Samsung SGH-i550w


Samsung's SGH-i550 is a multimedia mobile equipped with GPS and trackball navigation. Packed with features including a 3.2 Megapixel camera, music player, large 2.6 inch TFT displayand enhanced GPS

Nifty multimedia functions; GPS and its easy search function; has WiFi and HSDPA

Trackball is clunky; GPS easily blocked by buildings; short battery life

The i550w is a jack-of-all-trades and even though it doesn't really shine in any one area, it is still a very good phone as it is feature-packed.
