Now that's a real review. Phonescoop you have a bad unit get it together.

Did you forget your other comment?...

I disagree- I think PhoneScoop was very objective with their tests and didn't dwell on the fact it was an iPhone competitor much (given Sprint's massive ad campaign touting it as such.)

Now you're bashing Cnet's review of the Instinct, which do think is more reputable, Cnet or Phonescoop? If phonescoop was objective they would not have called the Instinct an iphone-clone.

As I see it, demand will out pace supply for the first 90-days. In that time, informed shoppers will learn the Instinct's true performance characteristics, and its feature set. From what I have seen, it is a more realistic handset to carry than the unit it is often compared to for a dozen reasons that I don't feel a need to provide to Apple's marketing team. It will likely not sell as many units as its competitor, but it doesn't have to in order to be a success. Rocco Mediate didn't defeat Tiger, but he is likely not going to cry when he cashes his 2nd place check tomorrow morning.

you make some good points.

I don't think this phone will kill the iPhone, but 2nd place in this market is still an amazing acheivement.

Samsung plans to have production numbers to match or closely match what the iPhone did in the first few weeks. Not that they'll sell them, but I just hope we don't have a normal sprint thing where they release a phone and send two to five to each store. They are telling us that store should expect at least 20 a piece for the pre-launch, and probably another 20-40 for the national launch. I could be way off though, so don't quote me on that.
