A good not-so-expensive smartphone but battery poor
on 26 December 2011
I bought this pone back in June this year from the CPW. It is very easy to use, touch screen is responsive, the swype text feature is good, although takes a bit of getting used to. The camera at 3 or so MP is ok - best used for outside shots as there's no flash.
My main gripe is the battery. I find it dies too quickly - I'd say I need to charge it every other day and that's just a few calls/texts each day. Also you get no warning when the battery's dying - the phone just goes off. So there's you sitting there thinking 'wow, my phone's been quiet today', and so you go to pick it up just in case you missed a text/call only to find your phone's not even on! What a pain! This has caused me to wake up late on a couple of occasions as the alarm didn't go off.
So although this is a good phone, I've got to mark it down to a 3 for the above issue. Sort it out Samsung!
