Samsung Stride SCH-R330 (U.S. Cellular)

 

The Samsung Stride offers decent call quality on U.S. Cellular, but it's up against some powerful phones that cost just a few bucks more.

Good call quality. Excellent numeric keypad design. Loud speakerphone.

No music player. No memory card slot for transferring photos. Needlessly complex Web browsing. Poor camera.

Apps, Multimedia, and Conclusions Samsung designed what it calls Touchwiz Lite, a stripped-down version of the company's proprietary UI layer, for the Stride. The main menu features twelve small icons arranged in a grid pattern. You get the usual...

Samsung Stunt SCH-R100 (MetroPCS)

 

The Samsung Stunt SCH-R100 is one of the cheapest phones for MetroPCS, and it shows.

Tiny. Cheap.

Low screen resolution. Mediocre call quality. Poor Web browsing.

Samsung Contour SCH-R250 (MetroPCS)

 

The Samsung Contour for MetroPCS delivers clear voice calls, useful GPS navigation, and not much else, which makes it tough to recommend.

Clear voice quality. Good reception. Useful GPS navigation.

Low screen resolution. Terrible VGA camera. Short battery life. No music player or memory card slot.

Apps, Multimedia, and Conclusions The Contour's BREW operating system and MetroPCS UI layer are standard fare for the carrier's low-end devices: simple, easy to use, but sluggish, and not at all attractive. There are some nicer preloaded wallpapers to...

Samsung Acclaim SCH-R880 (US Cellular)

 

The Samsung Acclaim delivers a usable QWERTY keyboard and a reasonably sized touch screen to US Cellular customers, but it's not particularly memorable.

Lightweight. Clear voice quality. Inexpensive US Cellular plans with free TeleNav GPS navigation. Good battery life.

Sluggish. Stiff, flat keyboard. Disappointing camera. Software feels a little unfinished.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions The Acclaim has 218MB of internal memory, and the side-mounted microSD card slot accepts 32GB cards. My 16GB SanDisk card worked fine, and Samsung gives you a 4GB card to get you started. The standard-size 3.5mm...

Samsung Stunt SCH-r100 (MetroPCS) review: Samsung Stunt SCH-r100 (MetroPCS)

 

Small, light, and sturdy, the Samsung Stunt SCH-r100 has a few creature comforts, like Bluetooth and voice commands.

The Stunt is so-so on call quality, and text input could be easier.

Though light on features, the Samsung Stunt SCH-r100 is easy to operate. The addition of Bluetooth, speakerphone, and voice commands makes it a serviceable entry-level phone, though call quality could be clearer.

Samsung SCH-220 Code - silver (MetroPCS) review

 

The Samsung Code (SCH-i220) is MetroPCS's first Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone, which seems like a step backward seeing as Windows Mobile 6.5 devices are available. However, that shouldn't detract the customers from getting the messaging-centric device....

The Samsung Code offers a sleek design with an easy-to-use QWERTY keyboard. The smartphone also has Bluetooth, GPS, and a 2-megapixel camera.

Runs on the older Windows Mobile 6.1. No Wi-Fi.

The Samsung Code is a basic but solid messaging smartphone for MetroPCS customers.

Samsung Finesse SCH-r810 (MetroPCS)

 

MetroPCS moves into the music-playing, movie-watching world with its touch-screen, media-friendly Samsung Finesse.

The only touch-screen phone—and the best camera and media phone for the money—on MetroPCS.

Abysmal e-mail program. Media players support few formats.

Samsung Messager SCH-R450 (Cricket)

 

Cricket's version of the Samsung Messager SCH-R450 is the closest that Cricket subscribers will get to a smartphone, for now.

Bright screen. Full QWERTY keyboard. Music headphone jack. Good reception and call quality.

IM and e-mail clients are "coming soon." A bit chunky.

Samsung Spex SCH-R210 (MetroPCS) review

 

While the major wireless carriers pack their lineups with the latest high-end cell phones, smaller operators such as MetroPCS take a more practical approach. Rather than offering complicated smartphones with pricey features, MetroPCS sticks with...

The Samsung Spex has a simple, easy-to-use design and a functional feature set.

The Samsung Spex's call quality sounded a bit hollow. Also, it takes too many clicks to activate the speakerphone.

The Samsung Spex is a decent cell phone for making calls, but there are better options from MetroPCS.

Samsung Glyde SCH-U940

 

Samsung's Glyde brings a touch screen and keyboard to Verizon.

Narrow body. Full Web browser. Good QWERTY keyboard.

Somewhat quirky touch screen. No way to sync with PCs. Limited e-mail and IM.
