Good phone

Posted on: March 20th, 2007 by Anonymous

The good: Small, good ringtone quality, good camera w/ flash, Bluetooth capable, easy to use, extras like a tip calculator and converter (converts currency, length, temperature, etc.)The bad: The numbers on the keypad aren't very big, screen can get scratched easier beings it's a slider, a generic headset with a 2.5 mm end won't work beings it doesn't have an input for thatSummary: Good phone with a lot of upside and for the price, it is well worth it

The good: Compact, Light-weight, Durable, Fast-long lasting charge, Large LCD screen, Excellent reception, Bluetooth capable, Good voice recognition software, Great ear piece and ring volume, External buttons / controls, Speaker phone, Text & picture messagingThe bad: Lack of accessories, PC support / data transfer, Camera resolutionSummary: If you're not crazy about flip-phones, this little slider is a great choice. It's small form factor allows you to carry it almost any where and the vibrate function is a great plus in noisy environments. I am hard on cell phones and have dropped this little sucker several times on hard floors with nothing more than a nick. The large LCD screen is crisp and clear and the large dialing font is great for elderly eyes like mine. The reception has been great even in the boonies where my sister lives. She has a Nokia model that constantly drops calls, where as my 420 rocks on. I also like the voice recognition settings and command choices.The camera has an activate button on the side, which is great but the camera itself is a little cheesy. The highest resolution (640 x480) isn't the best and under certain lighting conditions, pics come out yellowish brown. If you're a geek and want to explore the internals and data transfer possibilities, such as a contacts list, this may not be the phone for you. I did read one review that said a USB cable for the T809 is compatible using bitpim drivers and he was able to transfer pics. But I have yet to find that cable. I actually called Samsung customer service about this issue. They stated that there is no software or pc connectivity options at this time or planned in the near future (sad). The speaker phone is just fine in low noise environments only, but there are bluetooth speaker kits available for this phone.Overall I am very pleased with this little slider. I feel the pros more than outweigh the cons and intend to enjoy this little gem for quite some time.

The good: beautiful screen. acceptable photos. great overall service despite not having an extendable antennaThe bad: speaker phone could be louder. some people have problems with the buttonsSummary: I purchased this phone a day after it came out and have no major complaints with it at all. I have fairly large hands and dont have trouble with the number keys but maybe its because i had the not well designed kyocera se44 slider for a couple years.A friend of mine purchased this phone after using mine quite a bit and he has been happy with it. It is a surprisingly durable little phone. Ive dropped mine twice. once on concrete once on a wood floor and it has a small nick on it but the phone didnt even shut off. The friend of mine left his phone outside, fully opened, in the rain, soaking in a puddle for all of six hours. He took the back and battery off and set it under a fan for a day. It works fine, didnt even bother the camera.
