Samsung Profile review: A familiar texting phone

CNET reviews the Samsung Profile, a new messaging phone for U.S. Cellular.

Samsung Profile for U.S. Cellular

U.S. Cellular's Samsung Profile is an eerily familiar messaging phone.

Although it's purpose-built for texting, it's quite basic when it comes to other communications. However, if phone calls and text messages are your primary interest, the Profile is a good fit. There is an e-mail app you can download and a service you can opt into, however.

Call quality on U.S. Cellular's roaming network was quite good in our San Francisco tests, though we'd recommend you try the phone in-store to see how it sounds in your region.

The Profile costs $39.99 with a new two-year contract. Read up on the full details and watch our video here.
