Conclusion: Even though the Samsung U550 isn’t a major upgrade from the U540, we believe that for an entry-level device, it is overall a better phone than the LG VX8350. Both the call quality and reception were excellent, and equal to that of phones costing much more. Not to mention that U550 has a better build quality and overall feels more durable than the VX8350. We also like the color scheme more than the Gleam, since its not as shiny, but it does give up a few extra features.
Pros: Excellent call quality and signal reception, Can use up to 8GB microSDHC memory cards, Customizable pastel theme, Bluetooth music support
Cons: Small external display, Mono speaker, WAP Browser has problems displaying large HTML sites
