The Samsung Freeform 5 is a candybar-style, basic feature phone that offers a 2.4 inch, 160x120 resolution display, QWERTY keyboard, 3 megapixel camera, and a talk time of up to 6 hours.
The Freeform 5’s QVGA display was not well received by most reviewers. “Its screen's QVGA, 320x240-pixel resolution looks unfocused and colors are dull, without gradients,” according to CNET.
The phone's four-row QWERTY keyboard consists of individual raised, contoured keys and a familiar layout. “The Freeform 5’s responsive, compact QWERTY keyboard is a fairly good one, as far as the button layout goes,” CTNTechnologynews said.
Other features include Bluetooth 3.0, WAP browser, Caller ID readout and music player.
If you really want an old-school style QWERTY phone, the Samsung Freeform 5 is an option. However, reviewers suggest considering others. “Consider buying the Samsung Freeform 5 if you really need a QWERTY feature phone, but rival handsets will get you about the same experience for less,” CNET said.

Responsive QWERTY, outdated feature phone
There's absolutely nothing wrong with a feature phone, and for heavy texters with smaller hands, the Freeform 5's responsive, compact QWERTY keyboard is a fairly good one, as far as the button layout goes.
However, Samsung and U.S. Cellular do customers no favors with a proprietary software design that was common five years ago. I believe that the user deserves a bump in resolution, a preloaded Facebook app, more pleasing graphics, and yes, even spell check. Samsung isn't the only offender in this, but a shared culpability with other phone-makers doesn't make the Freeform 5 any more... Full review
Darn, there are no reviews yet for this phone.
