Much like the iPhone, the Samsung Instinct features an expansive touch screen and a slim design.

Though the Instinct's touch screen is quite large, we felt it could be just a bit bigger. Below the display sit the three touch controls.

The camera shutter sits on the Instinct's right side, below the voice dialing button and the microSD card slot. The camera shutter also is used to pan through Web pages.

The Instinct's keyboard is easy to use but it might be cramped for some users.
