Samsung R375C review



What's good

  • Full QWERTY keyboard
  • microSD card support for built-in MP3 player
  • Good call quality

What's bad

  • Poor camera performance
  • Small screen
  • Few apps and games

A smartphone doesn't have to run Android -- or any other modern operating system, for that matter -- in order to be considered great. At least that's according to those who have used the QWERTY-keyboard equipped Samsung R375C, which has been described in most reviews as a good basic phone that is available at an attractive price.

Among the R375C’s highlight features are a 2.2-inch color screen, 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, and a built-in MP3 player. It also supports microSD cards for easy memory expansion.

Part of what might make the R375C appealing as well is its outward appearance. One reviewer says it has the upscale look of a BlackBerry, and others mentioned it has the build quality to back it up. It also tends to pick up network signals rather well. Calls were always loud and clear according to most user reviews we found online. And apparently it rings loudly, too.

If you have large fingers, you may find the small keyboard a bit cumbersome. And if you like texting and browsing the Web a lot, the battery may not last a day or more for you. But otherwise, there doesn’t seem to be much to dislike, something the mostly positive reviews we found online attest to.
