Rated 5 out of 5 by Pleasantly suprised , great features with an untouchable price point ! The first thing I want to say is do not listen to the poor reviews that a few customers have left about this device . The problems they list are either due to their inexperience with the Android platform or their inability to read the instructions . This phone does it all and at the current price point you will not find a better value for your money. I have been a smartphone user since their introduction into the market and I can honestly tell you that this phone is top notch. I could write a very long review but I will stick to the basics and hopefully that will help others make their decision easier. The phone is very user friendly and even comes with a physical User Manual to help guide you along if you are new to the Android platform . The Avants screen is a 4.5 display and it looks great . It is vibrant, easy to navigate and is still small enough to allow for one handed operation . I am just going to list a few features that I think are most important and rare for a phone at this price point. The phone offers WiFi calling , 4G LTE , Screen Mirroring , NFC tap and pay , GPS Navigation , Wireless Printing , Download Booster ( uses 4G and WiFi simultaneously for downloading larger files ) , 16GB of storage , Front and Rear Camera with flash ( Rear Camera ) , Mobile HotSpot/ Tethering and Bluetooth . The call quality is excellent. The Avant uses the latest VoLTE technology which results in a crisp , noise free conversation . I was actually very surprised at how " clean " the sound was . The people on the other end said it sounded like I was in the room with them . It comes pre-loaded with Android 4.4.2 KitKat and 16GB of on-board storage w/expandable Micro SD card slot . The operating system needs about 4GB to run the phone leaving you with around 11GB out of the box for downloading apps, storing files and capturing picture and video . I downloaded and updated all of my previous applications from my Google Play account that were on my old phone and I still have 10GB of usable storage left. This is a great feature for people who cannot afford to buy an SD card right away . It does come with some pre-installed apps that cannot be uninstalled ( Bloatware ) but you have the ability to turn them off in the applications menu . Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and I would recommend the GALAXY Avant to anyone looking to purchase their first smartphone or to experienced users like myself . The only Con I can honestly think of is the battery life but that is a problem with ALL smartphones ! This review is getting longer than I anticipated so I will just end by saying that if you are on the fence about purchasing the GALAXY Avant GO FOR IT ! You will not be disappointed .

Rated 5 out of 5 by New Galaxy Owner After having a "flip phone" finally have switched over to a Smartphone. It's a new experience and is taking a little time to get the hang of a new phone. None the less I am enjoying the phone and now am able to text. February 19, 2015
