  • Summary: Feature phone geeks should look at the Samsung Brightside and consider it. If you use Verizon and don’t mind the phone’s simplicity and not amazing specs and performance.

Samsung Brightside (Verizon Wireless)

25 December 2012
  • Summary: The Samsung Brightside isn't my all-time favorite feature phone, thanks to its exposed touch-screen menu, low-res screen, and laggy processor, but it is one option for Verizon customers.
  • Pros: The Samsung Brightside has a comfortable slide-out QWERTY keyboard, decent call quality, and a design that takes advantage of voice commands.
  • Cons: If you can't stomach an iffy screen resolution, a mediocre camera, and a laggy processor, then don't buy the Samsung Brightside.

  • Pros: Nice keyboard. Responsive touch screen.
  • Cons: Terrible viewing angles. Poor camera. Lousy multimedia playback.

  • Conclusion: Seriously, you’d be a fool to pick this one up – especially when it’s flaunting a ridiculous price tag of $100 with a 2-year contract. In all honesty, if there’s a handset that goes in the opposite direction of having the most bang for the buck, this has to be it, literally! Not only is an expensive offering, it also does absolutely nothing to justify its hefty price tag.
  • Pros: Usable QWERTY keyboard, Decent calling quality
  • Cons: Extremely expensive, Poor quality display, Cheap feeling, Horrendous video recording quality
