Good fashion phone

Samsung has been a newcomer with Rogers (only 3 models in 2 years), but it has made quite a reputation, with its reliable phones and nice-looking screens.
Pros : The screens are fantastic (no surprise coming from Samsung). The exterior one is crystal-clear (not like the one one the Motorola RAZR). The camera is one of the best on the market, the sensor is fast and responsive, and the results are really nice. The menus are easy to use and the phonebook features work really well. Lastly, the built quality seems rock-solid.
Cons : This phone is way overpriced for its features. The most notable is that this phone is only 2 bands (no world roaming capabilities). Also, there are no video modes nor is there a speakerphone. For 30$ less, you can have a V551 with twice the features of that phone! Also, the headset connector is not standard, you have to buy the original from Samsung.
For my part, I find that if you don't need world roaming, this phone is one of the best you can get. I'm looking forward to what Samsung has for us next.
