Samsung Intensity II Review
25 December 2010
Excerpt: Last year Samsung introduced the Intensity (SCH-U450). It was a very basic handset. This year the Samsung Intensity II (SCH-U460) has been released. This model is accompanied by a nicer look and a blend of useful features.
Summary: The Samsung Intensity II is a good midrange phone for teens, thanks to its various social networking and communications tools. While there are some drawbacks, the moderate price is a draw.
Pros: The Samsung Intensity II has a full QWERTY keyboard, solid messaging and e-mail tools, and handy search and navigation extras. The attractive, compact design and eco-conscious construction is a bonus.
Cons: The navigation keys are a little cramped, the 2.5 millimeter headset jack is inconvenient, you can't download music directly to the phone, and the call quality could be better.
Conclusion: So is the Samsung Intensity II U460 worth buying if you have the original Intensity U450? Not really. The only noticeable upgrade is the QVGA display, as most everything else is pretty much the same, except for some minor cosmetic differences. But that being said, the Intensity II is a pretty decent message phone considering its low price, plus it doesn’t require Verizon’s $9.99 monthly data plan that more advanced phones use, such as the Samsung Rogue U820 .
Pros: Compact Design, Good signal reception, 2.2” QVGA display
Cons: Low quality 1.3MP camera, QWERTY keys are flat and feel cramped, Dialpad is small causing misdials
