Excerpt: I love this phone. I think of it as my iphone with out the cost,lol. This phone is lightweight and easy to use. I like how it locks by itself so I dont accidently call someone I didnt mean to. This phone has great widgets. It comes programmed with facebook, lonely planet,, pictas, voice recorder, flickr, twitter, draw pad, and you can add others like myspace and etc...
Excerpt: I am always pressing numbers or buttons on my phone and sometimes i forget to lock it and there i go calling someone and i don't even know. well with this phone when you are done using it it automatically locks itself so you won;t be calling anyone or pushing numbers and acidentlly call 911. Another great feature on this phone is that it has gps and it is right on where you want to go and how to get there.
Excerpt: I like the touch screen, but at times it can be a pain. it is very sensitive, and sometimes hard to hit just the right area without the stylus. I hate the quick text feature, because it is right next to a frequently used button, and i tend to get annoyed when the quick text option adds in unwanted text. I just recently was able to get it to play youtube videos, because it would previously say "unsupported video file", so that is a plus.
Excerpt: I admit it freely here; when my friend began talking about upgrading our cell phones to a "smartphone" that would "do it all", I was leery, both of how much the unit was going to cost, and how little it would most probably end up doing for me for that increased cost. But Samsung, always a reliable and innovative provider of wonderful electronics, has once again proven to me that they can always meet and exceed expectations of even the worst skeptics.
Excerpt: The finesse is a great touchscreen phone! In the past the touchscreens I have had were not well calibrated and the screen broke easily. I have a two year old and he loves listening to music on my phone so having been dropped several times its still in great shape! This phone is durable and I am amazed at how easy it was to use. The plan is also a great value.
Excerpt: This was the first touch I owned and I do really like it. At first the screen was a little to sensitive but that was quickly fix by using the calibration. The phone is easy to naviagate and find everything you need. It is fairly fast at pulling things up. Mine has been dropped several times and still works.
Excerpt: After reading a lot of mixed and negative reviews, I decided to try this phone anyway. It was the only one at the store that I couldn't stop playing with and I figured I had 30 days to return it if I didn't like it. All I have to say is that I LOVE this phone! The touchscreen is amazing and of course it took a little getting used to, but now that I am, I cannot use my husbands regular phone. The response time is awesome and I love the internet and email features.
Excerpt: This is a very good phone, packed with features that you would expect from a larger phone/carrier and the monthly plan price is so much lower than comparable plans, you couldn't go wrong. Last year I had to give up my crackberry (Blackberry) and was lost without it. I didn't want to enter into a new contract with a big carrier so I decided to go with Pay-As-You-Go, but the phone and features were lacking.
I keep going back to this model over and over again.

Summary: If you are somewhat blind like I am, you will love this phone. It is probably the main reason I stick with this model. I have been buying this model Samsung since they first came out several years ago. I love the touchscreen. It keeps things simple. I tried several of the Android phones and just keep going back to this Samsung. The battery life could be a little longer but it charges in a very short period of time.
Lots of functionality but at times frustrating to work with.

Summary: The Samsung SCH R810 Finesse phone is a very powerful phone with lots of features. It has a camera, camcorder, Navigation system, Bluetooth and more. It also has a nice wide screen that allows you to enjoy your pictures and the QWERTY Keybord. At times it works great but there are times when after it's been sitting a while that it seems to freeze up and I have to take out the battery and put it back to get things going again.
