Samsung Eternity II Review by Aaron
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.
Summary: The Samsung Eternity II is the replacement to the original Eternity.As we’ve seen before, the Eternity II is a watered down version of the original phone, yet it retains a somewhat high price tag.
Cons: Strong multimedia features, Nicely built device that feels comfortable in hand.
Conclusion: In a long list of touch screen feature phones on AT&T, the Samsung Eternity II stands out as one of the few phones that supports mobile digital TV (others include the Samsung Mythic , the Sharp FX and the LG VU Plus).
Pros: Has Mobile Digital TV and Video Share, good GPS services., Pro: Strong multimedia features, nicely built device that feels comfortable in hand.
Cons: Resistive touch screen takes more effort to use, specs no better than original Eternity., Con: Touch screen takes more effort to use, battery life could be better.
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
