Bright Hub
9 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Will the Samsung Eternity 2 be a successful update to the outdated Samsung Eternity? Or will concessions made by AT&T and Samsung make this one device that you want to skip?

Samsung Eternity II SGH-A597 (AT&T)

PC Magazine
7 September 2010
  • 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.

Samsung Eternity II

MobileTechReview.com
29 August 2010
  • 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). From a specs stand point, the Samsung Mythic is more compelling than the Eternity II if you don’t need a QWERTY keyboard. Eternity users who have been waiting for an upgrade should wait or look elsewhere as the Eternity II isn’t the device for that.
  • 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.
