Excerpt: Man, have I been waiting for the Samsung Glyde. I have read about it on various gadget and mobile phone sites since March, 2008. Finally, it arrived and I am totally jazzed. It's not exactly what some of the tech pundits said it would be.
Summary: Touch-screen phones are all the rage these days, but many of them are little more than iPhone wannabes. That is not true of the Samsung Glyde, a nifty touch-screen smartphone that’s truly impressive.
Excerpt: Samsung Glyde is the stylish phone with a full QWERTY keyboard that slides out when is needed, and beautiful 2.8″ touch screen display. It is a phone, and also comes with a music player, camera (2MP), video, internet, navigator, QWERTY Keyboard, speaker phone and features voice commands.
Excerpt: The Samsung Glyde is a phone that has just about every feature you can think of integrated in. At first glance you see a 2.8″ screen. Once you turn the phone on, you realize that it’s actually a touch screen with tactile response.
Conclusion: We think the Glyde could be a solid phone if it had a more reliable touchscreen and a better Web browser (really, Verizon, it’s embarrassing); as it is, we give it borderline pass/fail grade.
Pros: Sliding mechanism and keyboard feel great; 2MP camera; GPS; good call quality
Cons: Unreliable touchscreen; web browser is very limited
Conclusion: Despite the numerous features and sleek appearance offered by the Glyde, we find it difficult to recommend the device based upon the countless problems we encountered while using the touchscreen interface.
Pros: Smaller and sleeker than the Voyager, Large 2.8” WQVGA display, HTML browser, QWERTY keyboard, 5 hours of talk time on a full battery, Can use 8GB microSDHC cards
Cons: Continuous problems when using the touchscreen, Reception is weak, Speakerphone causes distortion at high volumes, Camera flash range
Conclusion: Overall: The Samsung SCH-U940 is therefore ideal because of the trendy fashionable style that it has; along with the wonderful features that goes with it. Its slim sliding-screen feature makes it very light to carry around. You can also have fun taking shots and videos.
Pros: The most outstanding feature of the, Samsung SCH-U940, would be its video and music capabilities that you can easily format according to your taste. Aside from this, you can store up as many pictures and videos as you want since it has a microSD card expansion slot. This only means that memories ...
Cons: The biggest weakness of the Samsung SCH-U940 would be its dual band capability. This would mean that it's hard having this for travel purposes; especially if you will need roaming services. The usual now-a-days would be, triband or quadband capabilities, . This is because you are only limited to ...
