Overall, a great phone

I started out with a Nokia and was kind of apprehensive about getting a Samsung. However when I got the previous model of the X426, Samsung got a new fan. So when I lost that phone, I decided to go for another Samsung, the X507. There are some obvious improvements over this phone to my previous phone. Of course there are more Internet type functions and it has more multimedia capabilities. However, the things that impressed me were the little things like a stopwatch, a converter that has temperature, money, weight, height and a lot more. There are two alarms that can be set and once I got used to the differences, the text messaging is much improved. Also the calculator is WAY better. However, I really dislike the menu system. On my old phone you could choose between two different menu styles. You can't on this one. And the first menu item that always comes up is "Shop Rogers" which I find extremely annoying. There also aren't very many pleasing wallpapers to choose from and this is obviously a poorly disguised ploy to get us to purchase wallpapers from Rogers. There aren't very many ringtons either, another ploy. And there aren't as many choices for customizing the look and feel of your phone's display which I find a little disappointing. With regards to the design of the phone. It is very sleek and stylish looking. Its a little thicker than I would like though. Its thicker than my previous phone. I like to put it in my pocket and its just a little too thick for it to fit comfortably in my jeans, so I would recommend a case. But aside from those shortcomings I mentioned, it really is a great phone. It works really well and even though it isn't great for customizing and making the phone personal to you, it certainly does what you would need it to do. And if you like to use your phone for mobile internet purposes and multimedia messages, this is definitely the phone for you. Less
