Review: Samsung T809
Messaging on the t809 was a breeze, thanks to the great keypad and exceptional display. Slide the phone open, hit left on the D-pad, and you're composing a message. This is our preferred method as opposed to being presented with message type selection. Instead, from the composition screen, adding pictures, video, or sound is accessed from the options menu. Pressing the center button moves forward to a choice between the recent log, phonebook, and phone number entry. A nicety under the recent log that we haven't noticed on previous phones: the first option is select all.
