This Samsung smartphone is an easy to use mobile phone, which contains all the essential items you would expect in a phone plus plenty of extras. You can have many pages of applications that you want and order in any way that you like. Items such as phone calls and messages are on the first page so they are easy to get to. There is also an option to lock the phone, with either a number or letter password or you can use a gesture lock. The screen is bright but can be adjusted and the picture quality is excellent due to the HD screen. The phone is light so does not feel heavy in your hand if you make long phone calls. The battery life is long, I have had this phone for a year and the battery still lasts five days. There is space for you to add your own memory card so you can store more pictures and videos etc.
To download extra applications there is a Google Play applications which gives you a variety of both paid and free applications. There are lots of applications to choose from so there is always something to suit your needs, even if you just want a game.
The phone does require updates from Samsung on a regular basis, sometimes this can be a bit difficult. However, after updating the phone does become faster and better.
There are two cameras on the phone. The first is on the front above the screen, this is not good quality as it does not have many mega pixels. The second camera is on the back of the phone this is eight mega pixels and with the HD quality the pictures are not too bad.
The wireless on the phone connects very quickly and automatically connects to your home internet once you have set it up. The 3G is also quite reliable but sometimes this does not connect first time and won't turn on. However the GPS when turned on will show you where you are and the surrounding area, but is only useful if your walking around not if you want to use it as a sat nav for a car.
There is an auto rotation button which when on if you turn your phone the image on the screen will turn so you are able to read it. This can be turned off if it does get annoying as from experience it is very sensitive.
Overall, this Samsung mobile phone is an improvement on the original Samsung Galaxy S but there are some items that need to be changed to make it better and more reliable phone as a whole. After a year mine has not had a faulted once and is still going as strong as the day that I got it. Before buying trial one in a shop or some elses to see if it is the right phone for you. I hope this review has helped you make a decision.
