Disappointing, but respectable.

Posted on: July 17th, 2008 by Robert Anonymous

The good: Incredibly durable, Camera is decent, Speakerphone is decent, simple layout, tactile buttons, good external designThe bad: Battery life is pitiful, Processes events very slowly, Chargers easily break, Memory is disappointing, Data port is literally an Achilles heel and mysteriously breaks exactly one month after the one-year warranty's expiration, ringtones are limited.Summary: At first glance, the phone appears like a decent design, which in many ways, it is. The Snap is quite resistant to impact and shock, and stands up to a fair degree of punishment. The camera, though basic, is respectable, and the speakerphone even comes with a cleverly-designed alternate speaker which automatically is used if the phone is closed, which prevents the phone from echoing into itself. The speakerphone does have its downsides, however: you need to be RIGHT next to the phone for them to hear you, and the volume is lacking on your end. The reception is decent, but fairly unreliable while using speakerphone. It is after a few months of use that the Snap's many flaws become readily apparent. The phone is unable to process a moderately-fast text entry, and does not make adding a word to T9 Word easily accessible (after a year-plus, I still haven't found it). The battery life is mediocre to begin with, and steadily degrades. It easily overheats if one is using the phone while charging it, which is a necessity at times. Its memory is incredibly limited, especially with its text message inbox (Only fifty!), and the photo storage. After about a year of use, the first charger stopped working due to a frayed and crimped charger. After a month of having the new charger, the phone suddenly stopped working. The data port's delicate wires had bent down and had become unusable, thus rendering it completely unable to charge or transmit data (such as phone numbers) to a replacement phone. In conclusion, the Snap is a mediocre entry-level phone that quickly degrades into a battery-deficient energy hog with a fragile, butterfly-like data port. I'd recommend against it, but if you're looking for something cheap and easy to use, look no further.

nice and simple

Posted on: November 25th, 2007 by Anonymous

for a very low price, this phone provides a lot of nice features such as a decent camera, good service, and easy-to-navigate menus. it's great for people who find "frilly" features like v-cast and mp3s unnecessary and just want a phone they can talk, message, and take pictures on. it also has useful shortcuts that you can set yourself (i guess the last person to review this phone didn't keep it long enough to figure that out). i just got it and i'm already used to it.

This phone sucks

Posted on: August 23rd, 2007 by Cindy Mayer

The good: NAThe bad: NASummary: This phone is difficult to navigate, very time consuming, have to push seven different buttons just to get to the text message part and then have to navigate even more to get to the number you want to send it to. I hate my phone and am taking it back tomorrow. As I just bought it today and it took me 10 min just to send a text message.

Not Compatible with PC software

Posted on: July 3rd, 2007 by John Macossay

The good: low price, small size, light weight, good battery life.The bad: Cannot use your PC to backup your phone book or access the calender function.Summary: Not supported by Verizon's phone management software. Not supported by Samsung's phone management software. Not supported by BitPim. Not supported by anyone's software. Thus all data entry has to be done through the keypad -- very time consuming.
