Samsung Freeform II is a messaging centric device that comes with a decent set of communication capabilities and a full QWERTY keyboard. You have a good call quality, text and multimedia messaging, instant messaging and email with access to various web mail providers; however, you can also enter your own POP3/ IMAP accounts. Besides the personal email, the corporate email is also present via Outlook Web Access.
The 2.2 inches display is rather small and unimpressive; it delivers colorful images and a crisp text. Underneath it, you have a very spacious navigation array that is easy to manage and among the dedicated keys, you will find a dedicated speakerphone button, which we much appreciate.
The full QWERTY keyboard is rather cramped with tall keys that are brightly back lit; because the buttons are somewhat stiff when pressed the typing experience is not one of the best. The numbers are highlighted in a light gray and the space bar is larger than the other keys and placed in the middle of the keypad.
Freeform II has stereo Bluetooth, GPS (Metro Navigator), voice commands, MetroWeb browser and 2.5G speeds. You also have essential features, like: conference call capability, vibrate mode, 1000 contact phone book, world clock, calendar, stop watch, calculator, speakerphone and memo pad.
The multimedia department is rather skimp: it has a pretty basic music player, a 3.5 mm head set jack and a 1.3 megapixels camera. The picture quality is mediocre: the images are blurry, but the colors look natural.
