My Samsung HUE is the best cell phone I have had yet!!! It allows me to take many high quality pictures when I am not able to carry my digital camera around with me, or when the moment arises that I don't have access to a camera because its a spur of the moment cute picture, my phone is always right there in my pocket!!

The Samsung Hue has a huge memory, which allows me to save all my phone numbers, email addresses and notes and alarms all very neatly organized and right there in a small enough size to slip into my pocket or purse!! I have noticed that the inbox and outbox for my text messages allows me to hold at least one hundred messages in each one, which is nice so I can go back and re-read the messages in case I need the info at a later date!!

 My all time favorite feature is the color scheme setting where you can set the color to be random when you open and close your phone the time and date and back ground light are a new color each time!!

I have not had any issues with reception since I have gotten the phone over a year ago. It has been a reliable cell phone which is good for me  because I don't even have a home phone anymore, I use my cell phone for both!!

I have really enoyed my service with alltel and all three of my phones from them.Alltel recently merged with verizon wireless and ever since i have had problems with my phone.I also have  had service issue.This phone battery cannot be purchased any longer at alltel or verizon stores.I would have to upgrade my phone to verizon and no longer be qualified for my plan under alltel.I do not want that.I like my plan, but the phone is alittle to heavy and sometimes it just shuts off for no reason.Again i cant replace the battery.The contacts and pics cannot transfer so im stuck with the phone unless i want to buy a new one with verizon without the plan i have currently.I feel this phone could have been improved and probably has been butunder another plan.If  i would have been able to keep service i mite consider the update but i cant keep my plan or get battery for this phone so i being forced out of my plan because i cant update this phone.

Best cell phone we have had

By 

from Sears, MI

Comments about Samsung - hue Cell Phone:

This is the very best cell phone we have ever had. We have bought 4 of them(2 each) and loved them each time. We only bought the 2nd set because our contract was up. After about a month after our last upgrade we went back to the samsung hue. We liked it that much. We have never had a problem with dropped calls, which is impressive in the area we live. It gets the best signal of every phone we have owned. Its very thin so it fits right into your pocket. The flip syle so you don't have any pocket dialing. Lots of possible covers to purchase and it comes with two options when you buy it, red or blue. The phone battery lasts for a couple days with moderate use which is good for weekends away. This cell phone is great for all ages of people. Easy for young people and older people to learn on. The camera takes really good clear pictures. Not a phone for someone who texts a lot as its a little more work because you don't have the full keyboard.

The Samsung Hue is Extremely Durable!!!

By 

from Valparaiso, IN

Comments about Samsung - hue Cell Phone:

I am very rough on phones, and have been known to go through more than five during a two year contract period.  When I got my last phone, it was a Hue.  I had this phone for two and a half years without breaking it.  i have thrown this phone on the ground, dropped it had it fall apart, and there is no real damage to the phone.  The only bad part to this phone is that after the two year mark it did choose when it wanted to vibrate and sometimes the vibrate would work and sometimes it wouldn't.  however, I loved the T9 word function for texting as it allows you to choose other words, an option not available on most phones with their T9.  if you are looking for a good texting flip phone without a full keyboard.  The problems with ring tones are mostly caused by carriers not by the phone, as i loved all of the sounds and ringtones I put on my phone and the quality was good for that.  I did wish it had a normal headphone jack because it does have an MP3 player on it.

Great cell phone

By 

from Norman Park, GA

Comments about Samsung - hue Cell Phone:

I absolutely love this phone!  It worked great for me; unfortunately, it was an Alltel phone and it sort of died after Verizon took over.  I need to get it activated again.  I love the quality that it gave me: great camera, text, and it sounded like the people I called were in the same room.  It's a little pricey, but there are times when you have to pay a little extra to get 100% quality.

It is ok for a starter phone

By 

from Falls City, NE

Comments about Samsung - hue Cell Phone:

The Samsung Hue is a good phone to start out with. It has alot of capabilites. It has a camera as well as mp3 capabilities. It does have some issues though. Sometimes it shuts off without warning and restarts itself. It also has a temdency to lose battery life really fast, especially if you plug it in before it dies all the way.  It does have bluetooth capabilities but it is not compatible with every phone to use the bluetooth. Over all it does work well and it lasts longer then some other phones that I have purchased. If I had to get it again I would.

Samsung Hue is a great phone !

By 

from Poplarville, MS

Comments about Samsung - hue Cell Phone:

 The Samsung Hue is an attractive phone has great call quality, and has a good feature selection. The Samsung Hue is a stylish and functional cell phone  with a useful selection of features I enjoy using the Samsung Hue"s camera and video recorder The Samsung Hue"s camera and video recorder could be a little better..The Samsung Hue comes with two faceplate's a red and blue.The Samsung Hue has bluetooth and it is very easy to use.The phone book will hold 500 names & numbers, I will never fill it up ! The battery life is about 190 min when using the camera and digital player.I use the Samsung Hue"s alarm clock, calendar and calculator all the time .They come in handy.  The speaker phone does come in handy win you are driving and the sound quality is very good.Over all I think the Samsung Hue is well worth the money and will bring you enjoyment for a long time.I hope this review is helpful.

Hue is a pretty good phone

By 

from Eden, GA

Comments about Samsung - hue Cell Phone:

I thought the samsung hue would be a much better phone than it has turned out to be. I have had many problems with it shutting off and not ringing. I do like the size and most of the functions however the texting is not as easy as i would have liked but i manage. At the time I thought I was getting the most up to date phone they had however i was wrong. I like the hue it just has not turned otut o be what i thought it was.I will be upgrading my phone as soon as my plan will allow as well as all the phones on my plan. I am very happy with the phone overall but it does have a few bugs they need to work out. Noone at the store can tell me why my phone powers off by itself and why it will not ring sometimes they it must be the phone. So with that said needless to say i will not be buying another hue and probably not a samsung at all.
