Summary: Verizon Wireless already offers the Samsung u740 for messaging addicts who don't want a full-on smartphone, and now they've added to the low/mid-range with the Juke. A cost-conscious, high-style musicphone, Juke offers an excellent music player with an iPod-like scroll wheel and 2GB of storage in a unique, swivel form factor.
Excerpt: Samsung's SCH-U470 Juke for Verizon Wireless may look more like an MP3 player than a phone, but rest assured that it is just as capable of making calls as it is of playing your music collection from its 2GB of internal memory. Michelle checks it out in this review.
Conclusion: The Samsung Juke is a good affordable music player cell phone. Its 2GB memory will let you store a fair number of MP3 songs (roughly 600 basic songs) and its thin candy bar design is stylish and will slip easily in your pocket. But if you want a phone that's highly functional and will help you stay productive, look elsewhere. The Juke's form factor is perfect for a music player but not extremely appropriate for a cell phone.
Pros: The Samsung Juke has a full-featured music player., It is lightweight, thin, and narrow., The sound quality is above average.
Cons: Given the small size, text messaging is not as easy as it usually is on other phones., It does not have a memory extension card slot. However it does have a 2GB internal memory., It takes a while to get used to the swivel system.
