    Being a long time note user running through the Note 1, 2, 3 and Edge yes, I'd honestly say there's probably more Samsung Bloat TouchWiz app's than you've seen with LG, they even go as far as to having their own App Store too, but even more special features too as well... Although Sammies are impossible to hard brick and make it recover from any eff up's you'd probably make, far more and wider vast development community, because of how popular a manufacture they are, also more accessories. They make decent phones though, I just stepped away from the note series since they stopped having removable batteries in them. You'll prolly be the first to see new android builds either by developers or the manufacture themselve, I'd say go for it, worst case is you'd have to root and debloat.

    Just to add, I like the LG "budget" phones (under $200) better than the Samsung budget phones. I know nothing about the Galaxy J3 so I can't comment on that one.

    It's just too bad you got the Boost version of the Stylo vs the Metro/T-mobile version.

    I'm a big supporter for Samsung,especially the galaxy line,so my opinion will be one sided-I'll start off by saying they're design is well constructed,sleek and very portable,as well as well as excellent optimal performance and with well designed os software that isn't majorly complicated so it's adaptable for the user to use;now yes some may come with bloat ware;and that is where Development steps in,there are many variables of roms for samsung that there is definitely a programming for anyone.(I don't care for bloat ware either so I favor the slimkat ROM)witch trims the program down to it minimal yet smoothly operating capacity,so if your deciding to give Samsung and any type of there model brand of there phone's a test try I say go for it you'll definitely enjoy your time evaluating it.but you don't have to take my word for it.

    Samsung doesn't give you a bloated up touchwiz on mid to low range devices. I never used touchwiz anyways. Nova has been my go to launcher for years.

    I think ya accidentally added a "n't" to does. LoL

    TouchWiz is their largest most popular piece of bloatware on every device they make, so if they don't give ya that then what have they replaced their UI with now? LoL

    No I didn't actually...... Use an s4,5,6 then use a mid range Samsung device and you will notice a huge difference between them as far as bloat and performance goes.

    I just moved back to Android and there is just something about Samsung, I like it. I find their screen quality to be amazing. If you like to get involved in modifying your device, there is always great options for *Most* Samsung phones.

    While the days of SD cards are sorely missed, Samsung is still a very solid choice.

    The meaning of the Korean hanja word Samsung is "tri-star" or "three stars"

    I guess you're kind of right my mom had a generic cheapo samsung and it was minimal, although there's some that would argue that TouchWiz is bloatware, I just laugh at them... I've only ever owned premium sammy devices, so I noticed more of the extra app's, packages and added features included with them and their price and quality.

    Thanks for the input everyone.

    I just notice the "J3" had 1.5GB RAM/16GB ROM compared to Boost stylo 1GB / 8GB and that was tempting. However, the J3 screen is smaller, camera not as good, and is on KitKat. So I think I will just stick with the Stylo for awhile and wait and see what else Boost has to offer. Maybe they will come up with a Stylo 2.

    When it comes to Samsung, no SD card and removable battery are dealbreakers for me. That's why I choose either LG or HTC.

    Well they've added back the sd card due to marshmellow features, but yea the nonremovable battery is still a deal breaker to me... My last sammy device was a Note Edge and even I wasn't all that impressed with it as many others have said for some stupid reason it lagged more than the Note 4 and hardware wise they were both the same devices specs and all except for a extra lil screen.

    I wouldn't get a phone that does not have a removable battery either. The J3 though says it 's battery is removable on the Boost site.

    Just got a j3 and the battery is removable. No indicator light, which is freaky stupid.

    My question. I can't send an mms with attachments larger than 300kb. This is nuts. I've searched everywhere for an answer. Never had a phone where I couldn't increase it. And the online PDF manual is wrong. Thanks for any help.
