  1. I purchased this phone and it is awesome. However I promptly returned it to Sprint because it’s not 16g as advertised. The preinstalled apps and files use up over half of the 16g and you cannot add or move apps to the 32g SD card I installed. Lots of awesome features but my old HTC EVO meets my needs better than this phone. Sprint has no idea if and when the 32 or 64g versions will be released. Buyer beware this phone may not meet your needs for long. Insufficient memory and false advertisement. I don’t know what Samsung was thinking messed this one up big time.
