Samsung Dart Review [T-Mobile]

 

What I've got here is one of the three newest members to the mid-range line of phones over on T-Mobile. The smallest and sleekest of them all and that is the Samsung Dart. While reading this review you might want to take into consideration this is a...

Again this is the Samsung Dart, a mid-range device from Samsung on T-Mobile USA and it is available right now. If you'd like to compare it to the other three devices coming from Samsung for T-Mobile we've reviewed the Exhibit 4G and unboxed the Gravity...

Samsung Dart T499 (T-Mobile)

 

Budget Android handsets are a great idea if you want to get started with Android but don't want to spend the big bucks on something like the HTC Sensation 4G or the T-Mobile G2X. T-Mobile's budget Android offerings currently consist of the LG Optimus T...

The Samsung Dart has a slim and compact design. It ships with Android 2.2, and the TouchWiz UI is easy to use. Features include GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, mobile hot-spot capabilities, and the ability to make calls over Wi-Fi. It's also very affordable

The Samsung Dart's screen is on the small side, with a rather poor resolution

The Samsung Dart is a decent entry-level phone for T-Mobile, but there are better options out there.

Samsung Dart SGH-T499 (T-Mobile)

 

The Dart is a quad-band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and dual-band HSDPA 7.2 (1700/2100 MHz) device with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. The Dart also works with T-Mobile's software-based Wi-Fi calling, which helps in areas with poor T-Mobile signal. Regardless,...

Lightweight. Good music playback

Poor voice quality. Sluggish. Buggy. Dim, ugly, low-res screen

The Samsung Dart's feature set would have been fine two years ago, but now there's virtually no reason to choose it over other phones in T-Mobile's lineup—even free ones.

Samsung Dart Review

 

Now that Samsung has permeated T-Mobile's lineup with a handful of mid and high-end Android smartphones, they're naturally going to place their attention on the lower end market to balance things out. Boasting an easy to swallow on-contract price of...

Samsung Dart Reviewed - Hitting a Bullseye or Missing the Mark?

 

The Samsung Dart is another entry into the not too heavily saturated entry level smartphone market. After the release of the Exhibit 4G and the Gravity Smart, the Dart is the third entry level smartphone from Samsung within a month. They're taking a...

Overall the Samsung Dart ranks in at 'Below Average' unfortunately. The uninspiring design, its lackluster display, the laggy operating system and the sub par features really make the Dart a bland and boring smartphone. The only big upside is that the...

Samsung Dart Review [T-Mobile]

 

What we've got here is one of three new efforts on the mid-range smartphone front coming straight outta Samsung. This is the Samsung Dart, the tiniest of the three, all three of these new devices of which we speak coming out on T-Mobile. The first...

Samsung Dart T499 – Entry-Level Android Phone

 

If you want to jump on the Android bandwagon, but arent ready to spend big bucks on expensive Android handsets like the T-Mobile G2X or the HTC Sensation, then there are plenty of budget Android phones available in the market. Some other budget Android...

I've had this phone for about two years, and i loved it for the longest time. Now I can't receive group messages (they just say downloading all the time). I have the same problem another reviewer had with sending texts and needing to power the phone on...

small size, easy to use

Horrid internal storage space, error messages when sending texts

Consumer review by: HighlyDISsatisfied (cnet.com)

"This is the worst phone I have ever owned."

 

Texting feature is awful - more than 50% of the time, I get a return text that says "failed" - I have to turn my phone off and on and try again, sometimes more than once for a single text to (FINALLY) go through. The service and storage are a joke - a...

You can (sometimes) make a phone call or send a text (if you're lucky and the phone gods happen to like you).

Please refer to my rant below.
