Samsung steps into the Android fray with its Moment. This bulky phone has a touch screen, real QWERTY keyboard and Wi-Fi. It earns passing marks on most fronts but we found a few low points, too.

If you're a Sprint customer looking for an Android phone — and require a physical keyboard — the Samsung Moment offers an alternative to the HTC Hero. While it offers a keyboard and trick optical mouse pad, it lags on the software side of things. Whether or not you go with the Moment or Hero depends a lot on your personal preferences.

Moment Vs. Hero
Hero = 5 MP Camera (No Flash)
Momemnt = 3.2 MP Camera (With Flash)

Hero = 7 Home Screens
Moment = 3

Hero = Touchscreen keyboard
Moment = Large physical keyboard
Advantage = Moment
... Overall I think the moment is a slightly better phone even though they are both solid.

None of the reviews mention if it has a media player capable of watching one's own video content, ie. tv shows, videos, and/or movies.
