At $19.99, the Samsung Mantra SPH-M340 is a very cheap cell phone for Virgin Mobile's equally cheap PayLo prepaid plan. You don't get much for your money, but then again, you aren't really paying much to begin with. If you only need to make calls and are looking for a simple, inexpensive device, the Mantra will do. But if you're looking for anything more than that, you're better off looking elsewhere.

User-friendly phone with functional features

from CNET

The good: The Samsung Mantra has a user-friendly design and a functional feature set that includes Bluetooth and voice dialing. One the whole, voice quality is good.

The bad: The Samsung Mantra has a small external display and subpar photo quality. Call quality at the highest volume levels was slightly distorted.

The bottom line: The Samsung Mantra offers a user-friendly phone with functional features, though its overall performance could be better....
