5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent phone released September 8, 2009 September 18, 2009
This cell phone was released on September 8, 2009 by Samsung and Verizon, along with the Samsung Rogue. The phone is supposed to be 'entry level'. There is no annoying 'touch screen' that drains battery life and freezes screens, but instead, has old fashioned buttons. This phone also has a slide down keyboard for surfing the internet, texting and easily storing contact names/numbers. It also stores music and has a headphone jack to listen to your music. Most importantly, this cell phone has EXCELLENT reception, no dropped calls and very long battery life. I charged this phone after buying it and am on my 4th day with battery life to spare. The phone comes with a wall charger and USB cable for easy downloading of pictures taken with the 1.3 megapixel camera.

Note this phone does not come with a car charger so I went onto ebay and bought a Samsung OEM (Original Equipment) car charger for $7 which included shipping, go ebay!

For 75% of people in this world who have cellphones, most do not spent their days sending tons of text messages and surfing the internet on their painfully slow cellphone. We have desktops and laptops for that. This cellphone is perfect for someone who wants a sharp sleek phone, large bright screen with slide out keyboard and basic functions that a cellphone should have. I want my phone to have good reception and no missed calls. Samsung delivers with their latest technology. Entry level? I don't think. It's got everything that the kids today do (texting, surfing, bluetooth, etc.) except that this phone stresses the basics. The speakerphone is easy to use, the ringtone volume to vibrate is easily accessible on the side buttons of the phone. There are about 20 ringtones to choose from.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for Me January 30, 2010
I got this phone for my New Every Two; normally I spend a few weeks or months researching phones, lusting after one, playing with it in the store, etc., before purchasing, but I put the least amount of research/time into this purchase, getting it after only a week of knowing about it... which was a mistake, big surprise. I've definitely learned my lesson on this one. I don't think I expect too much out of a phone (if it makes calls and I can text, I'm generally happy,) but this phone just didn't deliver.

After using the enV2 for the past two years, I knew I wanted a phone with a QWERTY keyboard. This has a sleeker look than my previous phone, which I liked, and it was $50 in-store with a $50 rebate, and who can say no to free? not me, that's who.

The keyboard's layout is different from my old phone's, of course, but every phone has an adjustment period, so I wasn't too worried about that. For the most part I have adjusted to the different layout, but there are still some lingering issues. The keys on the Intensity are really small (most other phones where people claim this is an issue I don't have a problem with thanks to tiny fingers, but this one stumps even me,) and the layout of the special characters is pretty strange. Maybe it's just me, but when I see a QWERTY keypad, I expect it to be like my computer's keyboard, and the fact that the characters are just thrown wherever (the exclamation point being on the 'p' and not the '1' gets me every time) irks me.

I also have issues with this phone pocket dialing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay, but not well designed. September 24, 2009
Had this phone for a week, and with my small, girl fingers I thot the small button design wouldn't be a problem, but it's turned out to be a regular pain.

sleek, attractive look.
QWERTY keyboard is a nice feature
takes good photos
good battery life

face buttons are difficult to push
call and end call buttons are too small (major flaw when trying to answer the phone!)
a bit bulky
texting keyboard keys often need pressing twice to register the letter
auto lock can be easily unlocked if jostled in purse or placed in pocket (another major flaw! i found my butt made more calls than i did!)

1.0 out of 5 stars Get a different phone February 17, 2010
I agree with the other reviews - I got this model as the 2 year 'free' upgrade. It had a keyboard for texting and seemed 'strong' and easy to use. My other phone is a Blackberry and the keyboard on the BB is much easier to use than this one. The Intensity's keyboard - which it looks like it'd be easy to type on - is NOT. The keys are hard to press down - so you find yourself having to retype on a key which causes miskeying - it really slows me down. I can do a long BB text in seconds. This thing takes a minute to peck out a short message. The phone does not bounce well. I drop phones - sorry - life happens. This phones drops into pieces. The back comes off, the battery goes flying - and it's a hassle to put batch together. Again, the BB takes a fall pretty nicely. The sound quality on the Intensity is ok and it detects blue tooth devices quickly. Another thing about the keyboard, there is no intuitive way to select a menu item from the keyboard. So when you text someone, you have to keep the phone upright and select contacts, the name, options, sms text - then flip the phone around to type. Too much work. If you text a lot, this is NOT the phone you want. If you only text a little - create a few templated text messages and you should be ok with this one. Though - it's highly priced and there is probably something better out there for you.
