Samsung Smooth offers handy features for cheap

The Samsung Smooth is a basic-looking, budget-friendly phone with some compelling extras--it's a good option for Verizon customers who don't want to extend their contracts just to get a reasonable price on a new handset.

Not every cell phone on Earth needs to pack in all the bells and whistles found on ultrahigh-end models like the iPhone. But for those who still want a fair amount of extras at an affordable price, there are handsets like the Samsung Smooth (aka the SCH-U350). This basic mobile for Verizon Wireless costs as little as $29.99 with a contract and comes with some handy extras, such as Bluetooth and a simple Web browser. It doesn't offer the best call quality, but budget-minded users with a hankering for something simple may be willing to overlook this drawback.
