    A HUGE improvement over the original Sol

    I HATE buying phones all the time. It gets expensive and setting things up can be a pain. But I decided to switch to Cricket form Virgin because Virgin is doing things I didn't like. Cricket has its limitations and restrictions but the coverage is a lot better. ANYWAYS the Galaxy Sol 2 is an awesome phone. I've only had it a full day and a half and I love it. I had the original Sol when it came out so I know how it works. and wow what an improvement. 16GB of space (about 9-10GB left to user. I thought this phone had dual Wi-Fi but it doesn't. Just 2.4GHz. But the awesome thing is that unlike the original Sol that had a very weak Wi-Fi antenna I'm very happy to say the Sol 2 has a VERY strong Wi-Fi antenna. Thank goodness. The LTE signal is also very strong. The 5MP rear cam takes very good pictures and has multiple resolutions. unfortunately the 5MP resolution is 4:3 not 16:9 but oh well. The 1080P rear video recording is awesome. auto focus works great without any issues. Video quality looks amazing. Sound quality is excellent. Maybe SOME tinnyness but who cares its a budget phone not a camera you take to a concert. Audio format from what I saw was 255kbps. That's excellent audio. The front 1.2MP cam takes pretty good pictures also and has a flash in the front. Well the screen completely lights up to simulate a flash. Pretty cool. Pictures aren't totally amazing but are decent. Phone runs on a 1.43GHZ ARM-Cortex A53 9 (NO IDEA what that means lol) and 1.5GB of ram. But the phone runs VERY smooth. No hiccups or random shut offs. No problems with internet. Also android 7.0 works amazing I LOVE the multiple app window portion of it. Pretty cool. The 2,600mAh battery lasts a long time as long as youre not a heavy user like me. I don't have a lot of apps. As for call quality its EXCELLENT. id rate it at a 8.5 to a 9 out of 10. People heard me VERY clearly without any problems and I could hear them without a problems. The speaker on the side is loud and awesome. Anyways I have a full review of this phone on my youtube channel just type in cricket wireless full review of the Samsung galaxy sol 2 and I'm gtx970. its a 20min review. Anyways hope this review helps.

    Pros Solid phone for the price. Bright clear display. Loud (you can hear outside). Droid 7.0. Batt lasts a full day of heavy usage. Made in 2017. Cons Tacky cosmic gold color shell. Lower res cams compared to more expensive Galaxy phones. No finger scanner. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the $350.+ Tier Galaxy phones. For the price and the cheaper prepaid plan options (compared to contract/lease phones)-- This is the perfect phone to buy.

    Good device for a modest user

    The device functions as expected most of the time. Definitely lags at time due to low RAM. Beware, however, of the screen -- the phone comes with a protector already applied to the screen and that protector scratches so incredibly easily. I have never seen a screen so easily and this is likely my tenth phone. If you can afford it, the S-series from Samsung is much faster and better ... but this is a decent budget device.

    Where to begin The unlock screen times out in less than 5 seconds. So if you take more than a few seconds to enter your unlock code, you've got problems If you use Google Play it will usually stop Google Maps navigation. Occasionally the screen will lock in landscape orientation When in use the battery loses charge very quickly Do yourself a favor and by a phone from BLU

    Had this phone for less than two weeks did a software update and it stopped working right. After the update my phone would get stuck on the cricket screen. Took the battery out several times and reset the phone still kept getting stuck on the same thing. Worked fine and was happy with the phone until I did the software update.

    I bought this phone for a friend because Cricket now has a great plan for unlimited data for 4 phones at only 100$ a month which is an awesome deal in my opinion so I got this phone at a fantastic price and my friend says she has had no problems with it at all and is an awesome phone.

    Works great with all my apps and great night view. I have not a single complaint. Didn't think anything would make me happy after my ZTE but I was wrong. Gold color is awesome, doesn't fade or show scratches. Very nice for formal moments away from home.
