Editors Liked

  • Responsive touch panel. Good camera and video recorder. Plenty of mobile media features, all of which are included in Sprints Everything plan
  • Nice body design, good text input, great voice search
  • Snazzy interface in an improved body. Good calling features. Exchange support, even for calendars and contacts (kind of). Very good GPS performance.
  • Slimmer profile, smooth lines feel great in hand, 32GB of internal memory
  • The Samsung Instinct S30 offers a slick design, bigger external memory, and an attractive touch-screen interface. Features are respectable and the call quality is satisfactory

Editors Didn't Like

  • Low-res screen. No Wi-Fi. Reception could be stronger. Some clumsy interface elements
  • Slower 3G, UI still feels awkward
  • No significant improvements to feature set or UI since the last version. Great Opera Web browser is hidden in the menus. Disappointing camera. Lacks any IM options.
  • Still no WiFi, Weak camera capabilities
  • The Samsung Instinct S30's video quality is erratic and it lacks Wi-Fi and camera editing options. In a disappointing move, Samsung and Sprint downgraded the EV-DO support
