Best so far

Posted on: June 10th, 2007 by John asdfjl

The good: ease of use, hold's tons of music, doesn't feel flimsy, feels like qualitiy, great reliability.The bad: discontinued already as all do. Text messaging, I do miss the itaps of motorola brand phones offer, but there are ways around that.Summary: This is the best phone I've ever had. Some bad reviews have said bad things about the music abilities of this phone. If you have a brain and can use a computer, just get a Micro SD chip, they are cheap, and throw all the songs on there you want, I load mine with tons of songs with no problem. As long as you understand this song plays wma sound files like windows media player, which is why they want you to sync your phone to windows media player. Just connect your SD card to your computer, like any external drive, and paste all the songs you want. I've had no problems with mine at all. You can listen to your music with no special adapters, with nothing like speaker phone, or with your regular earbud. Camera is decent for it being a cell phone, but remember, its a cell phone not a camera, its a phone not an mp3 player. This phone has the best overall selection of options with the reliability unlike all of the other phones I've owned!

Samsung's SCH-A930 (Verizon)

Posted on: April 9th, 2007 by Disturbed One

The good: Nice CameraAuto FlashWMA Song/Ring tone PlayerSmall Form FactorNo bulky external antennaEasy to read external displayExternal WMA controlsLight for Taking VideosUnlimited or MMS Video takingExpandable Memory (Micro SD)Unique dialing fonts (animated)Plastic covers for all the plug ins (charger, ear piece, memory)External Stereo Speakers for Songs, Ringers, Sounds, and Speaker PhoneThe bad: Battery Life is So-SoExternal buttons pressed very easily, I'm always having my MP3 turning on because the button accidentally gets pressedNo "Button Lock" featurePhone supports MP3's, but doesn't offer it.No Vibe and Ring for AlarmSlow Camera start up.Summary: I upgraded from my LG 7000, which was a great phone.But even though its years old, it still seems to be better at a few things than this.I really like the 1.3MP camera, and it has a nice flash, but no "Night Mode"The video camera is very nice as well, you can take very large videos and save them on your computer.I had to choose between this phone and the LG 8300, having been with LG for most of my Cell Phone usage, I actually passed them down.From what I've read and used, the Samsung was the way to go.Speaker phone is great quality, just don't turn it up to loud when you have it open, or the person your talking to will get to talk to themselves.All and All this is a great phone.And since I only paid $70 for it on a one year contract with Verizon, I can't complain.

Pretty Good

Posted on: October 31st, 2006 by Mike Pinkerton

The good: Good phone capability, MP3 player, voice dialing, speakerphone and bluetoothThe bad: Comes with very small built in mempry (30 mb or so). Have to add a Micro SD to really have more than a few songs, pics, and videos. Web services expensive.Summary: Great phone for me - needed the phone features (voice dial, speakerphone, bluetooth) and like the MP3 playing capability. I dont use the v-cast, navigation, and other web stuff so dont really care.

Love This Phone!

Posted on: September 21st, 2006 by J. Bergman

The good: Great looking phone ... features are easily accessible from all angles.The bad: Does get a little warm to the face over long conversations.Summary: Love the Samsung cellphones. They have come a long way. My prior Samsung had its problems with ... falling apart ... could have been the few times I dropped it but I think they finally realized these phones need a little more durability.

Samsung did it again!

Posted on: June 6th, 2006 by Sandra Oxford

The good: So far so good with my new a930 by Samsung. After owning many different models, I would have to say that the reception has been so much better on the a930 than any other. Other pros include the quality of the speaker phone, the battery life, camera, bluetooth, and all around shape and size.The bad: If your a music lover stay away because this does not play mp3's. Try out the new Fusic or V3m for music!Summary: For me this new Samsung has been excellent. Lastly, I would like to report that I have traveled out of town twice since getting this new phone and had no complications. The phone rang, I answered, and the person on the other end heard me. It doesn't get any better then that! :-)
