The Samsung Instinct S30 offers a slick design, bigger external memory, and an attractive touch-screen interface. Features are respectable and the call quality is satisfactory.
The Samsung Instinct S30's video quality is erratic and it lacks Wi-Fi and camera editing options. In a disappointing move, Samsung and Sprint downgraded the EV-DO support.
The Samsung Instinct S30 has its good points, but Samsung and Sprint missed the opportunity to make a better device.

I have nothing against the seller, personally, so this review will be as unbiased as possible...
I have been using PDAs since my first Sharp electronic organizer I bought from Circuit City in Mission Viejo in 1988.
Since then, I have used most of them, Apple Newton, LG Phenom, Philips Velo 1, Hitachi HPW-200, Casio E10, Philips Nino 320, HP Jornada 680, Casio E100, HP Jornada 690, Casio E125, Ericsson R380, Treo 90, Dell Axim X5, Sony Clie NZ90, Palm Tungsten W, T-mobile MDA II, Imate PDA2K, Treo 680, Dell Axim X30i, Palm Tungsten T5, T-mobile SDA, Nokia 9500, Garmin Ique M5, Sony Ericsson P990, T-mobile Dash, Motorola Macau, Treo 680, Asus P527, Samsung Blackjack II and today I received my Franklin Ebookman E911.
I have had GTE, LA Cellular, AT&T, T-Mobile, Cingular, AT&T and now Cricket.
I have never bought an HTC phone, per se, as some of my phones above have been manufactured by HTC.
I got Cricket for my teen daughter as she blew up our AT&T bill with her texting.
I saw this auction for an HTC Diamond, flashed for Cricket.
The seller said it was a GSM/CDMA phone.
I know HTC makes phones that work with both and I figured this one would be great.
Use Cricket when in a dual-band area and switch to AT&T when in a tri-band area like Las Vegas.
I assume the seller is not familiar with this model; I doubt he our-right lied saying it works with both.
I found out, it doesn’t; it is just a CDMA phone.
I needed one that works with both, so I wouldn’t have to carry around two phones.
Now, it looks like I’ll have to.
In closing, don’t trust what a seller tells you; do your own homework as it will bite you in the butt later.
I had a old blackberry curve, which by todays standards, is a piece of junk; so i wanted better broadband/internet, but I am stuck in my stupid contract and cant get any discounts for months; of course retail on these phones is insane, so i went the ebay route; if you want to upgrade without paying a million dollars for something brand new, this is a good choice; i may have overpaid a bit (I paid 140 plus 10 shipping), but for around 100 to 125 -ish, its probably a good deal; the screen is pretty, the touchscreen responds well, albeit a little small, (and no QWERTY); I'm a PC guy so i like the interface and it was easy for me to pick up and go...
I would say speedwise (which is my biggest hot button)..if an Iphone (what i really want) is a 10, then this phone is about a 6; its got all the bells/whistles you need..if you can get if for under 130 i say pull the trigger, if not, maybe go with something newer and spend a few extra bucks
I'd like to say this device is "great", almost excellent as the interface runs smoothly and complements well with the programs it has. This phone has great features and I have no problems towards adapting to it all. On that note, it is great for lifestyle users, but for business use it can be troublesome. Reason being is that the battery life can drain quickly due to the multiple program usage along with the background lighting consuming the battery life. You must have your charger available after 20 hrs, but that's just a small compremise for me at least. Also, the keyboard is slightly difficult to use. You can solve the keyboard problem by installing SPB Keyboard, which allows a landscape keyboard to assist with texting or emails. Hands down, it's a "great phone", just not excellent.
Husband liked all the features on the phone. Layout of programs are easy to understand. Expecially since he is not computer savey. This phone is not for someone who uses all the time. The battery runs out too fast. Had to keep a charger at home and work.
The phone itself is very good just try not to add too much to the phone or the battery will die out faster. The battery does die quickly but I experienced this with my original phone already making this no new news to me. Besides that actual use of the phone is really good. Clear calls and responsive touch screen.
