CONCLUSION

If you want a fully-featured mobile device with great entertainment features that can help keep you organized in a basic fashion without the complications of a smartphone, give the Samsung Solstice a closer look.

The price is right, and though I have a couple of nitpicks, overall this is a great device. It compares quite favorably to my LG Dare, in a slimmer package with a more responsive touchscreen display.

Samsung SolsticeAll of the expected entertainment options are included, plus quick access to social networking sites such as Facebook and MySpace.

The Solstice should appeal to a wide range of potential users; basically everyone except the hardcore road warriors who truly need a Windows Mobile or Blackberry smartphone.

Pros:

  • Very small and lightweight
  • Large touchscreen display
  • Excellent virtual keyboard
  • Easy to use, no complicated menus
  • Vibrant color display and multiple vibrating alerts

Cons:

  • Camera could be better (though I admit I’m hard to please in this area)
  • External speaker could be better — volume is great, but music sounds a little flat
  • Proprietary charging port, and no standard headphone jack
  • microSD card slot is located under the battery
