Fascinating as they are, ultra high-end handsets are not everybody's cup of tea. In fact, the good old mid-range is the bread and butter for every successful mobile phone company, for that's what gets those sales numbers right. As we see it, Samsung...

2.6" 262K-color TFT display of QVGA resolution ; 3G with HSDPA ; Trackball navigation ; Built-in GPS receiver ; Symbian OS with S60 user interface ; Wi-Fi (Samsung i550w only) ; 3 megapixel camera with auto focus ; MicroSD card slot ; 3.5mm stereo...

Tri-band GSM support only ; Trackball is somewhat slow ; No two-step shutter key ; No Wi-Fi (Samsung i550) ; A bit too conservative looks ; Video recoding limited to QVGA resolution ; Awkward soft key layout ; No RDS

I'd definitely recommend this for somebody who wants a phone for navigation and general multi-media usage

Big screen, good navigation app for GPS, Wi-fi and 3.5G enabled, 3.5mm earphone port

Design flaws, CIF resolution video recording, expensive
