Samsung SCH-A950 Review

Equipped with an MP3 player, the A950 offers convenient music listening functionality through Previous, Play / Pause, Stop, and Next keys, giving users complete control of MP3 playing capabilities without having to ever open the phone. For more advanced functions, the A950 allows consumers to quickly scroll through their playlists with just a few spins of an innovative scroll wheel, reminiscent of the iPod.

Above the external display, the lens to a 1.3-megapixel camera and camcorder with built-in flash is activated by pressing the Camera Key on the left side. Located below the Camera Key, an expansion slot is incorporated for extra memory through TransFlash cards. While the right side contains a headset jack and volume keys to adjust earpiece and tone volumes during calls and standby.

Through the dual stereo speakers on the ends of the hinge, users are able to experience enhanced sound quality - from ring tones to music / video playback to conversations via speakerphone.

Flipped open, the main 262K-color LCD is revealed, able to display images at up to 176 x 220 px in size. Standard 5-way navigational and numeric keypads provide fairly sizable for comfortable typing through T9 predictive text.

Out of the box, the Samsung SCH-A950 comes with a standard 1000 mAh Li-Ion battery, AC adapter, and user manual.
