Samsung Trance SCH-u490 (Verizon Wireless)

  • Conclusion: The glitzy, made-for-music Samsung Trance is a decent GPS-enabled voice phone, but it lacks 3G, and its music player disappoints.
  • Pros: Attractive. Standard-size headphone jack and side-mounted microSD card slot. Can multitask while playing music.
  • Cons: No 3G. Weak battery. Low-res screen. Side buttons are easily triggered during calls. Poor sound quality with music.

Samsung Trance

25 June 2010
  • Summary: The Samsung Trance is a great MP3 phone that combines excellent audio quality in a slim and attractive package.
  • Pros: The Samsung Trance has a beautiful and sophisticated design, plus it has stereo Bluetooth and a 3.5 millimeter headset jack. The audio quality is fantastic, especially with 3D surround sound.
  • Cons: We weren't pleased with the flat touch-sensitive navigation array, and the photo quality isn't great. The Samsung Trance also doesn't have EV-DO, which means it can't download songs over-the-air.

Samsung Trance

21 May 2009
  • Conclusion: If you’re looking for a phone with a pretty face and a beautiful voice, the Samsung Trance fits the bill quite well. In addition you also get the built-in GPS that works with VZ Navigator and Chaperone, a roomy 1GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot and a camera. Music download isn’t the most convenient compared to the LG Chocolate 3, but it doesn’t affect those who load their own music instead of buying tracks over the air.
  • Pros: Good looking slider phone with good audio and a very nice music player., Sporty, shiny looking phone. Good screen and excellent audio. Large internal memory and the music player can play tracks in a good selection of formats.
  • Cons: No 3G EVDO or music download over the air. Can’t record video., No 3G EVDO and no over-the-air music download. Camera can’t record video.
