Review: Samsung Dart
The Dart is a decent little phone. It handles the basics — such as phone quality, signal performance, and battery life — with aplomb. Its size and weight are good, and the phone is a breeze to use and carry about. Once you start diving into more advanced, features, however, its status as an entry-level smartphone is clearly visible.
The messaging options are limited to the stock basics unless you go diving into the Android Market. The media experience also relies on the Android Market to round it out.
My biggest gripes with the Dart are the low screen quality (c'mon, my 2005 Palm Treo had a better display), and the crummy camera and video camera performance.

Who, then, is the Dart for? Well, if you're looking for a small smartphone that covers the basics, then the Dart is a solid choice. If you don't mind the lack of advanced features, the Dart's commendable battery life alone is worth a recommendation. For the more demanding user, however, the Dart's skimpy media powers may not quite hit the bulls-eye.
