could the reviewer be any more biased or misinformed?

i can't believe it was compared to the iPhone and G1, not once, but twice. that's like comparing a ford focus with a lexus. pfft.

9.99 for Sprint Navigation, yes if you have a basic data plan. Oh i'm sorry Mr. Reviewer but I forgot that you GET TO PICK YOUR ADD ONS A LA CARTE with Sprint unlike the G1 and iPhone.

you griped about the music player twice. i got it the first time, you don't like the music player.
A focus can be compared to a Lexus in some ways. In performance the Ford Focus RS8 could whip most offerings from Lexus (the IFS is Excluded from that list) but as a luxury Car most Lexus Vehicles are better than the focus. so it all depend on the cat...

message deletion reminder

does anyone know how to shut off the reminder you get when your text is full and is going to delete oldest message, when your phone is set to auto delete.

OPERA MINI not supported

I was in the SPrint store looking for a new phone and was testing the functionality of the higher end phones with support for opera mini.
This phone crashed repeatedly while trying to install the app.

The only ones of interest that ran it were teh new motorola (I dont remember te model but it has PTT and I hated it.) and the LG lotus with limited functionality becase of the non traditional keypad.

So, I will wait.

It fails in it's key duty as a music player phone.

If this phone is supposed to be a music player phone, it fails. In the review, the worst part of this phone was the music player. Partially Sprint's fault (with their insistence to latch music store), but also Samsung, who have not taken the music listening experience as seriously as Sony Ericsson or Nokia in the music world.

And the phone looks like a cheap Chocolate 2 phone.
cheap vers of a chocolate Eh? ???? you must be joking buddy! samsung has been making cell phones a lot longer, and also makes a much better quality cell phone!!

please enlighten me as to how the highnote fails specifically as a music phone.......??...

Does the scroll ring work for scanning through audio?

I listen to long podcasts, it would be really nice if the scrolly wheel can be used to skip through the track. Currently, I have to hold the fast-forward button down FOREVER to get through 20 minutes of audio.
I played with one today at a sprint vendor convention and it was really cool. it felt a lot like an LG chocolate but had the sprint one click which in my opinion is very convienient.. to answer your question, idk but i would assume so because it uses ...

Sort of looks like the Chocolate 2.

With a Nokia like set of music keys.
