Summary: We bought two of these phones awhile back from T-mobile when they were near top of the line, so paid way more. (Still saved overall, even with having to pay Verizon penalty--that's how outrageous Verizon's plans are!) Bought another Samsung Highlight through Amazon recently when we added a line. Everything perfect. Then my wife's phone got stolen and I ordered her a new one. This last one came with a battery that would only hold a third of a charge.
Summary: I've had this phone for about 18 months now and really love it. This was my first touch screen phone, so that took some adjusting to, but overall, the phone has been great. It's not a super-expensive phone, but it has lots of good features. I've never used it with a data plan and my experience has still been great. My provider allows free access to only a few sites, so I can only imagine how much better the phone would be if you paid for full web access.
Excerpt: This phone counts as a feature phone. It has a 3 in. touchscreen. You get the Samsung TouchWiz. The screen is OK. It sometimes lags. Texting on this phone, is average. Heavy texters might not like the keyboard, It lags sometimes. The buttons are small too. I couldnt text fast. You can also text with the vurtual dialpad and handwriting recognition. The web browser is pretty standard. You dont get a fancy web browser, but it gets the job done. The camera is pretty nice.
Pros: Nice Camera, TouchWiz, OK UI, Above average photo quality
Cons: Web browser, Menu lags sometimes, Vurtual QWERTY keybard
Excerpt: The highlight is overall a nice phone. If your the type that dosent want something old and not high tech at all and if your not the type to have a really high tech phone then this is your type of phone. The highlight has some nice apps but not many. Samsung should relly try and create a app store for all phones. The real web browsing is really good and handy. The camera is ok but not as good as the behold's. It's screen is pretty cool too.
Pros: Nice design, touch screen, fast, some useful features
Cons: 3.0 megapix unlike the behold's 5.0 megapix's, apps
Summary: really do like this cell phone,
i just purchased it with an upgrade i had avaible to me.
& it's everything i hoped for, the touchscreeen is good,
texting is easy enough, the whole cell phone in general is easy to use too.
if you have expectations of getting a high tech touchscreen phone,
then don't get this, but if you're looking for a cute modern phone,
with good qualty and capability, like i was, then i would recommend this to you(:
