Not a BlackBerry

It may look like a BlackBerry knock-off, but the Samsung Replenish is all Android.

Gingerbread upgrade

The handset was originally released for Sprint with Android 2.2 Froyo. This model thankfully ships with Gingerbread.

Tony, but not terrible

The smaller keyboard may seem cramped to some, but I was able to type, and appreciated that the keyboard is a convenient portrait, rather than landscape, orientation.

Back end

The back is pretty straightforward, holding the camera lens.

Side view

I appreciate the camera shutter button on the side of the phone.

Top view

The power button and 3.5-millimeter headset jack are in all the right spots.

Pocket test

Tall and relatively slim, the Replenish slides into taller pockets with ease.

Camera test

Outdoor pictures were nice, but indoor shots often turned out washed in blue or brown.
