    Samsung Instinct HD SPH-M850 Cell Phone Review

    Sprint Nextel stole the CTIA show last year when it introduced the Samsung Instinct. There was a lot to like about the touch-screen phone, so we were hopeful that Samsung would build on its successes with subsequent models. To our initial delight, the Samsung Instinct S30 made the rounds at CTIA this...

    Samsung Moment Cell Phone Review

    In case you haven’t noticed, the Google Android dam has broken. For almost a year, HTC was the only manufacturer to offer handsets with the operating system, but in the past month, Motorola and Samsung almost fell over each other to offer Android smartphones of their own. Moto gave us the satisfying...

    Samsung Intrepid Cell Phone Review

    The Samsung Intrepid made its debut at CTIA Fall 2009 as Sprint’s first Windows Mobile 6.5 smartphone. Admittedly, we weren’t particularly impressed by the handset’s drab and slightly plasticky design when we saw it at the show but now that we’ve had some time to get to know the device, we can...

    Samsung Seek Cell Phone Review

    Even though we typically associate the touch-screen interface with smartphones and high-end feature phones, there are midrange devices that offer it as well. Take the Samsung Seek from Sprint, for example. Billed as a simple messaging phone with a social networking bent, the Seek comes with a decent touch-screen display in addition...

    Samsung PX2370 Monitor Review

    Thanks to its angular look, the Samsung PX2370 isn’t quite as sexy as the XL2370 is. Samsung didn’t think out the PX2370’s onscreen display placement well; its OSD is inferior to the XL2370’s display and makes navigating the menu a less fluid experience. Also, Samsung gave the PX2370 a lower maximum brightness...

    Samsung Vibrant Review

    While T-Mobile pioneered the Android “revolution” in the United States, the nation’s fourth largest wireless carrier hasn’t had a high-end, slate-like Android device until now.  Enter the Samsung Vibrant, a member of the Galaxy S series, and the one that most closely resembles the European Galaxy S design.  With a 1 GHz...

    Samsung Intercept Review

    Introduction Samsung is at it again, and they’re expanding their Android horizons by focusing on more than one demographic.  Hot off the Galaxy S announcements a few weeks ago, the mid-range Intercept has landed at Sprint.  Complete with Android 2.1, a full QWERTY keyboard, and 3G connectivity, the replacement to the Samsung...

    Samsung Restore Review

    Introduction I’ve always been fond of mid-range QWERTY devices, because let’s be honest – not everyone needs a smartphone.  There’s a demographic out there that sends text messages and makes phone calls, but doesn’t browse the web.  At times, I feel like a great deal of coverage centers around the high-end devices,...

    Samsung NX10 Digital Camera Review

    The idea of a mirrorless interchangeable lens camera had been circulating for many years before Panasonic and Olympus announced the Micro Four Thirds camera system in August 2008, so it’s not surprising that they didn’t have the market to themselves for very long. Back when there was still only one Micro Four...

    Verizon Wireless Samsung Rougue Review

    Samsung has had mixed results with touch-screen phones with full keyboards. Verizon’s Samsung Glyde had its share of faults, but we liked the Samsung Impression for AT&T quite a bit. Fortunately, the new Samsung Rogue for Verizon Wireless is no slouch. Not only is it a touch-screen and keyboard combo handset, but...

    Samsung Mythic SGH-A897 Cell Phone Review

    Overview What’s Good: TouchWiz 2.0 offers improvements over previous versions.   What’s Bad: Battery life not great, and coverage is spotty at times. Introduction Despite the smartphone push by carriers, featurephones remain an important element in the wireless industry. To that end, the Samsung Mythic is a great addition to the field,...
