Review: Samsung T809

Form Basics Extras Video Wrap-up Comments  23  

Menus Calls / Contacts Messaging  

Call records are all controlled from a single screen, with the left and right D-pad buttons used for filtering out missed, incoming, and outgoing calls. The type of call is also differentiated using a uniquely colored icon next to the number or contact name in the list. The calls list keeps a number to the right of each contact in the list, which tracks the number of received, sent, or missed calls.

Each of the t809's 1000 possible contacts, in addition to first and last names, included fields for mobile, home, office, fax numbers, as well as picture, ring-tone, and group. The phone does lack voice dialing, which was curious in light of the voice recorder that is included on the phone.

The in-call menu options are not as easy to use as they look. On the plus side, the speakerphone is easily enabled and disabled from the main menu. On the down side, after putting our first call on hold to answer a second call, the immediate menu option is to join the two calls. This function is something we use very rarely, particularly when compared to simply swapping back to the first call while the second one disconnects.
