Review: Samsung Instinct S30
Samsung takes another stab at the basic Instinct. The S30 is an all-around better phone than its predecessor, but it's still far from perfect.

Samsung and Sprint offer up version number two of last year's Instinct with the S30. It's a touch phone with solid multimedia features and a classy design. The hardware and touch screen are vastly improved, but the software sees only moderate upgrades. Can the new Instinct manage to stand out in a me-too sea of slab-style touch phones?

You complained about how terrible the touch display was, yet none of you were ever willing to admit that you were in fact using a pre-production device and never calibrated the display?
