"Decent phone but not "ALL THAT"..."3.0 starson by orlandotommy
Pros: - Large Phone (If that's what you like)
- Ability for 64GB Micro SD
- Great call quality, speakerphone and non speakerphone
- Loud Ringer
- Stylus compatible for note taking
- Good battery life
Cons: - Text messaging and Email interface is awful/horrible
- Camera takes fuzzy/grainy pics, bad low light shots also
- Power button in bad location
- Screen is NOT clear, actually somewhat fuzzy compared to iPhone4S,5 and Droid DNA.
Summary: This is a OK phone, but some of the reviews that say "This is the best phone ever..." etc.. it's apparent that those folks haven't had the opportunity to test out other phones like the Droid DNA and the iPhone 4S/5. Those phones have perfect displays, they are crystal clear but this phone is fuzzy and its annoying. If this phone had a better display it would be much easier to get used to.
The email client on this phone is HORRIBLE, i use an Exchange server and it's just bad, trust me, hook this to your Exchange server and you will see, the font and such are just too large, and that's with the font sizes turned down as small as they go.
The text messaging interface is also a mess, once you start typing you can't see anything other than a huge keyboard taking up over half the screen and maybe 1 row of chats, you have to continually hide the keyboard to see your conversation, very annoying, again the font is set to smallest but it's still huge.
Lastly, the camera STINKS, really people, "awesome photos"? Sigh, my Droid DNA took awesome photos, the iPhone took perfect photos but this is a joke, grainy and almost useless in low light even with the super bright flash.
I do however love the call quality, better than ANY phone out there in my opinion and since I use this phone for its phone features I like that alot. Once annoyance is there is no key tone sound when you're in the dialer app, it's totally silent unless you assign a ringtone to each button being pressed which makes no sense.
I'll keep it a while but so far i think the Samsung UI is the worst I have ever seen, not saying HTC's Sense is a lot better but the Samsung is pretty bad.
Anyways, just my two cents from a very busy guy!
