It's a really good looking phone. The slider works OK. Like all Samsung phones, the display is excellent.The "flash" on the camera is just bright enough to get a closeup in a dark area when you would otherwise not get any picture at all.It has an IR port so you can load ringers without a cable.But there are some really annoying con's...You can't select ringer tones for the alarm clock. You can only choose from a small handful of awful alarm sounds. This feature was available on older Samsung models and has been REMOVED.Text message alerts are also limited to their own short list of preset sounds. This was lacking on previous models.No option for a default text recipient (e105 had this). You have to enter the number or search the phonebook each time.The sound quality is only barely acceptable. It has a plasticy sound like cheap headphones, though not quite as bad.The camera resolution is "OK" for a phone (640x480), but when framing the shot the phone's display does not show the full frame. The display only shows about the middle 1/2 of the picture so you can't frame anything just right, it's always a guess. It would be nice to make sure you are making good use of the pixels you have.There is no option to change your home page for the web browser. On other phones I have a news page set as the homepage, so I have one-touch access to news, not T-Mobile's ringer downloads.None of the shortcut keys (direction keypad in standby) can be customized.The ringer is quieter than previous models (comparing to e105, s105) and makes more crackles from loud ringers.The size of the phone is not too special. It's shorter than most, but also thicker and heavier.This is a cool basic phone, plus a basic camera and an IR port. If you can get it for free/cheap and aren't picky about, well, anything at all, it's a good deal. But don't pay $100-200 for something that is mostly an entry-level phone.
