The Bottom Line Although the Samsung BlackJack II doesn't bring any revolutionary upgrades, there are a number of welcome additions, including GPS and better performance, to make it a worthy successor and a good-value smartphone. The Samsung SGH-A187 has all the necessities of a text messaging phone. Although the occasional keyboard inconsistencies are frustrating, it's a solid choice for a good price. The Sony Xperia TL is a fantastic value and Sony's best U.S. smartphone yet. The Samsung Solstice offers a touch screen and multimedia features, but its performance isn't the best.
