A good phone and you feel like if it was a smartphone!

Excerpt: I like this phone cuz it is sort of handy before the Droids and iPhones barged in to the market. It is with the java platform and getting apps is a bane of life. However, it has basic social networking apps like facebook etc. Anything else, you have to download from the AT&T or the 3rd party sellers and they become expensive!
Summary: Overall its features are very good. The battery life is terrible. The icons are easy to use and organize. The tools are also very easy to use and work well. Phone usage and volume are great. The querty keyboard is responsive but I have large fingers so often will type the wrong letter and have to redo it. It is sluggish to go into the keyboard and that is annoying. The one thing that holds this phone back is the battery life as it is terrible.
Temperamental at times, not very tough, good for camera and texting.

Summary: Not the best phone to carry in your pocket. Touch screen loses it's memory regularly (push the menu icon, you get the address book, try to dial and push the "2" it gives you the "1"). Apt to initalize at any time, lose stored numbers on speed dial or address book. Basically, unreliable. The camera is above average, the texting feature is good. Seems to pick up signal well.
Excerpt: The Samsung Mythic - yeah you've seen the commercials. I saw them and said wow, I need that phone. It looks amazing - sleek and professional. It has many features; just about anything you would expect from a phone of this calliber. Lots of customization options, multiple screens to scroll through (kind of like an iphone). However, the touch screen is VERY hard to use. I would say that navigating the phone is it's biggest flaw.
Excerpt: This is not a very great phone. While it looks good, it definitely does not perform all that well. It's the little things that just keep adding up and adding up that don't make this phone worth it. I had it for over a year and had enough of it. The touch screen takes some getting used to as it is pressure sensitive. It isn't very responsive at all and many times the phone would freeze on me when doing regular activities or texting on it.
Excerpt: This is my fifth phone in, unfortunately, way to short of a time period. Therefore, I guess you could say I have quite a bit of experience with cell phones. I do not particularly like this phone all that much. It has a pretty good camera, and I like the color of it. I like the fact that it is very customizable, and the fact that it has a touch screen.
Excerpt: I bought this cell phone after my contract was up with ATT, the phone looked very sleek and just appeals to the eye. After unboxing it and using it for the 1st week, i began noticing how slow the phone is. The virtual keyboard lacked precision and you often get other letters than the one you want. The phones processor is very slow and you can see it when you go into the menu or view pictures. the phone will often Lag and this frustrates me.
A low-end alternative to a more pricey smart phone. Battery dies quickly!

Summary: Lots of features including a TV app. But the main screen is confusing to use and icons are huge - hiding your background pictures. The battery life is expected to reach 3 hours of talk time, but in all actuality I'm lucky to get 1.5hrs in right after removing the phone from the charger. Takes a short time to charge the battery so that is a definite indication of how little power the battery provides.
