Best camera phone I have found thus far!!!
I bought this phone because of the 8.0mp camera that it has on it. I was looking for a simple phone that was easy to use, had a good camera, and wasn't going to cost me an arm and a leg. It holds its signal well, is very easy to use, and the camera performs almost as well as my digital camera. I highly recommend this phone to anyone who is looking for a phone that isn't quite a smartphone but still has data connection. And if you like to take photos this is definitely the phone for you. The only gripe that I have about this product is that the Xenon Flash does drain quite a bit of juice. But it makes up for it in quality. This is truly a CAMERA phone

The Samsung Memoir is a really nice phone.
I previously owned the Samsung Highlight and the features of that phone and the Memoir are pretty much the same, with only a few extra features on this phone. The camera on the Memoir for one thing is by far the best camera on a phone i've ever seen! It's awesome, I love it! When people view the pictures i've taken online they all think they were taken with a digital camera! This phone is durable and works like it should. The battery life is not that great though after taking a few pictures, but this phone suits me just fine.:)

Great phone but limited internet accessibility.
Excellent camera, and this would be an awesome phone, but the touch screen is very sensitive, so somone with average size fingers spends alot more time correcting text messages than actually communicating. The Facebook app is average as far as ease of use navigating through the app, but again the touch screen seems like maybe it's more geared for smaller fingertips. The accessibility of varied apps seems a bit limited. This would be a good phone for a teenager that doesn't rely heavily on internet use such as ebay or amazon. Otherwise a teenager could have a lot of fun with the awesome camera.

its not quite perfect...
my first "smart phone" was the samsung behold t919. it did not have wi-fi just like the memoir doesn't. most of the features and functions are exactly the same as the t919 behold as most of the samsung lineup work about the same way. i was disappointed to find that this phone still does have the ability to change the default txt style from T9 to just regular typing. also let down to find you do not have control to turn off the "send to" option after taking a picture. you still can not turn off the camera click when taking a picture. the return button between the send and end buttons did not look as good as the t919, but that's a subjective point of view from me. most of the functions remain unchanged from the t919 but the t929 adds a search feature by typing instead of using the tft to scroll which can be a little bit hard to get accurately. this is the phone that allowed me to combine my mp3 player, high mega pixel digi cam, and cellular phone. it has 8mp digital camera that takes very good pictures. i had to get a 3.5 jack converter to use this as a mp3 player in my car due to samsung's proprietary audio/charger jack. this means that i can't charge the phone and use the mp3 from the jack as it doesn't have a standard 3.5 audio output jack. all in all, this is a great phone. it is handsome looking, great feature packed digital camera with xenon flash. made with excellent craftmanship in a small slim package. it still needs some refinement to be considered world class. its not quite perfect which leaves room for improvement.

Excellent phone, excellent camera...with a few quirks.
I bought my Memoir in June, '09...shortly after it was released. After using it for 2 years, I am very pleased with it overall. The call quality is excellent, the camera is top-notch, and the internet browser is quick and easy to use...especially after you set a few bookmarks. But the phone does have a few minor quirks that I have noticed in my time with it. --If you are using any kind of plastic case on the phone, it can crowd the virtual keyboard a bit. This can make it tricky to text until you get used to it. --If you want to change your SMS tone (for text messages) from one that is not pre-loaded, you will need to use a tone that is longer than about 10 seconds. Both the Memoir and Behold have an issue with SMS tone volume. The volume seems to build from quiet to loud as the tone progresses...and a short tone will be so quiet as to be difficult to hear. A longer tone will solve this, as will using one of the pre-loaded short SMS tones. --When using the camera, you can set whether the pics go to the camera memory or the card memory. But it does not stay where you set it. Every now and then, the phone will switch from the card memory to the phone memory, making you manually change it back. --Text messages cannot be saved to the memory card, and there is no auto-delete feature. So every now and then, it is necessary to manually delete your text message inbox. --No 3.5mm headphone jack. Not a big deal. --TeleNav, at least through T-Mobile, is very slow to load. Works well, though. --The phone has lots of very useful tools and shortcuts, called "Widgets". They can be selected from a pop-out menu on the side of the screen at any time. You can choose which Widgets are on the pop-out menu from the settings menu. There's a calculator, but for some reason they did not make it a widget. It must be selected from the applications menu. Annoying... --I find the layout of the virtual keyboard for text messaging a little annoying. There is a giant T9 key down by the space bar. This in and of itself isn't a big deal, but the fact that many commonly used punctuation marks (like the exclamation point) had to be moved to a separate toggle screen to make room for it IS a big deal. I have no real use for T9. It would be nice if the T9 button was on the toggle screen, and they had kept those commonly used punctuation marks on the main screen. If you want to use a smiley [:)] you have to toggle to the numbers screen for the [:] and then to ANOTHER screen for the [)]. Annoying. --I only really had one problem with the Memoir in terms of reliability. Apparently, this model had a problem with "ghost memory". As things are added and deleted from the memory, the phone still thinks the memory has been allocated even if it is empty. This means that even though your phone's memory will be as empty as you can make it (you have deleted EVERYTHING), the phone will still say the memory is full. It took me a while to figure this out. I found out online that this is a common problem, and going into the settings menu and doing an "All Reset" (resetting the phone to it's out-of-box configuration) will solve the problem. These problems are all VERY minor. Overall, the phone is excellent, and two years in I have no plans to upgrade it. In modern times, that is the greatest compliment a cellphone can get..."I'm not upgrading." A new Memoir is less than $150 in 2011, and a steal at that price. Buy one...you'll love it.
