Summary: An improved keyboard plus texting, e-mail, and instant messaging features make the Samsung Freeform II a worthy update to the original messaging phone.
Pros: The Samsung Freeform II comes with e-mail and multimedia messaging support and a stylish, updated keyboard. It also has a 3.5-millimeter headset jack, 16GB external memory, and good call quality.
Cons: The Samsung Freeform II's screen and keyboard feel cramped, and the keyboard buttons are stiff. The 1.3-megapixel camera could be better and the memory card slot is behind the back cover.
