Although new smartphones are raining down every day for major carriers, the prepaid market is one of the fastest-growing segments in the mobile handset industry, and feature phones like the Samsung SGH-T369 for T-Mobile make up the bulk. You could do a lot worse than the T369, too. It has a compact design and a sturdy sliding mechanism on the slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It also packs in more hardware goodies than the simple shape and stock black color would suggest. By this we mean the camcorder, the music player, and the microSD card slot, of course.
Yet, there are also some forehead-smacking design flaws. The shared Micro-USB charging port/headphone jack is a no-no in our book, and we've gone blue in the face stating our preference for expandable memory slots to live anywhere but behind the back cover, where the t369's microSD card slot is located.Less
I bought this phone with one basic need in mind: a slide out keyboard so I could send texts without the frustration of typing on a number pad. Turns out the keyboard on this phone is just as bad. The buttons don't push well, especially the spacebar (sometimes it doesn't click, sometimes it doubles and adds an unwanted period for good measure). The resulting texts are often an incoherent mess. And I don't have fat fingers. Other problems with this phone: -Even when you turn off all sounds, it still makes very quiet blips and bloops when you're clicking through menus. It's impossible to turn off this feature, as far as I can tell. -The camera is so low-quality that you get the sense it's just there to add a few bucks to the sticker price - it's useless. -The software is horribly dated and very poorly designed.Less
