Excerpt: Very similar to the convoy 2. The main menu button is not as easy to manipulate. Same average camera. The biggest problem is the text. There has to be a software issue here. The font on the convoy 3 is half the size as the convoy 2 making it very difficult to use. Neither Samsung or Verizon could fix it. Both were suprised how small it is.
Excerpt: I have had the Samsung Convoy for 2 years and it has been the best phone I have ever had. It has the best reception and call quality. The battery will last for several days without needing charging. I have just changed to the LG Octang because I wanted to text and the Octang makes it easier to text, but the reception is not nearly as good and it is not as easy to use as the Convoy. If you want a great phone that is simple, this is it.
Excerpt: While I am a staunch flip phone advocate, I am considering a smart phone, have to move to the 90s right? My issues with the Convoy are the blue tooth and the T9 vocabulary. The phone auto pairs with my car for about 2 weeks then I have to re-seat the battery. Usually don't discover until I receive a call while driving. When texting you would think it would recognize the need for the word 'is' or 'it' rather than '47' or the word 'when' instead of '9436'.
Excerpt: First off I have to say I love the Military specs! The phone is durable, and yes it is bulky but it also helps with the durability! To me it seems harder to loose something you KNOW is there. The camera on the phone is amazingly clear and the sound quality for ringtones is great! I love that you can put an SD card in it and use it as an MP3 plus it has internet as well as video messaging. No the video messaging isn't the best thats probably the only downfall.
Pros: camera, internet, reception, durability, call quality, military specs, sound of speakers, dual screens, huge contact list, sd card slot
Excerpt: Did alot of looking around on the net bout this phone happy i got this insted of the junk moto or casio has to offer i would recommend this phone to any one who wants a great phone with good features loud speakers and very loud ear piece bravo to the convoy bravo
Pros: just an all around great phone i
Cons: ahh not that it matters but not fully water proof but oo well
Excerpt: Before this phone, I had a Blackberry & two Droids. While those were great phones, the battery life on them was terrible. I got sick of charging my phone around the clock & decided to try something a bit simpler. I researched Verizon phones with long battery lives & this seemed to be one of the best in that department. Although this isn't the fanciest or most attractive phone, it's dependable and the battery life is amazing.
Excerpt: I like the solid feel of the phone. Sound is clear with speaker on and off. Reception is about average but no antenna port. Battery life is excellent. Screen usless in daylight. Holster falls off belt easly but sealed ports make for pocked or purse carry. Port covers attached to phone when off the port. Ring solund level a bit low. Interface is similar to last phone and covers all the tasks I need.
Excerpt: Very satisfied with the battery life! I don't text or surf so re-charge once a week is all. Call quality is great. Great customization of buttons and shortcuts. Hated the fact that I couldn't hit a key in the middle of the night to see what time it was, but, found that holding one of the front keys down turns it on. Nice lock feature was prob needed. No accidental pics and music playing.
Excerpt: Long battery life, large bulky flip phone - poor screen resolution - camera okay, not great - lack of accessories, i.e. cases/covers - fair call quality in fringe areas - okay call quality in good signal area - not one of Samsung's best phones. Feature phone uses are being left out when it comes to good feature phones, carriers plan to force everyone into a smartphone to generate more revenue.
