Samsung :) SGH-T359 (T-Mobile)

 

The Samsung Smiley SGH-T359 isn't bad for a budget messaging device, but T-Mobile has several better handsets that each cost just a few bucks more.

Sharp, bright screen. Good build quality. Includes 3G and GPS, plus free Google Maps directions (without voice).

Poor camera. No voice dialing. Non-standard headphone jack.

Multimedia, Camera, and Conclusions There's 82MB of free internal memory, and my 16GB SanDisk microSD card worked fine in the side-mounted card slot. The microUSB headphone jack means finding good-sounding wired earbuds is almost impossible. Music...

Samsung :) Smiley - black (T-Mobile) review

 

You can always count on Samsung do it two things: bury us in new cell phone reviews, and occasionally announce handsets with rather silly names. On that last point, the Innov8 , the TwoStep , and the Sunburst are prime examples, and don't get CNET's...

The Samsung Smiley has a functional midrange feature set and respectable call quality.

The Samsung Smiley's keyboard is a tad cramped and offers few shortcut keys. Some messaging options require use of the Web browser.

If you don't mind the small keyboard and can get past the cringe-inducing name, T-Mobile's Samsung Smiley is an easy-to-use messaging phone.

Samsung Smiley :) Review

 

Let us present to you the phone with the worst name ever, the Samsung :). The :)- which we will refer to as Smiley from here on out- thankfully isn't as bad as its name. This low-end portrait slider features a decidedly low-end set of specs, but what...

Samsung :) Smiley Review

 

The Samsung Smiley is a basic model messaging phone with all common features and a fair performance with a price as low as $19.99. Samsung's new Smiley is definitely going to cheer you up as you progress with this review to learn about the details of it.

Named after an emoticon, the Samsung Smiley can really cheer you up with a price tag of just $19.99 with a two year contract. With such a low price, it is no doubt good value for a GPS-enabled 3G messaging phone with a QWERTY keyboard and battery life...
