Reasonable... but only reasonable
on 25 October 2013
The phone is fully equipped with nice features but its very sluggish... If you want a fun phone for your kids that allows you to put nice android games its probably a good buy, but if you need to use it a lot its not a good option. Phone book takes forever to open. When you want to dial someone the phone first tries to retrieve information from facebook, google, etc, etc, etc, even if you are not connected to anything. You wait and wait and wait for the phone book or the dial keyboard to show. That probably a good way to shave phone expenses...
If you try to open facebook, browser, or any other android app's be prepared to wait... It works... but at a snail rate.
Comparing this phone with the new galaxy or any new phone is like comparing night with day...
Maybe Samsung will put some new software to replace the dial and phone book options. If you need to dial 911 (or 112 if you live in Europe) you will die waiting for the dial options to appear.
I also have a Samsung Galaxy Y (inferior? - it is a lot faster than this one).
