I have had two or three samsung phones and they always die on me after about six months. They work great in the beginning but after 6 months or so they start to act funny. The first phone I had the screen stopped working. Then I got the samsung galaxy ace and it worked great...until I had to start rebooting it 3-5 times a day to receive messages and it keeps freezing. I'm not rough on my phones either, Wondering if anyone else has problems with samsung, because now I'm confused on what phone to get next that wont have to many troubles.

It really depends on what Samsung, Caitlyn. You mention the Ace... let me be candid: it's a HORRIBLE phone. I'm not surprised it's gone bad!!!
I'd recommend saving up for a higher end phone, such as the Galaxy S3 or S4, or the Nexus 4 (that is not Samsung though).
Sorry to hear you're having troubles, let's hope your next phone will be great :)

I agree with Sophia ^ ^ ^
The first galaxy Ace is TERRIBLE.
Are you clearing your cache, ram and using the task managers properly? What kind of apps do you download? Do you have any antivirus apps on the phone? I use LookOut antivirus and it works wonderful.
There are apps out there (ive noticed mostly in games) that they slow down the phone, and cause apps to malfunction. I had an app on my Samsung Nexus S last year that would randomly download other apps without my permission.
The Ace 2 X is a step up from the ACE, but is still a lower end Samsung Android.
I currently use the S3 and i have yet to find a serious problem. The samsung keyboard malfunctioned, so i bought the SwiftKey app which corrected my issue.
The best samung androids that koodo carries are the SIIX, S3 and S4. The LG Nexus 4 is an excellent option as well (you just cant take the battery out).

As Sophia mentioned the Ace isn't a great performer and the same could be said for the bulk of the low-mid range Android devices. So if you can next time you upgrade go for one of the higher end devices Shopia mentioned.

If that is not an option, the Nokia Lumia device they have will likely be the best performer if your looking for a cheap device tho it may lack some app since it is a WP8 device.
