samsung rant

Posted on: January 9th, 2010 by Marshall Mathers

The good: great keyboard. tough. good coverage.The bad: lags a tad. Summary: this is the toughest yet most stylish slide out phone on the market. i've dropped mine countless times, causing it to turn off, but when it turns back on it works like a charm.

Samsung Rant Review

Posted on: July 4th, 2009 by Matt Flick

The good: QWERTY board, Sprint one-click, build qualityThe bad: email client (not the best but its passable), camera Summary: After having this phone for about 5 months I can happily say that I made the right decision. This phone is perfect for the social networker in you, from its facebook client to the slide out qwerty board. The build quality is amazing I think Samsung and Sprint did a fantastic job.

Social life

Posted on: February 17th, 2009 by Josh Montero

The good: Full Sliding keyboard, up to 700 contacts, Built in music player, Replaceable Battery, 2.0 Megapixel Camera and camcorder, built in micro sd card, The bad: Short Battery life, slow internet, Freezes alotSummary: Overall the Rant is built for you social life, anyone who love texting and communicating with friends would love the rant. Also, don't be afraid to take lots of pictures and videos with a 2.0 Megapixel camera and a built in Micro SD card. It freezes alot for me, also when I go into my ringers it mixes up words like for example it would say " Welcome to the Jungle by Jackson 5" or "ABC by Rihanna

One of the best Qwerty keyboard phones.

Posted on: February 3rd, 2009 by Addy (demon kitty) Miller

The good: I love it's smooth and glamourous feel and look. It Has sprint one-click, which i'm in love with right now. The texting quality of the phone is amazing. I love every bit of it. I like the internet browser too. I LOVE how you can customize your carousel. All the important stuff in the one-click. And you can add your shortcuts too. The sprint navigation feature is cool too. At first I though the battery life sucked, but I found out you've got to decharge your phone all the way, and then charge it.The bad: Okay, I have like only two about this.The internet browser is okay, but it doesn't give you a full browser experience.The camera on the phone is kinda weird you've gotta hold it for a little then it'll take the picture.Summary: In all, I say the samsung rant is 4.5 out of five. I hope people do the decharge technique, it really helps. I say this is a great phone for teenagers, and people who like to text a lot.

Good Phone

Posted on: November 28th, 2008 by Anonymous

The good: Fast, one click is easy. GPS is great. txting is fast. software tools, light, not too big, GREAT loud, FOR CHECKING EMAIL.The bad: Battery life sucks! although when down to one bar, it does last! No flash! Camera has a horrible lag! worst camera. web browser crashes, no realiableSummary: This is one of the better phones i have had. It small easy to use, and fast. It needs some crucial improvements like battery life, and the 3 second camera lag! plus I flash would be great too. Good, but not great. txting is a blast. I would like more software skins.

Rant Review

Posted on: November 15th, 2008 by Anonymous

The good: Easy to use on txt and navigatingThe bad: Battery life extremely sucks!Summary: I researched for best coverage around my house and sprint had stated it had best. Whether inside or outside my house I barely had 3 bars or less so false advertisement on that factor. I'm considering returning the phone since im within my 30 days so we'll see what happens. Elaboration on poor battery life is going thru my emails or checking the weather for the day and not even using more then 5 mins. of my web has caused my batt from full bars to end of the day by 1 if not dead and beeping. I mean c'mon! I want something that has a decent batt life im not expecting full on dead by the end of the day!!!

Greatest phone ever

Posted on: November 14th, 2008 by Anonymous

The good: Qwerty keyboard, hot red color, nice camer/camcorder, nice sound quality, durable, stylish, great reception, good battery life, The bad: 3.5 head jack wud have been nice, no flash but its still goodSummary: I LOVE this phone! about last year i purchased a piece of crap lg rumor. it worked for me because i could text. until it messed up and i returned it and got a newer one. but that happend to mess up just like the first one. so i decided to go with the samsung m520. though its a very good reliable phone it was to simple looking and could have been better. when i saw the samsung rant i purchased it asap..luckly it came out the month of my upgrade. this has been the best phone by far!!! i would recommend it to anyone. great investment
