Samsung Transform

Transform's touch screen, which measures 3.5 inches and shows 16 million colors, supports widgets and app shortcuts. And as one of Sprint's first handsets to support the carrier's new Sprint ID feature, it also offers extensive customization.

At the bottom of the display are three touch controls for the phone dialer, the main menu and the Sprint ID feature. Other touch controls sit below the display while the VGA camera is in the top right corner.
