Review: Samsung Moment

Form Basics Extras Video Wrap-Up Comments  18  

The Samsung Moment feels like it is Samsung's first Android phone. Samsung took the stock Android operating system and matched it with a form factor that Samsung knows is popular with messaging fanatics -- and then didn't do anything else with it.

The hardware performs well enough. With the exception of the GPS radio, everything on the phone worked as it is supposed to with minimal glitches. The controls are easy to use, the manufacturing is solid, and the keyboard provides excellent travel and feedback. On the downside, the Moment is large and heavy.

Android 1.5 is a capable platform, and the Moment will be compatible with Android 1.6 when it becomes available. While it covers all the basics well, there is minimal flash or excitement in using Android.

The Moment is certainly a solid pick for those that definitely want Android and a real keyboard on the Sprint network, but HTC's Hero provides a more enjoyable alternative.
