Review: Samsung Replenish
The Replenish uses the stock Google calling and contacts applications. From the home screen, press the phone icon and the dialer pops open. There is a large number pad in the middle of the screen, and there are four tabs along the top to access the call log, contacts and favorites. The Replenish offers haptic feedback when you dial numbers on the touch display, but not the QWERTY keyboard.
The Replenish will import all of your Google and Exchange contacts if you have them. Adding Facebook friends is optional. If you choose to do that, the contacts application is smart enough to add the Facebook profile photos to your existing contacts and merge them into one contact.

If you press the area next to the profile picture/Android, it will open the contact's page. Use the menu key to make changes or perform other actions.
