Pros: Slide out keyboard, apps, lighter than the moment.
Cons: SLOW. poor touch screen response. phone app doesn't actually work. there's no way to lock the phone while you're talking. unclear and messy settings. dies super fast.
Summary: This phone replaced my blackberry. I was attracted to the wide variety of free apps and I had an upgrade. This phone, right of the box, was sluggish. I downloaded task killer and deleted the useless stuff (which is pretty difficult, RIM's set up is way better) and nothing helped. The phone never responds in time, so you can't even answer when people call. And if you call them, you're face will probably hang up for you since you can't lock the screen. Opening messages is difficult, it takes forever and sometimes deletes them while you are trying to open them. I do like how voicemail is set up, but that surely does not make up for the rest that the phone is lacking. For the price, this phone should have been phenomenal. It is frustrating. Opening an e-mail takes three times longer than it ever did on my blackberry.
I do wonder if it is just samsung - I had the rant when it came out and had similar issues. I will definitely never buy another samsung phone.
Don't buy this phone. I'm going back to my blackberry until sprint releases a high quality, highly capable, and affordable device.
