J, London

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
As a WI FI phone this is fantastic; it saved me a lot of money on expensive calls when overseas. The sidebar on the opening screen is really handy too, helping you to get into your inbox or contacts really easily.
Bad points:
Samsung's menus take a lot of getting used to and sending a text can be quite time consuming. There's no radio which is a shame. Worst of all the screen scratched within a few weeks, but it's still a decent phone.
