Straight Talk Samsung SGH-T528G Review

The new Straight Talk Samsung SGH-T528G Review from Straight talk is 3G

IT"S OUT!!! and 3G!!!

This new Samsung touch phone from Straight Talk is really cool. It is packed with features such as Wi-Fi/3G and a 2 MegaPixel Camera.

It's funny how this phone came out less than a week after the Motorola EX124G on Tracfone. The phone is easy to use and is great with the 3G connection. So this is the first 3G touch screen phone to come out since the Samsung R810 Finesse, and I think this will make a lot of people happy at $99.98 at Walmart stores.

The video we took of this phone unboxing is a little long as we show more of the apps and stuff. 8/10

Additional review from: jerrhit thanks!

Ok just got this phone yesterday brand new from walmart, on the plus side its fairly cheap for what your getting,though i wish i could have afforded the one with built in voice navigation, though those didnt include both 3g and wifi. CONS:Ok i cant be the only one with somewhat large fingers that plays hell trying to hit the space bar when its horizontal, at first it was just annoying and i thought all i needed to do was calibrate the touchscreen... problem is there isnt an option to calibrate the touchscreen lol. Still though i can deal with that just by using it vertically. The connection speeds while using my home or college wifi is excellent so no complaints there, though honestly for the $150 bucks i spent i should have gotten the coby kyros touch pad at walmart instead, and coulda done almost everything i need on it, but i digress. In my opinion a great phone for the cost,just needs a way to calibrate the touchscreen

Take the back cover off the phone and take the battery out and slip the battery back into place that should reboot the phone.

Can't stand the keyboard

Comment: 

I tap 'ok' nothing happens. Only about 20% of the 'ok' and 'space bar' buttons actually clicks. Good luck figuring out which 20% you need to tap to make it work. Texts look like this. "Thanxsvforv your hel. Sevyou Saturdah" ... I don't have fat fingers, there is some sort of mapping problem with the screen and key alignment.

Comment: 

THIS PHONE SUCKS!!!! CUSTOMER SUPPORT FOR THIS PHONE SUCKS!!!!!! USER MANUAL FOR THIS PHONE SUCKS!!!! I called customer service to find out how to delete the network profiles so I can use my wifi, non english women tells me you phone no come with wifi. I tell her ah yes it does clearly on package and wifi button on phone. she again tells me no wifi on this phone. I explain that the phone has been used with wifi before that is why my network profile is full. I ask again how to delete it she tells me click all networks and push delete. AH NO CRAP REALLY would I be calling you if that worked! I would not give this phone to a homeless person in the street nor even let my dog pee on it. THIS PHONE SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tell me about it. Yes

Comment: 

Tell me about it. Yes Facebook app is great and the screens but I truly am dissatisfied and bout done with Straight Talk altogether. The whole "initializing' bull crap is annoying after it randomly turns itself off for "updates". Guess they get a couple updates a day. Right. I'm just so tired of the crappy phone. If I have an emergency and need to look up a number and my phone keeps telling me "initializing" and I can't get in my contacts I could be screwed. And every phone is crappy that I've gotten. So no don't ever get this phone.

if you're thinking of buying

Comment: 

if you're thinking of buying this phone, DON'T! I've had it for 10 months and I hate it. When I first got it, the screen would freeze and I couldn't do anything, That went away, but it turns on and off by itself and sometimes won't turn back on for days. Now I can't open my messaging menu or look at my contacts. And the camera quality is terrible. There are only a few things I like about it, such as the widgets, 3 home screens, and built-in apps for Facebook and Twitter,

Straight Talk plan has been

Comment: 

Straight Talk plan has been great (more than I could even use most months). However, the T528G phone is not so great. The touch screen is "touchy" and has never worked great. A fter 10 months of owning the phone I can barely get the screen to recognize any touches on the screen (can't return text messages, often cannot pull the menu up, etc). Would NOT recommend this phone and it seems I will need to replace it after less than a year. Will be getting something other than a samsung the next time.
