Samsung Highnote reviews:

The Samsung Highnote is a good music phone with access to Sprint’s Music store that sells songs for $.99 each. The loud speakers are great for music playback either on the road or at your desk (assuming you won’t derange others around you). The audio is a bit tinny through the built-in speakers, wired headset and via Bluetooth stereo headset. The Samsung Highnote comes with a 3.5mm stereo headset that works well with the phone, and we tested Samsung’s own SBH-500 Bluetooth stereo headset with the Highnote and it sounded better than the phone’s speakers and better than the wired headset. Volume is loud via the wired headset but you can really pump up volume via the Bluetooth headset. The Highnote can store music on microSD cards and it comes with a 1GB card to get you started. We also tested SDHC high capacity cards which worked well with the phone.

Thanks to the EV-DO, the Samsung Highnote supports Sprint TV for streaming video, movie rentals and more. But the lower resolution screen (176 x 220 pixels as opposed to QVGA on other high end feature phones) and the video/movie playback performance hobble the experience. Video playback is very blocky and slow to refresh, and audio isn’t always in sync with video. Sprint has tons of channels and we like their streaming TV service, just not on the Highnote. Movies via Sprint TV movie rental services usually play better on most phones, and it does look better on the Samsung Highnote as well. Still it doesn’t look as good as on the LG Lotus.

Gaming is fun however, and there are a wide selection of games suited to the Highnote’s screen resolution and processor capabilities. The loud speakers are also great for gaming; music and sound effects sound great. Most games don’t support the touch control jog wheel, but that’s not a problem since the d-pad also responds to clicking.

Like the Samsung Rant and the LG Lotus, the Samsung Highnote has a built-in 2 megapixel camera. But still photos don’t look as good as those taken by the Rant or the Lotus. Outdoor shots are overexposed with whiteout, though colors look mostly balanced. Indoor shots have some white haze around subjects that reduces clarity and color saturation. Perhaps a software update might improve image quality.

The camera offers 4 resolutions, 3 quality levels and settings for white balance, color and more. The camera can also take video with audio. Video quality is actually not bad with smooth motion and good color saturation. Audio is also in sync with video.
