Samsung Soul SGH U900 review


Is the top-of-the-range 'ultra' phone worth your cash?

Stylish design ; Touchpad control ; Fine 5-megapixel camera ; HSDPA high speed downloads and browsing

Below average music player earphones ; Average battery life

An extremely stylish slider with a quality camera
