Samsung Magnet Review
The Samsung Magnet (SGH-A257) is a cheaper type of candy bar smart phone. The emphasis behind this phone is to make sure that it is friendly to peopleís wallets, rather than being a full featured phone that can do practically everything you can think of. It looks like a standard blackberry phone. It comes in an orange color, with a QWERT keyboard for you to type with and the features youíd expect like a camera. It has a decent sized LCD screen, so that you can see what youíre doing. Iím going to go into detail on the Samsung Magnet and give you a good review of what this smart phone is about.
Some of the main features of the Magnet:
The Samsung Magnet has a pretty decent sized LDC screen at 240◊320 pixels. Itís a decent size to be able to navigate around the web, instant message and watch videos. These are all important features on a phone that you would expect a teenager or young adult to be using. The 2 megapixel camera is pretty good for a cell phone, which will provide high quality pictures and allow you to record video with it as well.
This smart phone acts as a complete MP3 player. It plays many different audio files, so there wonít be any compatibility problems youíll find with other phones like the iPhone. It functions very easily for you to upload your music onto it. You can do it via USB connection or through a Bluetooth 2.0 connection. The phone is just as versatile as an iPod, which most people will be able to appreciate that type of quality.
The Magnet contains a lot of the extra features that you would expect. It has a WAP browser with full XHTML and Java support. A lot of people take such a feature for granted because you donít realize how important it is until you donít have it. A lot of cell phones donít stay up to date with web page standards. That means some pages you visit will look awful or broken. This phone keeps everything up to date, so all pages will look the same as they would on a computer. There is also the availability to instant message on the phone, which is very popular with teenagers.
It contains all the standard features that youíd expect to find on a phone like email, speaker phone, mp3 ring tones, call vibration, etc. It contains most of the little features that all phones have because theyíre very easy to add. It contains the core of what youíll need for a cell phone. It isnít designed for people that are running a business off their phone. A more sophisticated and expensive one is needed for something like that.
The whole point of the Samsung Magnet is to be cheap. A lot of us want to have a nice phone that we can text, browse, take pictures and listen to music without having to buy an expensive phone. Weíre just looking for the features that get us through our days. Most of the smart phones youíll find today are really trying to turn the phone into a computer, when all you really want is a phone that is an mp3 player or just a browser.
This is my review of the Samsung Magnet. As you can see it is a pretty decent smart phone. Youíre going to get most of the features youíd find in any other type of phone, except at a price that is much cheaper. Currently the magnet is being released through AT&T, but the price of it hasnít been released. It will probably be much cheaper than the Samsungís Impression phone.
