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.
Excerpt: I decided to get the Samsung Glyde for two main reasons: I was able to get it for free with my renewal of contract and the fact that it also contained a QWERTY keyboard. One of the biggest problems with this phone is the touch screen. While the touchscreen generally works, it is can be quite slow and sometimes outright unresponsive. This is a serious problem as the phone is largely navigated by using the touchscreen.
Excerpt: Just bought this touch screen phone in September and I am not thrilled with it at all. The touch pad works, then doesn't work. So frustrating. Have to hit the designated area exactly right or it connects to the nearest button. Suspect there are better touch screen phones out there...
Excerpt: I've had my Glyde for a few months. Overall it is a good phone. I like the features. Sound can be choppy at times even with a good signal. My biggest gripe is with the touchscreen, it can freeze up occasionally. If you don't touch buttons just right you will get no response (my wife has the same problem with hers all the time). If you're impatient buy a different phone. If you're patient it isn't bad. Ringers could stand to be a little louder.
Excerpt: I fell in love with the Glyde at the store. After using it a few days I began to have problems with the touch screen. It will sometimes not respond. That can be very annoying. But, I used the GPS navigation system just last week and it was fantastic! Overall, I like the phone, but it was a little overpriced!
Cute and fun, but once you're inlove it all goes down hill

Excerpt: When I first received the Samsung Glyde I was INLOVE. Not only did it provide the new touchscreen technology like the IPhone or Blackberry Storm, but it also came with a QWERTY keyboard for my uncontrollable texting habit! I loved it! Everything I needed packed into a small, cute, fun little phone. Unlike Verizon's hottest Dare touch phone or the Voyager the Samsung Glyde is smaller and sleeker, in my opinion. So I chose it over the more expensive options.
Excerpt: I started using my fiance's Glyde when my phone was stolen, just until my new phone comes. I just can't get used to it. The keypad is alright, but once you hit the function button it changes until you change it back, my phone wasn't like that. It has few options with function, so you still have to go to options for things like parentheses and semi colons. His phone is a year old and the touch screen is losing sensitivy.
Excerpt: I personally love the Samsung Glyde and hate it at the same time. If it were perfect, I love the design. The touch screen is unique and the slide out keyboard is convenient and fun. I like the small shape and the ease of sliding it into my pocket. The only problem is, it has many glitches about it. I have actually had three of them because of the difficulties with them, but I would never want to try a different phone even though this one has problems.
Excerpt: I got this phone a couple of years ago. Samsung had come out with a new slide phone and I got the Glyde for cheap as it was going off the market of new phones. The Glyde is relatively small and has a touch screen main and slides open for a full keyboard. The problem is the touch screen. While I'm at least grateful it works well with a stylus or any small object, the screen has gotten TERRIBLE.
Excerpt: I recently purchased the samsung glyde with my new verizon wireless cell phone plan. I was first drawn into this product by its (at the time) new "touch screen" technology in addition to the full QWERTY keypad. At first I was attracted to this phone for its many smart-phone-like attributes. For starters, this phone comes GPS enabled as well as internet (full internet i migiht add) and mobile email computability.
