|If you want to text with style, you need a stylish texting device. Open up the Samsung Gloss, and you'll know this is no ordinary mobile phone. It's a little technological wonder packed with a full QWERTY keyboard, a 1.3-megapixel camera and a serious little music player, among many other things. And it's all wrapped up in a compact, compact-like messaging device.|

I ordered this phone for my mother, as she was looking for a phone that also had a qwerty keyboard, and stumble upon this phone. I have a bit skeptic about it as I had heard so many mixed reviews about it not having good reception, and the picture quality not being so great. So naturally the first thing I did was start snapping pictures and transferring them to my laptop, for a 1.3mp camera, I personally thought the pictures were great. As far as the reception goes, it by far has way better signal that a lot of other phones I have tried including me Blackberry. We live out in the "country" and the phone has 2 bars, my bb has 0, and the 3 motorola w385s have 2. We have had samsung phones in the past and they did not even compare to this phone. Phone is more of a girly phone as it closely resembles a woman's compact, and not to mention the pink colors that are offered. Downfall - smaller buttons, and the ringer sound seems to be rather low. But, overall a great phone.
I was waiting for my contract to roll around so I could get a new phone to replace my touch screen smart phone. I decided to buy an inexpensive used qwerty keyboard on e-bay and went with the Gloss. I was a little scared of the pink but I am so glad I bought it. It is everything I've ever wanted in a phone. I can hear it. The qwerty buttons are mistake free and so much better than my old touchscreen. In all fairness there is a part of me that wishes I had something hipper. But I don't miss the touch screen or the internet at all. I also really like the shape. It's pleasing to have around sitting on my desk. I honestly have not found a single function to complain about. I shall not get a new phone in June when my contract comes around again. I'm sticking with this.
My wife bought a new Samsung Gloss and loved it. But after it went for a ride in the wash it didn't work so good. So I bought her anther one because she was very sad that she washed her phone. The thing that IMPRESSED me the most with this Samsung Gloss phone is that after a few days of letting it sit in rice and blowing on it, Bam it works again unbelivable but her new is pink and the old one is blue so she's keeping the pink one. Samsung will get more of my money thats for sure!!!
I really like that it has a full qwerty keyboard. It makes texting so much easier for me. I also like the shape and size of this phone. It would have been better if the keys were a little larger. Can't seem to be able to figure out how to delete some things on it. I decided to buy this phone because of the qwerty keyboard and U.S.Cellular service. All in all, I feel this is a good phone.
I decided to purchase this phone because I text a lot. After using it for a few days this is what I have to say about it.
Voice quality is average
Weaker signal compared to the other phones I've had
Keyboard is small and it can be difficult to type on
Battery life is around 3 hours of talk time. I'm constantly charging it.
In short if you don't mind the small keyboard then this would be a good phone. However, if you are a cell phone only house and talk on the phone a lot I would not recommend this phone.
