Alan, Liskeard Business or web user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
The galaxy fit has a very easy user interface which allows quick access to all your apps. The touch screen is very responsive and is pretty easy to see out side in the sun. Putting a micro sd card for extra memory into the phone is as easy as ABC and just as easy to remove.
Bad points:
The fit does not have a led light for taking pictures in low light which is always a very handy feature. It can be a little slow in getting onto the internet but when it has loaded a page it does run smooth.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
As already reviewed this phone a few weeks back, this is an update, and confirms what most other reviewers had to say. This is my first mobile that isn't just a basic phone for emergencies. Bought a month ago as PAYG, the phone is for occasional use only, a job it does just fine. Fit combines my essentials in one very functional android device - phone, excellent MP3 player, backup camera/video, radio, accessible internet/email plus further shortcut apps to specific websites, maps, etc ... Big plus is wi-fi works well at home, saves turning on PC all the time to check emails/websites, and even picked up email from support organiser's open network wi-fi signal at rock concert last night. Screen clear and reasonable even in daylight, needs scaling up for smaller print - quickly got used to pinched fingers swipe method, and reacts fairly quickly. Quick to switch automatically from portrait to landscape view. Phone pauses MP3 player when someone rings. Mine was the Orange PAYG budget option and came with basic instructions, home charger, USB connector, 2Gb micro SD card plus adapter, no earphones though which are required for radio nor car charger which come with more expensive options. Plenty of essential accessories like bigger micro card, protective case, screen cover available from usual websites. Not too heavy nor too big for male trouser pocket. To do anything like downloading pictures, music and so on after connecting phone to PC can be done by standard clicking/dragging from Samsung to PC. Samsung's Kies app is downloadable to the PC and is functional. It is probably needed to update Samsung phone software. Haven't let charge run down, but playing MP3 player for four hours still left it half it charged. As I'm an ageing but ex-computer teacher I'm pretty computer literate, it's been a fairly short learning curve. At this price, a gem, but can't compare to any other phone. Bought primarily on Computer Shopper magazine's recommendation. Phone has been around long enough for reviews on internet to help out with problems other users have solved, or not.
Bad points:
It's slow moving back/forward between internet sites and not just because of available RAM which is limited but plenty even when running a few other apps. On screen keypad takes a bit of getting used to. Often quicker using predictive text in standard portrait keypad rather than smaller keys on qwerty landscape screen which needs daintier fingers than mine. Not tried swype method yet. Phone has frozen once while using video and didn't know how to reset it till I got home - hold down power button for 8-10 seconds. As noted above, I got the budget box with minimal instructions, but full instructions are well worth reading and downloadable from Samsung website. Didn't realise I was initially sometimes paying for internet downloads via the phone network for a couple of days till I checked my phone credit. Eventually worked out I had to use Settings app to turn off 'Use packet data' which is in 'Mobile networks' option which in turn is in 'Wireless and networks'. Although it was supposed to come with a month's free insurance, when I tried to cancel, it took several phone calls to Dialacover and emails to Dialaphone to find out insurance had not been set up. It was reassuring to find both companies replied quickly and politely.
