The Good: This phone has five-way wireless support (IrDA, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, CDMA 1xRTT, and EV-DO); a speaker phone; a comfortable slide-out QWERTY thumb keyboard; includes 2 batteries; and great third-party software support. The phone also holds allot of music and photos with the included 1GB SD card.
The Bad: Unfortunately there are several flaws with this mobile phone. First of all, there is no support for using the phone as a modem with a laptop. Second Wi-Fi and phone can’t work simultaneously and Wi-Fi is a real power hog. Third, the phone lacks a camera.
The Bottom Line: Small, light, and powerful, the Samsung SCH-i730’s high-speed data support and built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi make it an excellent choice for those who have to stay connected at all times.
