This phone has received a considerable amount of negative reviews - compared against similar phones of the same price range, this is an excellent phone. Many of the negative reviewers seem to obviously be expecting the features of a $200 phone from a $80 Trac phone (UPDATE: Thanks to a commenter the Walmart retail of this phone is now only $28. I have not verified this, but if that be the case, this phone is an INCREDIBLE VALUE).

First off the OS on this system is NOT AN ANDROID (it is a Windows based OS), and it is technically NOT A SMART PHONE but has MANY of the features of a smart phone. The browser is Dolphin, used by many Android based phones, so it is a decent browser, with some things you can do, some things you cannot. The phone supports some apps, others it does not...

This phone is a 3G pseudo-smart phone (it has many of the qualities of a smart phone but is technically not one because it lacks a few things, all of which I will mention) with a mid-sized touch screen and runs a Windows based operating system, as opposed to Android, for instance. The screen flips so it can be viewed horizontally or vertically in any screen/view, and texts can be done via regular virtual phone keys or a horizontal virtual keyboard. It is not loaded with apps, but has pre-loaded practical apps that will be covered in this review, as well as additional optional apps available from samsung... it doesn't have nearly the available apps of say an iPhone, which, while they are very very cool, especially things like, for instance, meditation breathing apps to transportation apps, mimic police scanners, and dining/store finders/reviews, and apps that allow you to practically run full programs, etc.

As I write this I've had the Samsung T528G for about two weeks, with Straight Talk service.
Straight Talk has been fine so far. Service has been fine. I just spent the weekend out in the boondocks, and I didn't have service. My wife had service with her Verizon phone if she stood at the very top of a hill facing a certain direction. Other than that, Straight Talk has worked out great. And that one incident isn't worth paying $30 extra dollars a month for.
Phones are not a big source of interest or entertainment for me. I simply want an effective communication device that doesn't cost too much, and doesn't cause a lot of frustration. This one fits the bill very well. Call quality is fine.
One thing I do deeply appreciate it the easy and effective lock mechanism. Every phone I've had for the past five years "pocket dials" - even when locked. This phone, however, is a one-button lock, that stays locked until I say so. It's easy to unlock also, but not accidentally. Thank you!
I'm in my forties, so touch screens are still kind of a novelty for me. My fingers are about average for a man. Even so, I found overall that the screen was responsive and easy to use.
The QWERTY keypad (context dependent) is a little small. I've only sent about five texts, so in fact, I'm still getting used to it. I'm pretty sure it will be fine once I get used to it. I turned off the "T9" feature which guesses which word you are trying to type. It's worthless because you can't keep adding new letters once it kicks in.
The other aspects of the touch screen are easy and responsive.
This is the only part of the phone which I dislike. I view the whole concept as a design flaw.

I just purchased this phone from walmart and i must say, that im surprised at how well it functions..Before i added a plan to it, i tried the wi-fi out and it worked fantastically..The youtube only works if your wi-fi connection is good and the quality of the videos might not be up to par with the other touch screens, it's still decent..Im not a fan of the apps, but the ones that are available for the phone are limited if you go on the phone site, but there are other sites that you can go to in order to get more..I heard alot of ugly reveiws about the phone freezing and rebooting itself..As long as i had it, it hasn't froze once...Im thinking i got one of there tweeked phones. They probably got all of the bugs out of mine..But, on the safe side, it might be better to just purchase it from the walmart stores..That way if you don't like it, you can return it for a refund..Overall, I think this phone is really sturdy with good features and The calls are clear. The txt messages are something you have to get use to, but thats y they have styluses...Good priced phone and it is a whole lot better than my old flip phone..Any questions..Just holler

I bought this phone yesterday at Wal-mart. The lady who helped me said "This is one of our hot items". I could see why. The activation process will make you seem like you messed it up. So when you put the phone card info on it be prepared when you turn it on it will say "activation required" then it will shut off and shut back on and say "activation complete". Unlike other phones you get three wallpaper screens but, there's a catch you can only change two of them. The primary is that beach scene(I would like to change it but I can't). On your wallpaper screen you will see a little grey tab on your left with a white arrow on it. When you tap that it will open a column that has all kinds of widgets such as Myspace,facbook,Birthday Notices,Web Browser(just to name a few). You can leave them in that column or you can drag them out and put them anywhere on your main screen(or the other two). I dragged a few out but it was getting crowded on the screen.(some of those tabs such as the google is huge)So I managed to put all of those widgets back in the column(it wasn't easy)I have left my screens clear. Iv'e noticed that this phone doesnt go Qwerty unless you turn it sideways it's touchscreen all the way. This phone is very light and fragile(i dropped it on my kitchen floor last night and the battery fell out)it's okay and it didn't get scratched either. I going to get a case soon. Let's move on to the texting. It's tricky vertical is sometimes easy to master,the qwerty however might need some practice and be sure to turn off that greenT9 button when using the qwerty because it will start typing your sentences for you(and it wont be what you were wanting to say). Overall this is a good phone(needs practice to master all of it's applications)I give it a THUMBS UP!!!
