    Samsung r560 is a very decent looking phone. The features are very attractive. The call quality is very satisfying. The keyboard is very comfortable, typing becomes quite easy. There is 2.0 mp camera in this phone and photo quality is very satisfying. Its good for messages, emails, mms and the price is also not very high. The video streaming is really bad.
