I originally wanted the galaxy S3 but I wasn't willing to break the bank for it. My next option was the S2 but I went with this phone instead. It's a great bang for your buck. I would call it the baby version of the S3. I am pretty satisfied with it. The only reason it gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because it has a tendency to freeze up/ restart on sometimes. It doesn't happen frequently but when it does happen it's annoying. If I would have paid more for it, it'd be incredibly upsetting. Otherwise, I would recommend this for someone younger; maybe a first smartphone for a preteen or teen that won't cost you too much.

UPDATE: Do not buy this phone, I have only had it for about 2 months now and it shuts down more and more. I've already had to do a master reset, and that was the last straw. I think if it wasn't a single core processor it would function better. I'll be buying a different phone soon than I had originally wanted.

HSN had this phone on sale for $99.95 plus I got 15% off for signing up for their email and then sold my old Kyocera Rise to a coworker, so phone only cost me about $40 total. It puts the Rise to shame hands down but it does have some quirks. I have had a couple apps crash and setting it up was a pain but so far so good. If you like a lot of apps, text a lot, or are a gamer than this phone will likely not be for you. Jelly Bean doesn't allow moving apps to SD card so you are stuck with a little over 2gb (operating system eats some of the 4gb total). Pretty silly considering I have a 64gb SD card with 59gb free. Stock Samsung keyboard is a little laggy for speed texters but you can try other options (again using some of your 4gb), I happen to be a slow typer so no problem for me. Processor is only 1.4ghz single core so gamers may want to bump up to the Victory for a few dollars more. All in all this phone suits me and my situation. Music sounds better than it did on Rise, the apps I use and internet are a bit faster, and it has a bigger screen and weighs a bit less so I am happy with it.

Rating this is hard because if you take 5 stars to mean say the iPhone 5s or Galaxy s4, well this one is maybe a 2.5. Then again this one costs $110 versus around $600 and $650 for those.

That is what I said about a year ago when it was new. Using this phone I found that I love having a smartphone and now that I understand how useful a tool they can be I wanted to do more with more apps then this low end phone can handle. That and I wanted a large screen due to the amount of time I ended up using it.

I lowered my rating to 3 stars simply because now for $150 and under you can get a much better phone locked in prepaid or even for about $200 could get a Moto X unlocked and use T Mobile. I ended up getting a Amazon Fire Phone for a crazy low price of $200 including a year of Prime and use Brightspot, T Mobile through Target, for the same $35/month I paid with Virgin. I'm very happy with a high end phone now.

Below is my original review of this phone.

For me the screen is a great size as it fits in my pocket with no issues.

The processor is fast but not multi core. There is a lag getting web pages open even on wifi but it is not bad. It only has 3g and the processor is fine for that speed. You'd really want dual core for 4g so you can see the speed benefit over the web. If you are wanting to be on the web a lot on your phone you would be happier with a dual core and 4g phone. For me this is fine.

Andriod versions are a bit odd in that the newest version is never on any phone for a while. This is 4.1 and that is the newest widely used Andriod version. Some phones like the s4 are beginning to have 4.2 now. The newest actually is 4.3 and that ought to be compatible with apps so this should be fine there.

I have no complaints whatsoever. This phone is awesome, the interface is intuitive and the screen is sharp. I would highly recommend this phone to any Virgin Mobile customer.

If you're looking for a high-performance phone or you are an avid smartphone user, then you should probably consider something else. However, if you're a new to smartphones, then it's a perfect starter for the price!

I read the bad reviews on this phone, and I was a little bit hesitant to get it but I bought it anyway. It's a pretty nice phone. It supports all of the new apps, has wifi, GPS, nice camera with flash, all for a VERY reasonable price. The only complaint I have is that it will crash every once in a while. This is my very first smartphone so I don't have anything to compare it to, and the crashing doesn't bother me much. I simply restart the phone and continue what I was doing. This doesn't happen very often, I'd say once every couple of months. So if that would annoy you, then I would recommend the Galaxy S3 or one of the other Galaxy devices for Virgin Mobile.

In a previous review someone mentioned that this phone gets bad cell reception. That is NOT true. It's not the phone that gets bad reception, it's the Virgin Mobile network that is somewhat lacking.

I had this phone for a year before switching to LG Volt. It's been a year since I've had the LG Volt and it's doing a lot better than the Samsung Galaxy Ring. The Galaxy Ring was great for about six or seven months before the battery life began to decrease. I would have to charge it far too often. After a month or so after the battery started to have less life, it began to randomly restart. I would be taking a picture or on an app and then suddenly it would restart. That didn't bother me at the time because I figured it only restarted because I hadn't turned it off in a while. Then it started to display messages that apps stopped working, including Google Play Services which was by far the worst (that would fail literally at least once a minute; I'm not exaggerating). That's when I decided to get a new phone. It could have been a battery problem causing all the failed apps and random restarts but I didn't really want to get a new battery only to later on have to get another battery. If you're looking for a short term phone, then this is good for that; but I highly suggest that you find something more reliable.
