For those who love to text, the Samsung r355c could be the phone you’ve been waiting for. Its keyboard is suitable for texting having a QWERTY layout similar to most Blackberry devices. The Samsung r355c is the second texting model made available for the Straight Talk market. The phone is another version of Samsung SCH-r350, which is also known as Samsung freeform. It has a 1.3 megapixel built in camera, which includes some basic features like zoom and a handful of auto-settings for white balance, picture detail and special effects. I was testing the camera and the results are fine, I can adjust the camera’s feature according to my preference. The night mode is such a big help to make the scene clearer. It lets me take pictures in multiple shots and with a self timer; the resulting pictures can then be edited by inserting effects.
What’s great about the phone is it is available on both Net10 and Straight Talk, so you can get it with the level of minutes that best fits your needs. For people who use 100-250 minutes per month, Net10 will be a good choice for you and you’ll pay a flat $.10 per minute or $.025 per text message. Heavier users will want to check out Straight Talk’s two-tiered plans: 1000 minutes, 1000 texts, and 30mb of data for $30/month, or unlimited everything for $45 per month.
I find the functions of the phone easy to navigate. The phone has buttons for speaker phone and camera making it quicker to navigate to the applications. The volume keys are comfortably placed on the right side letting you adjust the volume in an easy manner while having a conversation on the phone. I most of all enjoy its QWERTY layout which lets me access the web and text message in quickly manner.
I am also glad that the phone supports extra storage on a microSD card, as this will help me in storing my music and pictures. Another awesome feature of straight talk is the ability to connect the phone to your car using Bluetooth, letting you listen to calls on stereo speakers.
I think the Samsung r355c is a phone that would likely satisfy its users. The features are good and will fulfill most users’ needs. You won’t regret your purchase if you decide to go with this device.
