Some phones are good for music playback while others are good for taking pictures. The Samsung Montage is an example of a phone that’s good for messaging on the go.
Its main features include a 2.4-inch QVGA screen, a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth wireless, USB connectivity, and support for microSD cards. It’s actually a fairly basic handset that lacks many of today’s latest phone features; it doesn’t have Wi-Fi or 4G LTE. But what it does have is a hardware QWERTY keyboard that slides out from behind the screen and turns it into a landscape messaging device.
As you can imagine, the Montage is great for long bouts of text messaging or emails. As most reviews note, it’s a very useful messaging phone, for sure. However, its other attributes are quite disappointing overall.
If you've got a bit of room in your budget and aren't 100% set on a physical keyboard, you might be better served by competitive devices.
