5 out of 5 eggsBlu Samba JR Camera Green Unlocked Dual SIM Cell Phone

Pros: 1: Value
2: Features
3: Clarity
4: Accessories
5: Compatibility
6: Size / Ergonomics

Cons: 1: Instruction Manual
2: Very Small Key Format

Other Thoughts: I love this phone! I read plenty of reviews from other customers knocking the Blu Samba Jr model, but, eventually, bought one anyway and have been very happy with that decision. This is a basic phone with some value added features. If you are looking, or wanting, a smart phone you will be disappointed. If you need a basic multi-band 2G phone with some added features the Samba Jr. should fit the bill. I love the basic (mp3) audio player and even the (very) basic (lo-res, postage stamp) camera & video functions. This device when equipped with a compatible SDHC flash card will also serve as a storage device. It's pretty much plug & play, which is good because the instruction manual is very poor. The keys and numbers are very small type and can be hard to read. Fortunately, the bright back-light makes reading them easier. The phone has survived without a problem several waist high drops onto a hard surface. I get about three days of standby from the battery. Using the multimedia functions reduces that battery life by about half. The phone has been very reliable and compatible with the 2 T-Mobile sims I am using. Overall, I think the Blu Samba Jr is an excellent value for 2G users and is a much better option at the twenty-plus range than most box phones from local retailers. I would buy this phone (when on sale) again.

3 out of 5 eggsNot bad at a good price

Pros: Holds two sim cards
Sensitivity good
Ringer loud
Size is handy
QWERTY keyboard
Fakebook, Yahoo, and Twitter apps

Cons: Display resolution not very good
Browser pretty worthless
Manual is bad news
Info hard to find
QWERTY keyboards stink
Menu and apps not worth much
NO bluetooth.
No mail tool
Facebook, Yahoo, and Twitter apps are very limited. For example, one cannot add a feed if you want to follow a new Twit. Yahoo good only for IM usage and who knows what good fakebook is?

Other Thoughts: Very interesting seeing two signal bar displays. This little beast receives for both signals simultaneously and rings for both of them. I put one on AT&T and one on T-mobile. No obvious way to load phone book other than the hard way. I suppose it probably uses numbers if they are already in SIM card. It allows you to save to either SIM or to the phone itself. When you goto place a call or send a text, you select which SIM you want. That takes an extra step but it is straight forward.

With no bluetooth and no mail tool, I consider this phone usable only for light / emergency voice usage. Certainly it can be used for SMS if you can stand the keyboard. Then with the internet stuff being useless, it is pretty limited. For my application of a couple of light use prepaid accounts it seems to be just about right. You can cover multiple carriers as if you had a tracfone. If the MIR happens I will be contented.

3 out of 5 eggsVery usable phone with a few short-comings

Pros: - Very affordable
- Easy to setup and easy to use
- Very good battery life
- Has QWERTY keyboard

Cons: - User manual is not complete
- No quick key to lock keyboard
- Camera is very slow and poor quality pictures
- Memory is so small, you can't send MMS pictures
- Memory is so small, you can only receive very low res pictures.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for my daughter to be able to call and text with our family T-Mobile plan. Setup was pretty quick and easy, but I was disappointed to see that MMS is almost unusable.

For $20-30, it does the job pretty well. The retail price ($70) is too high.
