Summary Over all this is an awesome phone...for six months DO NOT BUY!!!
Pros Big display, roomy keyboard, attractive styling
Cons Side buttons hard to push, touch screen hard to navigate, no automatic screen lock, buggy texting module.
Summary I recently downgraded from an iPhone to this Samsung Impression. I really liked the idea of a physical keyboard and this phone was pretty stylish and what I was looking for. After having it for a while I've realized that it is far inferior even to other non-smart phones I've had. I've been finding that trying to lock the phone screen sometimes doesn't work properly and somehow sitting in my purse, the phone has deleted contacts, randomly dialed people in my call log and moved the "widgets" on my screen. The side button to lock the screen is somewhat hard to press and I think that's part of the issue. I would love an auto lock screen feature - there may BE on the phone and I just haven't found out about it yet.
I have found that every once in a while a text will not go through but if I shut down the phone and turn it back on the text message will go through just fine. That's unexceptable to me. I read previous reviews that it is a bug but that is still something that is very annoying.
Coming from an iPhone, I am slightly biased on the touch screen but this one is very difficult. Sometimes the thing to click is very small and you have to get your nail in just the right spot to get it to press. There is the option of having "widgets" on your home screen but they are not docked. They easily slide around and get lost.
My biggest gripe about the phone is the space bar on the keyboard. It is sort of setup to have 2 buttons. Sometimes the space inserts it twice so it enters in a period and capitalizes the next letter. Or it won't work at all after I've pressed it and makes all my words jumbled together. I've sent some pretty embarassing text messages with improper grammar and punctuation because of that. I'm a stickler for proper words, grammar in texts (what can I say.. I'm not 13) and it's very frustrating. I don't like spending extra time trying to get a text to look correct.
If these little nuances were fixed this phone would be exactly what I am looking for. But too many things are not satisfactory to me - and I admit I might be a bit too picky - and I am looking for another option. If you don't mind the little things this phone is a good basic phone without a ton of bells and whistles.
Pros Good quality and picture on screen. OK call quality. Pretty user friendly.
Cons Problems texting. Problems with the phone calls sometimes not working. Problems with the touch screen after five months.
Summary I've had mine for five months and have kind of liked it but generally really hate it. When you turn the phone off and back on you have to wait three minutes so the phone finishes "Initializing" so you can get to the menus. Sometimes when you call you just hear silence and you can't hear the other line. After five months the touch screen will cease responding. First you'll have to touch an inch away from what your trying to get to, then you have to re-calibrate it which sometimes helps for five minutes, then it stops working completely. This would be a great phone if they could just get the glitches worked out. So until then I'd avoid spending the money on this phone.
