Samsung DoubleTime Equals Double Disappointment

Mad4MobilePhones.com
30 September 2012
  • Summary: Overall opinion: The Samsung DoubleTime’s one redeeming factor is its low cost. For $49.99 US with a two-year contract, it’s a cheap mobile phone. Period. But all in all, your money might be better spent on another model. Sorry, Samsung, but that’s just how we see this one.

PC Magazine

Samsung DoubleTime Review by Sydney

  • Summary: I've been pleasantly surprised by a number of low-end and mid-range smartphones that offered performance that far exceeded my expectations for such a device. The DoubleTime is not one of those phones. Outside of its stellar QWERTY keyboard, there's nothing that convinces me that this is the phone you should go for, even if you are on a budget.

Samsung DoubleTime review

theverge.com
30 January 2012
  • Summary: In a smartphone race that’s become all about the latest and greatest, the fastest and most powerful, the Samsung DoubleTime is an odd phone to review. Its specs don’t say smartphone — it’s big and clunky, running Android 2.2 on an 800MHz Qualcomm processor, without much storage or added software — but its price ($49.99 with a contract plus a minimum $15 / month data plan) screams it. So what is the DoubleTime?
  • Pros: Solid battery life, Pretty good keyboard, Not much bloatware
  • Cons: Performance is akin to a three-year-old smartphone, Bad camera, Bulky, unattractive body

Samsung DoubleTime (AT&T)

CNET
25 January 2012
  • Summary: Those of you looking for a more unique, eye-catching design will appreciate the Samsung DoubleTime's petite hinging face with two screens and comfortable keyboard. However, the lower-end specs and outdated Android OS do the phone no favors.
  • Cons: The DoubleTime's biggest problem is that it runs Android 2.2 Froyo instead of the more current Gingerbread. Its more petite touch screen and pink accent colors won't appeal to everyone, and the camera quality is middling. You can only access the microSD by removing the battery.

Samsung DoubleTime – do the two displays and low price make it worth considering

Gadgetmania
1 December 2011
  • Conclusion: It’s not a phone that most tech-savvy people would want, but the simple and sturdy design and great keyboard would make it good for teens, kids or less tech-savvy family members in need of a new phone.
