Samsung Hue II SCH-R600 (Alltel)

Though Alltel's Samsung Hue II is an update to the original Samsung Hue, the two phones share few characteristics beyond their flip designs. While the first Hue had a vertical external display with red bands on either side, the Hue II features a standard external display with dedicated music controls. The design change made no difference to us, but we liked the higher resolution camera and the improved navigation controls. Call quality was decent, though that may change following Alltel's merger with Verizon Wireless. The Hue II is just $19.99 with a service plan and a $50 mail-in rebate, but it will cost you as much as $239 if you pay full price.

Design
The Hue II has a fairly standard flip phone design. It's not quite as boxy as the original Hue, but it's a bit bigger and heavier at 3.8 inches tall by 1.9 inches wide by 0.7 inch deep and weighing 3.4 ounces. Even with the added girth, it slips comfortably into a pocket and has a solid feeling in the hand. Yet, we couldn't help but notice that the hinge feels rather loose. The blue faceplate and battery cover are removable, though the replaceable gray plates that come in the box are pretty boring.
