Samsung Solstice SGH-a887 (AT&T)

PC Magazine
2 September 2009
  • Conclusion: There's nothing spectacular about the Samsung Solstice, but it's a nice choice for anyone who wants a lightweight touch screen phone that doesn't bust the budget.
  • Pros: Svelte, lightweight design. Good balance of features for the price.
  • Cons: Proprietary headphone jack. Memory card slot located underneath the battery.

Samsung Solstice Review

Digitaltrends
17 August 2009
  • Conclusion: If you buy a Solstice seeking only a higher-end calling and messaging device you won’t be disappointed, albeit not particularly thrilled either. But it almost goes without saying that those looking for a fully tweakable smartphone in the lower end of today’s price range would be much better off with one of Verizon’s recently discounted rivals. As such, it’s a tough recommendation.
  • Pros: Speedy downloads; overall feel of handset; best virtual QWERTY keyboard we've tested
  • Cons: Incompatibility with most third-party apps; no native Gmail support; 2.0 MP camera; AT&T Social Net integration; lack of pack-in accessories

Samsung Solstice

MobileTechReview.com
6 August 2009
  • Conclusion: The Samsung Solstice is a good-looking and fun phone. It's got plenty of features including a very good touch screen (not as good as the iPhone's but that's a tall order), good call management features including voice and speed dial, 3G with CV streaming video and a pleasant music player. It's the little cutbacks from the now less expensive Eternity that make us hesitant to recommend it, at least as long as the Eternity is still available.
  • Pros: Fun and easy to use, good web browser.
  • Cons: Doesn't compete well against the Samsung Eternity.
