Advantages: Easy to use, responsive screen, loads of apps and games
Disadvantages: A little slimmer than I am used to
This is not my first Samsung phone but it is by far my favourite and I can't wait until my upgrade when I can try the next phone in the series. It's a really nice looking phone and incredibly user friendly - as many Samsung phones are.
The 8mp camera is good and has auto focus, digital zoom and supports JPEG formats. It doesn't bother me any more if i forget to take my camera on days out as i have been able to take very good photos with this camera.
Ease of getting on the internet is fab, loads of apps and games which are free to download and a really good size screen which is sensitive enough to play on. When I got this phone I had considered the HTC Sensation (which my husband got) and I couldn't find much between the 2. At the time this was rated at the top of many mobile phone lists and I quickly agreed that it deserved its place there.
With Android as its operating system, i have found the phone very user friendly with plenty of Android apps to download. My phone can now do almost as much as my laptop!
I got the phone free as part of my new contract. I am currently with Orange and for around £36 per month I get 500 minutes, unlimited texts and 1GB of data. As well as this there are options such as magic numbers and swappables which make the deal even better.
The size of the phone took a little while to get used to as it is fairly thin but a cover which I bought from Ebay for 99p gave the phone just a little bit more substance.
Its 16GB memory is easily expandable by inserting up to 32GB card. I have stored loads of music on it, downloaded lots of games, taken photos and still have plenty of memory between the phone and memory card.
It only has a couple of buttons on it for power, volume and to get back to the home screen so the highly responsive screen is a must. Previously I had insisted on having buttons on my phone but very quickly adapted to not having them. It is very easy to use with easy to find menus and took me no time at all to initially set it up for use.
The address book is very easy to use and allows you to store addresses, email address and much more for each contact. It is also very easy to share these with other phones using Android.
I have been using it for over a year now and I still love it - which is incredible considering how quickly I get bored with my phones.
Summary: Really good, easy to use phone
