Samsung Solstice II (AT&T)

PC Magazine
24 April 2011
  • Conclusion: The Solstice II is a decent enough feature phone, but there's little point in buying it over a $49 iPhone 3GS or a similarly-priced Android phone.
  • Pros: Colorful touch screen. Powerful Web browser. Plenty of multimedia features. Lightweight.
  • Cons: Loads of bloatware. Terrible music player. Mandatory $20-per-month data plan kills value.

Samsung Solstice II Review

Phone Arena
26 November 2010
  • Conclusion: So what do we have with the Samsung Solstice II that separates it from its predecessor? Well, there isn't much in terms of specs as it qualifies itself as yet another decent, but not quite spectacular, basic touchscreen offering from Samsung's camp. Sure there are prettier looking Samsung phones on AT&T's lineup right now, like the Sunburst or Mythic , but its inexpensive price should more than be forgiving to basic users.
  • Pros: Responsive capacitive touchscreen, Good calling quality
  • Cons: Same looking design, Below average looking photos

Samsung Solstice 2 Review by Sydney

23 November 2010
  • Summary: The Solstice 2 may be just a basic featurephone, but it performed well enough to impress me and I would definitely consider it to be the best new option on AT&T for those who only need is a basic phone with some style. The camera may not be much to speak of and it may not be a "messaging phone" per se, but it's an all-around solid performer and brings an updated design that looks great.
