Although I am not a tech freak, I do like new technology, but when sometimes you can't afford to keep up you have to stick with what you've already got. I have had this phone for over 2 years now, and never had time or could be bothered changing it, because I've got so used to it. Its camera and all technical details are not amazing and not nearly as good of the models that came out after it, but I can assure you it lasts!!! The only problem would be that the sound it makes is not that loud, but samsung phones are known to do that anyway. I have dropped it banged it against the wall, it's lived through a lot, and it's never given any kind of faults. It has definitely been the best old machine i have ever had. If your budget is low or you like old school, sleek mobile this is definitely the one to have! It will not disappoint you, I promise! Give it a chance!
