Samsung SGH-T369 - black (T-Mobile)

The Good The Samsung SGH-T369 is an efficient little number with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard that's roomy even while compact. There's also a 1.3-megapixel camera with a camcorder, a music player, and 16GB expandable memory.

The Bad The keys on the T369's alphanumeric dialpad are overly narrow, and there's no dedicated headset jack to complement the music player. The miscoSD card is inconveniently located behind the back cover.

The Bottom Line There are more goodies than you'd expect for a basic feature phone like the Samsung T369, though none of them is particularly advanced and the handset has some design flaws.

Samsung SGH-T369 - black (T-Mobile)

Although new smartphones are raining down every day for major carriers, the prepaid market is one of the fastest-growing segments in the mobile handset industry, and feature phones like the Samsung SGH-T369 for T-Mobile make up the bulk. You could do a lot worse than the T369, too. It has a compact design and a sturdy sliding mechanism on the slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It also packs in more hardware goodies than the simple shape and stock black color would suggest. By this we mean the camcorder, the music player, and the microSD card slot, of course.

Yet, there are also some forehead-smacking design flaws. The shared Micro-USB charging port/headphone jack is a no-no in our book, and we've gone blue in the face stating our preference for expandable memory slots to live anywhere but behind the back cover, where the T369's microSD card slot is located.
