Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewGood

  • THE GOOD

    The Samsung Reality has an intuitive display, three home screens, a 3.5mm headset jack, a nice keyboard, and features that include a 3.2-megapixel camera, GPS, and stereo Bluetooth.

  • THE BAD

    The Samsung Reality isn't quite as good as the Samsung Rogue, has almost the same design and features, and is also on Verizon Wireless. We also wished the photo quality was better.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    On its own, the Samsung Reality is a great midrange multimedia phone, but it doesn't hold a candle to the Rogue, which has a better design and better features.

Excellent phone! Best of both worlds, touch + buttons!!

I have had this phone for about a week and love it. The transitions are great, the touch screen on the phone is very responsive, and you have a full-sized qwerty keyboard that slides out which is great for messaging. I had an LG Chocolate Touch before this phone and enjoyed its functionality, but the touch screen only lasted about 8 months before it stopped working so I felt that a replacement phone with physical buttons in addition to the touch screen was the way to go and so far it really has been. The 'home screen' is very user friendly and provides a lot of icons to navigate to directly. The voice command button is awesome too. The phone supports a data package but is not required so you have the option of paying the extra 10 bucks per month or just having an awesome touch screen phone. Plus, it was very easy to activate the phone on Verizon's network and customer was very helpful...which was a shocker since they have never been in the past and assumed they would be more rude since I bought a replacement phone off of ebay instead of spending money in their store but I was totally wrong and had a pleasant experience dealing with them.

I would recommend this phone for someone who is looking for a stylish touch screen phone who isn't looking for quite the android power nor the expensive data plan that you are forced to buy with it.

Awesome Phone

This phone has got excellent reviews and after as many phones as I have had, I am ready for a phone that is strong yet simple to use and has all of the features I would Like. This was a great price for the phone and I believe I got a great deal on a great phone.

This phone is intuitive, yet simple - Technology, but yet basic and still has the power to grow if you want a full web browser and email support. What I like about this phone is you don't have to have the whole $29.99 package but a $9.99 package. If I wanted to I could do the $29.99 package that would give me email and web browsing, more room to grow - but I think with all of the features on this phone as it is, ill stick with the $9.99 package.

Perfect multimedia phone!

I love:
-Of all Verizon-approved multimedia phones, this one requires the lowest data plan. This saves me about $20 a month!
-This phone has the easiest user interface of any phone I've ever used.
-The touch screen is so great and adds to the convenience and user-friendliness of the phone
-The home screen is fully customizable with shortcuts to the applications i use most - like Facebook and the drawing pad.

Dislike: the power button is protruding from the front of the phone. So when I keep the phone in my pocket, I sometimes accidentally turn it off.

Really Great Little Phone

I have now bought two of these phones, one for myself and another for a friend... she loves it too. The battery life is great and the keyboard is SO much better than the virtual ones... like Apple 3 or 4 G and the HTC Incredible for example. My fingers are just be too fat for them, but my hands are really not that big.

The Samsung Reality is easy to use with all you'd ever need for talk and text. I don't use it for the Internet so I can't comment. I wish the app writers would keep writing for these phones and not devote so many resources to the "smart" phones. Where is "Talking Tomcat" for our non-smart phones anyway?

I also wish manufacturers like Samsung and others would keep them current a little longer, as retail stores don't carry many accessories for it... IE screen protectors, etc.
