Galaxy Series

Comments about Samsung Galaxy Smartphone:

For the past three and a half years, I have been using the Samsung Galaxy Prevail from Boost Mobile. In the beginning, I really haven't experience with the defects of this cellular phone. Over the past year, I have experience so many problems with this phone. I am not even sure if it is because of how old it is or because of something else. I am in Tallahassee and the service in most parts of this city is not good. I can be walking and the quality of service is superior and as I move from one spot to another the reception can easily fall out, to the point of having my calls dropped. The phone does freeze a lot. I am not sure why that is. It also cuts off and on on it own. I am not sure if that is because of the service provider, Boost Mobile, or because the phone manufacturer, Samsung, I just do not know. However, I will say, this is a good phone as a starter phone. If you are teaching your children how to use a phone and don't want them to mess/break a very expensive phone like and Apple Iphone.

Design
I like the design of the galaxy prevail. Like I said, it is great phone but has problems. But is a good phone to use also to teach your kids.

Great beginner smartphone

By 

from USA

Comments about Samsung Galaxy Smartphone:

I downgraded from a Blackberry to this smaller smartphone for budget purposes. The Android OS is much more user-friendly and easier to navigate than the RIM OS. The access to so many more apps is definitely a plus. However, this phone offers such limited internal memory; and even with the addition of a 32G SD card does little to ease this problem, as many of the apps I downloaded could not be transferred to the SD card. It also came preloaded with so many useless programs and apps that could not be removed. The small internal memory forced me to install and uninstall Google Play as needed. I would install it to download an app, and then immediately uninstall to allow the recently downloaded app to function properly. I would not recommend this phone for an experienced smartphone user, but I would recommend it for beginners whose need for advanced apps is nonexistent.

Nicely priced and good quality phone

By

Comments about Samsung Galaxy Smartphone:

The samsung galaxy prevail is a decent phone.

Battery Life
the battery lasts as long as most other smartphone batteries, (which is far too short, but thats a smartphone for ya!)

Display/Screen Quality
The display quality is superb. Very clear!

Call Quality
I haven't had any problems with the sound or quality of any calls.

Ease of Use
This phone is pretty easy to use. It is all touch screen, no slideout keyboard, so if you have problems with touchscrren, this might not be the phone for you. This is my first "all touchscreen" phone, and it took me a little whilke to get use to it, but i have the hang of it now!

Durability
I have only had this phone for two months now, but i have dropped it a few times, and it has held up very well!

Design
This phone is sleek and fits in your pocket nicely.

Freeze Frame!

By 

from South Solon, OH

Comments about Samsung Galaxy Smartphone:

Don't buy it. It constantly freezes, gets crappy reception, and no return period. It has a lot of great features, but in the end, the positives do not outweigh the negatives.

Battery Life
Battery life lasts about 9 hours total, no talk time. With talk time, your looking at about 4-5 hours.

Call Quality
When you can make a call, call quality is decent, but I have a lot of dropped calls. I can't blame that all on the phone, though, that could be the service too.

Galaxy Prevail would be great if it weren't for all the problems

By 

from Middle Island, NY

Comments about Samsung Galaxy Smartphone:

I love the features the Galaxy Prevail has, unfortunately, the phone has a ton of problems. It freezes constantly! I need to turn the phone off and back on at least 5 times per day. Sometimes, the phone just doesn't respond properly. In this case, I need to reset it to it's factory settings. This wipes out all of my apps, contacts, etc. I wish I could return the phone, but they don't have any kind of trial period. Once you buy, you're stuck with it!
