Samsung Alias SCH-u740 Review

 

Most functions perform admirably, but you may never get accustomed to this schizophrenic configuration.

Samsung Alias (SCH-u740) Review

 

This phone features an innovative dual-hinge clamshell design with a QWERTY keyboard that makes for easy typing.

Comfortable QWERTY keyboard ; Innovative dual-hinge design

Unimpressive battery life ; Web browser can be hard to use

Despite having a few quirks, the SCH-u740 should appeal to anyone looking for an attractive, inexpensive phone with deep messaging capabilities

Samsung SCH-U740

 

Samsung's new messaging phone for Verizon flips two ways for easier texting.

Slim. Excellent voice quality. Good sound from speakers.

Confusing keyboard and interface. Poor Web and e-mail software.

Review: Samsung/Verizon SCH-u740 Smartphone

 

We love QWERTY phones over here at the Gadget Lab, but the u740 actually made our hearts go pitter-pat. Housed in an attractive “metallic champagne”...

1.3-megapixel cam sports flash, auto-focus, and digital zoom. QWERTY keyboard makes texting and IMing a sweet fix for SMS junkies. Touch sensitive external MP3 controls look cool and are extremely responsive

Hinge feels fragile. Video capture is choppy at best. No exterior camera button. Numeric keys are a little crammed together for the fat-fingered set. Wireless email sync costs an additional premium

Samsung SCH-u740 review

 

Samsung SCH-u740 series

The Samsung SCH-u740 has a sleek and attractive design with a cool, dual-flip hinge that lets you view the display in either portrait or landscape mode. It has a QWERTY keyboard, access to Verizon's V Cast offerings, and a full array of multimedia...

The Samsung SCH-u740 lacks a dedicated camera key on the phone's exterior, and the video quality is mediocre. We're also not fans of the touch screen music controls.

The Samsung SCH-u740's dual-flip design and QWERTY keyboard are great for text-messaging fans, and its impressive feature set seals its deal as one of Verizon's strongest multimedia handsets.

Samsung SCH-U740 Review

 

When we first saw the Samsung Juke, we pegged it immediately: It's an MP3 player with cell phone functionality. That's exactly what it is, making this cell phone a great choice for people who want a decent MP3 player that can also place calls. As such,...

Samsung Alias U740 Review

 

Slim dimensions and weight, Dual hinge design, Internal Antenna, MP3/WMA Music Player with Touch Sensitive Control Buttons, Bluetooth, MicroSD Card Slot

Internal Display is only 176x220, Not QVGA, QWERTY buttons are small and cramped to closely together, Camera is only 1.3MP, Stereo Speakers sound distorted when playing Ringtones/Speakerphone/MP3 at high volume, Background “hiss” sound during phone...

After reviewing the LG enV, we had high hopes for the competing Samsung U740, since both devices offer a QWERTY keypad. Unfortunately, we came away from the U740 with a feeling that Samsung dropped the ball when designing this phone. The U740 shares...
