Samsung Messager II review: Samsung Messager II


The Samsung Messager II has an easy-to-use design with a comfortable, tactile keyboard. Its features are functional, and its performance is satisfactory.

The Messager II's display offers few customization options. The camera lacks a flash and self-portrait mirror and we don't like the placement of the soft keys on the keyboard.

With definite advantages over its predecessor, the Samsung Messager II is a solid addition to MetroPCS and Cricket lineups.

Samsung Messager II SCH-R560 Cell Phone for Metro PCS


Those searching for a messaging phone at an affordable price might want to take a peek at the Samsung Messager II SCH-R560. That's not a typo. They named it the messager, not messenger. Sounds awkward to me, but it's different at least. Keep reading to...

You can also customize your Messager II with different wallpapers and other options that are available, and as with the ringtones, if the standard ones don't tickle your fancy, more are available as downloads

Solid prepaid messaging phone


An improvement on the original

Sturdy design, easy to use, responsive QWERTY keyboard, bluetooth and push-to-talk features

Short-lived battery, no self-portrait mirror or flash for camera, unremarkable call quality, minimal customization
