Long Battery Life!

kd, Phone Arena
14 May 2011
  • 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.
  • Pros: Super long battery life!
  • Cons: A little bulky

SAMSUNG CONVOY

JRMtwo, Phone Arena
30 March 2011
  • 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.
  • Pros: Solid feel
  • Cons: Screen useless in daylight

Hated it at first

  • 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.
  • Pros: Battery life
  • Cons: Bulky

functional and well made phone

  • Excerpt: I really do like my samsung Convoy. I've never had a problem with the durability or service. My husband was set on the candy bar style, but they didn't have any left for basic service. So, for a clamshell style, this fit the bill. It is definitely more durable then other phones we've had before. I've had this for 2.5 years now, and it's still going strong - no need to replace it.

Durable and good call quality

  • Excerpt: We purchased the Samsung Convoy through Verizon a little over a year ago. It is my husband's cell, but I use it frequently as well. Previously he had an LG Chocolate, which had awful call quality. The Samsung Convoy is crystal clear compared to the LG, it doesn't drop calls unless you are in a no service area. Both the user of the cell phone and the recipient of the call can clearly hear the conversation. Static hasn't been an issue.

  • Excerpt: Good afternoon everyone. I purchased this as a gift for my grandpa who is around 65. I used it for a week before I gave it to him to insure it does everything it needs to do. This phone is real nice and does ot cost much. Its one of those you flip outwards and it does not have many buttons which is good in my situation. The numbers are big and bright when you insert them. Reception is nice and its a pretty simple phone overall.

Great battery life but not that easy to navigate options

  • Excerpt: This phone has the best battery I've ever had.  I can go days without a recharge but I must admit I don't use it everyday.  It seems to be a very rugged phone and feels sturdy.  It is not easy to navigate though the screen options using the arrow keys.   They surround the enter key and are very close expecially if you have long nails or no nails.   There are also many levels to go through to get what you want compared to the simple LG that I used to have.

Hmm could have done better

  • Excerpt: Heck I just spent big bucks on a phone that should have basic needs, not a buddy section, a media convention page nor Sprint this and that already in prominence, let the consumer load that stuff if they desire. I would recommend a epicrubbk case 201775 that provides secure protection in case of drops. The phone offers less goodies than the shift but the plus?s outweigh those goodies.

The Samsung Convoy is a simple cell with big attributes

  • Excerpt: We replaced my husbands LG with a Samsung Convoy last week.  He had very few requests:  he wanted to call, text, and take photos... that was it!  The convoy does that and so much more!  He is very happy with his little phone, and the photos are great quality.  I am glad we dn't have to pay for features he will never use, but I am glad he can try out features he may want in the future.
