SOL is how I felt friday night when cricket went down for 6 hours+, the worst possible night for an outage. Kids at sitter, meeting friends and no phones.
which I correctly pointed out to everyone the caveats that you never mentioned, thank you very much.

next time maybe try avoid asking if someone's is "homeless".

720p display, 1.5GB RAM, MicroSD slot and 2600 mAh battery. Not bad at all for $50.

Completely agree about the specs for the price. That said, the design is kind of messed though, amirite?

The black and silver front, chrome bezel, gold/champagne back. Hmm.

According to Apple (and always following suit, Samsung) gold, and even putrid rose gold, are in right now. I thought these gold colors were far too 80's yuppie and would be ignored, but once again the tastes of the general public have proven me wrong.

That said, I actually like phones that contrast colors.

Oh, for sure...is the bottom of the front gold as well? If so, I could get down with the two tone, but tri-tone? Nah...I'm cool, but not THAT cool. Yet Big Grin

For sure...and I agree, and also like a splash of color now and then, but nothing too absurd. OP posted a different pic...maybe it's actually two-tone, not tri-tone? I dunno. Can't tell. If it's just gold and black, I may have to bite.

I was playing with it at local Bestbuy on Sat.
And yes! Bottom of the front and back are same-tone gold color.

Super AMOLED screen is really beautiful.

Sweet action...thanks for the confirmation! Repped kind sir Smilie

* Quick question though...did you notice whether the display is pentile or not? I had a Galaxy Alpha with a 720p Super AMOLED display that was pentile. It was a GREAT phone, but the display (albeit generally stunning) always kinda annoyed me just a bit.

Some reviews say that only 2gb is available. Not enough.
