Rated 3.4 out of 5★ by 317reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5★ by Horrible phone I paid $100 for this phone in November and I hate it. I am planning to buy another one as soon as I get enough money to. This phone is very slow. Sometimes it doesn't want to charge at all and when it does, it takes forever. The GPS in it does not work. It often says I am a couple hundred miles from where I actually am and half of the apps that require you to show your location (shopping apps) will not work. It constantly freezes up and goes blank on me just when I need it the most. I would never buy another one of these phones. 02/01/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great Phone ! Love it Looks expensive, works great off Verizon towers, great battery life and screen size and picture quality great too, only $100 ! 10/30/2013
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Had Nothing But Trouble From Day One! The phone is a piece of junk, I had trouble from day one with the phones operating system, too many constant errors and freezing up. I have had other Android phones without issue, so I'm sure that it is the phone, a couple of friends that I work with bought the same phone and have the same issues. Good luck on contacting Straight Talk and try understand their broken English, they read from a script and are of little or no help. The only good thing was the phone was on Verizon towers so reception was great. Do yourself a a good deed and select a different phone. 01/01/2014
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Straight Talk Samsung Phone I am pleased with both the phone and the prepaid service. I'm glad I made the leap from an outdated service plan and dinosaur phone. 01/21/2014
Rated 1 out of 5★ by great phone to just talk on The phone is not bad the features are ok the camera works good in light zoom is very good. i have had this phone for 9 months and have used it alot the battery doesnt stay charged up a full day the key board doesnt put numbers or letters in that you push. phone locks up if someone calls you or texts you while you are sending a message or in address book. google play has a lot of apps but there again will lock your phone up if you try to down load more than 3 apps even with a 32 mb sd card. 02/04/2014
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Nice phone for entering into the "smart phone" era My wife and I are old hippy types, and as such, were hesitant to give up our "high tech" (10 year old) Motorola Razor 3 flip phones. We did so at the begging of our twin sons and their girlfriends. So far we have been pleased with the features of the Galaxy Centura phones. We have not been able to do the "voice to text" for texting, and are not sure if these phones even have this feature. we will keep looking to see if they will do this. All in all, we have found these phones to do more than we require. We still have not figured out how to access calls made/received. Maybe it is not a feature. The texting to/from retrieve is a little daunting. Still can't do it. Maybe this is not possible as well? 01/07/2014
Rated 2 out of 5★ by freezing frustration Not even 1 hour after activation this phone started freezing on me over heating and vibrating for no apparent reason so now I am going to have to mail this product back to walmart and get my money back then go and get another phone and wait for that one all of this is just not what I expected out of a Samsung phone or walmart I have never experienced problems with Samsung phones I have the past 02/08/2014
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Clock doesn't work I have had this phone since August 2013 and about 30 days after I got it the clock stopped working correctly. It is a common problem with this phone. It reverts to "Greenwich Means Time" plus the time zone you are in. IE. Central time zone is 6 hours different than GMT so when my phone should say 10 am it actually reflects 3 am. It changes when you cross time zones but will always be wrong.You can live without a clock, but you cannot use the alarm clock in the phone, you never know what time a "missed" phone call came in unless the caller leaves a very detailed message on voice mail and tells you when they called. Also you always need to have your watch on cuz if you are like me you have over the years started to rely on your phone to check the time. You always need to carry a travel alarm when on road trips, etc. Forget this phone.Another issue is texting. When you text, your text is time stamped. The phone changes time right in the middle of a thread and so your last text will pop up way up at the top of the thread. You cannot keep track of when a text was sent. It really messes up your texting conversations.Forget this phone.I bought the extended warrenty, but cannot be without my phone long enough to ship this one out. It is my only phone. So that was a waste of money as well. Other posters have noted that the clock cannot be fixed, so prob a waste of time & more money anyway. It is cheaper and more cost effective to just get a better phone to start out ! I have always had LG phones in the past and should have stayed with LG. Never had issues with LG. I will go back if I can find one that suits my needs.Also the phone connection is not strong enough to send or recieve pictures via text. They always need to be e-mailed back and forth.Take my word for it----Forget this phone. 02/08/2014
