Review: Samsung Instinct S30

Form Basics Extras Video Wrap Up Comments  5  

Menus Calls/Contacts Messaging  

I compared a number of screen shots from the original Instinct to the new one. To be honest, I can't find very many differences in how it works. The S30's home screen is Sprint's list of favorite shortcuts. This is fully customizable. You can add and rearrange the shortcuts on the home screen at will. This includes applications, actions, web bookmarks, etc. There doesn't appear to be a limit for adding in favorites.

The four software buttons at the bottom of the screen (favorites, main menu, fun and web) are uncharged. The main menu is a standard grid of nine folders/applications that pop up when you hit the button. This menu doesn't appear to be customizable in any way.

The Fun menu is where you find all your content applications, such as the music player, camera, gaming and access to Sprint's application store. This menu can be customized a bit, as items can be added or deleted as you download applications.

The Web button takes you to another grid of icons that allow you to launch the browser, get sports scores, the weather report, etc. You can also add bookmarks to this menu if you so choose, as well as other Sprint content.

In all, the menu system is pretty intuitive. It won't take long to figure out and get used to.
