Samsung Galaxy Light Review

 

With the Galaxy Light, Samsung is proving that it can scale its smartphone design and production costs. After hitting home runs with the Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4, and Galaxy Note 3, Samsung is bringing some of its most noticeable aesthetics and features...

Samsung Galaxy Light

 

If you're seeking an affordable Android phone on T-Mobile, the Samsung Galaxy Light is a serious choice. There's nothing flashy or even particularly interesting about a this 4-inch, entry-level smartphone that just looks like a slightly mutated Samsung...

The Samsung Galaxy Light gives you 4G LTE, a decent processor, and a pocket-friendly form for under $250. Call quality is strong, too.

Camera images seemed dull and soft on the Light's 5-megapixel shooter, and the 4-inch screen makes the virtual keyboard feel cramped.

Buy the Samsung Galaxy Light if you're looking for Android on a budget -- just be aware that you're trading price for performance.

Samsung Galaxy Light (T-Mobile)

 

Thanks to its LTE support and solid call quality, the Samsung Galaxy Light stands as a good value for entry-level Android smartphones on T-Mobile.

Solid feature set for the price. 4G LTE enabled. Great call quality

Mediocre battery life. Middling camera

Remember the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit, aka the Galaxy S III Mini? As if two versions weren't enough, Samsung and T-Mobile have teamed up for yet another iteration of this diminutive Android smartphone. The Galaxy Light ($216 direct) adds LTE and NFC, and...

Wrong size SIM Card

 

I can't believe I got the wrong size SIM. The SIM number matched the number printed on the outside of the box. Also there was no activation code number.

Got on sale for $99 ; Nice phone for the price

SIM Card that came in the box didn't fit ; Got regular SIM but phone needed MicroSIM ; Need to spend $10 to get a T-Mobile MicroSIM card

Awesome deal, especially with $40 T-Mobile plan

 

I turned off the Wi-Fi calling like many people have recommended, and I have not had any problem with signal strength. You really do not need Wi-Fi calling if you have unlimited minutes.

This is an amazing phone for the price. It does everything you expect from a smart phone. The battery life is good; it usually has about 70% of the battery left at the end of the day after a moderate amount of use. The wireless hot spot (tethering)...

You have to avoid heavy internet use with the 500 GB data plan. You can always upgrade for more money

Ridiculously good value

 

Had to get rid of my otherwise nice HTC Wildfire S due to intolerable lack of on-Phone flash (couldn't install apps any more.) iPhone ruled out due to rapacious pricing. Wi-Fi calling, hotspot a requirement, so needed a T-Mobile certified phone. Most...

Not too big (unlike most all Androids), fast CPU, plenty of memory, SD slot, 4G, Wi-Fi calling, Wi-Fi hotspot. Wireless reception solid. Good battery life. Battery easily replaceable. Speaker tolerable ; CRAZY value @ $119 (vs. $550 for iPhone 5c??)

So-so fit/finish - the "skin" at the bottom of the battery cover is peeling away a bit on mine

Great Smartphone

 

The call quality and speed of the web on this phone (T-Mobile) is amazing. I'm coming from having owned 2 previous iPhones and this phone honestly does everything the iPhone can do + more. Why pay contract prices or finance your phone.

1 gig of RAM, removable battery, micro SD card slot. smooth running phone, great reception in my area 4G, 4G LTE, very fast phone and smooth operating

none that i can come up with

Basically, not satisfied with phone. In the end, Samsung said that since it's new, return it. Newegg per thier policy for new unlocked cell phones refuses to take it back once the box is open and will only make exchange if the phone is defective as...

Affordable as Smartphones go

Poor battery life, poor picture quality, calls constantly dropped, WiFi Calling" feature on T-Mobile Smartphones does not work. Experience made worse by Samsung & newegg
