Conclusion

Offered only by Sprint, the Samsung MM-A900 equals the Razr’s thin profile but raises the bar with a couple of refinements and some extra features not found on the Motorola handset, including a 1.3-megapixel camera with a swiveling lens and a flash, an MP3 player, and support for Sprint’s new 3G network. 3G networks let you speed through Web pages, enjoy streaming music video, watch on-demand video programming, download and play 3D games, and videoconference with your fellow chatterers. While the interface is undoubtedly different on a cell phone, the experience of surfing, downloading, and streaming stands to be very close to that of a broadband connection on a computer.

  3. Farooq Says:

    Seems like this phone is made in a hurry. Battery life is horrible. Needs to be charged almost every day even if it is not used. Paint is coming off after only 8 months of normal use. Bought two phone and the paint problem is happening on both the phone at exactly the same place.

    Got the phone yesterday and already charging the battery. I turned on Power Save and turned off GPS. Maybe I was just too excited about the new phone that I have been playing with it lots. We’ll see how the battery life is after this charge. I like the phone. I think the ringtones are loud. Over all I think this phone is great.

    I love it! It was a gift from my boyfriend for our 1 month anniversary! I think its great, so many things that I didnt even know it could do! I thought the iphone was the only 1 u could do stuff like this on! The camera and camcorder quality are excellent like my jvc camcorder practically 4 real! It does so much and I just got it so Im still learning, im still being shocked by the technology! Its a really nice phone and doesnt feel hella cheap like the razor and sliver!!!!!

    all the people who has problem with battery life with this phone; is because you either leave in a area where you have very low signal or no signal…all the cell phone in world, consume more power finding the signal, so if you have good signal that means you going to have good battery life as well
