Tried to satisfy phablet craving with a decent basic phone. Epic fail.

  • Summary: Bought it because my wife 'lost' her previous phone. She dislikes the Samsung because the screen's uncomfortably small; the menu tree isn't intuitive. I haven't replaced this one yet since she won't like anything that doesn't resemble my son's phablet.

Plastic, easy to scuff screen. Put a screen protector on it asap, Gr8phone

  • Summary: Only draw back that we found was the screen is made of a plastic. After one week of being carried in a pant pocket (with no other objects in the pocket at the same time) the screen became very scuffed and marred the vision. Solution: as soon as you purchase your phone, put a screen protector on it. Otherwise, we loved this phone.

Cost effective

RapidRog, Samsung

  • Summary: As my wife died recently, I had to reduce expenses due to reduced income. I traded in our Iphone to get a simple but effective phone. The Samsung Intensity III was recommended by my Verizon service rep as a basic phone that would do what I wanted. As I am retired and no longer in business, the Intensity III certainly fits my needs and significantly reduces my monthly expense.
  • Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Inexpensive, Durable, Lightweight, easy to hodld evan with the case added

A More Positive/Accurate Review:

Raynen, Phone Arena
16 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Unlike the previous review, I am very pleased with this phone and it has served me extremely well. The overall design of the phone is great , with the slide-out keyboard perfectly allowing for easy texting. All of the buttons are well-placed and responsive, and the screen size is quite nice. With the exception of the nearly unusable, bad camera, the phone is efficient and well designed.
  • Pros: Awesome Slide-out Keyboard, Decent amount of preset Tools/apps, Good Menu design/layout, Great Button Feel, SD Card Slot
  • Cons: Bad Camera Quality/Resolution, Practically Unusable Voice Commands, Medium quality speakers

Good basic phone

  • Summary: I had the older model of this phone and liked it so I got the newer model when it came time to renew.
  • Pros: Voice recognition, it speaks the name of the person calling if set up to do so. Charging is quick. Easy to use.
  • Cons: I'm not happy about the battery life. It seems I need to charge every 2nd or 3rd day and I don' use it all that much.
