difference is that of a little over a month's ST unlimited card, but the difference of Verizon coverage seals it for me.

    • YES-YES-YES!!! The Proclaim uses Verizon Towers! (I'm not sure Verizon wants everyone to know this because their Illusion is almost the EXACT model!)The Proclaim & the Illusion use all the same accessories--can't find a Proclaim cover? Illusion cover will fit--as well as other accessories.

    • From what I was told when I asked that question was that Verizon towers are used BUT Verizon contract customers are priority, then Verizon pre-paid are 2nd, then 3rd party prepaid users (such as Walmarts Straight Talk) are last. So if the towers are being slammed with usage 3rd parties take a back seat........

    • It does, I travel all around the state of Virginia and have signal everywhere. When I send a text to my email it comes from XXXXXXXXXX@vtext.com which means it is definitely Verizon.

    • Yes it does. Verizon is NOT Straight Talk. Verizon will tell you what they have to in order to sell you on their prepaid or contract program. Also the people at Verizon don't have the information regarding Straight Talk's contracts with companies. Call Straight Talk if you have questions like this, they actually know.

    • I did much, much research while trying to decide WHICH phone to get to switch to Straight Talk. Thru several online sources and directly from the guy at the Walmart Wireless Store, I learned that YES--THIS PROCLAIM USES VERIZON TOWERS.

    • Yes, It works via Verizon tower. I was unable to activate this phone and to make phone call, because it uses only one tower in Toms River, NJ. I visited Verizon store and they checked phone number and informed me that my phone number was attached to those Verizon tower in Toms River,NJ and I live in central NJ and that is why I was unable to make phone call. I couldn't get dial tones on this smart phone. I returned it back. You will be able to use this smart phone, if you live near tower in Toms River, NJ.

    • I did like the other person said and installed Pic2Shop on this phone and it scans barcodes and reads the barcode perfectly. It's a free app and I would try it with this phone.

    • Yes. There is an app called Pic2Shop on the android market and it works. It is for phones which do not have an auto focus camera. Works great. Red Laser app should come out with an update soon for phones without auto focus camera. HTH

    • Unfortunately it is unable to scan barcodes. This is due, I believe, to the fact that the camera is a fixed focus camera. I have tried to scan barcodes all different ways with this and have had no luck.

    • Actually...IT DOES NOT! No matter what app you have. The camera (or atleast mine) cannot focus enough to scan it. After about ten minutes it may get a scan and state it cannot be found. I was very dissapointed . I use my galaxy player as a scanner and it does a beautiful job. I waqs hoping to have one on my phone with internet access when I am shopping.
