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.
Summary: Not the best phone out there. browser is terrible and you won't even use it because it is so slow and unresponsive. the touch screen is slow to respond to the touch and sometimes you will have to press things a few times. very frustrating. The GPS is excellent though. Mp3 will play very good to. the speaker is very loud... a good thing. overall, not very impressed but hopefully, it will get better.
Summary: I really like the features this phone has. I can do everything I could on my previous phones and more. There are few sites that don't work in the browser. It has a powerful camera and a camcorder and is able to send video messages. There are multiple ways to input text. I don't believe there are any features I'm missing from this phone. However, there are several things that don't work all that well.
Summary: I bought the Finesse because I wanted to go with Metro PCS due to relatively cheap monthly payments and no contract. I am slightly disappointed with the Finesse, when compared to an iPhone or Blackberry for instance. But the iPhone also costs around $400-500 new (without a contract) and I payed only $200 for my Finesse, with a $50 mail in rebate. The phone handles all major things easily, but you won't get into any really advanced stuff here.
