I have always liked Samsungs approach to GUI – everything is very colorful, animated and hi-tech looking. I think the Samsung's ability to create interactive menu systems has contributes for their success in the recent years. 
Unfortunately, the customization of the phone is somewhat limited. You have a choice of several animated home screens plus different ring tones. That is about it. The keys of the d-pad which serve as shortcuts to different functions like camera, Voice Memo can not be re-assigned. The Menu and PhoneBook soft-keys on the home screen can not be changed. Like other Samsung models, Phone profiles are not supported and the only option available is to silence the phone.

What I found awkward is that when you hit the Phone Book key, you go directly into a Search mode. After around 5 minutes experimenting (and refusing to read the manual) I finally found that I had to press “C” in order to go into the Phonebook's main menu. Other than that the Phonebook interface is very easy to use with support for groups, Picture ID and Multiple Numbers per contact. Lacking is the voice-dialing – a feature that Samsung finds unnecessary to include in its models. Like with other Samsung models, there is no COPY-ALL feature so you can transfer all the numbers stored in your phone to your SIM card. Other than that, the addition of new contact and overall operation of the phonebook is easy and straight-forward
