Unlike previous Sidekick models, the Sidekick 4G is made by Samsung. The handheld keeps a number of the characteristic stylings of the old model, such as the four navigation buttons and five-row keyboard. However, it also brings some new additions, such as a touch screen (3.5-inch WVGA display) and a front-facing camera for video calls.
In the hand, the smartphone feels lightweight. As a result, it doesn't feel quite as sturdy as previous models but overall, the handset feels pretty solid.
