What the Critics Are Saying...


Mobile Syrup

The Samsung Flight was just released by Rogers and is one of their new “touchphones”. This is available for $49.99 on a 3-year contract and is just a notch up from an entry level device. The Flight has a number of great things going for it. First and foremost it has a 2.8 inch touch...

- Ian Hardy, Mobile Syrup
PhoneArena

The combination of the touchscreen and QWERTY keyboard looks good on paper, but it doesn’t find a solid foundation in which direction to follow.
