Samsung SPH-M520 Review
We really like the M520; it has a good form factor and we are excited to see a slider return to Sprint. For a mid-range phone it has a full feature set, and the build quality is top notch despite its plastic housing. It will appeal to average and advanced users alike, thanks to its classic good looks and powerful software. In fact, we would really like to see Samsung beef up the phone with a better camera, display and materials for a premium version. All in all, we think Samsung and Sprint have a real winner on their hands.
- Small form factor
- Strong feature set and price point
- Solid phone performance
- Live Search application
- Elegant design
- A metal housing would have been nice, though the plastic does not feel cheap
- Relatively low resolution camera
- Battery did not live up to rating, though still should be plenty for the average user

This thing feels incredible in your hands. The first time I pulled this out for a customer, I was shocked by how high-tech and expensive it felt, especially for a $50 phone after rebates. The software is similar to any other Samsung Sprint phone, which I like. I think this thing is going to be nearly as big as the Rumor.
