Review: Samsung Instinct

Body Basics Extras Video Wrap Up Comments  100+  

There were definitely things we liked about the Instinct, and things we didn't like. The form factor is great. Nice weight, easy to hold, and good looks to boot. But the Instinct suffers some performance issues that make it a questionable choice. Signal quality was poor, and lots of dropped calls were the result.

The touch screen technology is far from perfect, and can be difficult to use at times, but we do find that interacting with touch-based devices is enjoyable on a whole different level compared to regular phones with D-pads.

The camera and video software are seriously lacking in functionality, but the pictures and video are passable. The music player is better than what we've seen on other Sprint phones, but it doesn't match the iPhone.

Lastly, the browser gets the job done better than WAP browsers, but it could be much better. More intuitive controls that are better integrated with the Instinct's touch capabilities could really push the browser into "excellent" territory.
