Pro: - Phone Call Clarity - Signal Strength - Large Beautiful Color Screen - Smooth Functioning Slider - Compact and lightweight - Very Cool Touch Screen Keys - Tolerable Battery Life (2days) - Picture and Video Display is Excellent - Customizable Favorite Programs Menu - Packed With Neat Features Con: - Only one theme provided (but that one theme is nice) - No 3G (everyone is hung up on this so I’ll just write it anyway) - Touch Keys are Hyper-Sensitive (but that’s why it’s called touch keys) - Configuring the internet/mms for AT&T was a pain - Overseas phones are not insurable by service providers - Difficult to install applications and games (so I’ve read) Using experience: 2 days The Samsung SGH-E840 is a beautifully crafted intelligent phone that most should immediately fell in love with. The some of the neat features include: Document Viewer - FM Radio, Currency Converter, Calculator, Multiple Alarm Settings, Organizer, To-Do-List, Calendar, 70MB Internal Memory, Extended Memory MicroSD (up to 2GB), Bluetooth technology v 2.0, Quad band, EDGE/GPRS) Less
