|A phone you can dance to, the Samsung UpStage is so unique, you have to see it (and hear it) to believe it. On one side, it's a slim, stylish Samsung phone with Stereo Bluetooth Wireless Technology and a 1.3 mega pixel camera. On the other side, it's a slim, stylish Samsung music player with touch-sensitive media controls and a stereo speaker. Either way, it's a phone you'll flip over.|

The Samsung UpStage SPH-M620 has decent call and music quality, an included extended battery, and a complete feature set that includes stereo Bluetooth, a music player, a megapixel camera, and EV-DO support. It also offers an original, ergonomic design that's user-friendly and attractive.
The Samsung UpStage SPH-M620's battery isn't user-replaceable, and its tiny phone display isn't very useful. The flipping motion can also become tedious when used over time. Finally, the music player was somewhat buggy, and the single speaker had unimpressive output.
If you can get past the learning curve, the Samsung UpStage SPH-M620 is a unique, powerful, and attractive phone that successfully combines music and calling functions into one handy convergence device. It's not perfect by any means, but it remains an innovative, satisfying phone.

This phone is very interesting and it all depends on what you are looking for in a phone.
If you are looking for a sleek little mp3 player that can also double as a phone, then this is a good match. It is very sleek and small and slim and fits right in your pocket. You can take music right from your computer to your phone just like an ipod.
If you are looking for a sleek phone, then this is great for that. It is very slim and small and fits right in your pocket. The main problem is the constant flipping.
* very slim and sleek design that fits great in your pants
* Samsung is excellent for having a phone that is easy to hear with
* large touch screen
* lots of ring/alarm tones
* it comes with a funky pouch that actually has a back up battery and when you charge the phone, if it is in this, then it will charge the other battery, giving you TWO batteries. This is actually an awesome advantage
* Samsung once again changed the charger so you need a SAMSUNG charger for this
* you have to flip the dumb phone every time you wan to talk to someone, or see who sent you a text, or do any of the menu items
* until you get used to the flipping, you may talk on the wrong side
* the side where you text is only about 1/2 inch tall
* there is a touch pad that is ultra sensitive
* the lock is kind of a pain in the butt, so you constantly call people that are on your list
* if you want a text then you have to flip it over again
Overall, if you are looking for a sleek phone that is narrow and has good reception, then this is a good match. It is a pain to constantly keep flipping though, so that is the main disadvantage. I hope this helps, and if you at least learned something new, then please vote for it. Thanks!
When I first got this phone I loved it.
It is super skinny and not that big. I loved how it comes with a cell phone case that is a back up battery pack. That was a very nice perk to this phone. The mp3 player is very nice. It is loud so you can hear it great. It is def a one of a kind phone which was the main reason I bought it. The camera can be viewed from both sides which is nice when your taking pictures by yourself but it is very tiny screen to see on the front but once you know the phone well you know where to put it to get the shot you want. It is a good quality shot too. Not the best but it works for when you don't have a real camera around. Never could figure out the zoom that the manual says it has tho. It always stayed the same. I have received so many comments on ppl loving the looks of this phone. The back screen is very clear and a good size to do what is needed. The touch pad is very easy to use and you can change the settings on that to make it harder to press or just a gentle fingertip touch.
Now that i have had the phone for almost two years it is horrible though. After about one year that is when things started going wrong. I babied this phone because I loved it. The battery life is horrible now. In this phone you can not just buy a new battery either. This is where the back up case battery came in handy. Now I have no choice but to leave that one because the phone does not work without the case on. If I take it off the phone turns off and can not be turned back on until you attach the case again. Now the phone has to constantly be charging. It always says low battery even after it is charged for 8 hours I can only make very short phone calls, 10 minutes without having a charger around. The phone freezes a lot now. When moving pictures to the memory card I can only do one per day otherwise it does not move the rest over. It locks up and then I have to take the memory card out and put it back in for it to work again. The flipping - which was a plus in the beginning - Is now really annoying. You have to constantly flip in, the alarm clock, txting, calculator, memos, planners etc. I recommend always having it set on the front especially if you do a lot of txt because otherwise you have to flip it a lot more. Randomly it began to delete numbers so I would have to turn it off then back on and then came back. The pad on the front of the phone around the menu all began to pop up. If you have a lot of songs on the phone it takes a very long time to load the songs menu. About 30 seconds just for 75 songs.
Even through all of the problems, I do love this phone overall. It is easy to use and an eye catcher. I will be getting my upgrade soon and will be sad to see it go. I think that samsung should have taken a little bit more time on this phone to work out some of the problems and it would be an awesome phone. Like the title says. It would be a great temporary phone but don't expect it to last too long. It is cheap so it is worth what you pay for in my opinion.
Thanks for reading and I hope this helps you!
I have had this phone about a month. It replaced my LG MM-535 which was great for media junkies with its TV and music capabilities. This Samsung Upstage is nice in size as it is thinner but just longer than a credit card. The phone has two screens, one on each side, that give it two personalities. It works great with Sprint's TV services and fair with web applications. The music player is great with the micro SD expansion slot. You will probably will want to get a larger than the included 64 MB card. A 4 GB card is now very affordable for audiophiles. The touch control box on the MP3 player side of the phone is a little tough to get used to but once adjusted for sensitivity work well. The small screen on the phone side does not display full menu functions and only displays a couple lines of text. If you text a lot this might not be the phone for you. The constant flipping from one screen to the next takes some getting used to as well. You must flip to the larger MP3 player screen in order to use many of the phones features. The included case and extended battery give the phone some protection and allows for extended talk time and use. I talk about 2 hours a day and I have gone up to 3 days before recharging. The audio quality is similar to that of a typical MP3 unit. In the north Texas area calls have been clear for the most part. The radiation rating is also fair which decreases the likelihood of getting cancer due to cell phone use. Go to Cnet in order to get other radiation ratings on this cell phone and others. The included software is simple and self explanatory. I have the Philips bluetooth headphones for the Upstage that allow me to listen to music or engage in a phone call which is nice. Overall I like this phone because of its small size and long battery life to accompany its media functions.
The m620 is slim, flashy, and reliable. What gives this product a good rating? Besides the new "flip" design, video ringtones, and watching up to date information on sports, traffic, and weather I guess there is not much this phone does not have. Battery life is great as long as you have the second battery hooked on (comes with phone). It's a bit difficult to get used to at first, but the simplicity of the phone is there. I would have gave this phone an excellent rating if it was not for the fact that Sprint is starting to lock down on the whole ringtone policy. No you cannot upload a song from your pc and set it as a ringtone, you have to buy it. On the other hand it does come with a small memory card, and of course the built in music player. if you are one of Sprint's reps, the phone is the best thing ever, but if you are on the everyday users side, the lack of power they give you with ringtones holds this phone from being a must have.
This was a real unique phone for me as I usually use the flip (clam Shell) phones. This was sent to me through the insurance company since my old one broke so I was forced to give it a try.
Since the phone has 2 sides it definitely takes some getting used to. I love Samsung phones since they are always very easy to hear and it is super light. The slim design is awesome since it fits into your pocket easily and you almost forget it's there. It is unique as you type, text, and look at the initial calls on the little screen, but when you want to see the rest of the text, then you hit the little Flip button and then you flip over the phone to the larger screen.
The other side is a larger screen and that uses a touch screen. It is easy to scroll through all of the messages that you have and it is much larger so you can read it all at once. The mp3 player is also very cool and I think you can have about 12 songs on it. You just download them from your computer and it is really easy, so that is pretty cool.
Another very cool feature is the case. It is a slim case that you actually plug the phone into...and it has ANOTHER battery! The phone itself will show it charging with the case. The case is really handy since Samsung keeps changing their chargers so you have to buy a new one with every phone. :(
The main con to this phone is the constant flipping. You have to keep flipping it over to either see the screen, or if you forget which side you last used, you have to flip it over to see it.
The second Con is the touch screen. It is ok at first, but it is very sensitive and there is only a little place that you can scroll up and down before you hit the Cancel option. For example: if you are trying to delete past text messages one by one, you have to scroll up one by one and click on each one. But let's say that you have already checked 50 to delete, and then your finger slips and accidently goes over the cancel button....GONE! You lose them all. I now have to do it by 5's to make sure that I don't lose them again and again. It takes a little getting used to, but more often than not it is pretty frustrating.
All in all, it is a good phone. I'm a little nervous about getting the screen scratched since it is so large, but so far so good! The touch pad will take some getting used to, and also the flipping back and forth. I even ended up talking on the wrong side once. ;) It's popular when people see it, it's slim and slick, and you can hear people really well. Check it out, and if this helps then definitely let me know!
Thanks for reading and enjoy your phone!!
