This is my first Samsung phone, after mainly being an SE owner. And this is also my first touch screen phone.
Good points:- Call clarity is good. Battery life is good, can usually squeeze about 5-6 days out of it before it needs charging. Screen is nice and bright. I like the fact you can change the fonts on the text messages. Good quality camera.
Bad points:- Screen is not as responsive as I'd like. It's a pain to get into the camera to use it and it's awkward to set up the options, as I find the icons round the edge of the screen confusing. The widgets I have to say are a waste of time. They don't stick in place, you only have to run your finger across the screen and they disappear. You place them where you want and then when you switch your phone back on they've moved.
I get the pop up to say I've got a new text message and have to tap "view" a number of times before it responds.
The phone locks up too quick, by the time I've thought about what I'm doing, I have to unlock it again.
The fake call thing! A good feature yes, but to activate it you have to press and hold one of the volume buttons on the side, which means when I get my phone out of my bag I set it off accidentally and there's no option it seems to disable it. I keep accidentally changing the volume and vibration settings and you only need to press the volume button when the phone is unlocked.
Have dropped 2 stars as there seem to be more bad points than good points for me.
