If you are someone who is looking for a reliable phone that has a wide array of features, you may want to consider the Samsung Galaxy Q. While basic, it is a handy phone for a professional who is constantly on the go and needs internet access, email, and document editing. Also handy when away from the office is the phone's capability to create, edit and easily share a variety of MS Word and PDF documents. When you're not working, the Q offers standard social networking integration including of course, Facebook.

Although it won't win any beauty pageants, this phone is quite lightweight, has a nice black finish, and should fit handily into a purse or pocket. Photo and video capabilities are not overly impressive but there a simple editing program included to clean up images and videos before sharing them online.

Most notable is the phone's keypad, or rather keypad(s). There is both a bright touchscreen and a more comfortable slide-out keyboard which many prefer for emailing and document editing.

The Samsung Galaxy Q is definitely an affordable yet reliable option for someone who is looking for an all-in-one, business orientated device.

More than Garabage

(about 1 month ago)

Name anything that can go wrong with a phone, and you will end up with this phone. Anything from powering off in the middle of a conversation to not being able to download the smallest picture. Can't wait to get rid of it before I throw it in the garabage.

Garbage

(3 months ago)

My Galaxy Q is a piece of garbage. Most apps takes ages for me to load or straight up freeze and shut down my phone. Also, it'll arbitrary decide to wipe itself clean from any MP3 files I add to it, so I can't use anything but the generic sounds for ringtones, alarms and various sound effects... More

Don't.

(about 1 year ago)

I've had this phone about a year now. At first I thought it was pretty good, nothing exciting but my first "smart" phone so I was getting used to that and all the new things I could do on a phone like this. And I must say one of the only good things about this phone is the flip-out QWERTY... More

Don't buy this phone!!!!!

(about 1 year ago)

I have 5 people in my home using the same carrier so i know the problem is the phone. It does whatever it wants whenever it wants. Forget about having a full conversation, the phone mutes, changes to speaker, opens random apps,or just plain hangs up on you whenever it feels like it. Extremely limited... More

Keep looking

(about 1 year ago)

I’ve had this phone for a few months and though I’m not an intensive user I have to say overall I’m pretty pleased with it – except for one problem, and it’s a deal breaker: it only has 150MB (131MB according to the specs) of internal memory, which is COMPLETELY inadequate.... More

Not good

(about 1 year ago)

I had this phone for 1.5 years. I can say there are a lot of issues a user will have when using this phone. One issue is the specifications. It has a ridiculously low internal memory and amount of RAM. Another issue are the sudden crashes this phone goes through. At times, it will crash and restart your... More

Not worth it

(about 1 year ago)

I've had this phone for months and am looking for a replacement very soon. Though it is rugged, there are a lot of errors and drawbacks.biggest drawback is the very small internal memory. After a few months, all the stupid Samsung apps that you can't delete update and take up all the space.... More

Hate this phone

(about 1 year ago)

Had this phone for a few months now and at random times it just quits working. It shows full bars service and I can't call or text or receive calls or texts. Fido sent it out for repairs once after months of me pestering them that it didn't work, but they can only send it away for repairs if... More

Three phones dead (touch screen dies) in 3 months!

(about 1 year ago)

Piece of CRAP. We ordered 2 phones for free as a upgrade in my cell contract 3 months ago. Within 3 days the screen of one was black, my daughter's lasted 2 weeks before it died. Both were replaced. After 1.5 months my daughter's is still alive but mine is dead. We hardly use the touch... More

The Galaxy Q

(over 2 years ago)

I have just received the Galaxy Q as a free upgrade from my cell phone provider. I have only had it a few weeks but I really like it. It has a lot more features than my other cell and the key board for texting is easier. The only thing I am concern about is the screen and being careful not to scratch... More
