Excerpt: I was very excited to get this phone as I love taking pictures, but it is not always convenient to take a large camera around with me. I like to take action/candid photos and I though this would be a good camera being that it is 8 megapixels. The fact is that the phone does take spectacular pictures, but it is very hard to get the shot that you want because the camera is extremely slow.

Pros: -Camera is great -Love the look -
Cons: -screen freezes A LOT -been having a hug problem w/ txts not sending and me having to take the battery out to reset the phone to send my txts -The phone refuses to charge anymore, no charger has been working with it -keyboard on screen is super small
Pros: I love the fact that i can take great pictures with this phone.
Cons: The phone shuts off about once a day on its own. Also the phone was very slow loading applications, which there are few of anyways. Could not change backround picture when the phone was locked, so i frequently had flowers as my backround.
Summary: I bought this phone a couple of weeks ago, but returned it last week. This phone is being marketed as a smartphone, which is actually devoid of features like wi-fi, built-in modem to be used with laptops, and lack of downloadable applications (both from Samsung, and T-mobile).
Its not worthy of a smartphone based only on 8MP camera.
Summary: Was anticipating this phone for some time with it's 8 megapixel camera, stylish exterior,etc. With some time under my belt I can say that it does have some serious flaws which are not compatible with my needs. I use this phone on the TMobile network along with my hacked Iphone3G which in itself is a truly incredible piece of hardware.
Excellent. Phone exhibits great sound quality on both sides of the call. Music sounds good and on par with my Iphone.
