Samsung Sync - User Reviews
Samsung Sync users typically agree that the Samsung Sync is heavy in the feature department but a bit light in the looks department. For a phone costing less than $50.00 (with a 2 year contract and after rebates) its most prominent features stand out to music lovers. External controls for the MP3 player, clear speaker even at high volumes, support for Napster, Yahoo Music, streaming XM radio and MobiRadio (requires a subscription fee) as well as a microSD card for loading your own songs.
AT&T (Cingular) has signed an agreement with Napster to include one year of free music, which is a $180.00 savings for its wireless subscribers.
This 3G Sync accepts most all music formats except iTunes. Cingular's high speed video is supported through the HSDA network. Last but not least it has stereo Bluetooth technology that works well with wireless headphones.
Physical features include the feeling of a good and sturdy handset. The internal screen is awesome with its wide viewing angles. Too bad, that the external screen does not get the same accolades. Does anyone wear a wrist watch anymore? Maybe not, since one of the most common complaint heard from owners of the Samsung Sync, is that the external display does not automatically show the time of day. Even though the time can be found when the phone is opened they complain that there is a lag time before the screen lights up.
The 2.0 megapixel cameral takes great pictures when in bright light. The Sync's navigation controls please many owners. The keys are large enough to easily type text messages and emails but to some there is an annoying lag in response times. Multitasking is not a high point. Apparently the MP3 player, as well as the other applications, do not play well together all at the same time. You have to exit one application be opening the next one. However, the MP3 player can be resumed by pushing a button after a call has ended.
Apparently to keep the price down no USB cable, headphones or software is included straight out of the box. An optional kit is available for $40.00.
Users are fairly happy with the battery life even when using the multimedia features. A charge every couple of days kept the music playing.
