Samsung FlipShot Price Increase

Samsung FlipShot Price Increase
Now that the holiday season is over, you'll have to pay more if you want to be the owner of a Samsung FlipShot. When the phone was introduced in December, the pricing was $199 with a 2 year contract and $369 at full retail. Butnow, after the $100 price increase, it is $299 with a 2 year contractand $469 at full retail, which are the same price points as the LG Voyager.

Even though the FlipShot is the only 3MP cameraphone in Verizon's line-up, we were not impressed by its image quality, as shown by our recent cameraphone comparison where the V9m and Voyager came out on top. Wealso believe that the Voyager is clearly the better buy (at $299) thanthe FlipShot, considering it includes a large 2.5" touch screen, QWERTY Keypad, Mobile TV capable, and can support up to 8GB microSDHC cards. The V9m (at $249) is also a better deal, since its camera images ranked 1st place and the call quality is excellent.

We'renot sure why Verizon decided to raise the price of the FlipShot, but wecan only guess that they will not sell as many as the
Voyager and V9m.

I'm telling you, this phone isn't as awesome as one would think. I've played with it at Best Buy and I'm not impressed either. If you like video/TV, go buy an LG-VX9400! Much better and more reliable!!

if you want video and tv AND a good camera, as well as real 3g html browsing, and touch screen, get the voyager for the SAME PRICE

Screw that! Just get a Helio Ocean and get it over with.

I honestly don't agree with this but I knew it was coming. The Flipshot was supposed to be $299 from the outset but they only lowered the price for the Xmas season. It's not really a good phone and the camera is pretty mediocre for 3 MP. Just like the 970 and 990 before it, it has plenty of features but sucks as a phone.

I agree. I got one for my wife to replace an LG and the call quality is awful. Lots of wind noise and static. I returned it.
