Hey there everybody, I have had no luck when it comes to owning Samsung smartphones. Well, I have only had two of them so far, a Galaxy Fit and a Samsung Wonder, but I have had problems with both of them. And, it hasn't been the same problem either, which makes it all the more frustrating. The Galaxy Fit, I have to admit, was a pretty groovy little phone. The only problem was that it had difficulty keeping up with what I expected - Facebook, Twitter, Gmail as well as the numerous SMS that I receive everyday from a good friend. It was always glitching and turning itself off. So, I brought a Samsung Wonder about 12 months later. It was bigger and could handle more than the Fit and, I was reassured by the sales lady, it would get better reception in the suburb I live in. Even though it did get better reception and it could handle the social media sites well, I found that it had other problems. I got the phone unlocked so that I could change networks only to find that it kept resetting itself back to the old network. No matter how many times I change the settings, it just keeps on resetting itself. I have a phone that can only make calls and receive messages, kinda like an old phone lol! My partner has an iPhone 4 and has had no problems over the past 2 years. He used to go through phones like they were going out of fashion at one point so to have a phone that he is still impressed with, it must be a good thing. At $449 for a 16GB iPhone 4, would I be better off getting one or is there another type that I should consider as well? Thanks n have a great day!

Hi! I am a Samsung user , all my mobiles are all Samsung and they are all good ! It's been 3 years in me but not even once it have any problem . All of us in family used Samsung . Maybe yours is just an isolated case . I really believed Samsung is a good product , reliable , dependable and user friendly. One week ago i bought Galaxxy tab , and i was so impressed with its specs and the camera is so clear ! I am happy user of Samsung.

Oh that's fantastic news! I was thinking about getting the Galaxy Tab but decided on the iPad 2 instead. I know of people who have Samsung phones as well who have no problems either. I'm kind of jealous of them, I admit, because their phones work for them LOL! It's good hear that they are not all like the two that I have purchased ;)

I think most probably it is always good to go for branded ones.

Instead of going through all that trouble, you should have bought yourself an iPhone from the get go. I have had iPhones ever since they came out. I have had everyone so far. I currently own the iPhone5. What I do is I hand them down the line. Like when I get a new iPhone, I give my girlfriend my old one and my son then gets her old one and my daughter gets my sons old one. That way I only have to buy one phone. it works out real good.

I think most probably iPhones are getting popular now a days and most probably you can go for it as it is better and I also think that you should go through the features of everything and go for it if you want.
