    Good Phone; METROPCS = bad service

    Posted

    This phone is good except for the short battrey life, which is 4-6 hours standby. If you wanna get scammed into a cheap plan go for it. You won't get much quality service. Also for $400 when I got it, the screen should've been AMOLED and not the cheap WVGA screen this phone has. MetroPCS has terrible customer service in store and on the phone. This phone was half the price 1 month later. They are all about the quick buck. Their buyer's remorse period is 7-14 days if you haven't used the phone for for more than 1 hour in talk time. If you have, you're s.o.l. Don't count on them for help if your accessories are damaged; even if it's under the 1 year warranty. They'll ultimately tell you to contact the Chinese manufacturer and treat you like a liar and say your broke the item even if you didn't. If you want real 4G LTE you'll have to pay for better quality like with Verizon. MetroPCS is the worst carrier in the nation. I'm in their 4G LTE coverage area but I never have full bars, and when I do it's in 3G mode. It also goes into roaming when I'm indoors in their 4G LTE coverage area. Consequently, I depend on Wi-Fi to go online. I am going back to Verizon and get an Iphone4 for less money than GhettoPCS's garbage service.

    Worst phone, why Samsung?

    The worst phone on the face of the planet. Don't buy this phone, save ur selfs from all the bad time. By the way, MetroPCS is a good service. But if ur in the market for a smart phone, not so great. Stay way from MetroPCS 4g. Its never on, sometimes the 4g is on for only a minute, then the service goes back to 2g. When the signal changes between 4g or 2g, 2g or 4g; your video stops, then u have 2 reload the video all over again. MetroPCS 4g is never truly unlimimted if its never on. After 3 years of MetroPCS, I'm not going back 2 a basic phone. And, I'm not stupid 2 sign a contract with anyone. Not going down that road again. By the way this phone has on battery life. Worst battery life. 3 hours stand by mode, half hour of Use. Sometimes the battery goes from 90% battery life, too 5% battery life in two minutes on stand by mode. Ever thing about this phone is bad news. Learn from me, Best Buy Mobile changed this phone 4 me 3 times.

    Awesome Phone, Not So Awesome Battery

    This phone is one thing FAST! it is faster than all the major carriers 3G and faster than all but Verizon's 4G, the camera and video recording are also really good. I love the TouchWiz on this device and it is perfect for those that have always wanted an Iphone but couldn't afford it. The Battery will only last around 5 hours however so be prepared for that, however in defense of this phone most android phones dont have the greatest battery and especially 4G LTE phones. All in all this is a great phone that is worth the price without a contract. you should definently buy this phone the battery issue is not that big of a deal.

    This phone is a disappointment. I purchased it in December of 2011, and ever since I bought it it's had a very bad battery life. It is impossible to make it through the day without it dying. I've tried battery saving apps and it does not help. The only way to keep this phone going all day is to either A. Keep it plugged in wherever you go, or B. Keep it on airplane mode and use it as needed. Not great for mobility at all! This is the only draw back that I found to this phone. I love the fact that I can use it as a modem, and I also love that I can download awesome apps from the android market. I live in Boston so the Metro PCS service is typically "4G". I'm happy that I purchased the buy back plan, because I'm ready for a new phone. I would not recommend this phone.

    Pretty good.

    First and foremost, this is NOT an IPhone, HTC Evo, or even a Galaxy S. That being said, it's a great phone if you're cheap (like me) and you don't want to sign up with one of those extortionists (AT&T.) For the price, you could do a lot worse. The phone is quick, sharp, and easy to maneuver and organize. However, it is rather clunky, the battery life SUCKS, and I don't find myself using the pullout keyboard as much as thought since the touch screen is pretty reliable. My 4G coverage can be spotty, but that goes with the terriotry with Metro, but usually I get good coverage. All in all, if you're looking for a cheap and reliable android phone, it's probably one of Metro's best and brightest.

    This phone is amazing and the Metropcs service is 100% niceeee.... I see all the reviews about this phone and what others said about the battery life. I was not really sure about how good it will be for my purpose. I had it for 1 1/2 month and so far sooo gooodddd... I'm going to buy one for my wife. Metropcs (Company), Samsung Indulge(Brand) and Android (OS), are all winners...........

    I bought this phone in october of 2011, OVER PRICED! metro has way better phones for a fraction of the price. When I first bought it, it was cool but after a week I started having second guesses. It cant even you last you night uncharged. Now it freezes constantly, the GPS is horrible, I'm always tempted to smash it on the floor every time it gives me problems. Long story short, DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. I REPEAT DONT BUY THIS PHONE!

    phone looks great and offers great features, however, fails to delivery in the performance area. My phone keeps locking up, Samsung says the phone is bullet proof, but it isn't!! My phone has been replaced (3) times and still locks up-DON'T SPEND THE MONEY!!!, you are better off with a 3-g android phone

    The Samsung Indulge is a fairly good entry level prepaid Android phone...but BEWARE that the phone carrier has lousy coverage and service! I gave up on this phone carrier after 3 months and switched back to one of the major phone carriers.
