4.0 out of 5 stars Samsung Intensity (Verizon Wireless) April 7, 2010
The Samsung Intensity is a pretty good phone.

Features: Although this phone is not a smart phone, it has all the basic features you would expect out of a phone. This phone is able to play Music over bluetooth if you have a device that supports this. I use this feature on my Volk-L system in my car. The bluetooth stereo support isn't always the clearest sound though (although this may be just my radio that is the problem). Also I use Zune, and it is nice that I can just copy and paste my music to my phone (using the included USB charger/data cable). The phone has "Word" or I think it is called "T9" for quick txts. Which if you are used to that form of txting, it very well could be quicker than using the keyboard. The keyboard is nice (it feels nice in your hand), but the keys are not very intuitive (meaning, the keys don't always feel like they are in the places they should be). I would imagine (like anything) after getting used to the keyboard it won't be so bothersome. I would give it 5/5 on features (with the expectation that whoever is buying this is NOT expecting a smart phone).

Battery life: I would only say that the battery is 3/5 stars. It surely isn't the worst battery I have ever used, but if you are actively using the phone for txting (which is likely since it is a txting phone) the battery drains relatively fast. It will probably only last you till the end of the day with constant use (and that might be stretching it). If you leave the phone alone in your pocket the battery may last for a day and a half, but it would still be smart to charge it every time you go to bed (cause the phones buttons do get pressed in your pocket, and it will cause the screen to light up, draining battery life).

Call Sound: For call sound I would rate this phone 3.5/5.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic phone w/ slide out QWERTY May 27, 2010
- Simple design
- Compatible w/ Verizon network
(in the US many people think that's important)
- Cost me nothing to get 4 of these
(ordered on line from Verizon on a 2yr contract)
- Music player handles AAC files
- Music player displays album art
(w/ proper skin selected)
- Battery charges over USB cable
- Keypad lock
(a must if you plan to carry your phone in your pants pocket)
- Slide out QWERTY, good for text messaging

- No way to sync calendar to PC
- Can't transfer notes (text) files to PC
- As w/ most phones, difficult to see the screen outdoors in sunlight
- Custom mp3/aac ringtones only by way of picture message - not USB or SD card
- Music player is very slow to load library
- Bad placement of left/right select buttons
- microSD card access is not convenient - behind battery cover
- No video capability

I was due for an upgrade and this Samsung handset seemed like the best option for a Verizon phone w/ a music player that did not require a data plan ($10/month per line or higher.) It was already going to cost me another $10/month to add a line for my son and $30/month for the texting package. And I couldn't justify spending more for the data since I would not use it enough.

This handset makes for a decent phone for voice calls and is good for texting. It also feels pretty good in my hands.

Having the keypad lock is something I appreciate. My old phone didn't have this feature so I had to always carry the phone on my belt. With the phone in my pocket buttons would get pressed, the screen would come on at full brightness and run down the battery.

5.0 out of 5 stars great phone May 14, 2010
I love this phone. I had the LG enV touch and absolutly hated it, i had to replace it twice before i decided to switch to this phone. On my old phone it unlocked really easialy unlocked and called people on its own (the touch screen also had ceased)and this one doesnt have any of those problems. I love everything about it, the way it's so simple yet up to date technology wise is amazing. the only bad thing about this phone that if it's locked and you get a text message, it unlocks for awhile, which could result in butt-dialing. But other than that its Amazing!
