Summary: This phone was horrible. The back of it is hard to get off to be able to access battery and the micro mini sd card. Within the first 2 weeks of use the keypad froze and I could only use the touch screen part. Then next week the battery went I could start with a full battery and after a 20 minute call the phone would be dead.
Summary: This is a great phone for someone who does not want or need a smart phone. It offers all the features which a user needs, less email and internet. Not everyone needs an Android or an iPhone. But in today's market there are fewer and fewer good phones available. Phones. Not smart phones. Just plain phones. I love this phone. I purchased it for my employee. It works great. Reception is crystal clear, it takes excellent photos, and slides open for texts.
Summary: I really like having a touch screen and a Qwerty keyboard on a device that is NOT a smart phone. It's kind of small, so I think it needs a case to keep from dropping it. I've found it easy to use, which is saying a lot for a "cell phone-aphobe".
Excerpt: I got the glyde about 4 months ago. For the first few weeks it worked fine.Then it started to glitch and the screen would get stuck. It also doesnt hold a lot of messages in your inbox or outbox. If you are going to buy a cellphone i do not recommend this one.The touch screen also gets stuck sometimes.
Excerpt: Good idea but terrible design. The touch screen is always changing form screen to screen with out touching anthing. The phone is such a pain to deal with. Selecting names form the address book is miserable to deal with. DON'T BUY. Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.
Excerpt: I love my samsung glyde, Theres so much you can do with it, GPS the internet, Chat with friends on aim or yahoo, LOVE THE KEYBOARD and the touch screen. But sometimes the touch screen acts up with the old version, Version 2.0 is alot better and more useable then the first version of the software, I love how you can download your own music, Makes so you dont have too cry an MP3 player with you and a phone, So thats pretty good, The games are pretty fun.
Excerpt: When I first got the Samsung Glyde, I thought it was amazing. However, after about 2 weeks, I regretted ever buying it. The touch screen hardly ever works and it takes a really long time to navigate through the menu or even to just dial a phone call. The full keypad is nice, however, sometimes the screen senses your fingers moving and shuts off your text. I had this phone replaced about three times. I would not recommend purchasing this phone.
Excerpt: This phone is very touchy and sometimes seems to have a mind of its own. I have since switch to a new phone after having the Glyde replaced 3 times. I would do your homework on this phone before buying and make sure it fits your applications and you can deal with the troubles that come with it.
Excerpt: The Samsung Glyde phone is awful! My daughter and I each got the phone because we liked the way it slides open to an alpha keyboard. That is about the only good feature of this phone. We've had problems with the phone shutting off on it's own, sending text messages when it feels like it, the back light stayed on and ran the battery down and the battery doesn't hold a charge for more than a day and a half.
Excerpt: I purchased the Samsung Glyde because it has a full keyboard and its not completely touch screen. The features are really nice and it also comes with myspace, twitter, facebook, and etc. I just wich the screen wasn't so sensitive. Sometimes the screen freezes up and I have to take the battery out to restart the phone. But overall the phone is a good starter phone for someone who is just getting into the touch screen phones.
