Cell Phones: Samsung Drift

 

If you're intrigued by Helio's MySpace client social-networking software, the Drift is the best way to experience it.

Looks great. Nice interface. Good voice quality. Good camera.

Annoying Bluetooth settings. Not many people have Helio, making it hard to take mobile-to-mobile minutes.

Samsung Drift

 

The Samsung Drift is one of the coolest phones that I have ever owned. There are plenty of features that this phone does well including having the capability of GPS, Google Maps, a QVGA display screen, a two mega pixel camera, high speed data...

This phone has a definite cool factor ; GPS and Google Maps work great on the phone and are easy to use ; XVGA display screen is one of the finest I have ever seen ; Memory slot helps out a lot ; Slider works good, not flimsy ; Stereo Bluetooth worked...

Low speakerphone volume ; Low ringer volume, it could definitely be better ; Battery runs low quickly, especially if you are using Google Maps or surfing the web ; The clock can be difficult to see when the screen dims

I love this phone. It looks cool, has some unique features, has a great user interface and works great. If you are looking for an ultra cool phone, you should definitely look into the Samsung Drift.

Excellent Phone, Excellent Service!

 

I just can't say how much I love this phone! I switched to Helio from Cingular and am happier and happier everyday with my choice. First of all, let me say that I switched from a Treo 680 to the Drift. Needless to say, I thought I would have a lot of...

AMAZING PHONE

 

What an amazing phone, everything is great on this phone, however it would be nice if the plans were cheaper. It would be so nice if this phone was available for sprint this would be top seller no doubt......

Important: No JAVA!

 

I was about to purchase this phone and switch from Cingular to Helio, but thank goodness I did some additional research before buying! A previous reviewer mentioned that he or she had trouble accessing Gmail, and that that was a dealbreaker for this...
