Summary: The Samsung Smile is a great phone. Love the interaction, clear calling, qwerty pad, slide function, display, camera, etc. However, I have owned 3 of these bad boys and ALL 3 (the last one decided to malfunction this past week) start to malfunction and/or die within a years time. Must be a chip implanted on the circuit board that has a 'self-destruct' mode built in. When they DID work - they are the best! Great phones. Reasonably prices and look nice.
Summary: Purchased this for my daughter, to replace a touch screen that fizzled out due to humidity. This one has worked well -she's had it for about a year now -without internet access. She can't take pictures any more because the slide some how interferes and has scratched the lens- error in design I suppose.
Summary: Very small phone with small keyboard buttons, hard to text. Fell in the toilet and still worked even though it got completely soaked. Simple beginner phone, not many features compared to other phones.
Average product. Didn't really meet my expectations, but works well enough.

Summary: I enjoy the Samsung :), considering that it has fairly good battery life and a QWERTY keyboard. The only real problems I have with it, personally, are that the camera does not work at all (the screen remains black and I have no way to fix it) and that when trying to change the wallpaper it is way too large to fit the screen and is extremely blurry. Overall, I suppose it's a good deal for a cell phone.
Summary: I had to get the phone because my other Samsung phone which I love stopped working properly after about three years of use. This is the first phone I paid extra to text due to my extra talk time minutes I use from time to time. I have small hands and the keyboard is a little to small on this phone. The phone is worth the money I paid for but I wish Samsung would come up with a different style instead of the big and bulky look.
