Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Smart Phone This is my first smart phone, Samsung Quality at a good price. Cricket has good plans and good coverage nation wide that you will not loose a signal when you travel. Had the phone a couple of weeks, still learning it. Really good phone with a lot of bells and whistles at a good price. Had that glitch when talking and no one can hear you one time, I quick switched it to speaker and the glitch went away, then I took it off speaker and it did not do it again. If you research you will find that it has nothing to do with the microphones, it is a glitch that happens to a lot of the Samsung phones once in a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone! Best Bang for Buck phone! Honestly, its a watered down version of the galaxy S6 is the best way to describe it. Awesome phone. The bad reviews on this phone are a bunch of nonsense. I have had it about a month and enjoy it. Looks very sleek and its a brand you can trust that makes the best android phones on the market. Highly recommend. Best $30 I have spent on a phone. Feel like I should have paid $100. Much better than going with an off brand phone. Better than Alcatel, ZTE, LG, or Motorola in my opinion. It looks better aesthetically and is as durable as any other Samsung phone I have owned. Best Cricket phone on site.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone For Great Price I have only had this phone for a couple of weeks at the time of this review. I am blown away at how great this phone really works. I gave up my iphone 5s for a bigger screen and I am not disappointed. I must say I was giving the apple product for a year or so and always wanted to come back to android. One of my friends had the Galaxy Amp Prime. so I checked it out and fell in love with all of it's features. I have not missed anything since getting my GAP. except for the 8 megapixels Samsung GAP has 5 megapixels. But honestly, no big deal since I do take pictures with our professional camera anyway. I give the Samsung GAP 9 out of 10 just for the camera. This is a great phone and I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BUYER BEWARE, read online reviews 1st. I am a HUGE Samsung&Motorola fan and would LOVE for Motorola to release a new phn, however, I HAD a SGAP and absolutely loved this phone for 2 months then the problems began, ALWAYS had storage issues, texts WOULD NOT come through and making/receiving calls let's say you had better odds aas the shooter at a craps table. I thought it was my settings but quickly found other people with this phone HAD THE SAME ISSUES. I did like most of the features minus PRE- LOADED apps( ABSOLUTELY H8 THEM( on any phone) they are wasted space, the specifications are wonderful though, atleast they were for me. That said BEWARE OF THIS MODEL PHONE!!!!!
