Review: Samsung Highnote
Highnote is a Jack-of-all-trades but master of few. Even though Highnote is hyped as a music phone, getting to your tunes takes an annoyingly and indefensibly long time. But my annoyance with the music player doesn't mean that Highnote is a bad phone, especially considering its price. Web speed is exemplary for such an inexpensive phone, the browser, while not spectacular, is workman-like and presents no unnecessary roadblocks to surfing, the speaker for both music and voice is far above average, there are copious email options, and the camera, even if it lacks a flash, takes decent pictures as long as you've got good light. For the price, it's hard to denigrate Highnote's expansive feature set, even if you have to sometimes wrestle with them to make them work.
