Review: Samsung SCH-u740 (Verizon)

18 May 2007
  • Conclusion: The SCH-u740 is a contradictory device. On the one hand, it has excellent, refined hardware that makes it easier to get more done with your phone. The integration of a keyboard and the ability to take full advantage of the dual-hinge is simply unprecedented in a United States phone. However, Verizon ruined this device. What would otherwise be an excellent phone is marred by a sluggish, hindered experience.

Samsung Alias U740

6 May 2007
  • Conclusion: A superbly light and stylish phone with a literal twist. The Samsung Alias aims to please heavy texters who don't want the heft and girth of the LG enV. The phone has great ergonomics, a very pleasant main display despite the average resolution and a usable QWERTY keyboard. Build quality is good, battery life is decent and the touch sensitive outer music controls are a nice touch.

Noah's Samsung SCH-U740 review

3 May 2007
  • Summary: Given that self-assessment, the Samsung SCH-u740 for Verizon Wireless is definitely the kind of phone I like.  It's a flip phone that opens in two directions.  It's got more than 40 buttons and two screens but is only 15mm thick.  Best of all, it's a messaging powerhouse that looks like a regular old phone to the unknowing outsider.

Samsung SCH-U740

PC Magazine
14 April 2007
  • Conclusion: Samsung's SCH-U740 for Verizon is a somewhat slimmer alternative to LG's enV for text and IM addicts, but I still prefer the competition.
  • Pros: Slim. Excellent voice quality. Good sound from speakers.
  • Cons: Confusing keyboard and interface. Poor Web and e-mail software.

Samsung Alias U740 Review

Phone Arena
6 April 2007
  • Conclusion: After reviewing the LG enV, we had high hopes for the competing Samsung U740, since both devices offer a QWERTY keypad. Unfortunately, we came away from the U740 with a feeling that Samsung dropped the ball when designing this phone. The U740 shares none of the “high end” features found on the enV, and even the QWERTY keypad is difficult to use.
  • Pros: Slim dimensions and weight, Dual hinge design, Internal Antenna, MP3/WMA Music Player with Touch Sensitive Control Buttons, Bluetooth, MicroSD Card Slot
  • Cons: Internal Display is only 176x220, Not QVGA, QWERTY buttons are small and cramped to closely together, Camera is only 1.3MP, Stereo Speakers sound distorted when playing Ringtones/Speakerphone/MP3 at high volume, Background “hiss” sound during phone calls, No Stereo Bluetooth A2DP support

1 March 2007
  • Excerpt: Michelle has been putting Samsung's SCH-u740 through its paces for the past week. This Verizon 3G handset has a dual-action hinge that allows it to be used in the traditional portrait mode as well as in a QWERTY friendly landscape orientation.
