Aaron's Samsung Restore review

12 September 2010
  • Summary: I categorize cell phones into three primary classes: low-end phones, featurephones, and smartphones.  On the featurephone front, the Samsung Restore is one of my favorite devices.  With a trendy and professional design, the phone offers a great QWERTY keyboard for messaging, along with data-centric applications like Sprint TV and Sprint Music.
  • Pros: Good QWERTY keyboard, strong signal strength, and decent battery life make the Restore a nice option for the texting crowd.  It's also eco-friendly.
  • Cons: The 'speaker' and 'back' keys are where you would expect the 'send' and 'end' keys to be, leading to a bit of a learning curve.

Samsung Restore

26 July 2010
  • Conclusion: With 84 percent recyclable material, the Samsung Restore is made with environment concerns in mind. The phone’s casing contains 27% post-consumer recycled plastics and the packaging is 100% recyclable with soy ink print. Beyond the eco-friendly features, the Samsung Restore offers a very nice video experience, good GPS performance and a full serving of messaging and social networking. It’s a great phone for the price with a contract.
  • Pros: Very nice keyboard, good video performance., Pro: Very nice keyboard, good video performance.
  • Cons: Still waiting for the Sprint Music Plus store to open., Con: Still waiting for the Sprint Music Plus store to open.

Samsung Restore M570 Review

Phone Arena
18 June 2010
  • Conclusion: on the Samsung Restore was unfortunately subpar, with callers saying we sounded as if we were deep in a cave.  They also complained that our voice sounded gravelly.  On our end they sounded much better, but slightly muffled.  We were actually sent a unit by Sprint and one by Samsung and both exhibited the same call issues, so while this is not typical of Samsung it does seem to be a valid concern on the Restore.
  • Pros: Great build quality, Crisp display, Camera performed well
  • Cons: Call quality left a bit to be desired, Keyboard could have some more feel to it
