    An excellent phone for the price despite negative reviews, May 18, 2012

    UPDATED 2/17/13
    This phone has received a considerable amount of negative reviews – compared against similar phones of the same price range, this is an excellent phone. Many of the negative reviewers seem to obviously be expecting the features of a $200 phone from a $80 – $100 Trac phone (UPDATE: Thanks to a commenter the Walmart retail of this phone is now only $28. I have not verified this, but if that be the case, this phone is an INCREDIBLE VALUE).

    First off the OS on this system is not an Android (it is a Windows based OS), and it is technically not a smart phone but has MANY of the features of a smart phone. The browser is Dolphin, used by many Android based phones, so it is a decent browser, with some things you can do, some things you cannot. The phone supports some apps, others it does not…

    This phone is a 3G pseudo-smart phone (it has many of the qualities of a smart phone but is technically not one because it lacks a few things, all of which I will mention) with a mid-sized touch screen and runs a Windows based operating system, as opposed to Android, for instance. The screen flips so it can be viewed horizontally or vertically in any screen/view, and texts can be done via regular virtual phone keys or a horizontal virtual keyboard. It is not loaded with apps, but has pre-loaded practical apps that will be covered in this review, as well as additional optional apps available from samsung… it doesn’t have nearly the available apps of say an iPhone, which, while they are very very cool, especially things like, for instance, meditation breathing apps to transportation apps, mimic police scanners, and dining/store finders/reviews, and apps that allow you to practically run full programs, etc., however, for the value, the apps available (some installed with the phone, others available via samsung) are within reason and, like I said, are predominately very practical ones, and it also has a sizable amount of available game downloads as well, which run pretty well on this phone’s CPU. It includes a decent but not an excellent dolphin based browser, facebook app (w/facebook sync option), an MP3 player, voice recorder, wi-fi capability, downloadable games, email sync, etc., and, again, other samsung apps are available for download. It is bluetooth compatible, and has wifi (which works excellently – when I’m at home or somewhere with free wifi I have no problem using it so I don’t use up any of my data plan, which, btw, the 3G data plan on straight talk for $30 is generous – one reviewer had a problem with the wifi but likely was not finding a close enough signal). It also has manageable widgets for your apps that you can place on your phone’s home screen(s)… 3 home screens you can slide through, and customize each with whatever widgets you want for quick app access as well as a different wallpaper/photos for each home screen.

    One reviewer complained that it does not have a GPS option – there is a legal “hack” where you can get GPS on it by paying via a separate plan – you would have to do your own research. If GPS is a big thing for you and you’re not a techie, this phone may not be for you. I have mapquest bookmarked on my browser as an alternative. It has very intuitive voice recognition app that has worked great for me, just as good as an iPhone, it is excellent for dialing in the car without actually dialing and then just using the speaker phone, for instance… however it will not type a text for you via voice (it will bring the create text screen up and address it, but won’t type it by your voice, but, again, for 90 (28?) bucks it’s awesome that it has the voice recognition features it has). It has a Micro SD card slot that can hold up to a 64 gig card (a very expensive card, however, the 32 gigs you can get for around $15, name brand Sandisk, if you shop around amazon – I have dozens of tv shows, and full length movies, and tons of pics and other docs and MUSIC as the phone can be used as an mp3 player and for viewing video) plus plenty of phone memory – It also has a SIM card you can save/backup contacts to. It takes photo and video and for only 2 mega pixel (I think) it is very decent quality (If you plan on taking regular video you should definitely purchase a micro SD card of 8, 16, 32 or 64 GB size). There is no zoom or flash, but there are video and photo effects you can apply. You can watch video on it (I’ve put movies and TV shows on it using format factory (reformat files using mobile phone setting) and they play and look and sound perfect). You can also stream video via the browser which has Flash but it has some limitations… read on) It works great as an MP3 player in the car, through headphones, speakers, or even through the phones speaker which goes to a decent volume, and although the PC sync is limited (you can’t sync your contacts or back them up via data cable, or some other sync options – however – you can do this through straight…

    A Solid Phone..not perfect, March 27, 2012
    By 
    This review is from: Straight Talk Samsung T528G Prepaid Touchscreen Cell Phone (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    As I write this I’ve had the Samsung T528G for about two weeks, with Straight Talk service.
    STRAIGHT TALK COMMENT:
    Straight Talk has been fine so far. Service has been fine. I just spent the weekend out in the boondocks, and I didn’t have service. My wife had service with her Verizon phone if she stood at the very top of a hill facing a certain direction. Other than that, Straight Talk has worked out great. And that one incident isn’t worth paying $30 extra dollars a month for.
    THE PHONE:
    Phones are not a big source of interest or entertainment for me. I simply want an effective communication device that doesn’t cost too much, and doesn’t cause a lot of frustration. This one fits the bill very well. Call quality is fine.
    One thing I do deeply appreciate it the easy and effective lock mechanism. Every phone I’ve had for the past five years “pocket dials” – even when locked. This phone, however, is a one-button lock, that stays locked until I say so. It’s easy to unlock also, but not accidentally. Thank you!
    TOUCH SCREEN:
    I’m in my forties, so touch screens are still kind of a novelty for me. My fingers are about average for a man. Even so, I found overall that the screen was responsive and easy to use.
    The QWERTY keypad (context dependent) is a little small. I’ve only sent about five texts, so in fact, I’m still getting used to it. I’m pretty sure it will be fine once I get used to it. I turned off the “T9″ feature which guesses which word you are trying to type. It’s worthless because you can’t keep adding new letters once it kicks in.
    The other aspects of the touch screen are easy and responsive.
    WIDGET FUNCTION:
    This is the only part of the phone which I dislike. I view the whole concept as a design flaw. There is a little side bar that will slide out and offer you widgets (like an alarm clock, or a calculator, or weather report). These can all be accessed through the tools menu elsewhere on the phone. The idea is, the widget bar gets you there faster.
    Three issues: first, once you tap the widget on the bar, it doesn’t actually open the widget – it just puts it out onto the main screen. You then have to tap (or double-tap, depending on the widget) to open it. Silly and pointless. In most cases it is the same number of taps to go to menu>tools>[whatever widget you want].
    Second, once you have used your widget, it sits out there on the main screen, cluttering it up. Widgets easily get put on top of one another, making them hard to access, which is exactly opposite of the point.
    Third, I have a lot of trouble getting the widgets to go back onto the widget bar when I’m done with them. The idea is to tap once and drag the widget back onto the bar. You shouldn’t have to do this in the first place. But, you do, and it is very hard to convince the phone that you don’t simply want to reposition the widget icon to the left side of the screen. You have to find just the right sweet spot to get it go back to the bar.
    So, I hate the widget function. There, it’s out of my system.
    MUSIC
    The music player is a decent, functional tool, with the ability to transfer playlists even from my non-standard media library (Media Jukebox). You’ll definitely want to get a decent sized micro sd to keep the music on. I created my own ringtone for my wife with few problems.
    WI-FI
    The wi-fi function is nice – when available, you can browse the internet from a wifi connection and not use up any network bandwith. In other words, you can get `free’ internet when wi-fi is available.
    OTHER TOOLS:
    I often use alarms, countdown timers and calculators. This phone has all three, and they all work just fine
    CAMERA/CAMCORDER
    I haven’t used the camcorder. The camera is 2MP, which isn’t that great these days. It’s OK in a pinch (like when I’m fishing) but if I expect to take pictures, I’m carrying my 12 MP zoom camera.
    WEB BROWSER, FACEBOOK
    I’m too old to get used to these tiny screens. I don’t even like browsing the web on my 7″ Nook Color – so I didn’t care for these functions on this phone, simply because of size.
    APPS:
    As I said, I don’t look at phones as a source of entertainment. I don’t think this phone would be a good one in any case. There are “apps” available from Samsung. The following sentence will tell you all you need to know about them: There are 22 apps – total. If you want anything that doesn’t come standard with the phone, this is not the unit for you.

    Overall, a good little phone if you want a basic phone with a few of the “standard” extras.

    Samsung t528g nice phone, December 3, 2011
    By 
    Devon Wilson (Little river, South carolina) –
    This review is from: Straight Talk Samsung T528G Prepaid Touchscreen Cell Phone (Wireless Phone Accessory)

    I just purchased this phone from walmart and i must say, that im surprised at how well it functions..Before i added a plan to it, i tried the wi-fi out and it worked fantastically..The youtube only works if your wi-fi connection is good and the quality of the videos might not be up to par with the other touch screens, it’s still decent..Im not a fan of the apps, but the ones that are available for the phone are limited if you go on the phone site, but there are other sites that you can go to in order to get more..I heard alot of ugly reveiws about the phone freezing and rebooting itself..As long as i had it, it hasn’t froze once…Im thinking i got one of there tweeked phones. They probably got all of the bugs out of mine..But, on the safe side, it might be better to just purchase it from the walmart stores..That way if you don’t like it, you can return it for a refund..Overall, I think this phone is really sturdy with good features and The calls are clear. The txt messages are something you have to get use to, but thats y they have styluses…Good priced phone and it is a whole lot better than my old flip phone..Any questions..Just holler
