Available in grey or black, the Samsung Link is a full QWERTY candy bar style phone offering Bluetooth with A2DP, 1.3MP camera, MP3 player, web browser, and expandable memory via microSD. It comes with a complete entry-level feature set including alarm, voice memo, tip calculator and speakerphone.

The 2.2-inch 220 x 176 pixel resolution display is decent, especially at this price point.

The Link supports threaded texting, MMS, some voice command functions, and WAP browsing.

If you prefer the candy bar form factor with a full QWERTY, and you're happy with a simple set of features, take a look at the Samsung Link. However, keep in mind that cell phone options are enormous these days, and if you look around, in this case you will find a stronger feature set in a similar price range.

Sturdy phone, has all the basics

I've had this phone for almost 3 years now, and it's still working just fine. It survived many many MANY drops, and a cracked screen from when I accidentally crushed it on a cellphone charm. The phone doesn't have an "=" symbol, and inserts random symbols while you're texting. It could be just the white version of this phone, but over time, the keyboard keys started to wear off, and become and ugly grey/black color. It has a calculator, calendar, alarm, and memo pad that works very well too.

It is a great phone for $50!

(4 years ago)

This is not the BEST phone but is a wonderful phone for $50! It is my first phone and I am very pleased. I have dropped this phone multiple times and it is still working fine. Not the best camera but that's about all that is not good. I definitely recommend it.

I had the Samsung Link from September 2009 - September 2010, when my contract said I was eligible for a new phone. Then I got the Samsung Entro. That phone was absoloutely HORRIBLE. Took 10 minutes to start up and froze whenever I pressed the space button. So after 6 monthes with the Entro, I came back to my Link and even though the keyboard is pretty small, I definitely love this phone more than any other one I've had.

What more could you want from a $60 phone?

(4 years ago)

Good battery life, a music player, the camera is ok, it has a full keyboard for texting and it is a better phone than a lot of expensive smart phones. Of course it doesn't do everything... it is a $60 phone.

I have had this phone for four months now. I like Samsung as a company. However this phones qwerty keyboard like most cell phone keyboards is small. Some of the symbols should be but can't be gotten by the shift key or elsewhere. The contacts section is very useful. By clicking on a persons name you see the phone number, can choose a specific ringer for each contact, see contact history, add a photo, edit the name and there are a few features that aren't explained like hard and soft pause. I like the many features of the phone. I find the memo pad allows little writing. but the voice memo and voice service are unique for people who like listening.
