Samsung MyShot II SCH-R460 (Cricket)

Don't be confused by the change in carrier; the Samsung MyShot II (SCH-R460) is an update of the Samsung MyShot. You'll find it with Cricket Communications rather than MetroPCS, but it offers many of the same features in a slightly modified design. The changes aren't extensive--in fact, "update" may be too strong a word--but the MyShot II is different enough to stand on its own. Overall performance wasn't exceptional, but it's a solid addition to Cricket's lineup. You can get it for $79.99 with an online discount and a $50 mail-in rebate.

Design
The MyShot II shares a flip phone design with its predecessor, but that's where the similarities end. Where the MyShot was dull and minimalist, the MyShot II's maroon color and patterned hinge give it just a bit of style. At 3.7 inches by 1.8 inches by 0.7 inch and 3.4 ounces, the MyShot II is slightly taller and heavier then the MyShot, but it offers a comfortable feeling in the hand. The plastic shell isn't for the klutz, but the hinge has a sturdy construction.
