Samsung Galaxy Precedent Review

Rating: 

Average: 3.9 (21 votes)

This is a nice phone, but it appears people’s thoughts about the Sprint network (this is the network that Straight Talk uses on this phone) is exactly what was feared. We got no coverage in Phoenix and we are not the only ones. Please let us know if you have had success where you live!

The phone is like any Android it is easy to use and the touch screen is good, battery life is fantastic, and you have access to the awesome apps on the Android Market place. The WiFi works well. There doesn’t appear to be any lock downs for any functions. Great phone 8/10! Coverage 0/10

Straight Talk has announced that the Samsung Galaxy Precedent will before September 2011 hit the shelves. This news will come as a shock to many, but there is no doubt this will sell like a California wild fire. One thing this is going to also do is stick it to the phone dealers with their nasty plans. So an everyday Joe like you and me can now have an Android, and unlimited Internet, calls and text. This phone is said to be on the Sprint Network. link: Sprint coverage map

My straight talk phone is on the Sprint network. It works great when I have service. there are a lot of dead area around the country, where there is no sprint service. I am an over the road truck driver, and I also carry a backup phone which is on Verizon. It always has service.

ok look here is what you need to do if you want this phone to work. you have to download bloatfrezzer or task killer advanced,adw adavnced launcher pro juice defender pro. then you have to turn the animation you also have to turn off live wallpaper. then using the bloat or task end the apps you dont need or want running these slow down the phone and use battery power. turn off the enable plugins from your browser. the juice pro helps extend the life of the battery by 40%. load the launcher and get a new home screen ... doing all this will solve most of these issues also you may need to upgrade your battery from the standard which wasnt designed to handle the added load thus the overheating. you can also root your phone to give you even more options just be careful doing this will make the warranty void and there is a chance you can brick it if you do it wrong.

Coverage

ATT service works very well in rural areas. Have never had zero bars except in a "club" in Fort Worth.

This phone is awful! Poor signal everywhere! I can hardly use the phone at all even when everyone else around me has full signal. low battery life, low storage space. Freezes up often. SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT AND A WASTE OF MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!

(problems charging battery)

Comment: 

Does her phone get hot when charging? if so, you need to try putting the phone on top of an air vent (ac) or in front of a window unit wile charging, you must lower the temp of the phone and battery wile charging. this is just to get you by untile you can buy a new battery. also make sure your using the origanal charger for the phone...

This phone is on the Sprint

Comment: 

This phone is on the Sprint network and is very limited since it is an android. I have one and am returning it because of the VERY limited coverage.
