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.

Great comments on the 809's build quality. This is an issue that has prevented me from purchasing any type of slider format handset. Not only to I find them cumbersome, but they're just itching to be broken. Having not seen your name before in these pages...welcome!
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.

Poor OEM choice of ringers! I hate music as ringtones!
Poor Bluetooth Interaction
No Voice Dialing

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.
