Screen Quality: 7/10 - It's not an iPhone or HD screen, but it's crisp and clear
Weight: 9/10 - Had this in my pants pocket the whole time and barely notice it
Responsiveness: 8/10 - No noticeable delay. Had a few times where it took a few seconds for the screen to light up after pushing the power button
Camera: 7/10 - For a 3MP camera, it's not bad...
Call Quality: 8/10 - Was able to hear and the other party could hear just fine. The speakerphone was satisfactory, but wish it could be a little louder
Battery Life: 10/10 - Last 22 hours of normal use, over 4 days of standby
Build: 8/10 - Plastic housing, smooth finish, rounded corners, very easy to handle
Because I was using this as a travel phone, I really didn't use the data or watch YouTube much. The quality was okay, it worked, you could see the video but it's nothing spectacular.
If you're looking for a travel phone, this would be perfect; but as a permanent replacement every day use phone, I wouldn't want to use it (I have an HTC EVO, and looking at a 4.3 screen and having to deal with a 3.5 screen was pretty tough)
That said, this phone is slow for a smartphone. And this is my first but as time went on, it got progressively worse. I don't play games and I don't access fb through this. The apps i have are skype and finance tool and i got those when i first got the phone and i rarely use use them. I've used skype on the phone no more than 5 times. The memory isn't much but i got one of those amazonbasics micro sd cards so that isn't a problem.
The screen goes black just randomly even though i went to the settings to choose when i want it to go black. If i'm calling a company, by the time i'm done pressing 1 for such and such, it'll be black when i come to choose the next option.
I was on it this morning and it died.
Charged it but it wouldn't charge. Took battery out and put it back in and it came back on. Charged for a little bit and went out. Died 2hrs later and when i came back it will not charge.
It was great as an mp3 player but for the amount of money i paid for this, I was better off getting a regular sandisk player and $20 phone which is what i had prior to this and it worked well and was still working when i got this. Back to that i go.
UPDATE: I purchased this phone directly from amazon and NOT through a 3rd party seller and i called them about the warranty info and the customer service person i spoke to did not know the information about the warranty and asked me to call samsung international and ask what branch of samsung int'l is responsible for the warranty. And even when he offered to have me return the phone (after many holds and me getting irate), he couldn't tell me what refund I'll get. For anyone else who purchased through amazon, i found the warranty card and it's through Zeezoo. Their contact info is 1.954.570.3366 or 1.888.485.2355.
Update 11/30/12: I called Zezoo and they said to mail the phone in to see if they can fix it. They couldn't fix it so they offered me 3 phone options to chose from for replacement. I chose the galaxy y duos which is a newer phone and unlike this one, this replacement is the US version and received it yesterday. They were professional, courteous and surprisingly very easy to deal with. So I guess the warranty on amazon phones are good. The whole process took about 3weeks to send and receive replacement. Let's see how this new samsung holds up.
hope this helped.
Overall- the phone would be fantastic had it not been for the poor performance. Note: I was using the phone with a 32GB micro sd card; perhaps the phone has problems with large-sized cards. However, the manufacturer specifications say that you can use a 32 GB card.
