Excerpt: The Samsung Blast for T-Mobile USA is a very nice messaging device that comes equipped with a 20 key keyboard and a very appealing price tag. Mike DeWane reports back to us with this hands-on review.
Excerpt: The Samsung Blast is a multi-media cell phone built for T-Mobile. As such, it is not a 3G cell phone. The attractive features I found in the Blast outweighed the faster data transfers of other carriers who carry 3G cell phones. T-Mobile provides good cell phone reception, accessibility functions and customer service based on my experience. I selected the Blast as a replacement for another model when my contract with T-Mobile came up for renewal.
Conclusion: Well, the Blast was a good phone overall. There are some things to consider before going out and buying it however. First, if you live on your phone, you better have a charger on you at all times and make use of every plug that comes your way. Otherwise you just might find yourself stranded with an 80g paperweight. For all the texters or IMers out there, the phone provides a great base and functionality but it takes time getting used to the keypad.
Pros: Small dimension, SureType keyboard on such a small phone, Messaging capabilities
Cons: Keyboard takes some time getting used tovvv, Battery life, Some noise when talking, Can’t run media player in the background
