I upgraded my phone to the Samsung Fascinate. At first I had a lot of problems with it freezing up on me and horrible static. I took it back to the store and the promptly exchanged it out for me. Now, it works great! Always has reception, bright screen, and is the perfect pocket-size. If you are an applications person, this is a great phone for you. It runs off of Android operating system and has about every application you could ever want to download. You can even read your Kindle books on it, which is awesome.The camera on it is not the greatest, but it does do its job and they usually come out pretty clear. It also has quite a bit of memory to store those pictures or music.

There are a few dislikes to this phone as well. Such as, the keyboard. It is a little hard to type on sometimes and you have to go in and change the settings so that it wont do the swipe thing that come pre-installed on the phone.. It can get quite annoying. It does have spell check though. That comes in handy for people like me who always misspells things. Another bummer on the Fascinate is that it doesn't come with Google search, but comes with Bing. I personally like Google, but was easily able to delete Bing and add Google. Also, I dont like that some pre-installed applications can not be erased from the phone. Who needs ten pre-installed trial games. To me, they just take up memory space that I could be using for something else. The email application isn't the best either. It only holds one account at a time. If you are a business person, that might be a little rought for you. The battery life could also be improved. I seem to have to plug my phone in quite often or it is dead on me. I would say I get about 4-5 hours off a fully charged battery.

Overall, for the price I paid for it, it is a pretty nice phone. I would suggest it to anybody looking for a decently priced Android phone. It is one of the better phones that I have owned and has had the least amount of operating problems. I think the first phone I got must have just been a lemon, because this one has been great for me!
