Review: Samsung T809
Call records are all controlled from a single screen, with the left and right D-pad buttons used for filtering out missed, incoming, and outgoing calls. The type of call is also differentiated using a uniquely colored icon next to the number or contact name in the list. The calls list keeps a number to the right of each contact in the list, which tracks the number of received, sent, or missed calls.
Each of the t809's 1000 possible contacts, in addition to first and last names, included fields for mobile, home, office, fax numbers, as well as picture, ring-tone, and group. The phone does lack voice dialing, which was curious in light of the voice recorder that is included on the phone.
The in-call menu options are not as easy to use as they look. On the plus side, the speakerphone is easily enabled and disabled from the main menu. On the down side, after putting our first call on hold to answer a second call, the immediate menu option is to join the two calls. This function is something we use very rarely, particularly when compared to simply swapping back to the first call while the second one disconnects.

Samsung today announced its lineup of flagship phones for 2022: the Galaxy S22 series. The top-end S22 Ultra sees the biggest changes as it essentially absorbs Samsung's Note series with an integrated S Pen stylus and a more Note-like shape and design, instead of the Contour Cut design of the other models.
The new Motorola edge+ (2023) is the company's newest flagship phone. It builds on the same formula as last year's model when it comes to features, including dual 50 megapixel cameras.
