Great, simple phone.

I loved it, and it was a reliable phone that got the job done. It survived falling in water, dropped down stairs, my dog, and the blistering cold. The Internet was really slow, but that's what you'd expect from this kind of phone in this day and age. If you don't care for smartphones too much, and you want a phone cheap, this is your answer.Build quality 8/10Reception 7/10Call quality 8/10Internet 4/10Multimedia 5/10Camera 5/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 7/10Text input 10/10Display 7/10Battery 9/10

I think this is a pretty good phone. I really enjoy the fact that the network is very nice. I get clear calls and the phone construction is very strong. I like Straight Talk for the fact that the network is very reliable. I havent figured out everything on the phone yet but I am working diligently to do this. I would recommend this phone if you are looking to spend around $100.Build quality 8/10Reception 8/10Call quality 8/10Internet 7/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 7/10UI speed 7/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 7/10Display 8/10Battery 7/10

- Many features that can be overrated

Where this phone really shines is the value through the Straight Talk network. You can use this phone for $30 a month and it is very close to a Smartphone. I like using mine for texting and phone calls because the quality is very good on the verizon network. I would recommend this phone.Build quality 8/10Reception 8/10Call quality 7/10Internet 7/10Multimedia 7/10Camera 6/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 7/10Display 7/10Battery 6/10

Good Phone for the Price
I've seen a lot of reviews that say that this phone doesn't stack up to blackberry and is not good for business use. The simple fact is that if you work for a company that is worth anything then they should get you a company phone with multiple business applications and if you want a phone for business but work for yourself then understand that you get what you pay for and don't get a phone on a plan that is a prepaid wireless service. Go with a major carrier that will make you sign a contract for a minimum of 2 years to get a state of the art phone. If you don't want to sign a long term contract and want reliable service then this is a great phone. I have this phone on straight talk and for a personal use phone it is a great phone. I travel in rural areas in the south and still have decent coverage. I have found that I can access most websites that I access on a daily basis on my personal computer. For the price of $45 for unlimited talk, text, and mobile web, along with free 411, this is a steal.Design 8/10Features 8/10Performance 8/10

very dissapointed in these phone. It looks like a blackberry but is not at all. great for talk and text... calendar is difficult. some alarms go on and off....some don't.... forget using the web.... it's horrible... it needs lots of work!!! not for the business savy person. I would not recommend this phone at all.Design 5/10Features 2/10Performance 1/10
- looks like a nice phone
- features are difficult to use and misleading

Not what I was looking for
To txt is ok, like any other qwerty phone, but don' t try to see pictures, listen to mp3, or even browse the web. You are going to get annoyed by this lousy phone. The browser always tells you not enough memory for this operation. You can download almost anything from the web. Its frustrating while trying to surf simple sites. If you got the hundred bucks, buy an used phone. But not these one!Design 7/10Features 5/10Performance 3/10
- makes you believe you got a blackberry-like phone.
- makes you feel stupid for spending a hundred in the blackberry-like phone, because is not even a good phone at all.

some features of samsung sch - r355
If you are addicted to text messaging, this low price phone is a good substitute. its a 100 dollar phone, price may vary from place to place.
The looks are very similar to blackberry phones, and the camera quality is average, camera resolution is upto 1280 x 960, horizontal and vertical resolution 0f 72dpi, bit depth 24, color representation is sRGB.
And yes GPRS is available.Design 10/10Features 5/10Performance 7/10
