Review: Samsung T809
Samsung's user interface is unique and very easy to manipulate, thanks largely to the excellent display.

Each menu item is also tied to a keypad number, providing a similar keypad navigation strategy to Nokia Series 40 phones. The highlighted element in the menu is brilliant blue, which eliminates any discrepancy about what is currently selected. Interface response is quick, and in our testing we weren't able to find a place where the system bogged down.
