Samsung Zeal SCH-u750 (Verizon Wireless) review: Samsung Zeal SCH-u750 (Verizon Wireless)

 

Fans of the Samsung Alias 2 should love the Samsung Zeal's identical convertible flip design and e-ink keyboard. However, if you're not open to a learning curve, the Zeal has little new to offer.

Samsung Samsung Alias 2

 

The Samsung Alias 2 ($150 from Verizon, as of 6/25/09) is dual-hinged like its predecessor, the Alias, and it boasts a neat E Ink morphing keyboard that changes according to the phone orientation and menu. Though it isn't a smartphone, it supports...

E-ink keyboard is uniquel ; Great call quality

All extra features cost more ; Large compared to other phones

Great phone for calling, not for features--unless you're willing to invest quite a bit more than the asking price.

Review: Samsung Alias 2

 

Samsung's Alias 2 is aptly named; it leads a double life. On one hand, it's slick and cool, with a vibrant swivel screen and an...

E Ink keyboard morphs button layouts when switching from phone to messaging device. Voice quality is high. Battery life is nearly six hours. Reasonably priced

The Dear Diary feel of the interface is at odds with anyone over 13. My Room Menu theme is embarrassing. Lack of dedicated buttons leave you hunting and pecking for even the most common tasks

Samsung Alias 2 Review

 

Priced at $79.99, the Alias 2 is in the same league as excellent clamshell devices such as the LG Chocolate 3 (which costs just $10 more), and other full QWERTY messaging devices such as the enV2 (which costs $10 less). Both of those phones are...

Excellent E-Ink keyboard, Solid dual-hinge design, Excellent call quality, Affordably priced

Awkwardly placed D-pad, Somewhat bulky, No 3.5 mm headphone jack

Samsung Alias 2 SCH-u750 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Samsung Alias 2 uses innovative e-ink tech to create a shifting keypad that's made for texting.

Innovative e-ink keypad technology. Flips two ways for easier dialing and texting. Solid call quality.

Subpar e-mail app and Web browser. No user-customizable keypad shortcuts.

Samsung Alias 2 SCH-U750 (Verizon Wireless) review: Samsung Alias 2 SCH-U750 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Samsung Alias 2 has an innovative keypad that takes different forms depending on how you're using the phone. Its feature set is well-stocked and its overall performance for calls, video, and music is satisfying.

The Samsung Alias 2's navigation controls take acclimation. The phone lacks Wi-Fi and POP3 e-mail access is limited to a Web-based interface. Also, adding up the various data features is expensive.

The Samsung Alias 2 is an inventive update to Samsung's previous messaging phone. Provided you can afford it, and learn how to use it, it's a powerful messaging device with reliable performance.

Samsung Alias 2 (U750)

 

The Samsung Alias 2 may not be a head turner when you pull it out of a pocket, but once you flip it open (horizontally or vertically) and reveal its chameleon-like E-Ink keypad people will definitely give the Alias 2 a second look. Building on the...

Samsung Alias 2 U750 Review

 

When the Samsung Alias U740 was first released two years ago, we were intrigued by its dual-hinge design and QWERTY keyboard. Unfortunately after using it, we felt the keyboard buttons were too small and the lack of a good display and camera also made...
