Product Review: Samsung Instinct HD smartphone, sold by Sprint

Sprint's Samsung Instinct HD touch-screen smartphone takes great photos and videos, but it'll drive a Facebook junkie crazy with a built-in app that's a little buggy.

The camera allows the user to control a few settings, like turning the flash on or off. The menu also has built-in apps for social networks and for popular sites, like CNN, Bloomberg and ESPN. Touch-screen keyboard has the option to respond to touch with a click and vibrate when a key is hit.

What irks me is that the selling point behind this phone is the ability to connect it to an HDTV to watch videos, but a HDMI cord doesn't even come in the box. Lame. Also, the Facebook app that comes installed on the phone is pretty glitchy -- it kept signing me off every few minutes and sometimes wouldn't let me sign on at all. Hopefully that's something that they can fix in a software update.
