First Look: Samsung Hue II SCH-R600 (Alltel)

1:15 /

The Samsung Hue II is a very solid midrange cell phone for Alltel service.

[ Background Music ] >> Hi, Kent German, senior editor here at CNET.com. Today we're gonna take a first look at the Samsung Q2. This is also called the SCHR600. This is a new phone for all teleservice. This is an update to the original Samsung Hue. It looks a lot different though. This is a bit more traditional design. You see that this squares external display with a band of colors that goes around here and continues on the back. On the outside, I found the external display a little bit small. There is a mirrored face around here, catches a lot of finger prints, this is small issue though. This face plate and the back battery cover do come off. You can replace it with different colors. Inside, you can see a pretty nice display. It's very bright, vibrant colorful key pad and controls. They do show a lot of differences from the original Hue and that's a great thing with an easier dialing situation, texting as well. Navigation array is pretty spacious. Overall, the phone has decent array of features, has a music player, very basic, really, really, really basic but gets the job done for listening to music. Nice, solid midrange phone. Call quality was pretty good. [Background music] Battery life is promising. I'm Ken Sherman and this is the Samsung Q2, also called the SCHR600. ^M00:01:11 [ Music ]
