Samsung SPH-M520

 

The Samsung SPH-M520 is a dependable all-around midrange feature phone for Sprint subscribers.

Attractive. Good voice quality. Capable e-mail software. Navigation and IM clients.

Reception isn't impressive. Weak camera and gaming performance.

Samsung SPH-M520 - gray (Sprint) review: Samsung SPH-M520 - gray (Sprint)

 

The Samsung SPH-M520 has a decent set of features, a bright display, easy-to-use control interface and satisfying performance.

The Samsung SPH-M20 had sluggish camera menus, and it picked up some background noise during calls. Also it uses a proprietary headset jack.

It doesn't offer anything new, but the Samsung SPH-M520 is one of the better Sprint Power Vision phones we've seen.

If you're looking for a budget-priced slider phone with a camera and GPS, look no further than the M520 by Samsung on Sprint.

Easy to use., Good overall performance., Cheaply priced., Attractive feature set
