Is Samsung reliable? In particular W531? My good old nokia was stolen and am out to buy a new one when this caught my eye. However I have been told by many of my friends that all Samsung phones crap out after a wee while or so. Is this true with this particular one, or all?

I wouldn't say all Samsung's are crap, althrough previous models such as the N361 and N391 don't have a great name.

Overall I would say the Samsung W531 is a good phone. It has a great display and is easy to use.

If *all* Samsungs were duds after short periods of time, why would ANY carrier carry the brand???? Its just a ridicuolously uninformed thing to say.

Its a good wee phone for the money. Good keypad except the 'ok' key is a bit small and recessed. A texting issue which was replaced with a new texting issue in the new firmware (search for 'paradoxsn w531' for more info).

Great battery life. Nice small slim phone.
