Samsung Exclaim SPH-M550 ReviewSamsung Exclaim 8
Performance and Conclusion:
Sound quality on the Samsung Exclaim SPH-M550 was good but not great. Users could tell we were on a cell phone, and on our end they sounded a bit distant and hollow, but conversations were still clear enough. Battery life has surprisingly decreased by over an hour, down to 4.75 hours from 5.9. The size remains the same at 960 mAh, so we’re not sure why there is such a dramatic decrease.
All in all the Samsung Exclaim SPH-M550 is a worthy replacement to the Rant. The form factor is not new, but still unique and not just more of the same. Build quality is top notch, and we enjoyed using both keypads. The larger display is always a welcome addition, and small updates to the One Click UI bring added functionality. We’re not sure if these minor improvements justify the $80 price tag on contract, but while high by Sprint standards it’s in line with comparable models such as the enV3.
