Conclusion: Can a pretty face sell a phone? If the LG Shine is any indication, the answer is yes. The Samsung Sway speaks thin and stylish to fashion-conscious cell phone users. And behind that pretty face it has a strong GPS and VZ Navigator performance, good audio Bluetooth stereo and a good camera-- enough substance to fill the role of a mid-tier feature phone. The EV-DO omission prevents the phone from being a multimedia powerhouse.
Pros: Very stylish design and slim body. Bright and colorful screen and good audio quality. Phone has a healthy amount of internal memory and the microSD card slot is easy to access. GPS performance is very good. Gaming is enjoyable.
Cons: Doesn’t have strong reception even in 1X. No wired headset or USB cable included. Side-loading music might turn away V CAST Music fans who are used to buying music over the air.
