-Hi, I'm Jessica Dolcourt with CNET taking a first look at the Samsung Factor for Boost Mobile.
This is your typical flip phone.
It looks really similar to a lot of the other Samsung flip phones.
It's actually really nice; comfortable to hold; very smooth.
Almost a little too smooth, I found it pretty slippery.
Inside, there's about a 2-inch screen here.
One of my problems with the screen though is that the resolution is really, really low.
It's a quarter QVGA, so that's a QQVGA display, and it
is kind of grainy and blurry that really does show.
So, that's pretty much a bummer.
But the navigation and the dial pad, on the other hand, are very comfortable to use and very responsive.
They're tactile and kind of rubbery-keyed.
So, it's really to get around the screen that is, in fact, a little bit blurry.
There is a VGA camera on board.
It kind of casts a bluish hue on things and the photos are grainy as well.
But, you know, it's there, and it works, and it'll get the point across.
Call quality on this phone is very
It was quite strong on speakerphone and also just in regular calling.
So, that's definitely a benefit.
The price is $50 off contract.
It's pretty good.
Like I said, this is a really basic phone.
Inside, you're just gonna have all of the basic texting features, things like a calculator and a calendar.
One bonus that Boost Mobile does add, in addition to the Web browser, is an e-mail app.
So, you can e-mail if you pay for data on that.
So, overall, this is really a basic phone, perfect for people who are just looking for straightforward communications and good
call quality that won't break the bank.
I'm Jessica Dolcourt.
