Product Description

Amazon.com

The Samsung Zeal for Verizon Wireless gives you the convenience of a QWERTY keypad in a unique flip-style format. It has the same dual-hinge design and a Magic Key keypad using e-ink technology that made the Samsung Alias 2 a hit. In phone mode, you see a standard phone keypad. In texting mode, however, the keys magically change into a full, four-row QWERTY keypad.



The Zeal features a dual-hinge
design and a Magic Key keypad
using e-ink technology.

The Zeal is compatible with the V Cast Music with Rhapsody service, which enables you to purchase songs through your phone and download them via the fast Verizon Wireless 3G EV-DO data network. You'll also stay on course thanks to the VZ Navigator GPS turn-by-turn direction service. And with the optional Visual Voice Mail service, you'll be able to quickly and easily scroll through your messages and pick the ones you want to listen to.

It includes corporate e-mail support for Microsoft Office Exchange so you can synchronize corporate e-mail, contacts and calendars from their office e-mail. And you can make unlimited Skype-to-Skype calls and IM chat using the Skype Mobile app over the Verizon Wireless network.

Other features include a 2-megapixel camera/camcorder, Bluetooth for hands-free devices and stereo music streaming, microSD memory expansion (up to 32 GB), multi-format music player, and up to 5 hours of talk time.

See more details on optional Verizon Wireless services below.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Feature Phone! November 28, 2010
I got this phone 3 days ago and I'm loving it! Love the dual keyboard. What really surprised me was the voice recognition...it kicks a**! I didn't have to train the phone to know my voice and you can have it do anything with a few words. I wasn't even concerned with that feature when I bought it, but I'm enjoying it very much. If you don't need a smartphone, this phone is an excellent choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this phone! November 17, 2010
This phone is very similar to the Alias, but BETTER! It became available on November 15th (the day I bought it), so I've only been using it for 3 days, but so far I'm very happy with it. Three major selling points: It's a flip phone (no accidental dialing), it has an excellent texting keypad, and Verizon does not require that you carry a minimum internet access fee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Samsung Zeal from Verizon Wireless August 12, 2011
I agreed to a 2-year family contract with Verizon Wireless in December 2010. I got this phone for myself and a different phone for my wife. I don't use many of the features this phone offers. I needed only a good quality flip phone that could handle text messaging and had a decent camera. There are tons of phones that meet those qualifications. But I wanted to go with Verizon as my carrier, mostly because my employer offered a good discount if I went with Verizon and took the two year plan. This phone was featured on Verizon's main sales page so I agreed.

First of all, I don't use many of it's features. I didn't get a data plan so I rarely use anything that requires a data connection with the web browser. I only stick to data connections that are free. The phone comes with three email options [Mobile, Mobile Web, and Microsoft Exchange for Corporate email], and an App called "Social Beat" to connect to your facebook, twitter accounts etc. I don't make use of those features so I won't comment on them. I also do not make use of V CAST Music or Rhapsody music service. I also do not have a bluetooth headset. Nor do I use the VZ Navigator application. So I can't comment on those.

What I like is the microSD card reader, which allows you copy and transfer just about anything, including videos, music, photos and contacts. It is convieniently located and doesn't get in my way when using the phone. Very easy to transfer content in either direction...(Phone to Card, or Card to Phone.) I can take photos with the camera and easily copy them to my laptop at a later time.

The call quality is fine. Previously I had an old model AT&T flip phone. It dropped several calls while on the AT&T network.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good microphone for soft spoken users December 18, 2010
Tested this in a Verizon store. Left myself a voice message.
My voice mail messages sounded noticeaby better than the LG Octane and slighty better than the old non-touch LG Cosmos. The Cosmos has better speakerphone though.
The keyboard is not perfect for one handed dialing, but at least the sound is decent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Phone I've owned May 5, 2011
I was looking for a simple flip phone to replace a Palm Centro. I hated all the free phones that Verizon had to offer when extending my current contract. They had this for a reasonable price, but I was initially turned off by what I perceived as a "gimmicky" phone with the dual flip action. I decided to give it a try mostly due to lack of better options in the price range. I have really loved this phone. I admit that I do not use many of the features that this phone has to offer. I rarely text and I have never used Bluetooth or the web browser, so I can't speak to the usefulness of these features. Generally, I talk for about 15 to 20 minutes a day on this phone. I have found that I only recharge the battery every 5 to 7 days. Other users who have experienced poor battery life must talk an awful lot to require daily charging. There may be other explanations such as leaving your Bluetooth and/or other features on all of the time...

I like this phone for its excellent battery life, sturdy construction, and clear sound. It has exceeded all of my expectations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Phone, a Few Drawbacks January 11, 2011
I've had this phone now for about a week, and it is extremely different from my old Samsung Juke. The e-ink keyboard is great, and it is a sturdy phone. However, there are some drawbacks.
My Juke had incredible sound quality, whether playing ringtones or music. Downloaded ringtones on the Zeal sound as if they are playing underwater. However, music played on it sounds incredible, whether you're using headphones or not! The speakers on my laptop are great, and the Zeal sounds just as good. The Zeal does not have the standard charger or headphone jack, but it does have the same as the Juke so that isn't a problem for me. The Zeal only comes in black, and though you can buy hard cases for it, they don't fit very well. I bought a red one, and it cracked immediately.
For the most part, this phone is great. It is slim, has a sturdy hinge, and great picture quality. The gel-like keyboard takes some getting used to, especially for someone who has not used a qwerty keyboard before. Battery life is decent, though it could be better. If you tend to play with your phone frequently, but prepared to need to charge it at least every couple of days.
For those who decide to purchase the Samsung Zeal, I hope you are happy with your choice!
