RATING



5.8/10
Informr score
The Samsung Restore M570 currently has an Informr score of 5.8 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 3 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

The "1-Minute" Review

Capitalizing on the “Go Green” movement, the Samsung Restore M570 attempts to do its part to improve the environment via 84% recyclable components, 100% recyclable packaging, which is printed with soy ink, an online-only user manual, energy-efficient charger, yadda, yadda, yadda. Symbolic more than impactful, such efforts nonetheless appeal to a large segment of the market.

But how’s the phone? The Samsung Restore features a side-sliding, full QWERTY keyboard, Stereo Bluetooth, 2MP camera with video record, expandable memory via microSD and an assortment of basic applications that help to round out this eco-frenzied phone.

Users will enjoy the spacious, 2.6 inch 240 x 320 pixel resolution display, which is easy on the eyes and large enough to compete with other phones in its category.

Additional features include a music player, 2.5mm jack, email capability, GPS and a variety of voice-activated commands.

The Samsung Restore is a decent phone that holds a tenuous position in a pregnant portion of a popular phone category, but a worthy contender nonetheless. Unless you’re allergic to soy ink.

An inexpensive messaging device for Sprint that offers the tree hugger

The Restore is a sideways slider and is somewhat bulky. The hardware is mostly good. The full QWERTY keyboard, for example, works really well, but the trackpad is a little overly sensitive.

One Click is a decent feature phone operating system, though we'd like to see it evolve a bit. It has seen only the most incremental of updates in the last two years.

The Restore offers only the most rudimentary social networking features, and lacks IM. Threaded SMS is present, as is support for a number of different email providers.

The camera and video software are simplistic, and the 2 megapixel shooter delivers only average results. The music player is simply not up to par and fails to equal many other entry level feature phones out there.

It suffers from call quality issues, which is the major drawback of the device, but at least its eco-friendliness makes up for it.  If you’re looking to upgrade from a similar device, the Restore doesn’t offer anything new, but if you’re looking for something more than just a low-end phone, or you want an affordable QWERTY slider, the Restore is an option worth considering.

Pro: soft keyboard, good battery. Con: No camera zoom, no IM messenger, phone won't shut off all the way, can't open up back door without battery falling out, freezing, randomly calls people Using experience: 2 months This phone is such a downgrade. After my LG Lotus unexpectedly breaking, I had a day and a half to lok for a new phone. This phone is so bad, the camera pisses me off the most. you can't even zoom in and I don't even know which way the photos are saved because no matter which way I take them (horizontal or vertical) it's the opposite way of what I want it. No AOL/MSN/Yahoo! client...the hell? All the other Sprint phones have it. I can't open up the battery cover to take the SD card out without the battery popping out. I can't even shut my phone off completely. It has a little part of a leaf and the screen is illuminated for hours, doesn't even dim. Vibration is too strong, I can't even change the rhythm like you can with other Sprint phones. It freezes a lot which is a concern for me, my Lotus froze and that's how it broke. It randomly calls people too. I hate this because I have numbers of coworkers that I don't contact unless it's an emergency. This is also a concern. As soon as I see another Sprint phone up on the Website that I want, I'll buy it. I'll even get it full price because that's how bad I want to replace this phone. Less
