Review: Samsung T259
The T259's clear forte are its voice capabilities. Call quality was superb all around, even though Bluetooth headsets. Battery life is commendable, and the T259 never had any problems with T-Mobile's network.
The T259's other features at least mean you can have a little bit of fun with it if you are so inclined, but the performance of apps such as the media player can't possibly match higher-end devices. It's worth repeating that the camera software is decent, and the T259 manages to take at least MMS-worthy photos on a consistent basis. The browser and T-Mobile's web2go services aren't blazing fast, but they are easy to use and offer an avenue out into the wider web.
If you're in the market for a low-cost, well-performing voice phone, the T259 from Samsung is a solid option.
