Samsung Freefrom 4 – A Handset Free From All Complex FeaturesCell Phone Reviews — By Naveen Vaidhya on July 7, 2012 at 10:57 am
Solid and lightweight, the Samsung Freeform 4 is not anything decorative. However it is very much convenient and friendly for texting fans as it has BlackBerry-esque QWERTY keyboard, which is a great feature of this handset.
But, due to its fewer specs, please do not assume it to wow you in other parts. Its 2-megapixel camera as usual takes bas photos, and its data speeds are slow as well. In all this handset is not made for those people who are seeking for high-end smartphone, but its sleek QWERTY keypad might impress you’re messaging fingers, and allow them to fly. As per its features quantity other things you can expect it in affordable price, you can get it in $160, however in case if you are ready for 2-year contract with United States Cellular, it will be free.
Samsung Freeform 4 has sober rounded corners, tapered bottom and top edges, and slim dark strip of chrome bordering the device. It is 4.38inches tall, width is 2.38, and it is 0.42inch thick. It is highly light, 2.4 ounces is its weight. Because of the small frame, I can type out messages, although slowly, with only 1 hand by using my thumb. It is very easy carry; you can simply put it in small clutch or purse, and its solidness sufficient to get fit to back or front pockets of your jeans.
On left side of phone, there is volume rocker, and also microSD card slot that is wrapped by small plastic piece, on top there is 3.5mm headphone jack, and if you see on the right side there is shortcut button for camera. Micro-USB port is placed on its bottom side.
It features a 2.4 inch TFT display that offers 320 x 240 pixel resolutions. Hence, its text and bright mixed crisply, the screen has thin viewing angle, and menu icons were ill definite. Colour gradients were stripy and the default wallpaper design were pixelated, and grainy.

It has very impressive call quality and signal quality. Audio doesn’t cut out and in. You can head clear and excellent voice, also on less volume. It has solid speaker audio. As expected, camera quality is very bad. You get very blurry, dull, and bad lighting images. Even video recording is not good in it. The moving objects get highly pixelated.
In case you are not expecting great camera and web-browsing experience then Samsung Freeform 4 is made for you. It does not only offer great calls, however its 4-low QWERTY keypad makes it a snap to type it. It is easy to carry; you need to take more care of this solid handset.
