"Not the way to start using an Android phone."2.0 starson by superflyxxi
Pros: Uses the Android OS (2.1 out of the box).
The slide out keyboard is nice, but the space bar is located in an odd spot.
Cons: Sluggish controls
Sometimes would lose data connection
Phone will ring, but no way to answer
Phone is very slow in general
Weak battery (will last a day idle)
Summary: I've had this phone for a few months now, and I've been trying to figure out get the thing to respond better, battery last longer, etc. My biggest gripe with the phone has to be its sluggishness. It affects everything about the phone. If you get a phone call, it will vibrate for a while, then eventually play the ring tone, and eventually display the phone number (sometimes without contact image or information). Good luck at this point trying to hold the accept buttons. The phone won't answer, and instead I have to call the person back. I've had to do this several times that past few weeks.
The battery on this phone won't last very long either. I recommend not using chat clients on the phone as it will cause the phone to only last maybe 10 hours on battery. Without it, I think the phone can last about 24 hours without a charge. Maybe 30 hours at best.
If you're looking to get into the Android experience, this is NOT the phone for you. If you are looking to get a phone, this is NOT the phone for you. If you want to use it as a media device and nothing related to a phone, then consider this. Look for other Samsung phones or other Android phones. Stay away from this one.
