Texting Machine!

from Phonedog
Pro: It has a great camera and good sound quality on the mp3 especially and its very durable and strong and I love the qwerty keyboard Con: It turns off alot and the battery power runs out too quickly Using experience: 7 months The phone is awesome! Id recommend this phone to anyone. I'd also make sure I'd keep the charger somewhere close.

Pro: full qwerty keyboard; usb mass storage makes it easier to add and remove mp3s (on your computer); bold styling; cameras has plenty of options; mp3 player sounds great; sleek and smooth shape; tough as nails; comes with free headset! Con: shuts if you have too much going on; supports limited sound file types and only mp3 for the music player; plastic can get a little greasy real easily; not a smart phone (like most dummie call it); could use more themes for the user interface. Using experience: 6 months i've had this phone for about for about half a year and i haven't has any major beef with it. texting is a breeze and very fun. the mp3 played does getting interupted when you get a text, and theres no background mode option whats-so-ever but thats no big deal. i've dropped it plenty of times, on tile and the street, and it hasn't caused any serious damage. battery life is mild depending if you use it a little or a lot. overall i love this phone and i'd recommend it souly for the hard core texters.

Pro: I love the phone because it's just so ME! It's cute and green love the camera on it, I think it's amazing. I'm not really an electronic wiz so thats pretty much what I have tosay about it. I recommended it to a lot of people. Con: Like I said I'm no electronic wiz but I really hate that I follwed the instructions and i still can't manage to get the memory card to work in my phone. I even went and got another memory card and followed the directions and it still doesn't work. I called the samsung people but the lady that i talked to didn't really help me, not to say that everyone there isn't helpful but i am going to call again to see what the problem is. Other than that I don't see anything else wrong with it. Oh there is Using experience: 3 days If anyone knows about the memory card can you please send me an email or post your review with your possible solution? cerbeverly@yahoo.com Less
