Samsung Seek

The Good The Samsung Seek has an appealing design with a touch screen and slide-out QWERTY keyboard. A subscription-based navigation app and multimedia features are a plus.

The Bad Its small touch screen is a little cramped and its slow connection speeds make Web browsing ponderous.

The Bottom Line The Samsung Seek's multimedia features make it a decent middle-of-the-road messaging phone, but an attractive monthly prepaid price tag and a new design for Boost Mobile earn it bonus points.

Samsung Seek

Having debuted on the Sprint network, the Samsung Seek is not a brand-new model, but its pairing of a touch screen with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard is a first for Boost Mobile. Samsung knows a thing or two about churning out midlevel messaging phones, and the Seek is definitely a compact, attractive little number.

With the exception of pricing, performance, and some of the preloaded apps, Boost Mobile's Seek is nearly identical to Sprint's version. We'll concentrate on those differences in this review, but for more details, consult our full review of the Samsung Seek for Sprint. You can pick up a Samsung Seek for $149.99 with Boost Mobile for a $50-per-month Unlimited Plan, and without an annual contract.
