"Best Phone so far........"

The good: Durable, two batteries, GPS, Mobile Hotspot via tethering or bluetooth, Live search- say it and it finds it. Fast Fast if on good EVDO network. The bad: ???????????????? No longer produced, too good of phone. Summary: This Samsung M800 is by far the best phone for what I require in a mobile electronic device. Phone, GPS, MP3 player, live TV and Radio,news and weather, Google Earth works well. The ability to connect via bluetooth 2.0 or tether to a Laptop for Internet access anywhere... more...

"Samsung Instinct SUCKS Out Loud!!!"

The good: User friendly The bad: Not wear and tear friendly, If you are not even hard on a cell phone, then You as well will AGREE this phone sucks! I had to file three insurance claims within six months after the initial (first) Instinct I purchased due to this phone not working properly, or the screen getting cracked/broke. Summary: Save yourself the money and hassle of having to file insurance claims to replace this phone, (I mean piece of junk.) In my opinion a phone that is this... more...

"Great Phone"

The good: Live Search, Navigation, Visual Voicemail, Stereo Bluetooth, Favorites Tab, Opera Mini The bad: No Flash on Camera, Instinct Web Browser Summary: I have had the phone for 9 months and I like it. Yes I know its not an iPhone killer but I wanted the best service for the best price which was Sprint. The features on the phone are great. The features I use the most are the stereo Bluetooth which I can play music on most of the day and not worry about battery. I usually kill my... more...

"Disappointing... hardly an 'internet phone'"

The good: Horizontal texting, navigation, haptic feedback, streaming TV/music The bad: Near-worthless internet, no calendar sync, minimal apps development Summary: This is more of a messaging phone than a multimedia "iPhone killer" as it has been widely advertised in the "Instinct vs. iPhone" commercials. After 1 week of use with this phone, I gladly paid the $150 cancellation fee to get out of Sprint and defect to an iPhone. The navigation and haptic feedback are very nice. The internet... more...

"I own one. Best phone ever! Tops all!"

The good: I love this phone! It has very good response. You can adjust the sensitivity for the screen and calibrate it. Texting and typing is sooo fast. Really good conection. When my friends dont get service, i get it crystal clear. Sprint has the best and cheepest plans. I haven't had a single dropped call and i had this phone for about 7 months. It has several neat options that you can toggle on or off. This phone is very durable. It fell out of my poket millions of times and it doesn't have... more...

"Mixed Bag of Tricks and Smoke and Mirrors"

The good: The phone has many features which are eye catchers, but useful only when, rarely, there are no better alternatives. Navigation is the exception and is excellent. Nice selection of ringtones. Television is fine given current technology, but still not where is should be (it wouldn't be tolerated from a real television). Frequent automatic server backup of basic contact data. The phone has a "substantial" feel. Two batteries. The bad: The phone is constantly updating something, which... more...

"Just do your research first"

The good: Feature-rich, with its 2MP camera, nice keyboard, especially for being a touchscreen one, visual voicemail, GPS, also, looking up movie times, weather, and news is fast and easy The bad: It's got its share of bugs that make two things, in my opinion, virtually unusable. Sprint TV on this phone is horrible. If it's not a choppy picture, then it'll just be a green screen with audio. I even tried a "hack" of sorts to increase the video buffer length, which helped none. Another is the web... more...
