Samsung Moment - Pocket-lint

 

This makes the T-Mobile G1 look good and that's saying something

AMOLED screen, speed, simplicity will appeal to the inner geek in you

Design, slide-out keyboard, lack of customisation

The Samsung Moment really is one of those handsets that looks so much better on paper than in real life. The specs suggest this will be a monster, and in fairness in performance it is. The trouble is that it is incredibly dull both in its software...

Sprint Samsung Moment review

 

We review the Samsung Moment, Sprint's first Android-powered smartphone

Good full QWERTY keypad ; Nice, bright 3.2-inch AMOLED display

Laggy at times, despite an 800MHz processor ; Trouble configuring Google email (yes, on a phone running Google's OS) ; Overpriced at $180

Barring the Gmail configuration issues I experienced (hopefully due to an early pre-release version of the software), the Samsung Moment is a solid offering from Sprint. While it certainly isn't the most spry Android phone on the market despite its...

Samsung Moment (Sprint)

 

This Android phone offers an ultrabright display and slide-out keyboard, but it's a bit plain compared to the competition.

The Samsung Moment performs well, and boasts one of the brightest touchscreens on any phone. However, it’s the least exciting Android device to use. It runs outdated software, and the similarly priced HTC Hero on Sprint offers the highly customizable...

Samsung Moment

 

Roomy, comfortable QWERTY keyboard ; Stunning AMOLED display

Touch display can be slow ; Android OS 1.5 has quirks

The Moment impresses with a vivid AMOLED display and roomy QWERTY keyboard, but the software is quirky and the touchscreen can be slow.

Samsung Moment (Sprint) review:

 

In case you haven't noticed, the Google Android dam has broken. For almost a year, HTC was the only manufacturer to offer handsets with the operating system, but in the past month, Motorola and Samsung almost fell over each other to offer Android...

The Samsung Moment has a bright display with a spacious keyboard. Productivity features are plentiful and call quality is clear.

The Samsung Moment's touch interface and controls were a little sluggish. The camera lacks editing features, call volume could be louder, and speakerphone quality was just average.

With its full keyboard and bright display, the Samsung Moment successfully rounds out Sprint's Android offerings.

Samsung Moment Review

 

Sprint debuted Android with a bang with the HTC Hero, but somewhat lost was that the Samsung Moment (nee, Instinct Q) would be coming just a few weeks behind. Well the time is here and the Moment has arrived with its full QWERTY keyboard and AMOLED...

Review Of Samsung Moment Cell Phone – Sprint

 

The first phone to join the Android revolution was the HTC. Samsung is the latest to board ship; the HTC was the first one. Now, OS is not the only thing that seems to have been borrowed from HTC, the looks also seems to be lifted. Yes, the Samsung...

Great keyboard, Good Video and Music Quality, Internet Access, Good Call Quality

Bad camera, nothing else

The Samsung Moment is a good smart phone barring the camera. Everything else about the phone is quite pleasing and it strongly makes it case if you are looking for a phone that comes with all-in-one package. Buy this phone if you are not a shutter bug...

Review: Samsung Moment smartphone

 

Sony may be on the cusp of introducing the PSP Go, a new handheld gaming system that seems to have borrowed some design cues from the iPhone and iPod touch.

Just on looks, the Moment doesn’t stand out from the crowd, either. The minimalist handset, with a silver and black color scheme, is a bit on the larger side, measuring 4.6 by 2.3 by 0.6 inches thick. It weighs a hefty 5.7 ounces, which is heavier than...

Samsung Moment Review

 

Sprint's second Android-based smartphone, the Samsung Moment, features a 3.2-inch AM-OLED screen, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, an optical joystick, fast processor, and Wi-Fi. Jen Edwards brings us a review.

Gorgeous AM-OLED display ; Exceptional call quality ; Easy to use ; Good keyboard

A bit gigger than average ; Only a 3.2 MPx camera

The Samsung Moment is the first Android device from Samsung, and it’s generally a winner. The display is simply gorgeous, and the call quality is so good your callers may not believe you’re using a mobile phone.
