Samsung T509 Phone

 

Samsung's exceptionally tiny t509 handset makes quite a fashion statement with its sleek profile. I looked at a shipping version of this standard cell phone, and was impressed with the number of features packed into its slim frame.

Super slim design looks very sleek Supports T-Mobile's fast EDGE network

Boxy phone is uncomfortable to hold

The t509 costs $200 (as of 9/8/06) with a two-year contract from T-Mobile. For such a fashionable phone, that's a fair deal; and with rebates and online discounts, you may be able to find it for as low as $50

Samsung SGH-T509

 

The Samsung T509 sets the bar for thin, budget phones

Very thin. Bright screen. Bluetooth. Great price.

Feels a bit fragile. Could be louder.

Samsung SGH-T509 - silver (T-Mobile) review: Samsung SGH-T509 - silver (T-Mobile)

 

intro Ever since Motorola sparked a cell phone design revolution with its slim Razr handset, Samsung has been right behind it, producing thin models of its own. In December, the Samsung MM-A900 for Sprint emerged as a viable competitor to the Razr, and...

The Samsung SGH-T509 has an attractive design with user-friendly controls and a great display. It also has a solid feature set, including Bluetooth, a speakerphone, and support for EDGE.

The Samsung SGH-T509 feels fragile and suffers from mixed call quality.

Though some performance issues make it far from perfect, the Samsung SGH-T509 is a step above the Motorola Slvr L6.

Samsung SGH-T509 Review

 

Last year Samsung entered the ultra-thin arena with its MM-A900 clamshell for Sprint, battling against and reminiscent of Motorola's popular RAZR handset. Although eerily similar in form and design, the MM-A900 was technologically more advanced,...

Samsung t509 - Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

Is it possible to own a geometric shape? After all, Apple was sued over their "Cube" design. So if Motorola finds a way to claim ownership of the "rectangle" because of their SLVR, then the Samsung t509 by T-Mobile might be in a bit of trouble....

Very fast, responsive interface; bright, good-looking screen; sharp camera with visual effects; file manager; Bluetooth well designed; versatile IM program ; Cons: T-zones/data feature very limited

Very fast, responsive interface; bright, good-looking screen; sharp camera with visual effects; file manager; Bluetooth well designed; versatile IM program ;

The Samsung is a tri-band GSM phone, supporting the 850, 1800, or 1900 frequency bands. Those of you who travel to Europe frequently will want to consider a phone which also has the 900MHz band. Audio output was clear with good volume, regardless of...

The phone comes in a completely silver, futuristic-looking mobile phone that comes in the newer, more modern-looking bar shape, which has become very popular over the past few years. The phone weighs a very impressive and compact 77 grams, which is...

Just fine

 

Some other way to get data on the phone other than blue tooth would have been a good idea.

Works as advertised. The phone works when I need it to

None really
