Pocket-size

With its 2.4-inch screen and sub-5-inch height, it's considered a smaller phone by today's standards.

Keyboard close-up

Samsung did a nice job making the Freeform 5's buttons round, grippable, and fully separated. Despite that, the QWERTY's squeezed-in layout will simply be too closed in for some people's comfort.

Portrait-maker

More room

A microSD card slot on the spine accepts cards with capacities up to 32GB.

Customization

You can change the wallpaper, backlight, and font size on the Freeform 5, but beyond the essentials, Samsung keeps this handset pretty simple.
