Samsung Eternity II Review by Aaron

phonedog.com
28 April 2015
  • Summary: The Samsung Eternity II is a decent device, but at $69.99 after mail-in rebates, it's quickly approaching the $99.99 smartphone price floor.  What's more, I didn't care for the resistive touch screen, and overall performance was a bit laggy.
  • Pros: Thin and light; long battery life.
  • Cons: Resistive screen isn't entirely accurate; suffers from occasional lag.

  • Conclusion: The Samsung Eternity II is a decent way to watch broadcast mobile TV, but it's not a very good phone, and AT&T's plan pricing makes it a tough sell.
  • Pros: Lightweight form factor. FLO TV is always fun (at extra cost).
  • Cons: Middling call quality. Slow UI. Monthly fees are too high. Too much bloatware.

  • Conclusion: The Samsung Eternity II isn’t a bad little phone, but it’s not a great one either. I don’t mean that really in a bad way, it’s just that it has it’s little quirks and there are things missing that I think should be in it.
  • Pros: Nice little phone, Decent battery life, Easy to use, Nice looking display
  • Cons: No wi-fi, Interface can be slow at times, Browser doesn’t auto-rotate, Camera could be better, AT&T junk installed
