The phone is absolutely gorgeous, as stated the back is a huge fingerprint magnet for sure. The screen is beautiful, with very vibrant colors (duh, AMOLED). People wanna bash onot the batterm because it's not removable and down on MaH from the Note 4, but it gets me through the day without an issue and I couldn't ask for more. The camera is what everyone says it is, the best on the market, it's amazing what it can do and the quality of pictures it takes. Now I will admit that I've been an AVID hater on TouchWiz, with bad past experiences (Note 3), but Samsung has done a great job with the newest iteration, and I have to say I'm very impressed. Overall this phone is a BEAST, anyone second guessing the purchase, just do yourself a favor and just give it a shot...you won't be disappointed.
Great screen and hardware. Wouldn't have minded if they bumped it to 5.2 8 or 5.9 inches. Will accept the smaller battery in exchange for rapid charging and wireless charging. Great, responsive camera. Nice upgrade from the 4 if you're ok with losing external memory... Samsung gives you free cloud storage.
This phone is wonderful and it shows by the fact this phone is number one people's choice. Even though people talk about the galaxy phone this one to meet is the best out right now.
Damn, I want the Note 5... even willing to pay full price. I just can't justify it... sure the phone is "slightly" faster.. and has 4 gigs of RAM.. and the S pen is a bit better, but with no SD slot and no removable battery I am finding it hard to justify the expense. The Note 4 phone was one terrific upgrade. Hell, I still haven't explored all the options available on the Note 4. Everything is exceptional including the camera... screens change very quickly.... and the S pen is a major upgrade from the Note 3. Help me someone, tell me your experience with the Note 5 and why I should upgrade.
This is the best company for long distance. I been with them for over 10 years, and have never had a problem with them. My mother is also with them. We have never had a problem. you also get a low bill. I have to call my son every day. and it is below $10.00 a month. You can't beat that.
Good feel in hand on first touch. But easy slipping away on real life with out good grip case. Looking so exclusive and elegant. Grossly glass body make it shinny and solid strong than plastics SAM on the past. Touch-Wiz is diet and slim flow on fast lane of Android. Thumb you up guy Note5.
Every time I get a new phone it seems it's the best one ever so no change with the Note 4. This time it may be for longer though. The display is fantastic, I married into Samsung Android some time ago and love it. The pen: how did I ever live without it. The size is perfect. Looking at the reviews of the 5 I think I may save myself some money and stay with the(current) best phone ever
If you can get past their generally bad customer service, Tracfone is reliable and won't cost you a lot per month. Even if you use your cellphone A LOT they have monthly plans that are a lot cheaper than the big carriers. So, you get the reliability of the big carriers without the high monthly charge. You don't have to put up with Tracfone's el cheapo phones. If you have an unlocked CDMA phone (Verizon or Sprint), you can bring it with you. But, it will probably take Tracefone five business days to get the SIM card to you. And, if you have an iPhone, they'll probably screw up and send you a standard/micro SIM instead of the Nano that iPhones use so it'll take at least another five business days to get the correct one to you. Yes, their customer service is THAT bad and they appear to be very low-tech. You can get an unlocked Verizon Galaxy S3 for $150 or an iPhone 5S from $300 on ebay. You have to decide whether you want to pay $45 per month for a Verizon prepaid plan for Verizon's customer service or pay much less with Tracfone and it's lousy customer service. Personally, I prefer Tracfone's prices and since they use Verizon's network, the service itself is just as good. Also, you carryover minutes with Tracfone and get no carryover at all from Verizon. Currently, I have something like 48 hours saved up with Tracfone and my plan won't expire for a year so I pay nothing for a year. Their lousy customer service is just something to endure. Once you get past it, you're fine.
Just dumped Verizon. I got tired of being a loyal 8 year customer paying about 170 for 2 lines and watching TV ads offering 4 lines for a $100 to everyone and anyone. Why didn't I get a call saying 'hey loyal customer we are going to lower your rate'? I researched Cricket for a couple of weeks and made the switch last week. Store and reps were very helpful and the port over process worked with no issues. Data was copied over with no issues however there were a couple of contacts that didn't make it. No biggie. I have plenty of 'bars' and everything works as well as when I was with the big V. The biggest reason to try Cricket is there are NO contracts. I can cancel anytime and I like being able to shop and save. I'm not paying for a massive marketing campaign. All I want to do is make phone calls, send a txt, read the web now and then. I'm saving $80 a month for the same service!!
battery is here and there but get me home with almost 5 hour of on screen time 13 hours but next year just go up on process or ram and 3200 mah so one can get 6 and a half on screen and perfect of its back to lg
One of my phones with AT&T was off contract a few months ago so I decided why not try this Defense Mobile service. It's prepaid without contracts so there was really no risk. I ended up being very surprised by the service I got! I was expecting it to be just another prepaid phone company. Turns out this a company that's competing with the Big Dogs (ATT, VZ, T-mo etc) but at the price of Cricket! I have the same exact coverage I used to have, better service and pay a fraction of the price. I am going to pay the early termination fees on my other lines because I just don't want to deal with AT&T anymore and I save enough here to make up for it. Plus my kids think its so cool to have it say "DEFENSE" or "MARINES" on their phones instead of "AT&T" (I do too...). If you're eligible for this service and not taking advantage of it, you're doing something wrong. James S. SSgt USMC Ret
I switched from ATT to Defense Mobile back in January and have had a great experience so far. I pay about half of what I paid for on ATT, with the same exact coverage and more LTE data. I love the mission of the company and cannot get over the quality of their customer service. I try not to call customer service as much as I can with other companies (spending hours talking to a call center in India is not a great use of my time). With Defense Mobile, I actually enjoy talking to the reps! They are all Veterans and are eager to help in any way they can - which is really refreshing. If you're hesitant about Defense Mobile, don't be. They are the real deal and are offering a level of service that extremely rare in this industry.
Boost provides affordable voice and data service and if you shop around you can get a great phone for a good price (EBAY buy new). Go Moto G best value in android class. Moto G uses 3G but I don't need LTE speed 3G speed does just fine. I save a few bucks by not using the LTE network. Seldom if ever do I have dropped call. 3G data works great in Seattle and surrounding areas. I have two family members on boost and all is good.
This phone just obliterates the competition. The build quality is so superior to the horrible plastic LGs and other ghetto devices. The software is a lot smoother too. No resets or black screens. Camera is awesome. I'd like to see better battery life but hey, what else is new?
I love the phone its beautiful but I did find it quite easy to scuff up the aluminum, which was kind of a downer because it's a beautiful phone. Everything that is supposed to work on the phone works fantastically , don't have lap top? doesn't matter the size and sound of this phone makes it more than capable of streaming movies , enjoyably which can't be said for all the flags ships out. The battery life is a little less than what I expected but, with great reviews of the up coming update it's hopeful to change. The camera does need a little bit of play to focus, mind you the trade off for the speakers is worth it believe me ( might not even be a trade off with the new update) . If you want a phone for social media, and pictures this may not be the phone for you, but if you want a phone that is pretty much a complete entertainment hub, then this is the one for you.
This phone is awesome and one of the best phones out right now. Love the sound and build. The customization of sense 7 is top of the line. I'm not understanding why it doesn't get the kudos it deserves but if you are looking for a great smartphone get this.
My Wife and I have been with Tracfone for over 15+ years. This was my first Android and I realized I didn't understand nothing about it. I will agree with most of the comments concerning Customer Service it can seem very poor at times. Remember this is a "Cheap Carrier". Once you get that all worked out you have a nice basic android. This Phone has always worked perfect for my Wife and I. Some massive changes to my phone have been made it is a true custom device. You can tweak these phones and have features that only come with the "High End Devices". Oh!!! I almost forgot it's "Free" and very easy to figure out. Once you figure out how to ""Root"" this Phone you can customize it to the Max. You are only limited by your own imagination and the modules(50+)that are available for your device which is running 4.1.2 JellyBean. You can put a 32GB SDcard in this phone which I did and make sure you get the Series '10' Super Ultra 32GB Card. It will cost more but will be worth it when you are looking for speed while using your device. First off ""Root"" this phone then D/L SuperUser SU. Then D/L Root Checker it will tell you if the device has "Root". I used TowelRoot <--(Look up on YouTube) it's very simple and you don't need a PC. Go to the Xposed Module Site and D/L Xposed Module Installer <--(Look up on YouTube) once that is done you have access to all the Modules that will work for your device. Go to the Xposed Module Repository and have fun customizing your device. XDA Developers Web Site has so much information about Android and anything you can think of concerning "Root" and they are very friendly and helpful. PS.. I am a Senior Citizen 6 Months ago I didn't even know what a Android was much less how to use it. If I can do this you can too.

Just ported over from virgin mobile and so far I'm pleased. I took the offer for the free after rebate Nokia 530 and the flat 35$ a month after auto pay plan. I plan on upgrading phones at the end of the year when new Windows 10 phones come out as there should be lots of options with AT&T's selection of phones that can also be used on Crickets service since they are owned by AT&T and used there Cell towers. After my phone arrived by UPS it was a snap to set up online. I called customer service to change my account pin number for personal preference and it was no problem. Customer service was outsourced to country outside the US and the Agent seemed to be reading from a script for everything but she was pleasant enough, easy to understand, and handled my request as needed. So far I am pleased with Cricket. My signal and coverage has improved and I will save a few dollars a month with the flat 35$ a month plan. They also have a referral program as other reviewers here have noted. If your take referral within your first month of service you receive 25$ as does the referrer. This is my personal referral link. Please use and help the both of us make some money, Thanks! https://mycricket.sparkrefer.com/5D63kGc
Let's start with the memory, have the 16GB model, where at my Nexus this always has been more than sufficient at an iPhone it's to little leading to uninstalling apps. The phone it self is of good quality and if you have a Nexus easy to get used to. Though test show it might be a little slower than the Galaxy S6 I doubt that, great device working well. If I had to chose again would by it without hesitation. No doubt like using it a lot.
I was a back and forth (iPhone to Android flagship) kinda guy for a couple of years. All of a sudden, I got tired or bored with buying phones every few months, and I was ready to settle down. I richly enjoyed the various tools, and the bells and whistles on the Android flagships (for a little while at least when I was a tinkerer), but for the most part, my every day phone usage became fairly subdued and content-oriented. So, hardware-wise, considering what I valued (and with the larger iPhone 6 Plus release) I began to consider the iPhone to be on par with Android flagships like the Samsung Galaxies. The thing that had given Android handsets the slight hardware edge over the past few years for me, they're starting to phase out (replaceable batteries and SD card slots). Ultimately, it was the promise of Apple Pay expansion that got me to cross back over to permanent iPhone usage...plus, I also have both a Mac and iPad now, and it made sense to get a simplified, synchronized platform experience going. Apple's latest iOS versions have also leveled the playing field over the past couple of years as well. Additionally, in this era of surveillance on citizens, I became more convinced of the Apple security approach than those of the collective Android manufacturers. iPhone is still not perfect. My biggest gripe is with apps like the Music app. I used Power Amp on Android, and nothing beats it on any mobile platform. What's so hard about getting missing album art and offering a 10-band graphic EQ? How the company that revolutionized the mp3 player has fallen so far behind in music app software, i'll never understand. The iPhone music app is comparably horrible. Also, Apple has the annoying practice of limiting options like not allowing the setting of Google Maps as the default map app. Lastly, I've accepted that bugs are a natural part of software with any platform. At least I know that iOS updates will be more timely than manufacturer and carrier constrained updates for Android, and that it will usually address anything that i'm experiencing. Overall rating i'll give the iPhone 6 Plus is a 4/5...it's the same rating that i've given top Android handsets in the past.
