Samsung Instinct (SPH-M800)

CNET
15 September 2010
  • Summary: The Samsung Instinct stands out as one of Sprint's finest devices to date. It's just too bad its call quality could use some improvement.
  • Pros: The Samsung Instinct offers a slick, intuitive design and a heavy load of powerful, innovative, and easy-to-use features. It particularly shines as a messaging and GPS device.
  • Cons: The Samsung Instinct lacks Wi-Fi and instant messaging, and its call and video quality were erratic. Also, its Internet browser could be refined, its internal memory is small, and its camera lacks editing features.

Samsung Instinct (Sprint)

PC Magazine
17 March 2009
  • Conclusion: Sprint sent us this Samsung phone to review mere hours before Apple will likely announce iPhone 2.0 to make a point: If you want an iPhone, but you don't want to switch from Sprint, the Instinct is almost as good.
  • Pros: Good voice quality and music and video playback features. Fun to use.
  • Cons: Buggy reception indicator. Disappointing Web browser. No instant messaging client.

Samsung Instinct HD (Sprint)

PC Magazine
3 March 2009
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Instinct HD has a novel feature set and can record and display HD video (at least on an external screen), but several issues combine to make it a bit frustrating to use.
  • Pros: Sharp camera and HD camcorder. HD playback over HDMI really works. Capacitive touch screen. Plenty of media features. Wi-Fi.
  • Cons: Very poor battery life. Takes a long time to boot up. Proprietary HD cable not in the box. Buggy media players. Expensive.

Samsung Instinct Review

Digitaltrends
14 July 2008
  • Conclusion: This is not a true smartphone like the iPhone or AT&T Tilt , and it’s really not ideal for business users because of the lack of instantaneous email sync (a la Blackberry) and somewhat iffy MS Exchange support. We’re also not crazy about the live TV and much prefer the service on LG’s Voyager.
  • Pros: Reliable interface; 3.5mm headphone jack; visual voicemail; lots of extras
  • Cons: Streaming video looks poor; no WiFi; screen is hard to see outdoors; limited MS Exchange support

Samsung Instinct

  • Conclusion: Sprint did one thing right and one thing wrong. Wrong: they went after the iPhone tooth and nail in marketing the Instinct, and that leads to disappointment because so far, nothing else is nearly like the iPhone. Right: they and Samsung came up with a very good phone in its own right. It's certainly no iPhone, but that's not a bad thing altogether.

Samsung Instinct Review

LAPTOP Magazine
6 June 2008
  • Summary: The Samsung Instinct is a very good touchscreen phone, and friends and family were impressed by its performance and design. The iPhone 3G boasts a superior Web browsing experience, Wi-Fi, and a more durable glass multi-touch display, and both it and the first-generation model will soon be able to access an entire store of applications.

  • Summary: Not yet available in the UK, the Samsung Instinct will appear familiar to anyone who's clapped eyes on the Apple iPhone. So everyone, then.
