Samsung Stunt SCH-r100 (MetroPCS)

Phones
[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 Hi. I am Jessica Dolcourt, Associate Editor at CNET. Today we're taking a first look at the Samsung Stunt SCH-r100. This is a new phone from MetroPCS. In the Stunt you get a really basic candy bar phone, with equally basic features. It's intended for making calls and sending texts but not for a lot of heavy web browsing or game playing. There's no camera and there's no music player, which is really typical for a phone of this caliber. On one spine there's the volume rocker and a cutout for looping through a charm; on the other spine is a 2.5 millimeter headphone jack. We'd usually call foul that it's not a standard 3.5 millimeter jack. But since there's no music player on this phone, the smaller size won't do any harm. There's also a micro-USB slot for the charger, which is fast becoming a new cell phone standard. The colors of the display aren't very saturated or crisp on the Stunt, but it's perfectly fine for navigating around and reading and writing text messages. The icon carousel makes it easy to get to important functions, like the WAP browser and the menu. The four-way directional pad is slightly raised with an okay button in the middle. There are soft keys on either side. While there is some horizontal separation between the keys, they're all in a single strip, so you won't be able to dial by feel. The slight upward curve of the keys makes it easy to text and dial. And there is backlighting on those keys, as well. Basic organizer tools are inside, including Bluetooth and messaging. There's a limited WAP browser, as we said. It includes a Google search bar and links to downloads and other news. There's also a speaker phone function and voice command. Call quality is decent, but there was some fuzz and distortion throughout our calls. Although this phone isn't going to wow you, it should get you through the day without any problems. The Stunt costs $39 from MetroPCS, without a contract. I'm Jessica Dolcourt, and this is the Samsung Stunt SCH-r100. ^M00:01:54 [ Music ]
