Great budget phone or for use as a backup.

 

Jun 24, 2012 by ungibbed   updated May 6, 2013

Pros:

Decent build quality.
No having to remove the rear cover to get to the MicroSD card.
Decent call quality over the earpiece and speakerphone.
Great music player with some features only found in far more expensive phones.
SMS/MMS themes in the messaging app.
Custom font features from the system menu.

Cons:

Very small screen which makes typing rather difficult.
Limited internal application storage.
Limited to 3G, but holds on quite well.
Annoying hatch for the USB cable/charger.

I discovered this tiny mystery after my BlackBerry took a dive and I needed a replacement phone quick and on a tight budget for the moment, this phone was perfect.

Upon my first impression of this phone, I was rather baffled on it's tiny size but also discovered the price to pay for such a tiny phone. After starting it up and using it a bit, the display really was a major negative. Making text hard to read and images not really worth the time of showing your friends (especially when taken with the fixed focus camera).

Typing in portrait really was a chore with large hands, landscape didn't fare much better. After buying a few key apps such as a third party keyboard and the Galaxy Font utility, those two alone made a major difference. Not only on easier text input, but reading was far improved by switching the system font to Tahoma.

The largest surprises I found in this budget device were features that are missing on the Galaxy S2 for T-Mobile. One was a rather neat theme ability for messaging but the other I really enjoyed and it was something many overlook.

I had a 16GB MicroSD card that I had a ton of music on and after a long session of indexing album artwork and other info, I noticed a subtle feature that never made it onto any other Samsung phone to date. When browsing albums, the cover art is faded and placed in the background while looking at individual songs. A nice touch for a low end device.

So much more, but limited to 2000 characters.

Samsung Dart - Decent for its price....

 

Jan 26, 2012 by thenewvessel

Paid $129.99 at Wal-Mart.

Pros:
- Very Affordable
- Android OS
- 800Mhz (Similar speed as LG Optimus T)
- Snappy processor speeds/phone runs smooth
- Easy to root

Cons:
- Plastic Feel
- Almost too small for comfort
- HORRIBLE screen resolution

Basically, if your short on cash and need a nice phone, this phone is the way to go. It's decently cheap, runs OS, and is a decently smooth/snappy running phone.

Worst Phone! T-Mobile still has a future!

 

May 18, 2012 by kyle2012nyc

PROS:
None!

CONS:
~ Horrible Processor 600 mhz!
~ Very unreliable web browsing ( frozes many times, verynslow many times). Now, I really hope that it's because of the slow processor and not because T-Mobile has a small spectrum for their HSPA+ Internet Network.
~Horrible screan quality!
~Text Messaging is useless (3.2 touchscrean and no physical qwerty bottons?)

I will soon test T-Mobile's Samsung Galaxy S II (FAST 1.5 GHZ PROCESSOR AND 1GB RAM, PHONE). All official reviews report amazing internet speeds with that device (it uses the same HSPA+ Network). If I find it's false then it will mean that I have to wait for LTE Networ arrival!
