My iPhone XR suddenly got broken so I got this as a survival phone. Overall it works more than its price. Only the default Samsung keyboard was not smooth enough to type compare to iPhone, but installing Google keyboard solved it.
I got this phone a few days ago and everything seemed to be fine. Calls were good, text messages were good, wifi connection was strong, fingerprint was so so, facial recognition was OK, etc. Once I left the house I couldn't connect to anything web based although calls ant texts worked fine. While I was out today, I went by the t-mobile store to see what they could tell me. Turns out the problem is internal and this phone will only connect to the 2g network. That's why calls and texts work but no data. I have a replacement coming so we'll see how that one works. If the situation improves I'll post an update.
Ps. It only came with a non US charger.
UPDATE: Well, this phone turned out to be a real swing and a miss. My second phone did the same thing. Back in the box it went to be returned. I went to the blue and yellow big box electronic store and purchased an unlocked Motorola phone. What do you know...that one worked. Same sim card, same phone number, same carrier, same plan, and the data part of the phone worked. Proof that the problem lied with the Samsung phones.
The phone itself seemed fine it allows the set up process my issue is the phone is Listed as a 128G 4G LTE but it's a International Version and will not work on the US. It is not compatible with the 4-5G Network that's coming February 2022... I'm on Cricket Mobile Network and I have Xfinity Mobile Network as well and neither can activate this Device.
ok this Phone has a Massive 128 an its Wonderful its not the Fastest snail in the Bunch but its not Slow by any means i have yet to test the Face Recon. though the Finger Print Scanner is Fast and responsive. the only bad thing i can say about this after having it for over a mouth now is the Limited Cases (not the silicon or custom cases) the Otter Box Style cases. not many that i have been able to find an mostly black
Este Celular Vino Con Una Grave Falla De RECEPCIÓN, Aparte Ya Tiene Más De Un Día Hábil La Devolución De Mi Dinero Cuando Me Afirman Que Solo Tardaban De 2 A 4 Horas En Hacerse Efectivo El Dinero En Mi Wallet De Gifs Card De Amazon, Estoy Muy Decepcionado Por Está Arbitrariedad
It is sketchy, I had quite a bit of trouble with Straight Talk to get it to work with 1 out of 2 SIM types and it's actually CDMA Verizon NOT GSM Compatible, this is ALL due to its African origins yes an unlocked dual sim phone outta Africa, and we all should know how that goes... Dual SIM messes everything up and should immediately be banned...
It has trouble even still staying connected to the network even though I got it working 80% of the time. Have to power cycle or turn off for 30 minutes at least to get it to fully concentrate. I tried to load a 101 min video on YT and it froze the phone then bricked the connection.
IDK I shouldnt trust international sellers but as we all can see it's a 128gb/4gb version of the lamer U.S. 32/3gb version which makes a huge gaming difference. Yet some simpler graphics games fail to load while more complex graphics games run well, peculiar as well.
The Camera is really good and everything else is fine just finding the right carrier for BYOP is always a mess.
I got this for my BF about 2 weeks ago after he lost his phone skiing. He’s still settling into it but seems to be pleased. I took a picture of the little warning postcard that comes with the phone showing which networks it is NOT compatible with. I thought this would be helpful for USA phone seekers.
