In-depth review of the razor-thin Samsung T809 slider for T-Mobile.

The Samsung t809 is T-Mobile's gorgeous new fashion phone, and it certainly is the light around which people will crowd. The t809's display is hands-down one of the best we've seen, and particularly in such a svelte phone. If you find yourself texting occasionally, sharing photos and video, or just using your phone as a flashlight, the t809 will surpass your expectations. However if you plan on using the t809 as heavy texting tool or a camera replacement, it won't stand up to the job.
Hands-on report from the DigitalFocus press event in New York City. Extensive photos and info on the Samsung T809 slim slider and the feature-packed Nokia Eseries business smartphones.
Our report from CES in Las Vegas. Hands-on with Cingular 3G phones, Moto ROKR E2, Sony Ericsson W810, new Samsung sliders, Pantech's new lineup, and more!
Red announced its "holographic 4-view" phone more than a year ago. After several delays, it is finally ready for prime time.
The Galaxy Note9 from Samsung is a powerful and impressive piece of hardware. This Android phone offers a massive screen, a giant battery, and a killer set of cameras.
The Galaxy A6 from Samsung finds a good spot in the middle of Sprint's lineup. This affordable Android phone features a metal chassis, a pair of capable 16-megapixel cameras, and Samsung's Infinity Display.

I think he does a good job and will be a great fit here at PhoneScoop
Nice, but Disapointing for the money
After less than a week of use, I had to return the phone. I loved it, but couldn't live with it's shortcomings. A phone in this class without voice dialing is DISAPOINTING. The cumbersome interaction between phone functions of answering/placing a call when using a bluetooth headset is also disapointing.
Stunning Design and very good to look at. I loved it!
Great PC software, although no sync
Great call quality.
Excellent phonebook functions allowing multiple numbers to be stored per contact.
Poor OEM choice of ringers! I hate music as ringtones!
Poor Bluetooth Interaction
No Voice Dialing
DIFFICULT if not impossible to download mp3 and assign ringtones from the PC. It is using DRM ...
However, saying it's disappointing for the money is a little mi...
I love it
I would disagree mostly on the speakerphone/mp3 quality. It is definitely the worst ive had. I transferred ther same mp3 from my old phone so I was truly comparing apples to apples. 1st, there is no range(highs or lows) plus the volume was low.
I thought the user interface was quite poor. I especially had trouble with the clear ("c") button b/c it was positioned too close to the directional pad.
bluetooth: Maybe I had a defective phone, but the ra...
Another thing about this phone is it feels cheap in the hand. Unlike the samsung a90...
