Summary: The Samsung Intensity is a simple entry-level messaging phone with a few multimedia goodies that's very affordable and easy to use.
Pros: The Samsung Intensity has an attractive and compact design, a great keyboard, and a nice display. It has a megapixel camera, a music player, and GPS.
Cons: The Samsung Intensity can't download songs over the air even though it is compatible with V Cast Music, the navigation keys are a little cramped, and the photo quality could be improved. The microSD card slot is inconveniently located behind the battery cover.
Conclusion: The Samsung Intensity U450 isn’t that “intense” and doesn’t offer anything new that can’t be found on the competition. Its main selling feature is the QWERTY keyboard combined with the phone’s low price-point, but you get what you pay for as the Intensity’s overall build quality is lacking. If you are looking for a basic phone with a QWERTY keyboard and without a touchscreen, the LG enV3 is still the top device in that category.
Pros: Compact design, Updated music player, Good signal reception
Cons: The device feels cheap, Low quality 1.3MP camera, Call quality is lacking
Excerpt: The Samsung Intensity is a horizontal slider with a distinctive Samsung look. Closed, the Intensity has an attractive, stylized fascia with red accents and large, waved keys on its alphanumeric keypad. The 2.1-inch 176 x 220 resolution display is adequate but not impressive. When opened, the Intensity reveals a full QWERTY keypad that, while thoughtful in its key placement and design, lack the spaciousness one needs to really rock the keypad.
