Galaxy Halo is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 197.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it I was looking for a phone when my Galaxy Amp Prime broke and Cricket said they couldn't replace it so I made the decision of buying this and I must say PLEASE don't buy this. I haven't even used it one day and when the phone is on low brightness the screen brightness flickers. The phone itself is too big. The software is out of date when compared to the Galaxy Amp Prime and the Galaxy Amp Prime 2. For being more expensive than the Galaxy Amp Prime 2 all you get is a larger screen, outdated software, bugs, glitches and an overall mess of an excuse for a phone. I will definitely be getting the Galaxy Amp Prime 2 when I get enough money

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad.. I've had this phone for about week.. the screen is a nice size not to big not to small. Good picture, nice for watching movies and playing games. The battery last most the day with heavy use. The only problem I've seem to have, is the swipe on the keyboard... is not very accurate and I have to delete words allot and retype them all the time. It's kinda annoying but manageable. Otherwise I would give it 5 stars. Other then that I'm very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Galaxy ~ just as good as the 'big' guys I switched to Cricket a year ago in part to not buy another $500 - $600 phone. I went from a Galaxy S4 to the inexpensive Alcatel Flint, which is basically a Galaxy imitation. For the $50 it cost me, it was fine for a year, bit I missed my Galaxy. The Halo is an awesome Galaxy phone, every bit as good as the 'high end' edition, and I've had 3 of those. This phone is loaded with quick, intuitive features, including great call quality, internet speed, screen, camera, all of it. For $100, it is a killer bargain, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big bang for the buck I am thrilled that the Halo came down in price. I snagged this phone as soon as it went on promotion for $50. In essence, you are getting a larger display Galaxy S5 equivalent phone. Great display, long battery life even with high utilization (It's a pretty large, removable battery but doesn't add much weight), good sound, and good call quality. 2gig RAM, 16gig storage, (32gig after moving over my 16gig MicroSD). Plays videos and games decently. Photos are decent for a phone. For those that don't care about gadgitude and want a good quality phone for not a lot of money, this is it. Wife is wanting to upgrade her S4 to this unit after playing with mine because of the bigger display for TV shows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty cool phone! I have wanted a Samsung Galaxy S....whatever since the 5, but the prices are out of my range. Recently saw the Halo and it seemed to have just about everything I could want or need. I have not been disappointed, and can not think of anything I would change (except make it water resistant as well!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Phone I've had I've only had this phone for a little less than a week and it's great! Compared to my older phones ( LG k3, moto g3) this thing is an animal. The battery last me a whole day with hard usage. It's fast, it's fun, it's a good all rounder. For it's price this is one of my best investments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Poor Mans Galaxy S7 I previously had the Galaxy S7 through AT&T. The monthly bill was ridiculous and I had to find a cheaper plan. I switched to Cricket a couple months ago and have been very happy so far. The Galaxy Halo is similar in size and features to the S7, but lacks all the bells and whistles. On the downside, the camera sucks. You can only zoom to 4.0 and poor picture quality. Buy a micro SD card for extra memory and then enjoy the low monthly payments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this phone This is one of the best phones esp for the price. I love the fact that it has a removable battery, i wouldn't even consider a phone without this feature. I also love the speed and power. Big screen is a big plus, although it could have been slightly bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone! Does everything I want it to. I bought this phone 4 days ago after much research. I'm used to a Galaxy S6,which I broke the screen on for the second time and wasn't replacing it again. It takes great photos,the screen quality is great,and its fast. I never have to wait for anything to load. The call quality is good it was fun to customize. If you are undecided on a new phone,this is a really good one and worth the money. The volume could be a little louder on music and video playback.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase I reviewed a lot of phones before buying this one in late August. Great phone especially for the money. I've had Samsung phones before and never been disappointed. Great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mid-priced phone. I ordered this phone for my brother. He is not particularly easy to please, but he has had nothing but positive comments about this phone. He is especially happy with the long battery life and fast functionality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good phone for the buck. I had a Samsung s4galaxy for years. great phone. It started to act up. How does a expensive phone like that act up. I dont know but I will not buy the high price ones ever again. This is a great phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery is the best So I had gotten an iPhone 6s plus and while that was a great phone it was not what I wanted. I returned that phone to purchase this one. I was needing a phone that the battery would last me all day. The iPhone was not cutting it. I have had this phone for a week now and when I check the battery usage and it says you have 11hours left you jump for joy. The overall usage for this phone is great and handlly beats the older iPhones. I have to say that I was just getting the phone for the battery and wow is it good. If you are looking for a phone that will stay charged for 12+ hours with moderate usage get this phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cant Beat it for the Price Previously I have always had Samsung products. ON my last phone adventure I had switched to alcatel. That was a mistake. I had my alcatel phone for 90 days or so and it broke, it force closed all the time. wouldnt even run something simple like facebook without locking up. It came time to replace the broken alcatel. I did some research on the zte and the lg as well as the samsung. Problem is the samsung is so expensive for the s6, s7, and s8. I dont want to make a payment on a phone. When I went in to my local cricket store I was short on time and wanted to get a reliable phone that did what I wanted it too. I have had this phone now for 5 days and I have to say I am very impressed. The camera is lower pixel then I thought I wanted but the pictures and video seem fine compared to what I am used too. I play music on my phone alot and this one has an ample speaker. I do some gaming and some social media on my phone and it handles it all with ease. The processor is fast enough I do not have to wait on anything as of yet. It does only come with a limited amount of internal storage but the sd card slot can make up for all that. Most phones have an internal battery now adays which in my opinion stinks, but this one has a removable battery and a big one. I charged it to 100% and played with it all day last weekend and didnt have to plug it in finished the day with around 38% and I was trying to run it all the way down. All in cannot go wrong here. If this phone isnt enough for you i am not sure any phone will do. Especially anywhere around this price point. I dont normally write reviews but I am impressed. Check this phone out you wont be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice phone I bought this phone about 2 weeks ago and so far I don't have a single complaint! Fast and responsive doesn't hang up (freeze) like a lot of cheaper phones but also won't break the bank like the iPhone or high end Samsung's.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from First Impressions It's a big phone, a bit of a clunker. One of the deciding factors was the big battery, thinking it would go longer on charge. But, it has to power that bigger phone. Reality is it discharges about as fast as my old smaller phone. It had an extremely annoying screen when first activated with ads, but it went away after a few days. Had some issues with the GPS tracking app in one area, will see if it is ok at home. Also bluetooth with my car and headset has a couple of hiccups, will see if that works out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good Just got it today (7/1/17). Has replaceable battery, in case you were wondering with so many Samsung Galaxy J7 (2017) models out there. It's the J7AZ. Looks just like an S7 but plastic body. Quick processor

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Samsung phone and new service I got my new Samsung Halo about a month ago, along with new Cricket wireless service and I love it. The support team has also been great.
Date published: 2017-12-03
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Returned I'm not sure whether it was the phone or Cricket's service, but my voice would cut out where the other person was unable to hear me, even though I could hear them clearly. It took me almost 2 and a half hours with various agents (was disconnected twice) to finally get the return authorization. They assured me I would get a full refund, but I only got back the money for the phone, not the $25 upgrade fee. So I paid for an upgrade, but am still using my old cracked phone. I will be switching to Verizon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Defect in reading SD card so it was returned I was really disappointed the phone kept telling me there was Insufficient memory on the SD card when in fact the SD card had over 30 GB free and was working in the old phone so I returned the Halo for a refund. It worked better than the Amp Prime I have with better reception. The other disappointment was in the Settings, it had much fewer options than the Amp Prime. I did like the size of the screen and the sound quality.
