Samsung T629

Posted on: April 15th, 2008 by mabel williamson

The good: great phone for me The bad: it does freeze up Summary: I do agree it does freeze up but all u have to do is take out the battery wait 5 seconds and install back. It goes back to normal. That is the only complain i have and Yes you need a case for it because the screen does get scratched up. Just be good to your phone charge when not in use and it will be fine. My battery life is great it is always charge. With every cell phone you must go charge it when you get home even though it states otherwise. Be good to your phone.

Samsung SGH T629 STINKS!

Posted on: February 11th, 2008 by ben king

The good: Nice slider, large screenThe bad: phone FREEZES, low battery lifeSummary: Got my T629 three months ago and it started freezing while dialing a number. T-Mobile replaced it twice in two months and then refused to help. Told me to contact Samsung. I have contacted Samsung for help. Let's see what happens.Any one else has seen this problem with T629 or OTHER phones?

Nice Looking Phone, Solid Build, But Could Perform Better. Battery Life Stinks

Posted on: November 9th, 2007 by Nam Thong

The good: Style, Style, and Style! Unique design that you will either love or hate (most will probably fall into the former). Solid build quality. The bad: Unless you buy a case, screen will be easily scratched/damaged. Sound volume on the low side. Battery life stinks. Summary: The main selling point of the Samsung T629 is its style. Very few phones on the market right now can compare to this look. It IS a head-turner. In the end though, people will keep a phone for performance and I'm not sure if the Samsung 629 will win many longtime fans. I had T-Mobile send two units one after another, but they still ended up with the similar problem of low sound volume, even with the level turned all the way up. My old trusty Motorola V557 blew this Samsung unit out of the water when compared for sound volume and reception. When the Samsung is locked onto a good signal, clarity can be stunning, but the T-Mobile coverage sometimes leaves a lot to be desired. Dropped calls also seem to have increased since I switched from Cingular/AT&T. You know those ads from AT&T touting "More Bars In More Places"? It's TRUE! In the end, I am still returning both Samsung 629's because of low sound volume. I also prefer a flip design even though I was intrigued by the slider design. The flip design will prove to be practical in the long run by protecting the screen from scratches. Battery life is also a shortfall here. Even with moderate use (1 to 1.5 hours a day), you will find yourself reaching for the charger at least once every 2 days. If you're not a fan of charging cells on a daily basis (and I definitely am NOT), I suggest you stay away from this phone. If you start using this for text msg / mp3 / camera / video, you will definitely be reaching for the charger on a daily basis. The T-Mobile rep admitted the Samsung's big screen sucks up a lot of battery life. I am going back to a Motorola (but NOT a Razr!) where I had better overall experience.

Its a Love/Hate Relationship type of phone...

Posted on: March 19th, 2007 by Josh H

The good: Great image and video quality, awesome Mini SD card slot, great reception, awesome text/picture messaging features, sleek design, awesome graphicsThe bad: The internal wiring breaks ALOT! I am on my 3rd one due to internal wiring issues. Once you start sending a text you cant cancel it, some features have delay to them, some features feel cheap (like battery and SD card covers) battery slot can be hard to put the charger in, battery is ok but not the greatest.Summary: I really like this phone, and just because of the great features i was willing to buy replacements but im on my last thread with the wiring crap. I really like it and all but its getting old. THe screen turns blank.
