I really liked this phone when I first got it. It seemed like a pretty good deal, nice and light weight, quick, 4g, etc. It had a bunch of spamware on it but you know what you're getting yourself into if you've dealt with metro before. it took me three days to figure out how to disable the popup ads on the first phone i got from them, some samsung hackberry. you can delete some but not all of the preloaded apps which is kind of annoying. the battery is anemic but whatever. i have a charger at home, work and in the car and rarely run completely out. maybe once a week. the fatal flaw, which you probably won't notice until you've had the phone for a couple weeks, is that there's no digital zoom on the camera. it seems like they somehow forgot it, but no. samsung is slick like that. they've done it with at least one other model (Nexus S). you'd think you could just download an app that's got a zoom feature, right? think again. those apps don't give you zoom either, because the samsung galaxy attain doesn't support it. i got on their chat support and was told they have no plans to fix it. lots of people say digital zoom is really just cropping. not really. digital zoom is in realtime, which is critical to people who buy phones like this. you typically want to be quick on the draw to capture the things around you, but the samsung galaxy attain will never let you do that. and by the time you realize it, you might be past your return period, and metro will tell you to go scratch. why haven't more reviewers pointed this out? i feel tricked. to be fair: if you don't care about camera features, this phone is a good bargain. me on the other hand, i'm still in denial. i'm pissed that i'm stuck with a phone that does not support any form of camera zoom. there is an app development group that said they would work on it, so if you want that info, maybe we can get them a little kickstarter campaign goin. anyway, i'm giving this piece of crap a 2/5 until there's a zoom workaround.
