We've been toying around with the Highlight this week in its "fire" livery, and we've got to say: for its entry-level aspirations, we're really impressed. The TouchWiz UI is plenty speedy, the browser was about as good as you could expect a Samsung dumbphone browser to be, we had an easy time adapting to the landscape QWERTY keyboard (and the numeric one, for that matter), and -- this is a biggie -- the screen felt really good. Historically, some of Sammy's full touch phones have had a reputation for having really bendy plastic screen -- and yes, granted, this is clearly still plastic, but it's thick and / or strong enough so that there's virtually no give to it. That definitely makes you feel more confident using the phone, and gives it a vaguely upmarket appeal. Do we recommend it? If you're looking for a relatively cheap way to get on T-Mobile's 3G network, yeah, absolutely, though we might wait until they get their pricing strategy figured out -- it's clearly a lower-end device than the Behold and it needs to be priced accordingly. If T-Mobile can manage to get it down to, say, $79.99, it's an all-around winner.
