An unlocked phone for Straight Talk is a cell phone that can be used with any compatible carrier, including Straight Talk. An unlocked phone typically has more resale value than a locked phone, and it gives the user more freedom to choose their carrier and plan.
New contract not required! (You can use it with your own plan just insert your sim card) You Need to have your own Sim Card. Compatibility with MVNO carriers such as Boost Mobile, Straight Talk and Cricket may vary.
Phone has good ESN/IMEI (was not reported lost or stolen).
I received the Note 9 in 2 days. The screen, back cover and sides of the phone were in pretty good condition. After turning on the phone and trying it out for 20 minutes it started having a greenish tint on the screen.
I tried all the various settings I could find, blue light filter, always on display, adaptive brightness, and a few others, but the green tint and lines would randomly show up. Any time the greenish tint issue was occurring the phone would get hot in a few minutes (5 or so).
Turning the screen off and back on would sometimes correct the issue. Researching the greenish tint issue , I found that it is a well known problem that apparently started after an update that came out in February.
I tried several of the fixes the were suggested but none of them worked, though the most effective was to turn on the always on display option. It was disappointing that Samsung had not corrected the issue which affects many of their phones with AMOLED screens.
Samsung has acknowledged the issue. Interestingly it does not affect all note 9s or galaxy 9s. It seems to be a software issue, because if the screen comes on without the green tint it will stay on for an hour or more and work perfectly.
Also I can turn the screen off and back on after 5 seconds and often the issue will be gone. It was also disappointing that the company shipped me a phone with this issue. However there is a good chance they didn’t know about problem.
I ordered another note 9 from another company and it has worked fine so far. However I have not allowed it to update to the latest update. I have returned this phone.
I wanted to upgrade from my ancient Motorola that I got for free when I started my cell service. All the hype about Samsung phones sounded great. First I tried a Note 8 and it just couldn’t find the Verizon network or wifi signals.
Traded it for a Note 9 which is supposed to be much better. Same problem. Today I was in a large city with lots of cell towers. The phone still could not find Verizon even though I could see the tower a few yards away.
I’ve tried every fix I could find on the internet. No change. To even post this review I had to use my old Motorola which is a little sluggish but still finds cell and wifi signals. I’m looking at the Note 9 right now and it still says there is no connection.
The Note 9 is great to look at, has a beautiful display and a great camera. But it can’t place a phone call which was the whole point of buying a phone. Since this is the second Samsung phone I have had in less than a month and they both had the same issue I don’t think I’m going to waste money on another one.
Features: coming from a note 8 user, there is not much difference except for what the S Pen can do. I rarely use the S Pen Air Actions, i feel that it is unnecessary for me but maybe useful in the future when most apps become compatible with air actions.
I love the Translate tool the most from my S Pen as living in multi-racial country, i am able to translate languages (especially Chinese words) into English with ease. Bixby can be helpful too in live translation with the use of the rear camera but you’ll need the subject to be bright enough for more accurate live translation.
AR Doodle: pffft it’s only accurate when i use this outdoor. But then again it’s not why i got this phone and it’s definitely something that i don’t need at the moment. Perhaps it will be useful in the future.
Performance: well, all i can say is that it’s faster than my Note 8. And i love the fact that the minimum internal storage is 256gb (Note 10 series) compared to 64gb (Note 8). Screen displays better colors too.
As a photographer, color accuracy is very important to me. Although there is a slight difference when i compared it with my 100% srgb computer monitor, it’s minimal. Cameras’ performance – not very happy.
The highlights can be too strong and most of the time pictures appear flat unless i use the Pro mode. Note 10 plus main competitor is the iphone 11 pro max – the main cameras on these two are basically almost the same but why are the images produced on the iPhone look more natural (true to life colors)? If there is no fix to this i’d really rather carry my Fuji X-T3 with me wherever i go for quality pictures.
Gaming wise, no complaints. Design: no major complaints. I only wished the rear cameras were placed in the center as my fingers tend to block them. I guess Samsung have their reasons. Value: this is tough to evaluate.
Price tag? Well it’s quite alright even though it can be expensive for most of us malaysians who want to purchase the phone off the shelves rather than signing a package with a telco company. As long as you don’t drop the phone, i bet it can last for a very long time.
This is an overpowered phone to be honest and it is considered cheap compared to an iphone 11 pro max which doesnt even have a pen. Lastly, I can’t wait for the android 10 update to become available for this phone and hoping for more exciting new features.
Designed for the way you live, the Galaxy A50 is the smartphone you’ve been looking for. Go all day and into the night with a high-capacity, long-lasting, fast-charging battery. Capture life’s moments exactly the way you want to remember them with the Galaxy A50 multi-lens camera.
I purchased the SG A50 to replace my SG J7 Sky Pro (bought in July 2017) which was still working ok after I replaced the battery 9 months ago. I received the SG A50 on 29Nov20, so today is day 4 since I’ve been using it – this is also why I gave 4 stars cause its too early to say its perfect.
Transferring my phone number was easy, and transferring my apps and files were easier with the Smart Switch app. I was amazed how quick it was to transfer everything to my new phone. it was all done in ~ 35 minutes.
I read some reviews that said the speaker was not very loud, however, it is very loud to me. For the price, storage, features & capabilities, this phone was a great purchase during the black friday sale @ $150.
I’m amazed at how much this phone does. I did have an issue where the auto-rotate messed up for a few minutes, so I restarted the phone, and its been working great. The battery lasted 24 hours on one charge yesterday – I literally used it all day.
by midnight it was at 24%. It does charge fast with the charger it came with; I also purchased 5 chargers, 2 car mounts and a case with a ring stand from Amazon. all were very affordable at less than $30.
I have not tried out the biometrics (face/ fingerprint) login, cause I Iove using a PIN. It recognizes the wave of your hand to take selfies. The camera is good. The clock can be set to speak the time when the alarm goes off.
Family members have been trying to get me to switch to the iPhone for years, but I refuse. My budget is to spend no more than $200 every 3 years on a new phone, and Samsung allows me to do this below my budget.
The A50 provides a lot of features/capabilities, and I was surprised when I received updates from Samsung because Straight Talk had updates turned off in the past. Hopefully, I’ll be able to receive future updates.
Fingers crossed! I recommend this phone cause it exceeded my expectations. I also researched phones for months before choosing the A50. So far, I’m a satisfied customer!.
I bought this phone from Straight Talk about 3 weeks ago and I love it! For the money it is one of the best budget-oriented smartphones you can buy today. I upgraded from a tired, broken Apple iPhone 6 that was a hand-me-down when I got it 4 years ago and slowly started to fall apart over time, living a rough life as I was a mechanic at the time.
This phone was super easy to adjust to coming from iOS and the Samsung One UI is very user-friendly. I am very impressed with the come-up Android has had since I last used an Android, back with my Galaxy S5.
Getting signed into your Google account was a breeze and having unlimited photo storage is awesome. I used their desktop app to sync and backup all my pictures and I can access them anytime I want. The phone has 64gb of onboard storage which is plenty for this day and age, and features a Micro SD expansion slot for up to 512gb of additional storage.
The phone itself is very handsome and sleek, the back battery cover being an iridescent blue that changes colors depending on the light hitting it, which reminded me of the old SVT Cobras. The phone itself is quite big and commands a decent heft, but feels good in your hands.
I do not recommend using this phone daily without a case as the back cover is very slippery. The only buttons on the phone are on its right side and you can control the volume and turn the phone on or off.
Pressing the volume down and power buttons at the same time captures whatever is on your screen at the moment. There is also a 3. 5mm headphone jack on the bottom of the phone, which is a novelty in this day and age as most handsets have removed this feature.
The Galaxy A50 features a GORGEOUS 6. 4″ AMOLED display that goes from edge to edge. The colors are vibrant, the blacks pop out and the display is excellent for watching movies. It also has a built in fingerprint scanner.
Another big selling point to the Galaxy is that it has a powerful 25mp front camera and a triple camera setup on the back (25mp wide angle, 8mp ultrawide, 5mp depth sensor) that is capable of some AMAZING photos, day or night.
I have yet to take a bad picture with this phone. Even in pitch black darkness I was still able to get crisp clear photos of my black sports car. Video recording is sub-4K but the quality is very good especially given its low price point.
Battery life on this phone is amazing, I use my phone all day everyday for work and for home enjoyment and I can go two days without having to charge my phone. It has a 4,000 mAh battery. The processor on this phone is fast but not quite on par with the newer Pixels and iPhones i’ve tried.
It’s still quite capable of doing a lot at the same time (Facebook Messenger while playing games, etc) Charging comes via USB type C which allows the phone to go from a low charge to an all-day usable charge in no time at all.
I was blown away. All in all I would say for the price, this phone is hard to beat, offering flagship model features and performance at a budget price. If you are like me and appreciate the value in Samsung’s new budget phones, you don’t have to cut corners anymore.
This phone is perfect for the working-class person who wants a Pixel or an iPhone but can’t afford to buy one outright/unlocked.
I went from the S6 to the A50 because of the price of getting another S series. I have owned this for several months. The phone is ok but it does not touch my old S series phone. Shortly after I purchased it, it would randomly shut down and come back on.
The rear camera for recording is not as good as even the S6 and several models of the S series have already been released. It took a little bit to get use to because of layout but that was no big deal.
Recently, I have been having issues with the auto rotate on the A50. It takes several attempts at making it rotate before it does what I want. Also, this is the first “Walmart” phone that I purchased.
In the past, I always purchased unlocked phones and used them with Straight Talk. Walmart electronics are known to be missing some components because they are marketing them as “cheap. ” I cannot help but wonder if the problems come from the phone model or if it is because it was made cheaper or a combination of the two.
I would definitely go with one of the S series phones over this phone anyday.
The Straight Talk Galaxy S7 G930VL LTE is the smartphone your life can’t do without. It’s big on screen and slim on profile. And with an IP68 rating that protects it from spills, splashes and even dunks, you can forget about searching the internet for magical solutions to dry out your smartphone.
Just wipe if off and keep going. When the sun sets and the fun starts, the world’s first dual pixel smartphone camera makes capturing low-light photos a breeze. No more photos where your awesome night out with friends looks like blurry shapes in a cave.
And stop waiting around for your phone to charge. With fast wireless charging, the Straight Talk Galaxy S7 powers up from 0 to 100 percent in no time. Plus deciding which photo album to scrap just so you can add something new is now a distant memory.
With expandable memory you can add up to 200GB to keep the content you love, and keep adding to it.
What I wanted was a real Windows Phone, not the awful thing that Balmer had on the market, and I wanted it in the size of a 2014 Samsung Core Prime. Left with a choice between Google and Apple, I chose Google and the Android.
As for size, the newest thing I could find that was even remotely close to the Core Prime form factor was this refurbished 2016 S-7. So the specs aren’t very good, but it’s the best fit I could find.
Out of the box you really couldn’t tell that it wasn’t new. There were no scratches or other indications that it had ever been used. So maybe it an NOS job. Whatever, certainly the condition was better than advertised, which is a real plus.
The Android system software level was quite far behind, and it is on its 4th push update at the moment. As for pre-installed apps, between Verizon, Google, and Samsung, the push on apps is super in-your-face aggressive – especially with Yelp.
It’s going to take a while to get it cleaned out and have it settle down with only what I want on it, assuming that is achievable at all. So am I happy with it? Not really, but it is as close as I could come to what I wanted, which isn’t very close.
For what it is, it’s pretty good. I would give it a C+.
By far the worst phone in existence and should be recalled and destroyed. Why in the world do I have a VR app on my smartphone that even when disabled uses 36% of my battery if not more on avaerage after every charge? I have to diable and force stop the app everytime I turn the phone on and use it for awhile then check back to see what this random VR app is up to and oh hey 40% of my battery is used from a disabled app.
Oh and now my phone is 240 degrees and i could cook an egg on the screen. This phone has shut down more times from overheating then any electronic devices I have ever seen in my life. Pure trash. Not to mention if you set this phone anywhere but your pocket it will slide for no reason.
P. S. you can not uninstall this app. “Gear VR Service” only disable but it does not stop ever even after force stopping the app. and disabling.
I’ve had a Galaxy S7 since the year it came out, and I’m super impressed with how long it’s lasted. I use it pretty much all-day every day, and it’s still holding up extremely well (aside from some slowness and outdated software).
I’m amazed that it’s been able to last five years with all the stuff I’ve put it through, like the countless number of times I’ve dropped it, or how scuffed up the screen gets in my bag; it’s incredible how well-built and durable this phone is during everyday use.
And somehow I still haven’t cracked the screen or the back glass yet! Now my major issue with this phone is it’s lack of storage space. With only 32GB of internal storage, it can fill up pretty fast, but luckily this can easily be solved by buying a micro SD card, which most flagships don’t have the option to do that now.
I’d also like to mention how nice the camera is. For being a 2016 phone, the camera is surprisingly good, nowhere near S21 Ultra quality, but still impressive. The 5. 1″ screen is also very nice, despite that being considered “small” nowadays, I personally find it to be a perfect size; although granted I have small hands.
Overall, an amazing phone. Though I recommend buying a newer flagship.
You can’t live without water or your smartphone, which is why the Galaxy S7 has a certified water-resistant rating. It repels spills, splashes and even dunks without a bulky protective case. Running out of memory shouldn’t be a thing.
So if 32GB isn’t already enough, you can add an additional 200GB with a microSD card. No clouds, no hard drives. The Galaxy S7 features big screen in incredibly slim design that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand.
the S7 that I bought is an older model phone, but I had one that was still working fine, just had a cracked the screen. It was cheaper to buy this one than have screen fixed. When the phone arrived, it was not in original packaging, I have purchased 3 of these over the years, so I know this was not a new phone despite it begin advertiesed as a new phone.
The phone worked fine except wireless charging does not work, I tried every solution I could find on line to troubleshoot wireless charging but nothing worked. I decided to not return due to the expense and hassel.
I will never buy from this vendor again and will also consider other options than walmart next time.

I bought this to replace an identical 6S that had broken. The phone arrived in great condition but…. The battery is truly AWEFUL. The battery health was at 82%. Which is to be expected from an older phone.
However the phone it replaced, an exact same model and age, had reported a 75% battery health. The older phone could run for a good 6-8 hours of active use before dying. This refurbished phone, with the better battery health, dumps its entire charge in a whopping 30 minutes.
The T-Mobile rep activating my phone was stunned while he watched in real time as the phone went from 63% to 33% to DEAD in the course of about 3 minutes. And this was after a full 12 hours of uninterrupted charging.
This was while it did nothing but have messages open, no other apps on, with screen brightness on like 10%. Either this company tampered with the original battery to display fake health values, or they replaced the original battery with a significantly inferior one likely not rated for this phones normal power needs.
Either way it was an enormous disappointment that is literally pushing me to just go and buy a new phone just to not have to deal with bad refurbishment companies ever again.
bought my IPhone 7 a little over a year ago and still have it! I bought it at Wal-Mart on sale for $189. 00 and was impressed with from the start. There where a few things things that were different from previous models that I had to get use too, ( no speaker jack and home button was obviously a little different ) But, there where also huge improvements that I really enjoyed and that was the camera was better which meant better pictures and overall Quality! Also, the iPhone 7 was water resistant which was something new to the IPhone and great for a klutz like me! They also improved on their speakers including a second speaker I believe in the earpiece.
I thought is was nice of Apple to include their signature AirPods even though the phone didnâ€™t include a speaker jack. BUT, they also included an adapter. I love IPhones, always will, and definitely Recommend any one of them!.
For 120 dollars (using a promo code) i got a decent phone with no noticeable blemishes on the front and a few scratches on the back. Battery health isn’t as bad as i expected it to be, and everything runs flawlessy.
One small critique i have is that the back is covered in what appears to be sticker residue, but no matter how much elbow grease (and goo gone) i use, it wouldn’t come off. However, this small detail is nearly undetectable with a case on, even a clear one like the one I have.
Having to remove the sticker off the back was annoying as well, but it left little to no residue. All in all i had a overwhelmingly positive experience shopping with plug; their eco-friendly options aren’t even close to synonymous with “bad.
” I probably will be shopping from them again, as these deals are too good to pass up.

5″ Super AMOLED screen, powered by a long-lasting, fast charging battery.
Samsung Galaxy A51 5G (Unlocked) I love this phone. The Samsung Galaxy A51 is an Android smartphone manufactured by Samsung Electronics as part of its Galaxy A series. It was announced released in December 2019.

Also you will get a pair of ear buds with a three button remote a soft silicone case to give your phone protection right out of the box. (Certain retail places offer all of that) So far this phone is meeting all of my expectations, I had originally ordered the Galaxy A71, but was sent this one instead.
Of course I was a bit disappointed angry. But after checking out the differences, there really aren’t many. This one isn’t as big as the Galaxy A71 but it is big enough for me. There is some storage RAM size differences.
Bur I love the camera’s the bright screen. It is very clear the battery is wayyyy better than the iPhone that I had before it. I have always been a Samsung girl but decided to try the iPhone but tbh I HATED IT!! It never held a charge the keyboards are ridiculous.
But this Galaxy A51 remembers passwords uses the fingerprint to open apps that are locked. I love the security aspect to it. So from going from a Galaxy S9+ to a iPhone then back to this Galaxy A51 I am VERY happy about being able to come back to Samsung.
If you need a solid phone and can find it , do yourself a favor and purshase the Samsung A51 4G cell phone! I thought it was not a good idea to purchase on the verge of 5G coming out , but I was wrong, no drawbacks to not having 5G ! It has 4G of ram,128gb of space,5 cameras the front facing is higher resolution than most external ones are ,everything all the way up to 48mp.
It comes with OS 10 but immediately updated to OS 11 and 3 months later to OS 12 ! (something Samsung use to not do). Sound for 1 speaker is very good, fingerprint scan is flawless and downloads and updates are super quick.
I purchased it a little over a year ago and added no screen protectors and it has one tiny 1/4″ scratch (my fault) screen is well made , it has a 3. 5mm audio jack,uses c style charger , battery lasts all day with constant use (8 hours) and longer with “standard” use , charges fast and interfaces with Microsoft 12 effortlessly! I purchase it @Black Friday event for $199 bucks and originally it was $459 but has mostly been offered at $249 a steal ! I can do anything with this phone you can do with your $1200 S20 or I12 ! I don’t know about refurbished sellers but if you can get it through Walmart and the Straight Talk version it comes with a standard 1 year warranty regardless and you can purchase extended plans.
So much positive to say , I’m sure i’m leaving things out. the screen is 6. 2″ with edge to edge viewing,its very clear and bright , it automatically adjusts to lighting conditions or can be adjusted of has filters for blue light.
It adjusts itself to your schedule, it knows when you normally stop use and comes to life at your normal wake-up time. All apps including “wearables” operate flawlessly as well. Just buy it if you can find it , you will not be disappointed !.
I did tons of research looking at reviews, videos, websites, customer services, etc. in order to find the best Android smartphone for the lowest price I could get my hands on. and I found it. I paid a total of $109.
00 for this smartphone and I freaking love it. If your on the fence about buying this, well don’t be because your not going to find anything better or cheaper than this right here. This baby packs 4GB of RAM, 2.
3 Ghz Octa-Core 64 bit Processor, 128 GB of internal storage for anything your heart desires, Quad camera for excellent picture and video quality, Battery lasts me up to 8 hours of non stop use (Longer if your not on it for 8 hours straight, lol), charges fast too, External speaker is super loud, has a headphone jack, rarely gets hot even when in use for hours, comes with Android 10 but almost instantly upgrades itself to Android 11 so don’t worry.
Seriously, this phone is worth WAY more than what Walmart is asking for it. I am a huge gamer, playing games like Call of Duty: Mobile and other demanding games. This phone handles them like a dream.
So, when I tell you that this is the best darn smartphone for the price they want above. you can take my words to the bank! Okay, I’m done ranting now, lol. But seriously. buy it, your really missing out if you don’t.

IšverstiShow in original languageI purchased this product on August 25. Today is April 12. Not a single day has passed in the mean time without the touch screen freezing at least one or two times, and the only way to recover is to tear the back off the phone and pull the battery out.
I presume this issue is because half the memory on the phone is consumed by some 60 apps (I actually counted them) that I never asked to have, but were forced on me with this phone purchase and embedded in the system software so they cannot be gotten rid of.
Most of them are useless. Whenever the consumed internal storage gets a few Mb beyond the 8 Gb of factory installed bloatware, the phone freezes. I have no clue what the remaining 8 GB are supposedly doing, but they are not helping the situation.
The data transfer on this phone is extremely slow as well, even when connected with a fast Wifi. My online experience with the phone is too often that a web page will load partially and then quit. This phone gets worse with every use.
It seems I am spending half my time troubleshooting some problem, which is extremely distracting from the work I actually want to get done. It disrupts my schedule and my whole day. I tried doing a reset to factory settings and that just created all sorts of new problems without solving any old problems.
The big screen is the only plus I’d give this phone. A few days ago I was on a conference call where I was supposed to explain something to people listening in from all over the country. The microphone on my phone quit working, so I could hear the other callers just fine but they could not hear me.
I called back in several times and ultimately, the call was a complete waste of everyone’s time. For six months I’ve been sure the reason my elderly mother could not hear me on the phone was because of her hearing aids, but it turns out my phone is not working.
So I’ve missed a lot of conversations with a loved one. As a consequence of my experience with the LG Stylo 2, I will never purchase another LG product. Although the phone is still under warranty and only 6 months old, I am presently shopping for another phone.
I’ve absolutely had it with this unmitigated and inexcusable piece of junk.
IšverstiShow in original languageAbout two months ago, I splurged on this gorgeous phone. I fell in love with it right away. I carried it with me everywhere and consulted it all the time, trusting that everything is constantly updated and synced, such as Calender, Chrome, and on and on.
I also had apps for tarot card readings, daily quotes, tons of stuff. It was magical how all the data and apps fit and worked together. The camera has not been fully satisfying to use, because the options are very basic and I’d like more options to tinker with, but everything else about it is wonderful.
I love the Android Marshmallow system, the intuitive artificial intelligence that makes the phone better and better for you, the huge battery, the room for massive SD card storage, etc. A warning though.
I was holding my phone while getting out of the car. Somehow a splash of coffee went directly into the charging port and it fried my phone almost instantly. I even heard it crackling as it died. I was talked into replacing it with an Alcatel Idol 3, which completely sucked.
I took it back the next day and got another LG Stylo 2. None of the data from my apps transferred, so it feels like starting over again from scratch, yet with an old friend. This time I bought the protection plan, registered the phone on lg.
com, and am applying for the $50 rebate. I adore the ability to draw and color with the Stylus, and I’m having fun adding music files to the music storage. I highly recommend this phone. Its pretty easy to use, figure out and get used to.
IšverstiShow in original languageI did some research and decided that this phone looked good for the price after a bad uninstall of a game bricked my two- year-old LG Ultimate 2. I’ve only owned the Stylo 2 for less than a day, but it’s doing very well so far.
Pros: The Stylo 2 is big and pretty to look at. It feels a little bit like a tablet as well as a phone, and has a bright, colorful display. It’s hardware is pretty basic, but fast enough for a satisfying smart-phone experience (it runs graphics-intensive games like War Robots very smoothly).
Sound is richer and louder than I am used to coming from an LG phone, and the stylus adds an interesting new way to interact with the phone. I have not experienced any of the alleged problems that a few others here are reporting.
Calls and texts are made and received perfectly well. Set-up of the phone was simple, taking twenty minutes or so. Cons: 8 GB of storage space is something of a falsehood. Almost half of it is taken up with system files that cannot be removed.
This leaves an unsatisfactory 4 GB or so of actual storage. If you plan on taking lots of pictures, an external SD card is recommended. I do not know at this time if apps can be saved to an external SD card; if not, you won’t have room for too many apps on this phone.
Typing on this phone has taken getting some used to, as it seems overly sensitive to touch. I tend to minimize my messaging apps a lot on accident while I’m typing. The Stylo 2 is also very lightweight, and feels fragile when you lift or use it.
I will breathe easier once my armored case arrives in the mail. Overall, given all pros and cons, I would recommend this phone to anyone who knows how to take good care of their electronics and who does not need or want more than a few apps and games.
Solid performance otherwise, for the very good price it’s at.

If you live in a rural area with limited carrier availability, DO NOT BUY A STRAIGHT TALK PHONE ONLINE. The phone itself is great but my middle of nowhere town does not have Verizon towers and the phone that I was sent is locked to them.
Straight Talk reps are not very knowledgeable about their service, phones or even the activation process. Even though my phone CAN operate on the correct towers they say they can’t switch it over until I complete 12 months of paid service.
which I can’t do since I can’t activate the phone. The superviser that I spoke with actually told me to just call Apple and they will switch the phone for an unlocked model or even unlock this one. After a long convo about the reasons and legalities of why Apple can’t carrier unlock any phone – legally, I think she got it.
However, no amount of explanations about how there is no way that Apple is going to exchange an unlocked phone for one thats box has been opened, setup and is locked to a carrier worked. This was my 8th call to them and all but 2 or 3 reps were completely without the knowledge to be of any assistance.
Now my son’s SURPRISE AWESOME Christmas gift is a wifi only phone and I am stuck with a non-refundable $35 plan card that I can’t use.
I got 2 new iPhone x’s both had issues the same day of purchase. The first one I got I plugged it into my computer to try and download things from my iTunes, and the phone had the loading signal that happens when you plug it into the computer, but the problem is it never synced, and it maintained the loading screen and the syncing signal wouldn’t go away.
I tried unplugging and replugging, restarting, manually resetting, nothing worked. I took it into the Apple store and was told they didn’t know what had happened to the phone, it malfunctioned for some reason.
Okay, great… so I take it back into Verizon and get it replaced with a new iPhone X, get a new case and screen protector, promptly get home and proceed to accidentally drop my phone on the ground. I have dropped many iPhones on the ground before and the worst thing to ever happen is a cracked screen, instead the screen got a green line right down the middle like the line in the picture for this review, I tried resetting it but it wouldn’t go away, so I had to return it yet again and I got an iPhone 8 Plus instead of the x because I didn’t want to have another issue with it.
Overall I do think Apple isn’t as good as it used to be, I think things go wrong after a couple years so you’re forced to upgrade to a newer model, but this phone was something else to begin with.
Everything works. Battery health was at 96 percent upon arrival. Virtually no marks scratches or blemishes visible. Looks like brand new. It was unlocked and reset making a complete data and app transfer from my previous IPhone and setup for this replacement complete in no time.
Had it about a week now and so far, all good. Wait!! Hold the phone! No pun intended. Shortly after doing this favorable review, this product is now going to locked almost instantly if youre not continuously actively typing or switching something etc.
i didnt set it to lock that quick , and that locking so quickly wouldnt be so bad but face recognition stopped working at about the same time. Ill try to fix in settings, but this isnt a good sign.

Gave one star because it’s a nice phone. Phone set up with straight talk was quick. But incorrect. I have no LTE reception unless there’s an internet connection. Which means the device is useless for navigation listening to music searching for info.
Also to phone will often not accept incoming calls or allow me to make out going calls which means missed important messages. When I reboot the phone it usually fixes the phone issue but to little to late.
As for iconver support, there are no warm bodies to be found. Iconvert did email me a line by line description of the correct phone set up, which is different from my phone. I talked to straight talk on a least 6 different occasions to correct the issue and was only able to get the phone properly set up.
Because I’m on a fixed income smashing the phone and buying another isn’t an option. I want a new correctly set up to straight talk phone as advertised. Other wise run don’t walk to another company to purchase a device.
I was happy with this phone so far. It’s a bit of a downgrade from my aging Galaxy s model but to be honest I didn’t see much of a difference between this one and the flagships. The phone quality is as good as the S models.
It does have a plastic back but if you are going to use a case it’s no big deal. The processor speed fits my needs. If you are a big gamer or social media user you may need to charge your phone more often.
But for me even on my heavy Social media usage days I still have enough battery life to get me through the day. Overall the phone fit my needs. The cameras work well and take clear photos. The call quality is clear and I haven’t had any dropped calls.
I liked the option for the expandable storage as well. I will not that the phone does not include a SIM card or a charging block. Set up on my current cell provider was a breeze so I haven’t had any real issues as of yet.
I am relatively happy with my purchase. I should have done some research on the model I bought before I purchased it. The battery life isn’t the greatest and thats okay. I just should have done a little more home work.
I did get it hooked up per the company’s instructions. It took a day and a half to get all bugs worked out instead of the 15 minute hook up that was advertised. But I did get it hooked up and everything working, so thats all good.
It came with a 128GB SD Card instead of the 256GB that I purchased. There again no big deal just like to get what a person purchased. I haven’t contacted the company yet I wanted to use the phone for a few weeks before I left a comment.
All in all, I would recommend iconvertwireless to anyone looking for a new phone to replace the old jolopy with. Thank You!.

Plus, the seamless performance of a top Octa-core processor lets you communicate with friends and family between apps with virtually zero-lag.
It’s everything you want in a 5G smartphone, all in one.
I chose this to replace a five year old phone no longer receiving security updates. I use a banking app so to get these updates seems advisable. Samsung will apparently offer 4 years of Android updates and 5 years of security updates for this phone.
This phone has a macro camera, compass, runs the latest version of Android and has more features than my previous phone including sharper screeen, 5G and dual band WIFI. I like having the macro camera to photograph plants and insects but this only works within 3 to 5cm of the subject.
Some reviews criticise response time but I have found it fine to use and there seems to be no problem making calls even when coverage is poor. The battery is about 50% after 23 hours typical use and takes 1 hour to fully charge on a normal charger.
I do not make a lot of calls though I use apps like Whatsapp and Slack a lot. I use Nova Launcher as the home application not the Samsung One UI Home as Nova has more configuration options and may be faster than the default, though on-screen notifications require the paid-for version which is £3.
99. It is annoying that Samsung load the phone with their apps which the user cannot uninstall. With the trade in offer, this is a good value but maybe suits light users.
I’ve always had flagship phones in the past. I had a good think about what I need from a phone and decided that the A53 would do everything I want. I’m in my 50s and so enjoy a bit of gaming but if I want to play Call of Duty or other graphics card taxing titles, I’ll use the PC.
So the A53 is fine for the type of mobile games I play. I watched and read a lot of reviews and quite a few reckon it is laggy. I have to say after just over a week of use, I’ve not noticed any lag at all.
The battery life is immense, and the speakers are really good. I don’t use earphones so the lack of a jack does not bother me. Having SD card support is really useful too. Camera is really good. Videos are a little jittery and that’s an area where a flagship would probably excel.
As with the majority of Samsung phones, the display is just beautiful. The A53 is just short of being flagship slick but it really doesn’t bother me. Before you spend ridiculous money on an S series or equivalent, just have a think what you need from a phone.
This phone has lots to like. Typical Samsung, great screen quality, nice colour (who wants just a black phone) and good build quality but it has a really annoying issue that also affected the previous Samsung A51 I owned.
The fingerprint sensor is so unresponsive, it may as well not exist. I have to jab, jab, jab away and usually end up having to open the phone with the pin. Yes the screen is clean (no screen saver) and yes I’ve removed and added the fingerprint again but it makes no difference.
Why ruin a good phone with such a poor quality fingerprint sensor? (The software in general is also a bit sluggish). It may get improved wirh updates. Also, whilst I applaud there being no charger in the box for environmental reasons, I’ve needed to order one as my existing charger isn’t USB C fitting.
A good idea in principle but it’s not great in reality as the phone is incomplete.

Camera records 1080p but nowhere near 60fpsHaving your location and wifi/data on makes the battery life much shorterCharges very fastTough phone – destroyed the screen and bent the entire thing to where it hurt to touch – and somehow that phone just kept working.
It didn’t give up. Recently switched to new a20some weird things i’ve noticed: The gaming fps seems to increase a lot when you have your brightness at the minimum, why can’t it be high all the time – the bluetooth connection definitely varies when hooked up to different devices – having power saver mode on dosen’t help much – it can freeze for up to 5 seconds at a time (not that often though).
overall: Reliable mid price phone, not the best for gaming but good for essential functions. Do not buy if you want a good camera. Do buy if you are looking for a starter android for your kids. Would reccomend an iphone se over an a20 – worth it for the 1080p 60fps camera, home button, storage, and battery life.
I bought this phone in July 2020 as my first brand-new phone for $200-$250 and an upgrade from a hand-me-down S7 Edge. At first this was a huge upgrade because the screen was huge (6. 4 inches) compared to the S7 Edge (5.
5 inches). Its battery was better than the S7 Edge by ten-fold as I did not charge this phone overnight every night. The A20 has the same amount of storage so that wasn’t an issue at the time. Over time I started to notice performance issues, especially with multi-tasking and CPU-demanding apps.
Storage began filling up after one year of use and the phone became a pain to use on the regular. You can expect lag if you have more than two apps open at a time. I would spend a little more money for the A42 or A52 to get a MUCH better phone that will last longer.
I am currently looking to upgrade to either of these phones or an S21 FE to get a phone that will last. As a student I need to multi-task easily so this is not the best choice for me. Overall, if you want a phone that works for more basic functions and for cheaper, go for the A20.
It’s very similar to my 4 year old Motorola g7 only it has the android 10 update. Screen is barely larger just taller by a tiny bit. If I knew that I would never have bought it even for the $70 it cost me.
I paid $40 fir my moto 6 same memory and didn’t have to struggle with Samsung’s BS account which won’t even let me sign in so I just reset it and skipped everything, not even using it now, will be selling it and getting a new tablet like I should if done to begin with.
Battery ran down faster than my 10″ tablet with a 4g sim while snapping pictures all day and selling on offer up. Don’t let them fool you, they claim long usage, half a day and it needed a charge, my tablet would go nearly 2 days with the same use and a way easirrr to work with screen.
Camera seems to be better than the tablet and the motor even though they have same Pixel count. Moto can is hard to use constantly changing every time it’s touched. I don’t see how they can get people to pay so much for phones? The tiny differences are so slight and most features are simply useless or too involved to bother learning.
Do much easier to simply use a good DSLR camera and transfer high quality pictures to the tablet and sell than trying to work with a phone and waste so much time trying to get a perfect shot. This phone is worth the $70 I paid but nothing special, battery dies quick screen is in s useless skinny tall format, which I don’t see why they would even bother making it like that other than to be able to post a larger number for screen size, (it worked on me so I guess they accomplished the task.
Oh don’t plan on actuslly bring able to hear anything through the speakers, maxed out and I couldn’t even tell if the video had sound or not until I put my ear up the phone in a quiet room. You get exactly what you pay for and nothing more it just depends on what you plan to do with it.
Make a few calls and not worry if it breaks it is lost then it’s perfect.

A breakthrough 12MP camera system with Portrait mode, Portrait Lighting, enhanced bokeh, and all-new Depth Control. Water resistance. And iOS 12 – the most advanced mobile operating system in the world – with powerful new tools that make the iPhone more personal than ever.
The Coral color is such a cheerful true bright (almost neon) Coral, it makes me happy. For the colors alone, I am sad that Apple has discontinued the XR. I love how the light/brighter colors don’t smudge like the black phones.
I do worry about being able to find parts for it, cases, etc. but I should not worry so much because neither of my XRs had lasted a year without major problems. Crashes often. Problems with the sound and mic leave me unable to use dictation and hear anyone at all on the Coral phone without Speaker on, which makes it awful for public use.
The camera is cloudy. I’m hoping I can get that fixed. I know that using your phone can make things clog, stick, etc. but I never had those issues with my regular series iPhones, all the way back to iPhone 4.
These just seem junkier. My black XR has also had sound issues. I like being able to use a waterproof phone purse because there’s no home key but these Facial recognition phones keep recognizing me and turning the volume, way, way down when I’m on the phone.
A long series of steps shuts off this automatic volume adjustment, but I’ve had to do it several times. It just starts doing it again, out of the blue. The StraightTalk service is the worst. When I got my 2nd phone, they transferred service and shut my main phone off, despite begging and explaining 20 times.
Then, when I went to reactivate my new phone, I begged them to give me 2 separate phones with different numbers and Apple IDs but they linked them. I got the new phone for more storage so it was pointless.
They said I HAD to have the phones’ Apple IDs linked which I know is not true from when I set up a new phone. Now my phones ring at the same time and I can’t call my phone to locate. Everything that goes onto one is on the other.
Straight Talk won’t separate them unless I start over with a new SIM and I don’t think they provide that anymore and hear the BYOP cards are a nightmare, plus I don’t know if they work on Straight Talk phones.
I understand that this is a review of the phone but since it is only useable with Straight Talk, I have to review that. as well. They had improved greatly before Covid-19. I will never again reactivate a Straight Talk phone if I need storage (though I did not choose to deactivate and begged them not to).
I will only buy new phones and set them up myself. I spent over 11 hours on the phone to them trying to sort out the mistake, to no avail. Good service isn’t cheap and cheap service isn’t good, but I’m broke so what can I do? All that aside, I will sorely miss my colorful phones.
This mint iPhone XR is a great phone at a great price. Keeping up with technology can be daunting these days. I choose to stay with state of the market models rather than state of the art. Personally, I buy my used Apple iPhones and iPads a couple generations back.
Swappa gear meets my needs. These folks are a terrific source for used technology at a fraction of the price of brand new models. As an engineer in the computer industry, I am well aware that most of the gee-wiz features and functions of the latest technology are rarely worth the often insane prices charged.
In my experience, the bells and whistles rarely justify the price. I just replaced my iPhone 8 Plus (great phone) with an iPhone XR (frankly, a very minor upgrade — nearly the same phone minus the home button).
Savvy buyers often buy mint used gear and turn it over every couple years or so. Candidly, this way, the out of pocket cost for staying relatively current on personal tech become more like a small rental fee.
Swappa is the best place I’ve found to get mint condition used products at attractive prices. After several satisfied purchases, I am completely confident the item I see listed on Swappa is the product I will receive.
So here’s my opinion – I can’t stand the whole “Apple” vs “Android” battle with people. To each his own. What works for you is best for you. That being said, this is my personal opinion: I have had IPhones for years.
I do not get the newest one every time they come out. I treat my phones well with a protective case and screen. But I also live a busy active life and drop my phones and they get bumped around a bit.
iPhones have always been great for me and durable. When upgrading to a new phone the transition is always easy and I never lose pictures / data / accounts because the transfer of info is always easy.
I love how easy it is to share things with other iPhone users. The cameras are great and getting better. I have no complaints and would highly recommend. I will say if you want a phone and you are very concerned about the camera feature, the Google Pixels cameras are superior BUT from what I have seen in the new iPhones, their cameras are catching up.
And from recently transferring /upgrading my husbands Google phone, the process is not as easy and he’s having random issues with not receiving basic phone notifications and things. So overall, it’s all about your needs, and life style but in my opinion, you can’t go wrong with an iPhone and I have been happy with mine.
Get a phone with the features you want with no contract or mystery fees. Ever. Choose the Moto G Power in Black on Straight Talk and get a 16MP camera, 64GB of memory and up to 37. 5 hours of standby time.
Pair it with an unlimited talk, text & data plan from Straight Talk and enjoy nationwide coverage on Americas largest and most dependable networks*.

Take vivid, focused night shots and have fun with super slow-motion videos.
Alright I just have to start with this, the camera is bad. The specs make it sound good but there is some strange programming that leaves you with very inconsistent photo quality, especially when it comes to the colors.
You can tweak some of the settings to help reduce these effects, mainly turning off the HDR. But that also comes at a cost because your photos will look dull. So your choice is often an oversaturated picture or a dull lifeless picture.
The zoom function is also minimal before you notice a loss in quality. With that out of the way, let’s get to what makes this phone good. The screen is excellent! It’s big, super clear, and the colors look great.
Pair this with the phone’s good sound quality and it’s almost like you have a miniature high end tv in your hands. My biggest focus when picking out a new phone was a balance between budget and performance.
I’m happy to say the performance of the TCL 10 Pro has not disappointed. Its 6GB of RAM keeps pace when swapping between apps. I no longer have to wait 10-20 seconds for an app to open and load when compared to my old phone.
A few other points; the specs say Android 10 but after fully updating the phone it has updated to Android 11, the fingerprint sensor works great, you may have trouble setting up your phone if you service provider is Verizon but you can contact them and request support for a CDMA-less device, the battery is decent often lasting me 2-3 days and the charging is fairly quick, lastly if you need a screen protector and heavy duty case your options are limited and with the complaints I read for pretty much the only screen protector I found online for this phone I opted out of getting one, so if those are important to you may need to consider carefully if this phone is a good fit for you.
Overall, I love the phone! It is very good for the price if you don’t mind the budget, poorly optimized camera it comes with. Or your lack of options when it comes to screen protectors and cases. But the excellent screen and speedy performance more than makes up for those disappointments for me.
Fast, feature-packed phone at a budget price. Some features: SD card slot, IR emitter (one of the very few phones with this feature which allows use as an IR remote), headphone jack, FM radio, through-glass fingerprint reader, programmable ‘smart button’, several cameras with dual flash LEDs.
6 GB RAM and 128GB on-board storage. A few things lacking: No wireless charging, no water resistance, beveled ‘edge’ display (I don’t care for these and it looks like it might be the phone’s Achilles’ Heel if dropped) And not many cases available for this model.
Touch screen is not as sensitive as it could be on the edges and maybe a bit too sensitive towards the center, IMO. Camera is good, but you have to tweak the settings to get the most out of it. Call quality is good, though maybe a bit under Apple’s standards.
Display is bright and clear, even in sunlight. Fast. Decently loud stereo speakers. Good battery life. Feels solid and sturdy. Overall, for the sub $400 price, this phone outperforms phones costing twice as much.
And if you want exclusivity, you won’t find many people with this phone. The IR remote, to me, is a great feature. And happy to see that TCL didn’t load the phone with a bunch of bundled apps that no one wants.
Awesome mid priced phone acting like a top tier phone. The quality is superb, from the fit and finish, to all the features it comes with. The screen looks beautiful, colors are vibrant and full of detail.
Now this phone was an open box item, the phone itself looks brand new, no scratches, no nicks, nothing, so great there. The charger on the other hand was from a Samsung phone, looks new too, it was still wrapped.
Only thing, it was defective, it overheated and the phone gave a warning on screen that the charging had issues. I already had a fast charging USB C charger, so I didn’t care, I just wanted the phone.
It came with Android 10, but quickly updated to Android 11, which might take a while getting used to it, especially File Manager. So if you want a high end phone without the high cost, check out the TCL 10 Pro.
Don’t forget to get a 256gb card too, adds to the 128gb internal storage, plenty of room for apps, music, photos, and videos.

I bought this tablet specifically because it was advertised as being able to increase internal storage via SD Card. We just reached our 32gb limit of internal space and purchased an SD Card. Turns out you can only store photos etc on the SD Card.
I already pay for cloud storage for those things so the SD card was a waste of money. Our 32gb internal storage was used up really quickly with apps/games for both my son and I. None of which can be stored on the SD Card so now we have a tablet that wont hold all the apps/software we need and I’m not sure what to do.
I’m constantly having to delete apps so that I can download the one I need, then deleting that app after using it so I can download the app I deleted in order to use that. I looked over the advertising again and it’s very misleading, the wording implies that the SD Card works as an extension of the internal storage, I couldn’t see it mentioned anywhere that it only applied to certain types of files and not software.
The tablet even has the option to move apps to the SD Card, but when I do that it doesn’t change the storage totals and never actually appears on the storage list for the SD Card, it is still listed under internal storage but with a note that its on the SD Card.
I’m furious that I spent hundreds of dollars on a device that doesn’t do what I need it to. So if you are considering this product because of the additional storage capability, make sure you take stock of exactly what type of storage you need and whether it can be stored on the SD Card.
If not you will need to purchase one with larger internal storage.
The design is the perfect fit for my ears. Comfortable and sit tight even for runs. The sound is clear and noice cancelling stellar. Gone are those annoying rubber parts that always got lost or had terrible fit for my ears.
But here is the down side, had I not got these for free, I would never ever had paid for them. With no dust or water resistance to write home about, these begs you to have an indoor inactive lifestyle or a extra pair for anything else than sit tight on your bud, or maybe stroll around in an indoor mall.
They are not suitable for working in the garden, getting caught in the rain, workout session and so on. So if you got a semi active lifestyle and at risk at getting caught in the rain, then this shojld be a hard pass.
I got my for free, so I will use them for above activity well-known to me that this will break them at some point. And at that point Samsung hopefully made Galaxy buds Active Live, with same design, but actually made for people who venture out from time to time.
I had an S series tablet and switched to the A series as it is much cheaper. I’ve struggled for 2 years and am going back to the S series. The camera is mediocre. I take the same pic on my S21 phone and it shames this tablet.
Colours are dull. But the absolute worst is the touch screen. I use my tablet in the evenings for games and to read new headlines. The touch screen is awful. The lack of sensitivity is beyond frustrating.
I was used to a light tap being enough to select something but this one requires a firmly supported tablet and a fairly hard tap or multiple hard taps. This makes most stands useless and I have to hold in my hands or propped against my knees.
Some nights I just don’t feel like fighting with it just leave it idle. I will be purchasing an S series this Black Friday.

I got my phone on 2 year contract with Sprint before the T-Mobile merger finalized during a President’s Day Sale. After all the awesome discounts plus free Hulu with ads for as long as I have this phone, I ultimately got this phone for free plus got discount on my Sprint bill for the duration of the 2 year discount.
No more bill discounts but still got my perks. This screen is tough! I can’t tell you how many times I have dropped this phone while in its protective case which can’t 100% protect the screen because of Samsung Galaxy screen curving up away from bevel giving it that vulnerable exposure.
I don’t have a screen protector and screen is virtually scratch free except for a crack in the corner. The absolute worst my phone survived was when I down a flight of concrete stairs, phone in hand with the case wide open resulting in the screen taking impacts from concrete.
Battery life is OK. You have to teach this phone how to save power and manage apps which is a let down compared to the S7’s device manager which performed way better. Not a fan of Bixby. She isn’t bright for an AI assistant and is a dumb memory devouring program that leaves you wanting to use Google Assistant instead, because I swear no matter how times I update Bixby it may ask me to install more modules before it finally does a task I gave it.
By the way, my Bixby ease drops on conversations but sleeps when I do say her name. Back to what I love. streaming Crunchy Roll, Hulu, Netflix, Disney Plus, YouTube, Sirius, and Spotify all worked effortlessly on this phone.
Great sound and graphics and I can always blow the screen up large on TV with my family’s Chromecast wirelessly. Bluetooth devices work great, even used an endoscope. Camera performance is at the mercy of Samsung software updates.
At 1st I thought camera only a little better than my S7 but it is actually a whole lot better! Last few program updates unlocked true potential of camera. I even watched video tutorials from Samsung for achieving best results with photography with phone.
Actually that is another nice feature is the new tips that occasionally pop up to teach you more about using your S9 and updated features. Looking to upgrade to S21 or S22.
Excellent phone, even in 2021. It still checks off all the absolute essentials– good call quality, loud speakers, good volume. And it still holds up relatively well in the “extras” department. Display is still gorgeous, love the flat camera on the back, and though it is just a single lense, it still takes photos that are plenty sufficient for typical use.
Still snappy going through the UI, and still has a headphone jack. Stereo speakers are a bonus. I got mine in lilac purple and think it looks quite gorgeous. Slapped a Joker wallpaper on it to fit the purple color.
Still holds up well against alot of 2019, 2020, and even some 2021 flagships. It does not recieve major OS updates anymore, but it still receives critical security updates that help keep it running succificently and securely.
Bought this for $200 after the motherboard in my S20 went bad(replacement would have been $500, over half what I paid for it) and feel like that was a steal, and I’m not missing a whole lot from my S20.
S9 can absolutely still hang today here in the last quarter of 2021. Only knock is the battery, which IS quite weak, even with degradation considered, but it does charge back up quite rapidly. For that, I’d take half a star off if I could, but I wouldn’t remove a full star, as I feel 80% is a low grade for this phone.
Holy Shxt, this is the best phone Iâ€™ve ever owned. I dropped my phone near Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco around 6:30 at night, and hadnâ€™t realized until I was already 30 min away. My girlfriend and I were stopped in a highway blockage on the way back because some guy improperly strapped his wooden furniture, the furniture falls off the back of the truck and wooden pieces go across the entire highway.
We wait for about 20 min for the highway to clear. We get back to Ghirardelli Square snd I start trying to locate my phone by calling it and I doesnâ€™t even go to voicemail, all it says is, â€œthis wireless customer can not be reached.
We look around the beach, park and parking lot and its nowhere to be seen. I try to locate it with Google find phone, and after about 10 minutes of trying to find the map that shows the location of my phone I finally find it.
I see it on the map in the San Francisco Bay. My gf and I run over and look out into the water to see if we can find anything and she spots a faint light coming from the ocean. I dropped it in the sand and the waves carried it out 10-15 feet and into about 4-5 foot deep water.
I take off my clothes and rush out to get it. As I pick it up, I feel it halfway submerged into the sand floor, sand running down my arms and hands as I hoist my phone out of the water. I run quickly back to shore and start rapidly drying it.
I rinsed it off so I donâ€™t get salt corrosion but it was submerged under the ocean, in the sand for about a total time of hour and half. As of right now (12:27 am the time I wrote this) the phones seems to have no problems at all.

Where do I even start. Owned 4 different generations of Galaxy S phones including this garbage, excluding family members. Galaxy S devices owned: Galaxy S, Galaxy S3 (white and blue), Galaxy S5 (gold), Galaxy S8+ (Gray & Blue), Galaxy S10+ (blue), Galaxy S20 FE 5G UW (Blue & Blue).
Lets just say I really regret getting this device and letting go of my S8+. I never experienced touch-screen issues on a Galaxy before this device, but rather on a Pantech Hotshot prior to me getting my first smartphone (GS3 in Blue).
Next, I still don’t understand one bit, how in the world the aluminum edge gets damaged in an otterbox type case, and is taken really great care. It then corrupted one of my MicroSD cards that I have been using since my GS5 where I lost all of my data (I know some SD cards lasted longer).
When making phone calls, I could barely hear people talking. Also, from Day 1, this device was overheating from charging (not even doing a full charge here; my main complaint on my GS8+ after cracking both sides of the phone that were glass after 3 yrs 3 months of ownership).
Then very recently, this device acted like half my vehicle’s speakers were blown and need replacing. That was my last straw with this device. Swapped out the sim from this and put it in an iPhone 12 Pro that I was originally using for work purposes, but is now my daily driver until either the S22 Ultra comes with a MicroSD card or the iPhone 14 Pro comes out.
Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G 512GB (Unlocked) MODEL NUMBER: SM-G988UZKEXAA Owned since preorder on March 4, 2020 I just replaced the Rugged Protective Cover with the Silicone Cover from Samsung and found that the glass back is fractured right near the bottom left corner of the camera.
The phone has never been dropped and still has the original manufacturer screen protector (small pit marks visible). How long has the back been cracked? Only force applied is when in my front pocket.
The Samsung Rigged Case should have prevented any cracking by any object that bumped into my leg or bending of the phone. An expensive flagship phone should not be this fragile. Samsung Premium Care billed monthly but there should be no out of pocket cost to repair a phone that has countless complaints of weak “Gorilla” glass that covers the front and back.
If I wanted a phone that shatters, I would have bought an iPhone! Otherwise, the phone performed great after the 100% required firmware updates for the camera. Battery life, screen brightness/hdr, speakers, and software are rock solid.
Is it too difficult for Samsung engineers to produce a premium phone made from steel/aluminum alloys and have a thicker border edge. Customers shouldn’t be compelled to buy cases for protection and to keep their hands from contacting the screen along the edges.
The phone is great. The price was great. The online shopping experience was terrible. The online item description was inaccurate. No where in the item title was 5G mentioned. In the item description they clearly stated that the phone was 4GLTE.
I visited a Walmart to look at the phone and see what it was. They only had an empty display box that clearly said that the phone was 5G, but this phone had been made in both 4G and %G versions, so I didn’t know what was actually being offered for $249 online.
The ad claimed 2 day shipping, but it turned out to be 6 days with multiple delays. For 3 days they said that it was arriving on that day, but it didn’t. When it finally arrived it was indeed the 5G model.
The phone is amazing, especially for $249. It’s a HUGE upgrade from my S7. The performance and features of this phone are terrific. It’s a flagship phone at a cheaper price. The back is polycarbonate, instead of gorilla glass, and the front bezel is thicker, but I use a Otterbox case so you can’t see that stuff anyway.
I wanted a brighter screen that I could see in bright daylight and a longer lasting battery. This does both very well. I haven’t charged the phone in 36 hours and it still has 70% battery left. Screen is easily visible in bright sun.
Super fast Snapdragon 865 chip set. Excellent camera and you can expand the phone’s 128G onboard memory by additional 1 terabyte using the expansion slot. There’s nothing about this phone that I don’t like except that it doesn’t come with a phone jack.

I had a unique experience with Net 10 updating my cell number from a Samsung J3 Orbit to this cell phone. This phone is factory unlocked as advertised, however I didn’t know that the carrier was on T-Mobile service prior unit I checked the IMEI number and found out.
So the Sim Card needed a T-Mobile sim card that I bought for. 99 online. Orginally Net 10 told me to use the Verizon sim card, which didn’t work, so I tried the T-Mobile sim card and boom, it worked.
So, I sent a message to the seller on Saturday and Monday morning I got a response. I called them and explained my problem in detail being that I thought that the phone was a dud. Nope, the phone is fine, just wrong set up information from Net 10 regarding Sim card carriers.
I did ask the seller to list the prior carrier so that the buyer can insert the proper sim card. Seller very easy guy talk to on the phone. Ok now for the phone condition. minor light wear on some of the edges, hard to see since the phone is black.
I order the case with two screen protectors from Walmart. com @ $8. 99 for this Samsung A32 5G and once on you can’t see any minor imperfections. It works for me. Also, this phone is a gem, does it all for me, everything works, I bought Walmart’s warranty for it for peace of mind.
My old phone worked fine but I wanted an update to 5 G and this was the least expensive one I could fine on Walmart. com. Better prices here then elsewhere for me. So, that’s my input, hope it helps your decision.
New Samsung user over here! I’ve always been an apple user and I truly like this Samsung. It’s much more user-friendly than their phones in the past. Super easy to understand, and I picked everything up quickly, even after having used Apple products for the last 20 years.
As far as the as the service goes, I am super pleased. No dropping calls when driving through the backroads. The Wi-Fi calling has super clear service according to people on the other end of the phone.
My only complaint is the video quality. It’s only 480p vs the 1080p I had with my iPhone. So when recording and also sending videos, it’s horribly pixelated and you can hardly make out the video. I even tried sending videos to multiple people, thinking it could be a particular phone/provider, but no lol it was my phone.
I’m not sure if that’s a service issue or a Samsung issue, but I don’t like it. The mint mobile service is pretty superb though. I would definitely recommend this for someone who doesn’t want to be stuck in a contract.
The plan options are reasonably priced for everyone including the unlimited option. You don’t have to spend $150 just for service!! It nice to finally have something affordable.
I got this phone for a decent price after switching from iPhone. It is a great starter phone for your teenager or a good phone for a worker who doesn’t have time for in between charges since it has a long battery life.
It has all the basic features and it’s good for what it is. Its large screen makes it great for streaming and entertainment, however if you don’t like a phone that takes up too much space in your pocket this may not be the one for you.
However the large screen is a plus helpful if anyone have any visual limits or needs more space to type. The face unlock is a handy feature and another big plus. It also has a nice outside design that I just love and with the right phone case it just adds to it’s aesthetic.
One big con is how slow the phone can be. It has little freakouts where if you try to switch between apps just a bit too fast it’ll lag and freeze. If you try to lock it during one a freakout it’ll take up to 30 seconds to a minute to actually do so.
This one feature is what stops this phone from being a pretty good phone, but for now until it gets fixed/addressed, it’s just decent at best. If phone lag doesn’t bother you or if you’re a patient person then this phone will be a pretty good match for you.
Overall on a scale from 1-10, the phone gets about a 5. 5/10.

Affordable and stuffed with great features, the LG Sunset helps you end every day with a smile on your face.
I must say I have done my homework in finding a smartphone. I spent many of hours looking at phone specifications and reviews. Also every phone plan available for no contract plans. I found that Straight Talk offers you the biggest bang for your dollar out there.
Their $45 — 30 day plan is simple –unlimited talk, text and data. First 5gb data up to 4g LTE speed then to 2g. This phone the LG SUNSET L33L is a 4G LTE, also powered by an android 5. 0 Lollipop system, 1.
2 GHz quad – core processor, 5mp camera/ 0. 3 front facing camera/ video recorder. Noted the camera is old school stuff at 5mp, but still gives you a nice clean or crisp picture. I didn’t purchase the phone for the camera as I have a Nikon for my photography.
Why I did purchase this phone was its a 4g LTE and 5. 0 android lollipop and has a 4. 5″ touch screen. Those 3 things are what makes this phone a sweet deal. Thanks to Walmart I found this phone online from Straight Talk for $24 dollars yes $24.
You cant find a phone out there with these kind of specs. for the price and made by Lg. Ive had the phone for 2 weeks and it runs smooth no glitches. The wifi capability is great to use for your e-mails, google search, ect.
Oh and did I mention it has an FM radio and mp3 player? The battery life is great for all day use and eve. It comes with 8 gb internal storage in which is around 4gb useable. You can purchase a mini-sd card up to 32gb for extra storage for your music, pics and video.
All in all I hope you find what your needs are in a phone and plan but if you find a better deal out there than this you studied harder than I did.
I am very impressed with the technology included in this $24 phone. All I needed it for was to run the newest version of the GoPro app (I was on Android version 2. 3. 6 for a long time) and it is working amazing with my Hero 4 Black Editions.
The phone runs quick and smooth, the graphics on the games are flawless and the display is bright and crisp. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because of the build quality. The phone feels very light and the plastic seems flimsy.
One drop of this phone may destroy the screen and phone itself. Overall, an AMAZING buy for the smartphoner on a budget. The flimsiness is only a small negative for how much the phone costs. I don’t use it as an actual phone so I have no review for the reception on this particular model, but I have used Straight Talk phone service when I was in Nederland, CO a few years ago and I was the only one in the group with signal for calls and data use.
The LGL33L is adequate, but cheaply built, compared to some of their lesser models. The plastic is thiner, it creeks, but it looks nicer because it’s white, not dingy black. Next, the spell check in the message area gives you fewer word choices to use??? Moreover, even though it also accepts a 32-gig SD card, the music player will not play your music? Why? My LG21 kitkat does? Oh well, I’ll use my older phone for the music, and use this phone for, well, a phone.
The only good thing is it’s 4G LTE — that means it sends messages more quickly, and picks up phone signals a little quicker, and has a voice que for google on the face, for asking google anything you want, that’s nice.
I suggest looking at other models, for LG failed on this phone.
There are many benefits to using an unlocked phone with Straight Talk. For starters, you’ll have more freedom to choose which phone you use with the service. You’ll also be able to take advantage of lower prices for service, since you won’t be tied to a specific carrier.
And if you travel internationally, an unlocked phone will make it much easier to use your phone while you’re away from home.
