>> Hi, I'm Kent German, Senior Editor here at CNET.com. Today we'll take our first look at the Samsung Byline. This is a phone for Metro PCS. The Byline is one of Metro PCS's most low-end phones. It doesn't have a camera, it's really made for calling, it does have Bluetooth, which is a nice touch, it is only for making calls, but overall this is a phone for real communication messaging and that's pretty much it. Design is vey simple. It does have the red color, which is a little unique, but overall really not going along with this flip phone. The external display is about the size of a postal stamp, shows all the information you need. Inside we have the internal display. It is 65,000 colors as well, so not the highest resolution screen we've seen. The menu system is pretty easy to understand there, you can get it on the list of the icon styles. The navigation controls pretty well designed. Under the navigation array is the keypad. I didn't have any problems here either dialing or texting quickly, overall, pretty simple controls. Inside you'll find basic organizer features. It does have voice commands and it does have a voice recorder, so that's another added feature that's kind of nice, gets messaging, does web-base e-mail, as well, but you have to download an application to the phone, and does instant messaging. I'm Kent German and this is the Samsung Byline. ^M00:01:15 [ Music ]
Though its call quality could be improved, the Samsung SGH-A227 is a respectable phone for occasional callers.
Though light on features, the Samsung Stunt SCH-r100 is easy to operate. The addition of Bluetooth, speakerphone, and voice commands make it a serviceable entry-level phone, though call quality could be clearer.
We found nothing inherently wrong with the Samsung SyncMaster 204T, a 20-inch LCD with an attractive design, decent image quality, and useful software, but other monitors offer more features for the price.
The Samsung Instinct stands out as one of Sprint's finest devices to date. It's just too bad its call quality could use some improvement.
Though its performance could be improved a tad, the Samsung SGH-T519 is an attractive thin phone with a nice assortment of features.
The Samsung SCH-R510 Wafer is a cell phone that offers thin-phone fans an admirable feature set and good call quality.
The Samsung SGH-A437 is a cell phone that offers some decent features, but its controls and its call quality are disappointing.
It can't pass muster as a camera phone, but as a quality music handset, the Samsung SGH-i450 more than holds its own.
Its performance could be improved a tad, but the Samsung SGH-T519 is an attractive thin phone with a nice assortment of features, says CNET's Kent German. Take a look as he rings it up.
With picture quality that's nearly the equal of the tough competition, as well as best-in-class design and features, the Samsung PND8000 makes a strong case the best overall plasma TV of 2011.
