Samsung Mobile Phone

Samsung mobile phones are available for all sorts of carriers, including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless. It appears that the top models for the brand are T-Mobiles, although there are options for everyone. There are many things to consider, including how high of quality you want your camera to be; 5 or 8 megapixels? Also, will you be using this phone for a lot of Internet work? If so, better find one that’s part of a 3G network with good Web browser capabilities.

If you’re ready to switch to a Samsung, consider these solid models:

  • The Samsung Memoir T929 for T-Mobile is a sleek, compact phone that almost looks like a camera, and you can even upload your photos to the online photo sharing sites in one fell swoop. Photo quality is high with the 8-megapixel Samsung Memoir T929, and there are many features including a high power flash and a 4X digital zoom. The phone handles very well. There is no WiFi on the Samsung Memoir T929, and the browser leaves more to be desired. This price is also steep, but a good buy if you need a high quality cell phone camera.
  • The Samsung Behold SGH-T919, also for T-Mobile – is beautifully designed with a rapid response touch screen. There are a wide variety of features and high quality in the Samsung Behold SGH-T919, and combined with T-Mobile’s fast 3G network, this phone is considered a treat. Just like the above model, the Samsung Behold SGH-T919 lacks Wi-Fi and the memory card slot is in an awkward place. The speakerphone and web browser features are sub-par. Consider the Behold Samsung’s answer to Apple’s iPhone, Verizon Wireless’ LG Dare and Sprint Nextel’s Samsung Instinct. There is a music plater, and the camera has five megapixels, and if you sign up for an extended contract, a rebate will help with the price.
  • The Samsung Gravity SGH-T459, another T-Mobile phone, has a very good QWERTY keyboard, a basic music player, a 1.3-megapixel camera and a memory card slot. The call quality and features are considered sub-par but it’s great for the turbo texters on a budget. Consider it in league with the Rant and the Propel, other phones made just for the text messagers. It’s design is odd in that it is thick and long (think: candy bar), and the keyboard slides out. The Samsung Gravity SGH-T459 is available in aqua and white or lime and gray.
  • The T-Mobile’s Samsung Katalyst has excellent phone quality, a 1.3-megapixel camera, WiFi capability and a music player. The keyboard and memory card slot are awkward and there isn’t much built-in memory. There is also Bluetooth and quad-band support for this mid-range phone, and it’s one of the first to support T-Mobile’s HotSpot WiFi home service.
  • The Samsung SCH-U340 for Verizon Wireless is an easy phone to use with decent quality, but don’t count on it for a strong speaker phone or a Web browser. The camera is of low quality, and there may not be enough features for some users. For example, the Samsung SCH-U340 lacks a music player, a wireless Web browser and Bluetooth. It’s a good budget choice for someone just looking for an affordable handset that takes pictures.
  • The Samsung Blast SGH-T729 for T-Mobile is a good looking and user friendly phone with good call quality and many messaging options. The volume could be higher and the music player is subpar. However, it is a good messaging phone with good call quality. The Samsung Blast SGH-T729 has a thin slider design, is Bluetooth friendly and has a QWERTY keyboard. However, it isn’t part of T-Mobile’s 3G network.
  • The Samsung Omnia is a sytlish 5-MP advanced camera and camcorder with autofocus.
