No paint construction good for basic rough use

Just reactivated this phone after the nightmare I had with two LG Chocolate phones. This phone is made with colored material plastic so there is no paint to scratch or shiny surface to scrape. I tend to be rough on phones, however, this phone is still around to be reactivated, looks about the same when new. The slowly blinking front led light (green normal/ red call incoming) separate from time date, was great when trying to find in the dark. This is a very durable basic phone if you work in a rough environment and dont care about the extras.With the Original leather cover, it is even tougher. Now the downside- 1. No camera..never used one as much as I thought I would. 2. Basic with no bluetooth. Less

I got the phone with a 2 year contract which expired 6 months ago. I've been using it since then without a contract and have had no problems with it whatsoever. Battery life is still good, no echo that I've read in other reviews, it still works the exact same way as the day I took it out of the box. All I wanted was a simple phone without the extra fluff and features, and I got exactly that. It was perfect for what I wanted it for and has served me well. Less

Breakup

I don't like it....when I'm on a call I constantly hear the other person breaking up. I should have spent the extra couple bucks for a better phone instead of signing up on a 3 year deal.

Bad Echo

I like the look and size of the phone but people get a bad echo when they talk to me.

It is what it's worth

In the spirit of getting what you pay for... this is it. For me I just wanted a phone that worked with no fancy features and that's what it is. I agree that the battery life isn't the greatest but it's far from the worst. I don't really like the way some of the menu options are set up and I don't...More
In the spirit of getting what you pay for... this is it. For me I just wanted a phone that worked with no fancy features and that's what it is. I agree that the battery life isn't the greatest but it's far from the worst. I don't really like the way some of the menu options are set up and I don't like that you can't set any specific rings to vibrate. You can only set the main ringer or the whole phone to vibrate. But.. overall... I'm happy with it. It does exactly what I wanted it to do. Less

Good Job Samsung*

Sweet Phone overall! Lightweight with good signal. I found the batterey to go the distance and have room for a call showing zero battery! Advanced voice prompts and easy colorful display. I give it a 10+ thanks for technolgy evolution Jesus & Buddha!

A Pretty Good Phone

the battery doesn't last very long. It has Get It Now, voice record, calendar, alarm clock, memo pad, world time, calculator, count down, voice dial, and more. it's a decent phone. looks cool.
Sorry. We didn't find any good Samsung SCH-A570 videos yet. Please check back soon or contact us to suggest one.
