With the Samsung Hue R500, we have had one for approx two months prior to writing this Guide(in March 2008). We have been pretty impressed so far. Its the perfect size, offers good reception and sound, is BlueTooth Compatible, GPS Capable, offers a Digital Camera, and EASILY connects as a modem to the internet, to run your laptop as wireless internet from ANYWHERE.
The Pros outweigh the Cons. The Cons include: no Sync software was included from the manufacturer(and is currently pricey online), cannot transfer pics and such to your laptop without purchasing higher-dollar Sync software(which ranges anywhere from $40.00 online/eBay, to $79.99 from your provider), the camera doesnt offer a flash of any kind which makes picture taking much more difficult and the camera needs time to "focus" before pictures can be captured, it doesnt save very many text messages(at all)/programs/etc even with the optional memory card. As for Syncing to your computer/transferring data/pics, simply purchasing a Data-Cable WILL NOT do. We have tried everything, and even installed/tried many different drivers, and one last thing is that it only comes with two different colored faceplates from the manufacturer(even though the box shows four). Keep in mind when using this as a Modem, that the time used may calculate as MINUTES from your provider, unless your have them list it as a SmartPhone on a Data Plan. One other CON is that it is a standard phone, without Windows Mobile, so the program/setting options are limited.
The Pros: Good sound and reception, good sized display screens, can EASILY act as a Modem for your laptop via USB and a data cable, the modem software is eaily accessible online and the modem works almost flawlessly without much interuption(can be added to any SmartPhone account via your provider), the faceplates/accessories are currently commonly available online/eBay at GREAT PRICES, the Car Charger can currently be found in most stores/gas stations for as little as $4.99. If you're currently on a Data Plan, purchase this phone and have a data cable, you can use it as a modem and have your laptop/home PC on the internet within minutes. You'll need a Data Plan with your provider to run wireless internet, or have the Hue added onto an existing DataPlan/SmartPhone account. Even though it is "not" a SmartPhone, our provider(Alltel) had to program our Cellular Account to reflect it as one in order for the internet to be unlimited, without using plan minutes. As for accessories, there are currently 1000's of choices to pick from in regards to faceplate colors/designs.
Overall, we've been happy with our Hue. The camera not having a flash is probably one of the biggest faults that we can find with it. Other than that, it works great, and allows us to use another laptop anywhere we want, be it on the road or around the house. For the money, WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT!

Guide Written 3/21
This phone is REALLY awesome and I've ALWAYS enjoyed it, I am replacing it later today with an LG VX8700 since i always like that phone. I use a droid too, and i keep this. It seems as a good phone for heavy texting teens. Keybosrd isn't cramped, or too big, just right. Camera also seems to be good as well. The screen has good graphics, but when I receive picture messages when opened the phone the picture gets little, when closed stays that size. I used this for the web right before I purchased the droid,. and it wasn't that bad of a web browser. Has a good look to it. DOESN'T use 3G but it is still fast on 1X technology.
What I also don't understand is that my DROID failed to get signal where I live, completely lost any internet signal at all, and the INTENSITY still connects with one x and flies. i don't have any complaints on the intensity's side there, but COMEON, it's a FREE phone, and the droid costs, and it had 3G SINGAL not available. But basically as i understand it, it is the lack of the towers in my area, nothing I can blame on droid.
The phone has another con is that it lacks video. Everyone video messages mostly now, and the 8700 I am choosing from 2007 even has this. This phone is from 2010, and lacks the videoing option. I am amazed that they never included this on either INTENSITY,450'460 (the two models)
I really like the blue color. It doesn't seem that bad of a color choice, i really like that color. But another thing again I have a con on is that there is an automatic key guard i had to disable that because nearly every time I had to get rid of a picture message (meaning view) i'd hit ok, and then it'd say KEYPAD LOCK ON, I mean, It's not like I was butt-dialing or anything :P that this'd be useful for. There s a two step keypad unlock, so i guess 1 pro is that less butt-dialing. I had that a lot with past phones.
Overall this get's a good rating- and with VZW coverage, you just CANNOT go wrong.
My first observation is the solid feel, the metallic skin certainly adds to this. It's well balanced in the hand, open and closed, and the hinge feels solid.
The buttons are RAZR-esque, however, the Samsung Hue has somewhat greater tactical distance upon depression - so you actually feel like you like pushing a button.
I am adjusting to the Samsung interface. My last Samsung was a Samsung X-427, about four years ago. A few quirks, but nothing to complain about.
Not as grainy as I had predicted. It lacks a flash, but does well in low-light nonetheless.
I wish manufacturers would get away from mirrors near camera lenses, they've been made too small to be useful, as if they ever really were useful, you know?
Web-browsing is quick and this is my first experience with Alltel's Cell Top. After deleting a number of useless Cell Top 'Cells' (think Vista gadgets or OS X widgets), I warmed up to it. Beware downloading the upgraded Celltop application, it will reset all of your Cell settings.
Solid, balanced feel
Excellent call quality and very good speakerphone
Quick web browsing and Cell Top turns out to be handy
Fair camera quality
Customizable face and battery plates
LED outside panel actually turns out to be pretty sleek
As far as I've been able to tell, it's impossible to configure what the directional pad keys do at the main screen. I would prefer that down take me to my contacts, it's an old habit.
You have to go into message settings to specify you want T9 as the default for composing messages.
I bought this phone from the cell phone company with a rebate offer. I really wanted a different phone, but I got this one on the suggestion from the cell phone sales person. I had doubts. But this phone has met my expections completely. I really like the small screen on the front of the phone that shows who is calling before you actually open the phone. The small screen also shows the time with out having to open; this feature is also great. It gets pretty good signal. I have only had a few problems getting a signal when in big grocery stores or in a factory. The picture feature works good. For the most part I get good pictures for a cell phone. But there is no flash for the pictures, so you have to make sure the lighting in the room is right.
However, this phone only has the 10 digit key pad. So if you are into texting a lot, it can take some time. I text often, but only keep it to short messages, due to not having a full key pad for texting.
I will tell you to becarefull around moist, damp, or wet places. My husband was riding his motorcycle in a rain storm, and left the phone in one of the puches in the bike. Eventhough, it did not get wet, the moisture in the air damaged the phone. When we sent it back to the company, they said it had water damage. That would be the only caustion I would have.
Overall, I really like the phone. I have not had any problems. I have even dropped it a few times, and it still works good.
Hope this review helps!!!! A great buy for my money.
My alltell hue cell phone fell out of my pocket and was ran over by my car.
The phone still worked but the screen did not. I still had about two years
left on the contract.I went to the alltell store and found out to replace the phone was aprox three hundred dollars. Not good news for a poor working guy with three kids in collage. My daughter told me to buy it on Ebay. So being a good dad who does what he is told I did. Now I was a little nervous doing busness with people I dont know. But my daughter told me to relax so I did.
I orderd the phone at an exalent value over retail. I thought that the phone would be a used phone in the classic sence (no not run over by a smaller car but you know what I mean) boy was i suprised. I had the phone in less that a week after I orderd It and the thing looked brand new and worked like a champ! I then went to the alltell store and had the phone acctavated and they even put the information from my old phone to the new one all for no charge. I would do busness with these folks every day of the week. umm well hopefully I wont need to! But I would like to thank them for the great service just in case I do.
Respectfuly Doug Hansen
