    Basic Smartphone, Cheap Replacement

    I needed a replacement for my flip-phone that *suddenly* started to die after nearly 10 years of service... I had to go to an AT&T store to turn it on because my old sim was a different size. My existing plan was no longer offered so when it turned on a $60 data plan was tacked on to basic service ($50). The AT&T store was able to find a voice+data plan that was just $10 more than my old plan... yaay! The phone is not the fastest, the highest resolution, nor the most-featured. Still, it does most everything an $800 phone will do. It takes decent pictures and has filters and performance settings, but no movies. WiFi is 2.4 GHz only. If you change time zones the phone stays in the original time zone (be careful when setting the alarm!). The included weather app will keep the correct time for the place you select (hopefully where you are standing... :) ). The included Samsung Internet, texting, email, calendar and voicemail apps all work well. Actually, the apps are better suited for a smartphone than Google apps, IMO. The only annoying thing is that the screen brightness does not change with the environment - it's a manual adjustment.

    Great Budget Phone

    Posted

    I have the original Galaxy Express Prime for about a year now. I really like it for the price I paid. With the exception of the camera. I am writing the review because they are calling this the Galaxy Express Prime 2 and doubling the price. I bought mine on sale for $65. For that price it is a great budget phone. For $130 not so much. At the current asking price there are many other phones with equal or better specs now to compare. The reviews state price as a plus/pro but how can price be a plus when it is the same phone only updated to 7.0 that previously sold for half the price. It only has 16Gb of memory and a 5 mp camera. Which is okay for the previous price tag but not so much at the current asking price. Why did Samsung raise the price one might ask? Check it out and compare if you doubt.

    Not sure what phone the reviewers were using because the Samsung 8 I bought is probably the worst phone I've ever used in terms of ease of use. The sequence of clicks needed to get from point A to point B is rediculously long and illogical. The side menu feature randomly brings up pages other than the apps I've put there. the voice to text can't understand English and phonetically spells even simple common words. the Selective Focus feature requires a tripod to work based on how long you have to hold the camera still for each "shot". And of course, because the 15day buyers remorse period is over for me I'm stuck for at least a year. Recommendation: Unless you like constantly redoing settings, are really careful how you handlle the "edge" so that you don't trigger another app and lose whatever you are doing and you like sending voice to text messages in an alien tongue. don't get the Samsung 8

    I was a Windows phone user from the time they came out but strongly disliked the phone from the time I got it. I switched to this phone because it could be used on my AT&T service or be used as a prepaid phone. I use it as a contract phone but since it can also be used as a prepaid you don't need to renew with a two year contract. The phone is the same as the Galaxy S3 and as I am getting accustomed to it I like it a lot better than the windows phone. Great phone for the price. However, it does take some getting use to and the manual is over 150 pages if you print it out. Also, moving your contacts can be tricky and they need a little tweaking when you do it.

    Beautiful Display

    I love the beautiful display. I was concerned about it at first since my former phone was a Galaxy Express 3 (a painfully crowded 8 Gigabit memory go phone but.. It had a beautiful Amoled display. This is TFT and my glowing flowers still glow from within. Awesome. Nice and roomy with this Galaxy Express Prime 2 phone. My apps can update without me having to lift a finger. It has a magnet meter for compass apps that my previous phone did not have.

    As this was the third phone in 3 weeks . I think I finally found a Go phone that works for me. The other two were a different brand and they didn't even last two days. I've dropped this a couple times and it still survived. I have an OtterBox now for it so it should be better phone calls are clear texting is easy takes okay pictures nothing too write home about but you can have a picture on there internet connection is decent. It also works with my phone plan so,all is cool.

    the whole phone is a better feel, build, program etc over prime express 1. . its like stepping from consumer to pro. love not having ongoing plan. 22 gig plan i never have to worry about my speed in my professional work. though i didnt realize until i got it that the standard J3 case has different location for audio TRS jack. so i had to re-purchase the proper case and screen cover (camera on opposite side. LOVE the phone. camera decent. though only gripe is camera settings are limited and not easy to navigate.

    I had a Samsung note4 and after 2 years it would not hold a battery, even after I replaced the battery. I wanted another Samsung phone so BestBuy could replace and switch my info, including pics without losing anything and to stay my ATT plan. I did not want to purchase an expensive $800 plus phone. This was great, the manager in the phone dept at the Rockwall store was able to do this and it has worked great for me and saved me tons of money.
