Pros decent camera, runs jelly bean, android os, has a keyboard, good screen quality, decent battery life, price
Cons keyboard is mediocre, the light for the keyboard only stays on for 1 second, not enough ram for the os, will sometimes lag if you don't clear the ram, you need to press the home button hard for it to work
Summary This is probably one of the best mid-range Samsung phones for T-Mobile and it is one of the few phones with a physical keyboard. I originally bought this phone for the keyboard, and I can honestly say that I haven't been impressed with that part of the phone. I actually type better on swiftkey than I do with the physical keyboard on this. My previous phone was the galaxy blaze and I have to admit that the blaze ran better on gingerbread than this does on jelly bean, but a phone with a more recent os was definitely necessary considering some apps don't even work on gingerbread. I guess I'm happy with the upgrade considering that I only paid 200 for this phone off contract, but it's not a phone that's going to blow you away. It's just an average Samsung smartphone.Another plus is that the physical keyboard comes in handy when you're typing on message boards. The on screen keyboard takes up too much of the screen.
