Very Bad Phone from Samsung

Maine ye phone 5 month pahle liya tha. jab se liya hai tab se ro raha hun ki yeh kya kabada le liya. chahe to micromax ka phone le lena par ye phone mat lena. iska key pad bahut hi bekar hai. software bar bar gayab ho jata hai. after sale service bilkul bekar hai. samsung ke engineer isko theek nahi kar pate hain. computer se connectivity to hoti hi nahi. duniya ka sabse bekar phone hai.

Mixed Bag

Thanks to Flipkart's for giving a chance to re post my reviews as I made some wrong assessments before using it fully.

I bought this phone few days back from a retail store as my primary calling phone.

Pros:

Phone look wise its good, big display, big fonts with Kies support to backup contents

Call quality is good.

Most importantly the build quality: superb, back panel is SS, so no issues with scaling of paint finish due to scratches and mishandling etc.

Cons:

Mainly signal levels are variing always like any other CDMA phone but on…

DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE

I have bought this phone 2 weeks ago, its has lots of disadvantages over advantages.
Pros: 1. Large screen and bright display
2. Dual SIM active at the same time

Cons:
1. Music Player does support Back-Ground Music Play, So you can't do any work with listening Music.
2. No separate Wallpaper for two different SIM, so you may confused which one is primary, because icon is not very clear.
3. Each time of switch SIMs, you have to press buttons at least
3 times to switch network, because each time you have to save the primary network, which is very emb…

GOOD CDMA-GSM mobile

since no other branded CDMA-GSM dual phone is avaiable in market so i purchased it.... and it is not only good phone but in fact it is very good...

Please do not expect the kind of features which are available in single GSM phone in 6000 budget, its main advantages- dual with CDMA and GSM.


the only problem with this phone is- no background music.
