Conclusion: True – the Samsung Instinct HD’s high-definition camcorder is impressive. But who buys a cellphone for its video capabilities? When faced with a choice of the well-endowed, easy-to-sync, open OS $150 Palm Pré and the $180 HTC Hero , let’s be frank.
Pros: 5 MP camera; HD camcorder; Sprint TV and radio; Visual Voicemail; haptic touchscreen feedback
Cons: Clunky Web browser; difficult to sync; poor music player; buried microSD jack; poor battery life
Excerpt: It used to be relatively easy to review a new phone. You would mention the super-duper 1.3MP camera, the external screen, and that it could make phone calls. Ahh, but the game has changed, has it not?
