Samsung Glyde SCH-U940 (Verizon Wireless)

11 February 2009
  • Summary: The Samsung Glyde is a powerful cell phone with decent performance, but its touch-screen design and controls don't complement its features.
  • Pros: The Samsung Glyde offers great call quality, a broad selection of features, and a full alphabetic keyboard.
  • Cons: The Samsung Glyde's display is too small to do its touch interface justice. Also, the photo quality is poor, and the e-mail support isn't easy to use.

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: This latest text-centric phone for Verizon is fine for those who prefer their keyboards sliding rather than flipping. Its touch screen could be more responsive, though.
  • Pros: Narrow body. Full Web browser. Good QWERTY keyboard.
  • Cons: Somewhat quirky touch screen. No way to sync with PCs. Limited e-mail and IM.

Samsung Glyde SCH-u940 Review

17 June 2008
  • 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. We look forward to Samsung’s Instinct , which will include hot features like Visual Voicemail, and we pray they did a better job with the touchscreen.
  • Pros: Sliding mechanism and keyboard feel great; 2MP camera; GPS; good call quality
  • Cons: Unreliable touchscreen; web browser is very limited

Samsung Glyde Review

Phone Arena
22 May 2008
  • 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. At this point, we honestly cannot see the Glyde used as someone’s primary phone, not only due to those issues, but also due to its poor signal reception.
  • 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

Samsung SCH-U940

Cell Phone Reviews by Cellphonedia
20 May 2008
  • 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. This is especially because you can take advantage of its formatting capabilities also. You can also compose text messages easily because of its predictive text feature.
  • 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 are not that hard to store up with the Samsung SCH-U940. Another good thing would be its voice call feature that lets you view the person you are talking to. This would go wit...
  • 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 a number of countries you can use this in. If you are a frequent traveler, this is not advisable for you. You are better off with the ones that have triband and quadband featu...

Samsung Glyde

12 May 2008
  • Conclusion: Samsung makes excellent phones with a wide variety of features and capabilities. Unfortunately, the Samsung Glyde needs a little work before we can recommend it heartily. The small size combined with a haptic touch screen and QWERTY keyboard is great, and the screen is easy to read despite the high resolution squeezed into a 2.8" panel.
