Samsung's Axle phone is a piece of Ax Murderer software crap. Try saving an entry into January and it won't take -- expirec date. Crap! Enter entries into groups and after 8 in a group, it says it's full. More crap. The alarm clock offers 3 entries but only takes two - try a third and it says it's full. Still more crap.

For a phone with 53 mb of ram, this is an inflexible phone with problems about which Samsung is aware but can't seem to (or won't) fix.

This phoney phone makes LG look good by comparison.
