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.
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: It is so much trouble just to text because you cant touch what you want. And have to wait for the screen to shut off before it works. And verizon won't replace it because they are stupid and "nothing is wrong!
Excerpt: 600 bucks. It has this glitch where when you touch it, it sometimes goes to the same part of the screen, which happens to be exactly where you're trying NOT to go. If I was religious, I would think it was possessed by the devil. It has a mind of its own. Potential owners, beware.
Excerpt: I had received a small catalog in the mail from Verizon and began glancing through the variety of cell phones. I've had positive experiences with Verizon before, so I wasn't hesitant to get a new phone from Verizon as well. It was love at first site... until about four months after I received my new phone. I would try to send a text message, and the phone would turn itself off. I would try and make a phone call, but the phone's touch screen would malfunction and...
Excerpt: I purchased this phone last March... and it was practically unusable by the fall. Although I was extremely careful, the touch screen went quickly and was unresponsive. Making matters worse, the case and screen protector they sell for this model are cheap plastic and are garbage. They don't fit correctly or provide any protection.
Excerpt: this was the worst phone i ever had. It generally had to be charged more than once a day. MY service went in and out. I was unable to use most of the features i was paying extra for, you know a data plan. for example i tryed to download the navigator feature and it would just go to a white screen.
This phone has way too many problems; do not buy it!

Excerpt: The Samsung Glyde was the worst phone I've ever purchased. I had to replace the same model 3 times. The screen freezes constantly and the battery would not last very long. it doesn't 'lock' like it says it does, and therefore I find myself calling the first person listed in my contacts so often that he told me to delete him. When I did happen to dial or receive calls, I would almost always lose the signal. Even in my own home I couldn't get a signal!
Excerpt: There is practically nothing that works with this phone. This is by far the worst phone i have owned, used, touched or even seen. My messages more often than not remain marked as unread after i read them. This is very very annoying as it them becomes more difficult to see when i have a new message. Sure it Glydes in the sence that it opens up to an awesome qwerty keyboard which don't get me wrong, i love. However, a qwerty keyboard is neither unique to this...
The samsung glyde is the worst phone I've ever had.

Excerpt: Don't BUY THIS PHONE! Whatever you do, pick something else. For the first 2-4 weeks this phone is great (I've owned two separate phones of this model, I thought I got a bad phone the first time). After that, the touch screen quickly becomes unresponsive, incorrect in lining up your touch, and it grows a mind of its own, selecting things at what sees to be random while on a table or in your pocket or whatever.
