Samsung Magnet (SGH-a257) Review

11 June 2009
  • Conclusion: Samsung’s Magnet is the latest in a new generation of cheap, dumbed-down QWERTY phones – equipped with only the bare necessities for a low price – likely targeted at kids. But we suspect kids are more technically sophisticated and smarter than both Samsung and AT&T think. Case in point: For the same price, your child can get a far more fully-featured (albeit refurbished) Propel .
  • Pros: Inexpensive; great battery life; clear sound; QWERTY keyboard; full array of text, IM and email services
  • Cons: Slow EDGE Web access; no threaded messaging; VGA camera; no microSD card slot; no music player
