Just bought 4 of these yesterday, 1 for each family member. Previous phones were talk only, and never wanted the added complexity and always said 'no' when the wife and kids wanted to upgrade. I was wrong. This phone is so easy to use and set up, I'm almost embarrassed. There were only 2 things I had a problem with and 30 seconds with the salesman resolved them. 24 hours with this and I'm talking via the phone and my car, navigating, sending and receiving e-mails, and installing apps! Me, who never wanted a smart phone, is actually having fun using and learning. If a stubborn 66 year old dinosaur like me can do it, anybody can. Thank you Samsung for creating this great product.

I like the download booster for downloading apps music videos and movies faster.It also has 16GB of memory which is great for a phone this price.Camera is also pretty good for the price and pictures come out clear for the most part.I also like the block mode and ability to block people who call and harass or spam calls and can also set it up for contacts of mine if I've busy certain times or days of the week.It does zoom page to page when surfing on the web pretty fast nice processor for the price.Speaker volume is decent but could be better the design and shape of the phone is nice not to bulky or heavy and curved edges makes handling it easy and comfortable.I also like the Samsung talk back feature that i can ask questions and get results faster and talking the information back to me also can ask directions , weathe,r how many miles to destination, sports scores, exc.Finally screen size is nice for the price too and ease of use would definitely recommend
