>> Hi I'm Kent German, senior editor here at CNET.com. Today we're gonna take a first look at the Samsung SCHU340. It's a new phone for Verizon wireless service. [inaudible] a basic mid-level camera phone, very typical Samsung design. With the sort of rounded edges here, the camera lens up at the top, little bit angles on the top. So very much the standard Samsung design. Did like the blue color just a little bit, it is a little different, not your typical silver black. Here on the front you do have an external display. It is black and white, but it will act as a viewfinder for the camera. Resolution isn't that great cause it's a black and white display. Does the job nonetheless. Pretty compact shape, not too big, not too small. Open up the phone. Inside, display is decent. A little small, but the phone's kind of small as well, so that's understandable. Keypad buttons pretty decent size, they are kind of tactile as well, they're a little raised, just slightly above the surface of the phone, and the numbers on them are large. Overall though, mid-range feature set with a camera, speakerphone, but nothing in the way of eVideo compatibility or anything like that. I'm Kent German, this is the Samsung SCHU340. ^M00:01:00 [ music ]
The Samsung SCH-U540 cell phone has a generous range of features including 3G support, Bluetooth, and a speakerphone. Call quality was decent too.
The Samsung Gleam SCH-U700 cell phone has an attractive design, a gorgeous internal display, and a solid set of features. Call and music quality are good, too.
While the Samsung Glint doesn't sport a flashy design or the latest and greatest features, it offers Alltel customers a solid, basic cell phone with good call quality; best of all, it's free.
Though its controls could be refined, the Samsung Sway SCH-U650 offers a sleek slider design, a decent feature set, and good call quality.
Despite a couple of design complaints and a missing feature, the Samsung Convoy is an easy-to-use phone with great performance.
The Samsung SCH-U430 isn't terribly exciting but it's a decent phone for making calls.
Though its design is nothing special, the Samsung Muse SCH-U706 is a decent choice for an Alltel music phone.
The Samsung Intensity is a simple entry-level messaging phone with a few multimedia goodies that's very affordable and easy to use.
If you want a functional, user-friendly cell phone for making calls, the Samsung Knack SCH-U310 for Verizon Wireless is a great choice.
