Samsung Mythic

13 January 2010
  • Excerpt: When the Samsung Eternity came out for AT&T in November 2008 it sold like hotcakes. Samsung's TouchWiz UI was shiny and fun, the phone was responsive and its data plan cost half the iPhone's. After all, the cost of a phone isn't just the up-front purchase price but the ongoing plan price over a 2 year contract.
  • Pros: Fun touchscreen phone with lower data plan cost than the iPhone.
  • Cons: On the slow side.
