No Battery Life - Not even a day

Posted on: December 20th, 2009 by Maureen Wagener

The good: Good sound qualityThe bad: You have to leave it plugged into the wall. Summary: With less than 5 phone short phone calls, the battery dies before the afternoon break. Cannot even leave it unplugged from the time I leave for work to the time I arrive back home. Don't buy one.

Verizon Samsung Saga

Posted on: March 18th, 2009 by Anonymous

The good: Wow everything.... really!I have been using a 700w then wx for the last 3 years and this phone fixed everything and added more goodies than I know what to do with! No more missing emails that disappear during a phone call while working on something, and the list goes on.The bad: Not really a con but the "windows" start key is a little out of place iMO, the location. I also wish you could power the screen down from double hitting the end callIf you use bluetooth a lot make sure you get the extended battery (or at least the car charger)Summary: This is the phone to have, if you were debating.. get it. This phone is perfect for business or just having fun; today I was up on the slopes listening to my mp3's w/ my wireless BT Voyager 855's and it was sweet, on the lifts I was knocking off some emails keeping the inbox manageable on my day off. I think the keyboard on the front is a must (personal opinion) to be a good business phone especially if you are on the road a lot. I think the slider phones are fine for kids playing and texting but just don't cut it otherwise. Again the feel is great, the extended battery is a must have for folks like me on the phone all day and using wireless. On wireless it's great being able to hit a hot spot and use high speed internet vs the network. Again Microsoft's WM6 is really tight vs wm5 big plus there, far far fewer 'bugs' and annoying behaviors. The "mouse" or pad is going to take some getting used to vs the treo but it isn't a big deal and many will love it from the go. I guess that is it for now, but man this is a great phone and you will enjoy it. I will say it would be nice to get a decent music app, wmp is still a joke? Common m$ watch apple and learn. The added resolution on this phone makes for a very pleasurable experience on the web or looking at documents, spreadsheets, pdf etc.. I still wish you could setup word and excel to view like a screen shot how the pdf's works so you can easily zoom in and out.. not many people edit docs and xls on a phone limited and not very usable anyway (m$ issue not this phone). Blue tooth functions extremely well and has GREAT range iMO, the treo's BT was a joke.PS this unit gets a 6th star with the extended battery being used.

Windows Mobile Done Right!

Posted on: December 9th, 2008 by Bruce Lawson

The good: Design (keyboard, screen, buttons easily accessible), optical mouse, Windows 6.1 is WONDERFUL, Today Screen, MemoryThe bad: (Standard) Battery life (Recommend extended battery), Few accessories so far. Non-standard headphone jack.Summary: As a long time Pocket-PC/Windows Mobile owner, I had to decide whether I wanted to razzle-dazzle my friends and learn a new touch-gismo operating system, or buy something familiar with a minimal learning curve. I chose the latter, especially because I already owned a big library of 3rd party WM software, and also, I was anxious to ?enjoy? the fixes and upgrades contained in Windows Mobile 6.1. Virtually everything is painless and easy now. The optical mouse makes all the difference in the world. No more reaching for a stylus! WiFi connect was completely painless. The many upgrades to Outlook email has eliminated the need for 3rd party email programs and integrates very well with other features. Most 3rd party applications designed for WM5 and earlier seem to work fine on 6.1. The increase in memory is a godsend. The device itself is very attractive, light, and fits comfortably in a shirt pocket. Battery life was inadequate for my usage, so I bought the extended battery. This IS the device Windows Mobile was meant to be. If you're not Windows Mobile (or Pocket PC) savy, you're going to struggle a while, but give yourself a chance!

samsung saga

Posted on: December 4th, 2008 by Timmo Rice

The good: its like a mini computer with a phone functionThe bad: battery life is a bit weak, upgrade to the extended battery , add 16 GB micro card and you have a mini computer.Summary: I really like this phone, I got it for $149 waiting for a $70 rebate check to make it only 79 bucks. Data plan is 29.99 and it connects with ease either wifi,or boadband. The opera browser is great for my purposes. NO COMPLAINTS HERE. Although I'm not a business user its entirely for phone, web browsing and entertainment. Kicks ass for my use. RECOMMEND IT OVER OMNIA, IPHONE,and others

Saga vs Treo

Posted on: November 29th, 2008 by Jim s

The good: Lightweight, Optical mouse, nice touchscreen, camera resolution The bad: Long form factor, short battery life, sensitive mouse, windows hangsSummary: I just received this phone. previously a Palm 700wx user. couldn't wait to get rid of the palm and say goodbye to daily soft resets.I was a little taken back by the size of the saga. long form factor. larger than the palm, but much lighter and thinner. nice for a shirtpocket, but not pantspocket!Runs WM6.1, and as such, it's quite slow and unresponsive. was able to hang the device in first 10 minutes of use, merely by bringing up the browser and going to my.yahoo. device hung loading, couldn't exit the application and device wouldn't respond to windows Start button. Reset!Touchscreen is nice, however, cannot find a way to disable it while on a call. Press your fact too hard against the screen and your cheek can hit the call end button that is part of the Call screen. Or, when ending your call, you might find any number of programs open. Unlike the Treo, I have not found a way to disable the touchscreen while on a call.The device has a on/off button that needs to be pressed to wake the device up. Apparently it's vulnerable to being pressed while in your pocket, despite being on top of the phone and requiring a recessed push. I've taken it out of my pocket most every time to find the device on with many programs open (calendar, alarms, etc).Doesn't appear you have any/much control over programming various hard keys on the device. Left and right side keys only. Windows has program for programming Fn keys, but it doesn't allow you to actually set anything up.Optical mouse is nice, but very sensitive to the touch. Cannot find anyway to adjust sensitivity. There are no up/down/side buttons. Must use the mouse in 4way mode and slide mouse. Very difficult to navigate to where you want the mouse to be, especially if your typing and want to reposition cursor.Battery life can't hold a candle to Treo, unfortunately. I happen to use Goodlink, which is either pushing mail continually or manually. If continual, it will burn the battery out in about 6 hours. Treo will go for well over a day.I wanted so much to like this phone and say goodbye to Treo problems, but, it's back to my treo for now. This one's going back to verizon, and I'll need to figure out some other Global solution. Unfortunately, Blackberry is not an option. Might be a trip to AT&T.

Posted on: November 28th, 2008 by Dewey Hamrick

The good: Eh, its a phone with a bunch of buttons.The bad: Messenger is 35 dollar download. VZ navigator also 10 dollars a month and is a pretty weak offering. I am unaware of its possible use.Summary: Messenger is 35 dollar download. VZ navigator also 10 dollars a month and is a pretty weak offering. I am unaware of its possible use.
