Aaron's Samsung Alias 2 SCH-U750 review

28 April 2015
  • Summary: We were very pleased with the Samsung Alias 2, and certainly consider it to be a worthy upgrade from the original. The E-Ink technology drastically improves the typing experience on the device thanks to the lack of clutter, and the increased key size makes it much easier to type messages.

Samsung Zeal Review

Bright Hub
20 May 2011
  • Summary: The Samsung Zeal is currently available on Verizon. The unique dual hinged design of the Samsung Zeal incorporates e-ink to create an innovative keyboard that changes depending on how you open the phone. Does this sound familiar? It may sound very similar to another phone released in 2009...

Samsung Zeal Review by Sydney

15 December 2010
  • Summary: In all, I was mildly pleased with the Zeal, but after considering that Samsung didn't do anything to update the phone, I was disappointed. As a consumer, I would not want to pay full-price for a phone that is essentially a year old.

Samsung Alias 2 (SCH-U750) Review

17 June 2009
  • Conclusion: The Alias 2’s E Ink keyboard is the cleverest input solution we’ve seen in quite some time. It solves nearly every problem and complaint anyone’s ever had with every other kind of keyboard, both touchscreen and physical, and creates unprecedented flexibility for navigation and control.
  • Pros: E Ink keyboard; dual-hinge clamshell design; large, bright 2.6-inch screen; long talk time and battery life
  • Cons: Clunky Web browser; no threaded messaging; soft focus photos, poor QCIF videos; low ringtone volume

Review: Samsung Alias 2

15 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Samsung’s Alias 2 is aptly named; it leads a double life. On one hand, it’s slick and cool, with a vibrant swivel screen and an E Ink keyboard that would make even a Kindle user slightly jealous.
  • Pros: E Ink keyboard morphs button layouts when switching from phone to messaging device. Voice quality is high. Battery life is nearly six hours. Reasonably priced.
  • Cons: The Dear Diary feel of the interface is at odds with anyone over 13. My Room Menu theme is embarrassing. Lack of dedicated buttons leave you hunting and pecking for even the most common tasks.

LAPTOP Magazine
2 June 2009
  • Summary: Priced at $79.99, the Alias 2 is in the same league as excellent clamshell devices such as the LG Chocolate 3 (which costs just $10 more), and other full QWERTY messaging devices such as the enV2 (which costs $10 less).
